One day ,I was on my roof .It was cloudy Sunday evening the sun about to set .But I was just walking here and there and want to see a beautiful sunset. But suddenly I saw a piegeon who was sat on the empty bowl .I suddenly hide myself behind a wall and just watching a piegeon. He was looking here and there .But I realized that he was thirsty and searching the water from surroundings .But all in vain .So,he flew away .I took a bucket and filled it with a water and put the water into a empty bowl. And just started waiting .Maybe the same piegeon went here and start drinking the water quickly .This small kindness help filled my mind with happiness I don't know how but .

Covid 19 What a pandemic!! This situation concerning the covid 19 leads me to write to you, supressing the whole human race into exstreme problems with world leaders, that do not know wich way to turn. With no vaccine availible and death tolls that increase day by day its a global problem. But if we go back to the history of Israel we see how the God of Israel protected them from the destroying Angel. God told them to put the blood of a lamb on the door posts of their homes so that when the Angel of death saw the blood he passed and that night all the first born of Egypt died but God spared Israel. This is not just a story that have been write by a story book writer but its this worlds history and its in the Word of God. On another occasion Israel did provoked God in the desert, God sent snakes into there midst to kill them. But moses intervened for them for them and God told moses to make brass serpent and set it on a pole. The Israelites died of the snake bites , but for those that looked onto the brass serpent they were healed. In those days it was also a pandemic but God sent the cure. This is still ou worlds history, many years later God spoke trough Isaiah the profit. Look unto me all the ends of thee earth and be saved. Here God said look , we must take action and look and God said unto whom we must look. God spoked of Jesus Christ His Son. Jesus said if I be lifted up from the earth I will draw all men unto Me. God said we must look unto Jesus Christ that was crucifi

#Essential supplies

Since still it’s unclear whether corona can spread through food supply like for example the delivery methods of items etc whether they will be in properly precautions clean and vegetables fruits are they safe to buy and eat and even if brought need to wash them properly several times before use - all these are very tedious for elderly couples living in lockdown and at home alone. Washing veggies etc several times then cooking etc is not possible each day for any person. All these have curtailed god healthy eating and has been a tough time though.

I have found this lock down abit difficult to deal with, I have my on line classes but they are almost over. Normally I go to church and over to a friend's house, or to a shopping store for a while. My mother has a terminal medical condition and is not able stand but for minutes at a time and my dad has a broken back,, have no more family near by. I know if my mom gets the virus will be detrimental. Before you complain about staying indoors or using face cover there are lives at risk, I can't replace my parents, I am just to begin 9th grade.

I know you love your mom, because every mother is special. She gives you all kinds of happiness that is feasible and also that is that feasible. Her love is totally blind, she loves you when you are not born. She prepares everything for your birth without knowing your face. We can not describe her love and care in a few words, All words are less sesiual for mom in front of her daughter and son. She sacrificed her dream for you, She protected you when you needed it. You can feel this when you become a mother. If you have a question like below. This will solve and answer of your problem. How to make a special day for mom? Or What should cook to give a special feeling to mom? What is the best surprising gift for mom? As we know today is Mother's day and we want to give something special to her. We also know that the local market is closed due to lock down even online sites not delivering the gift related item except essential goods. Why not cook something special for your mom and give her time to relax on this day. Why not show your creative cooking skill and cook something for him. If you are a daughter in law you can assume that she is your mom and give her time to relax on this day.Here I am going to tell you a list of recipes that your mom must like. I am also going to tell you an instant and easy recipe that takes your 15-30 minutes. You do not need any expertise for making this recipe, All this recipe can cook any one Easy biscuit cake: Easy biscuit cake for thos

#Confinement: Work From Home Diary Without the morning chorus of enthusiastic bonjours and chatter between my building's guardian and its residents, the hours of the day have felt like an abstract blur. But it's the sounds that still remain I notice now, four weeks into quarantine, as well as an absence of others. What's more, the pandemic has evidently softened my grocery-monger, for the first time in two years of frequenting to shop, seems both happy and keen to chat. As the day inches along, between my cheeky sing-alongs to The Wanted Glad You Came, I vaguely remember what time it is. Over a month into confinement, I see how little I actually need. I have books, nature, a couple of outfits, and plenty of cooking to keep me occupied. That doesn't mean worrisome in the beginning. Being confined to the house has been an adjustment. I see ultra-orthodox davening in the balconies. All of this has become new normal. It's going to take a long time for everyone to be as mobile as we were before. If quarantining has shown us anything, it's that connections don't have to be purely physical. The change is radical, to say the least. Before this catastrophic situation, When I tried to book a ticket to spend my vacation time apricating, screen sarcastically looked at me and said #stayhomeanddonothing. Confinement made me realise my capabilities which I never knew I could accommodate as many errands as possible. Social distance taught me five R's. Refuse, Reduce, Reuse/

"Lockdown" a new term in our life which could be common in future however the daily works has to continue for survival. As an IT professional wfh is a little bit task to coup wid work n home tasks :( especially during covid times. Especially to single youngsters it's hard time. I utilised these lockdown period for enhancing my knowledge in finance branch especially stocks and world markets to improve my financial health and partly on cooking too :)

For me lockdown meant that finally I'd get downtime, no school runs and alot more relaxation. Its been the total opposite. I feel like I'm pulled in many different directions. From trying to reason with my youngest why its good for her to complete the work set by school online, keeping my boys from their antics in getting one over each other, to reasoning with my nearly 18 year old who thinks she knows more better, and throw in the icing on the cake, my ever lovely hubby who goes from being sensible to being goofy, well you see the point. No time to dwell on my relaxation. Personally I'm the kind of person who's always been on the go. I remember when my youngest daughter was born, with achondroplasia, family wondered how I'd cope, that was 10 years back. I managed to get through with hardly any help/support from family/friends as they didn't know how to handle that kind of child. A few years back I was diagnosed with arthritis and fibromyalgia which is a chronic condition that affects the central nervous system. Its much talked about, in fact May is fibromyalgia awareness month. My family know I suffer with arthritis, however they don't know about fibromyalgia. I live everyday with overall chronic widespread body pain, with fatigue to the point where I struggle to keep awake even after a supposedly good night sleep, not to mention the swelling and stiffness that comes with it, add to it the brain fog I get when I can't remember stuff. My son calls it fibro fog. So you see thi

Heyy guyss!! I guess many of you will read this just because u are bored ....u all must have read different stories from many walks of life...but mine is different. I am a 21 year old studying mbbs final year from home. Coz I m not qualified enough to go out and help the world.

Sadly you dont have an option for ways we ENTERTAINment ourselves, I live in the Caribbean where in the last months of 2019 and beginning 2020 until lockdown here on March 15, I drove many tourists around a very small island with the world's brightest but very rare bioluminescent bay, peoples from most every country come but China and India certainly top the list, I had such greay times in my car with people from india nice conversations of both countries, mine being so tiny, I lived how the girls and women were dressed and sooo I started watching Bollywood movies, omg, I can't get enough of my # number 1 Hrithik Roshan and SRK so well known that his initials suffice. I've seen mojenjo daro and Jodha Akbar twice each, and many more in between, I hope Bollywood discovers Vieques and it's bioluminescent bay and I hope I can drive them both around. I know the whole island and can suggest best best places to stay, none are mine.

I am from a south Indian orthodox family. I am in a relationship with a guy who is from North Indian orthodox family for more than 2.5 years. We both are already working an IT company. Before lockdown I had come to my hometown and got stuck here only. I am feeling to meet him but now he is saying that we do not have future and we will control all our feelings in this period. I say it all depends on how we convince but he is saying it is not so easy. He actually had a bad past in which he was in relationship with a south Indian orthodox girl and later she got married to someone else. This had happened in college. So I feel they both were not independent and matured enough to convince at home. But I feel since we both are earning, we can plan and convince now. We both are deeply in love but not understanding what to do. I am saying for one more year there is no worries about my marriage and all at home so we will chill. But he always feels that we don't have future. If he meets me atleast he will start talking normally again. But due to this lockdown, I am not able to meet him. We really love each other and I am so sure that nobody else can love me more than him. I miss him. Do we really don't have future ? As he says is this the right time to control our feelings? Or should I convince him and fill confidence in him, and bring our topic at home?

#EntranceExamPreparation #OnlineClassesAreMentallyDraining I am preparing for medical entrance ie. NEET. I'm in 12th currently. And to be honest, the lockdown has provided me a great opportunity to utilize my time in the best way possible. But, these online classes .... They don't leave you in peace. And these coaching institutes who are terribly scared about their profits in this academic year pressurize us to attend shitty live classes. It's mentally very exhausting. However, let's pray that we'll be out or this very soon.

Me and my boyfriend were supposed to shift in together in January and things were just not okay between us. I wanted him to shift with me as soon as possible but things were not happening the way I wanted them to happen, leaving me full of insecurities and anxiety. So finally in the end of February he moved in. Things were amazing in the start. Since we never used to get time to see each other because of the work schedules we both had, weekends were the only options. Wine and dine and lots of talking was the amuse of the date nights together. But as days went by he decided to buy a scooty in the start of the March month. He was working towards the purchase and I was busy with my studies and office works. A week after the scooty arrived home and we decided to take a stroll with it to the mountains nearby. We stay on the outskirts of the towns just near the mountains and damn and scenic beauty. And then we got to know about the pandemic lockdown. At first we were happy to get to spend so much time together, but that didn't turn out very well after 15 days. We are from a generation were we love our personal space also. So we started fighting a lot and we tried to sort things out as much as possible but really things weren't working out. We had a weird past months back. We got back together after a breakup and we had realised that we are meant to be together somehow. We always come back to each other and some how we came to a conclusion we will make things work. So after that we

So my story is different. I am 21 years old female living all alone in 3 BHK apartment in the suburbs of Mumbai. My parents and younger brother are in Bareilly which is my native place while my elder sister is in the United States which is the Centre of pandemic. I haven't met any of my family members for past two years. That is sad and it does take a toll on me. I haven't even told this to anyone except two of my friends. I am a final year graduation student and I use to stay at my campus hostel in Navi Mumbai until the lockdown was declared. Initially it was of 15 days so I thought I would stay at the campus only but I am glad the hostel staff made it mandatory to vacate the hostel and therefore I came home. I am happy and thank god that I came home. Although I live alone but still its better than living in hostel while everyone else is at home and I am only confined to one room. The problem started when my online classes and quizzes started taking place because at hostel I use the campus WiFi and since our home remains empty we really didn't take any Internet connection. My phone is an old Sony Xperia model which does not support the 4G LTE network so my phone works on the Edge network. It is difficult for me to study and my professors are bit irritated with me because I am unable to do any of the academic work be it the writeup, presentations, quizzes and assignments. It will surely affect my academic performance a lot but then I keep telling myself I will get through th

I have agoraphobia severe anxiety and panic attacks. I can go months without leaving my house because of how bad it is. But when we were put on quarantine a whole new level of anxiety hit. The times I missed doing things with family is a huge regret. My mother and youngest daughter and I all live in home and we honestly have gotten closer. We have learned to take the simple things and enjoy it. Like watching my daughter play a game and it might sound boring to people but we relax and laugh and each others company. My two oldest daughters are living in their own homes with my 2 grandchildren and I miss them like crazy. This pandemic has brought to light what is most important in life and when it is safe again I will be braver to try new things. With my mom and youngest daughter and the phone calls to my other daughters along with my grandchildren we are slowly but surely surviving and not only that I am an ARMY I love BTS so much . Their music and videos plus seeing them on social media has brought so much happiness in this very scary time. No matter the outcome we will get through it together

I was on my way back from work, riding my dad's Bajaj Discover. Recently I am seeing a lot of people on the Highway(which is my way to and from the work) walking, chatting and laughing. And the number is increasing (Especially the White haired ones) Day by Day. I wondered why they've been doing that. I mean yeah it's pretty normal for elder ones to go for an evening walk. But I never saw them doing that before(atleast not on a highway). After thinking a while I found the reason. That is, There are no police on The Highway. So the elder ones from the houses nearby come out every evening and take a walk on the highway for some fresh air without getting caught by the police. Well I don't blame them. Right?

I honestly have no idea how it happened? No. I was just sitting in my room watching a lecture as it's my senior year, and suddenly my friend texted me..'tell me something honestly' I was curious. I said, 'yeah, ssup?' 'do u still like him?' Him meaning my ex who brutally cheated on me last year for a month and I didn't even know about it. Like, it sucked that he was fooling around and i was clueless. 'nah, I don't. Why do u ask?' She said, 'I heard they broke up. So he asked me to ask you if you were still interested?' Is she kidding me? Doesn't she know? 'why would you be asking me this if you know he cheated on me with her?' Plot twist: she had NO idea he went behind my back to screw with her. 'screw I did not know that! I'll diss him, one sec.' And look how karma's taken turn because when he was busy screwing her, I was praying for karma to be real and for it to hit right when i could laugh on his face while he cried for me. Moral: karma exists people, don't screw up.

I'm trying to get together with my crush, Logan, and at the same time get Madi and my friend together. I've been told that Logan likes me too, and we hang out a lot, but it's hard for my friend to hang out cause she's quarantined, and her mom grounded her from her phone. I'm grounded from my phone, but only for today, so I haven't been able to text any of them except for on my computer. I don't know how to do this all at the same time and still have all my friendships, plus this quarantine cr*p.

The work I am doing is studying for medical entrance . Actually this a golden opportunity for us students that we got extra time for preparation . I am taking this in a positive way . I know the world is suffering . I hope better things are coming. People who have no workload can develop new hobbies or work on experting them . This is like the first summer vacation at home. So read , write , learn rather than watching netflix like millions which is of no use . You can learn new languages , set new goals, reflecting on your thoughts and finding the purpose of life. This isn’t that bad . This time is precious don’t let it slip from your hands.

Living the Uncertainty......till when!!!!!!............ Yet a warrior in me says stay up It's been three years and seven months now since I have registered myself at the University of Delhi for a doctoral research program. The research itself offers you a myriad of experiences that your life as a researcher oscillates. On the one hand, everything appears to be settled while on the other hand, it's a mess. It is more than a year and a half that my data collection process is still on as it is qualitative research and this particular domain calls for another level of investment in terms of physical and mental capacity. To give a brief picture of my work I am looking at the lived realities of people living with disabilities and capturing their voices. I was already dealing with the sensitive population where locating the sample and then convincing them for a research study is a herculean task. But I somehow managed with my skills as an interviewer and while in December 2019 I was all prepared to wind up the data collection by March/April. But things took different turn when unrest happened in certain parts of Delhi and all efforts of recruiting a sample of those pockets turned out to be a flop show. I continued my recruitment process for another four participants which were needed to complete the data process. Out of these four, I was able to meet one of them and conduct two sessions with her before the Janta Curfew on 22 March took place. Now once the lockdown began in the initi

I had a few plans for this year. And i hoped that would be better then the last 5 years . But when you make plans...other ruin them. My love life:unexistent. It is called lovelife when you receive love from a man that is interested on you in a romantic way...I cant say i dont have guys wanting me. But there is no romance so there is no love. Beside that i am strugling with the same story. Since i was little. My so called "father" tries to evacuate me violently out of my house. I call it is my house because since i was little i felt that someone made it as a present for me. Eitherway everything is damaged in the house. He messes everything i do. And he makes loud noise in the morning early so that i cant sleep, he psihically provokes me. I know his desires. He wants me to pay the bills,to make food , to take care of him as a wife/slave. I never went in a holliday abroad . He wants me to treat him as a king. But he always humiliated me when i was little and even now . I always felt that i had to help him somehow. But he wanted everything . My life, as a servent,him as a ruler ,this the only way. The last days made me change my mind. He wanted to throw me out of the house again. He came to my room and he started telling lies as : like came to him because i needed his help(when i was 13y.o. he made me and mom leave from the house.but i came back). I told him i do not need him. He said that i am against him , because i suported my mom at the divorce. After that i jumped and stoo

In April I was supposed to join a company at Mumbai. But due coronavirus it was postponed and postponed further. I was damn excited because I've never stayed alone or left my home or had that freedom. But during lockdown all the unsaid things between you and your family come to burst and sometimes they are just not worthy. Yes family time is quality time but I want to go far away for a while.

Hi, It has been 6 weeks since I am home alone in Chennai, and every one in family is in solan himachal for holidays ofcourse they went and being our native place they are at home, And I am stuck in Chennai with a house with 4 bedrooms and a hall and kitchen u can say an independent house, which needs to cleaned atleast once in 3 days. I never thaught in my life of 50 years as I have turned 50 this year, I will have to live alone without any one around. Life has become so monotonous, same chores every day getting up in morning watching the damn corona news and than after going through lockdown 2.0 . I have now stopped calculating the days. Now one thing that always revolves around my thaughts is when will I see my mother and wife and ofcourse my 2 teenaged son. In these tough times I have learned one thing,ie every soul on earth has come alone and one day will depart alone. So what is the meaning of a family and relatives, Yess, every human being needs some one to talk to and share. And why we humans make such bondings, Which we very well know one day will not exist. Now only thing that keeps me going are 2,one is FAITH and 2nd is HOPE. Faith in my lord KRISHNA and hope that one fine morning this so called CORONA will vanish from earth. I am not a writer but this is first time I am writing in my span of 50 years. I sign off with the hope to meet my loved ones asap, and hope this so called virus just vanishesh All the best Manish agarwal

Hai everyone.. I wanted to share some of my experiences about few selfish educators faced by me before lockdown and during the lockdown of pandemic covid-19. Everyone needs money for survival and this is universal truth for meeting the basic needs, but what matters is there are certain professions where you must be doing a selfless service to others. I share my own experience as an educator regarding this. I have been an educator with Masters degree in schools since 2000, worked in India and Maldives. Eventhough qualified to work in colleges, God made me to be connected with school children. I am feeling happy for this beautiful bond between my school children from Andhra Pradesh and few islands of the Maldives. I was longing for doing some special B.Ed (related to disability) course but continued with my job with sincerity. Two years back I got a chance to do special B.Ed. Now this is my second year. I happened to see some educators are so selfish, just for earning the money without dedicated work towards developing the future generations regarding their discipline or enhancing their knowledge in their studies. So I faced problems from them, trying to corrupt me, by God's grace I was doing my job with sincerity. Now, the institute where I am doing my special B.Ed, lecturers will be pretending to be sincere in completing the syllabus / curriculum prescribed by them in handling the special / exceptional children but indirectly asks us to prepare by ourself and also wil

The pace of life was so fast before the pandemic that I had almsost forgotten I have friends and family. Like most of us out there I too used to think that it's too difficult to be at home for more than 24 hours. But the truth is I am enjoying this lockdown. I got time to get in touch with my friends, my family and most importantly, with myself. I could see myself laughing when my kids laugh. I hated to help my wife in the kitchen but now I am preparing dinner for her and really enjoying it. I heard somewhere that every house tells a story. It really does but only when the people living there have some part to play. This pandemic will surely end, but believe me we won't get this time to rediscover ourselves and relive the moments with our friends and family. Be a child again and let yourself go free.

I'm tired of disinfecting the home. My husband is working, so as soon as he back from work I'm after him and telling him not to touch the surfaces. Like old days I am at the door opening for him and taking care of his things. My son is in University and his exams are finished, but doesn't want to come back home. He is happy with his friends and I'm happy for him, but sometimes I miss him a lot. Finally tomorrow he is coming home. When he will be back life will be very busy as he will be home, so will keep asking me to make something good for him and that is pain in neck. Though I like to cook, but sometimes it's too much. He will sleep in the morning and wake up in the afternoon. Well I don't blame him. I was also like him when I was of his age, so I understand. All is going fine so far. Our government is helping financially. I hope everyone is getting food to eat and shelter to live. But so many death news are giving stress. I'm battling cancer for last four years. This makes me more depressed. There nothing much I can do except keeping myself positive. During lockdown I had conference with my doctor and my reports are normal, but still some sort of fear is there. This is the first time I'm sharing about my disease outside my close family. I don't know why? May there is no one to judge me. When I went for my treatment, I had to leave my job and my employee didn't take me back. After that I went through financial crisis and still struggling. People can turn into real monste

Work.. Well it's working from home and working at home. This has definitely got me to a lot more tired up. However seems like this experience has its own beauty. The kid is all happy that I am at home even if working from home. He knows I am around and the sense of securedness he demonstares makes it all worthwhile. Annoying and ungrateful Husband and always criticizing and negative mother in-law have all the qualities to break you down in no time. The love of that little kid uplifts everything and can fill the heart. Prayers for all those suffering and gratitude to all the Corona Warriors. It takes a lot to put others Over our own self. Takes a lot.

Quarantine time makes me realise being a mom of early 20’s children can be very difficult. Both my boys studying at a university abroad are back but I feel as if spending time with them is forced as they wanna be with friends and I get the feeling they don’t wanna be with me anymore. My husband only thinking about work tensions and future plans makes me wonder that if this lockdown time is not bringing us all together what will? I wonder if my lonely life with a full house will ever be what I dream off

In A.P it is strange that poor people's schools I.e govt schools in backward areas are selected and being operated as covid 19 quarantine centers. How pity in the next academic year students have to spend in the same place . Their hostel beds were given to patients... what happend to government p.h.c s and private hospitals, hotels so many other options leaving them behind , why spoiling schools where young children have to spend too long. Disinfectants may work but not the process of disinfecting is reliable in that worthy place. Even in the same buildings by the end of may 2020 10th class public examinations might be conducted . Why this hasty decision, no vision in the execution of Corona relief.

This quarantine has helped me to reinforce in my love for my husband . Now when he is there with me 24*7 , I still feel like being with him more. After 4 .5 yrs of my marriage , I still my relationship is so fresh and beautiful like the first year . We still get tired after house hold and office work buas t the compassion for each other has grown many folds. I feel this is the time for everyone to nurture your relationship with like water to a plant. We all should promise to each other to be with each other in thick n thin. This is the greastest test which nature and God has put us into and we should promise each other to pass the test with flying colors. It is an immense pleasure to speak my heart here . Lots of love , care and blessings to Pinkvilla ... Take care everyone...of each one .... connected to you . Deepti

I don't know if this counts as a friends and family story. But i have basically done nothing during the self-isolation period. I tried to get my sister to watch Kpop videos with me, but that failed.

I do understand that this is not a good time for the entire world but I am thankful to this lockdown time for giving me a time to understand my kids and feelings of my wife. I was working or rather pushed to work for 28 days in a month continuously for 6 and a half year. I was travelling and didn't know what was it to get up with a leisure at your own time. How is the morning tea and what pleasure one derives when playing games with family. I am doing online courses and spending quality time. Also understood that only basic things matter in the life.

This year has been of headaches and heartbreaks for me as an individual. In January this year, I lost my mother. My relationship with her had scarred last year and we weren’t in talking terms since. When I got to know this year that she was keeping unwell, I rushed to see her but it was just too late. I walked into a room towards her lifeless body and I couldn’t do anything about it. I have never in my life felt so helpless . My father had abandoned the family three years ago so now it is just my younger brother and me. My brother has shifted with me to my home and since then began the lockdown. Both of us are holding each other up. The fact remains that in the pursuit of pretending to be strong and taking care of my younger brother, it has not really given me a chance to mourn. I feel it’s all bottled up inside . I had been diagnosed with clinical depression last year and now after the lockdown, my anxiety is worsening. To add to the agony, we recently got the news through the local newspaper that my father has been involved in some unethical and unlawful activities and is set to be imprisoned. I can’t go out, I can’t vent out. It is so pent up that I am afraid it might explode without warning and I wouldn’t know what to do with it. The fact that also I am the sole earner right now is making me anxious about my work. My company has been kind to give me at least half of my salary without working where some of my friends have completely lost their jobs and are at

Hello Lockdown can be both fun and boredom at the same time. The days are passing very fast but the moment you decide to sot ideal then negative thoughts start to overpower your mind. It happens with me all the time and specially at night when I go to sleep. I feel stressed, frustrated and anxious about the future and I often get panicked thinking about that I have to stay at home for the next 2 months maybe. It's not at all easy but it is really important to keep yourself busy. So whenever I feel anxious I try to distract myself by watching a series, writing poems or drawing. It's not a great vacation going on but a global pandemic that has caused a lot of suffering to people. I just hope it gets over soon and people can look forward to a better life. Stay home, stay safe

I came for a short vacation after 2 years. I took my 4 yr old daughter with me as it was only 21 day trip. However the surprise lockdown caught us down seperating the family, wife in dubai and me-daughter in india. Wife has work so she did not come with me. My office sent me notification that i am on unpaid leave since i am late to join work. I called my colleagues and they are at work without any lockdown. Now im gettimg stressed as the child's mother is distressed not seeing the child for so long. Child is often crying to see her mom and I'm regretting being seperated by the lockdown. Waiting for the flights to resume.

Our family has been working hard at following the lockdown . You know, it's been a blessing, yes, we had a couple of days where we were at each other's face, but , we are now able to TALK things through. We've been able to do things together without excusess or killing each other! We have child, sister, nephew that are frontline nurses that we have not seen in person since this began. And yes, we do realize we are not the only ones, and many families have lost loved ones. We are truly humbled and grateful for what we have. We hope and pray everyone finds atlest one thing to be thankful for. A very dear friend of mine from Hawaii always told me : " Always remember, we may have less then some, But, we also have more than many. I say that to myself everyday. Stafe safe, follow the rules, try to have patience, and remember to be grateful.

Well, there isn't actually something that bad in lockdown 4 me these days, but the problem is I dont have wifi at home, so I need to go to my dad's home (my parents are divorced tho) and what's wrong for that is that I have to go there at least 1 time per week and stay there cause I can't finish all my assignments at one take. The fact is I've lived with my mom since my parents divorced when I was kinda 7 o 8 (I'm 15 right now) so I don't feel comfortable there and more if my dad thinks he knows everything from me to give and opinion and orders when he was never there. Nonetheless, the real problem goes on when I don't have an actual religion but my dad is Arab and is strict with that until a point I just feel like he wants me there just to show off that after all he can't care for giving my brother and I our needs (like the economical support for food and stuff) but pretend I will get into his strict religion right know when he just cares abt that and knows barely nothing of what am I even up to eat or not though. So, yeah. That's it he can't have respect for the family I've been with since I've grown up (and he's never been there) he cannot come by know years later thinking I'll have to get into his rights ( women are treated like someone who serves for men and children more than theirselves) when I haven't been raised like that I've been raised to study and work hard without needing any men by my side giving support. So if does not give us anything by now ( and he'd neve

No one should be taking ANY chances! This virus is still spreading and not many people seem to be taking this seriously. It's unfortunate when some of us are following the rules, while others are just selfish about wanting what they want when they want. and being so cavalier about this.

I'd have said that I am a changed person, that this lockdown has brought me closer to my family. But then, I would be lying. Our tempers are flaring up. I can't blame anyone, we are in the same boat. On top of that, my sister is 8 months pregnant. And we are in a red zone. I am worried that I might actually end up killing someone if I am cooped up for yet another month. My town may be big, but I feel like I am in a cage.

It's been more than a month since the country went on lockdown. This is a very unusual experience for all of us and no one ever, must have imagined this in their wildest dreams.Agreed we have our own share of turmoil and struggles. Just like I am struggling with my work from home.. But the lockdown has taught me some very basic things which otherwise i never paid attention.. I can now survive with only the essentials. Nothing fancy for me. And I am keen on making it a habit.. It has given me enough time to retrospect myself and change certain things about myself.. This lockdown somehow has made me a better person.. I have always been considerate towards others.. but now i am more sensitive and sensible.. Having said that.. I now value the little everyday privileges I have.. Plus its a great time to do certain things I always wanted to do.. This lockdown has given me what was missing from my life in the everyday rat race.. And that precious thing is.... "TIME".. N.B. Thank you pinkvilla for this opportunity.. and allowing to share our thoughts..

So I'm a working mom and I have super powers. Yet nothing really prepared me for the Lockdown. Honestly my test started one day before the Lockdown , when both our Air conditioners and washing machine blew a fuse simultaneously. Normally it wouldn't have been a bother, but come Lockdown , come April , no help ,no mechanics and the heat !! I decided to take some action. I am a fashion designer and yet I mercilessly cut up two pairs of trousers to a knee length size and everyday I don these as some sort of uniform . I became reminiscent about my childhood where we washed the front porch and the backyards to cool the surroundings. I also had visions of movies of a bygone era where they sprayed water in front of palaces for the royalty to live in the cool comfort and enjoy the cool breeze that wafted indoors. So while my husband has had an epiphany that he is from an erstwhile Royal family, I've turned into this water sprayer who also lays out soaking wet towels on the floor of every room. Yes I draw the curtains and the fans are working but when your room faces the midday Sun, it's not warm it is simply hot ! Now when you have been a working mom , you don't quite know your way around the kitchen. Then again toilet cleaning , washing clothes and cleaning dishes have not been your priorities. But you got to do what you got to do. I am definite the neighbours can see me running to the terrace with buckets of water , wearing my newly cut up shorts, flimsy shirts and disheve

To the girl who is a teen and living in an abusive home, please please sneak away or send a message for someone to contact police, social services or Dept of Human Resources. They will protect you. If you go to the police they will place you in protective custody and get you your mother and siblings out of that situation. There was no way to respond to your message but I did read it. So if you’re reading this, please know there are people that would help you. I wish I could help you. I am a mom and I grew up with an alcoholic father. I wasn’t abused but I wasn’t necessarily living a child’s dream life either. PLEASE PLEASE get out, go to a neighbors home, use their phone, call Police or 911 and TELL THEM YOUR STORY! You and your Mom and siblings deserve better lives than to be beaten and abused. You must get away honey. Your lived depend on it. There’s help, its a phone call away. The powers that be have a duty to protect you! God bless you, Im praying you go get help soon. Jennifer in Alabama

#family and friends

I’m a Mom of a teen sons, living in the south. It warms up quickly here. The humidity is awful. As I age it seems to grt worse. Summers in Alabama are rough. By mid May temperatures are in the mid eighties daily. The past two summers my son went thru gaming addiction; became reclusive and gained a lot of weight and spiraled into depression. With the double whammy of heat and quarantine, we decided to have a pool installed. Hopefully this will help combat both boredom and the dreaded ALABAMA heat since none of us know if or even when school will resume, we cracked our savings open to install a practical size pool. We've wanted one for a long time but couldn’t justify it... Since Covid19 quarantine there’s little form of recreation, not much enthusiasm to exercise either. A pool should help this family of four find some enjoyment during this very strange time. I hope everyone is finding ways to cope. We all have different circumstances, but we are ALL feeling much the same. And we WILL get through this. Better days are ahead. Love to you all, J in Alabama

I am a freelancer and I work from home anyway. So working from home is not new for me. However I used to make sure I walk for two hours every day and now I cannot do that. My mom and dad are also at home and they are having mood swings. They are worried that they will meet their friends and family again. Food supply is limited. We only have rice and potato and nothing else. It is getting harder. Thanks for giving this platform to share my feelings.

Hey my name is Jesús, So I actually started dating a girl during the second week of quarantine. We have met before and we're actually close friends before all of this. It's been great, but difficult in a sense that you can physically touch or be with the other person. I guess that hard for me, specifically because my love language is affection.

Hi... here is my story.... actually mine is a quite complicated life. They is no support from my family side. I hope u guys might have a lot of relatives but to be true I never ever saw any of my relatives in my life time. Whenever I saw a people hanging around with their cousins I wonder and I long for them. Why don't I have cousins or relatives like them. The person whom I trusted and the friend I have trusted all r changed before my eyes. I wonder this was our ancestors said" time will reveal everything" but what to do our hearts are so weak to accept the reality. Everyone r hanging around us for some favour need to be done for them. Once they got bored they will kick us out of their life.

Friend in need is a friend indeed.! No wonder why our ancestors gave this proverb and still lives. I'm an orphan living on a self dependent where I lost my family long before to an other pandemic called WAR between LTTE and srilankan army. Still here I am alive and self motivated.! However I was thrown out of my building by my landlord because I am a muslim. After a long struggle and looking a place to stay couple of my friends came in handy for the first two weeks of this lockdown. From April 1-april 8 and April 9- april15. Again their landlord doesn't want me to around them hence vacated me immediately and walked almost 15 km to get into a place where I can stay till May 3rd. These arrangements were done none other than my team members for a temporary stay and for food it was arranged by my friend whom I haven't had word for a year.! With these friends around I'm confident enough that I can survive this pandemic without doubt..!!!

I have been working from home for a long time. Even before the lockdown. I am facing something during my work hours which according to me is no less than a nightmare. I feel bullied by few of my colleagues. Yes, we do not meet in physical but the kind of mental pressure I experience is tremendous. My company is very good and so are my employers. But there are a few things that go out of their notice like the one I mentioned above. Some of my colleagues try to put me down, insult me in front of others or on the personal front by talking rudely or by other means and try to hamper my work just to show their superiority or I don't know for what reason. I can't even talk to my employers about this because I feel vulnerable. I am using this platform to express my feelings. Whoever is reading this please spread my word. Whether you are an employer or an employee, doesnt matter. Workplace harassment especially by colleagues is something which I feel is a crime.

So only outing experience in 34 days. Somehow I manage to ruin my earphone which was working completely fine and I have to have my headphone. For classes, for long talks with friends, for movies or else what am I supposed to do in this quarantine. Already having a headache by thinking whats going to happen if I don't get a job this year too. But no shops with electronics are open or will open for me. After thinking a little had an idea and called a couple of shops in the neighborhood one of them agreed to give me the earphone but will not open his shop just going pass it to me from below the shatter. So now I am enjoying my new headphone. May be the shatters are down but things will be back to normal soon.

I met this girl online until I realized that we study in the same college and never saw each other before, when suddenly I received a request from her and out of curiousity to know more about her I got to know that she is in 3rd year now and so am I , isn't it fate or I would say that the lockdown led me to a person of similar interests and qualities. I will be meeting her as soon as this lockdown ends and would like to be lockdowned with her for life as we been talking already for 2 months now and feel quite much compatible for each other. :)

I got married this Valentine’s Day, ans I was flying back to Sydney after 2 weeks of my marriage. I chose to stay back here in INDIA due to Business shut down everywhere. Corona surely gave me extended honeymoon time with my partner. Staying at home, we had the opportunity to eat, cook, write and paint together. Thanking god for this togetherness. I surely feel blessed to be married to this amazing soul. #Arrangemarriagescanbebeautiful

Mid February, I came from Delhi to Mumbai to attend my niece's wedding. I had resigned from my educator's job of more than 20 years with the thought that now I would start giving tuitions and spend more time at home. Fate had its own plans in place, I slipped & had a major ankle fracture with 2 broken bones & a plaster on for 60days. It was decided that I would stay back in Mumbai for recovery. And then coronavirus entered the scene & we all were hit with lockdown. I am staying at my sister's place away from my son & husband during this crisis. After the cast was removed, I started my recovery without a professional help, using You tube for my Physiotherapy & guidance. My world changed with a slip and I was feeling locked in a room in pain. however within a few weeks, I saw the entire world locked down. I am a big nature lover & birds are my best friends. The silence has made the bird's sounds clearer, there is peace. I love to read & write. So this change has given me enough time for my passion. Though, I was a working woman, I loved my solitude. For me, being inside a house is bliss however I do miss my long walks❤️

#pet care

Pet Care:- An important part of my life since childhood as I cannot imagined my life without my pets because I'm grown up with them and kind of we've all grown up together. I'm not a mother of a human child but all that little knowledge I have in my kitty about motherhood orthe universal motherly feelings to be precise is just because of four pet pals that are my four let doggies that I look after.They made me realise the true worth of myself and all my potentials as a kindhearted human being with righteous quality of a being born a human being on the planet Earth. Ihave never realised this as my life is a very chaotic and a hectic one when it comes to working and all but now I have realised that in such critical times when all of us were quarantined due to the epidemic named coronavirus #covid19 I have discovered that how much it is essential for me to live like a human being with all my emotions of compassion, love, anger, also crying for that matter as a part of life that helps releases the emotional harmones. Whatever little I do for my petpals is actually a sort and parcel of my life and I can't imagined my life without them and an important part of my life is dedicated to them because it made me survive and realise my own inner peace in this world of known yet unknown, ignorent people around you. This is just a thank you note for my petpals who have completed me in all aspects and often unknowingly keeps me out of all such grave dangers of feltessikna nd melancholy. Th

ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOM'S DIRECTION This story is for those who think that students getting flunked or academically average can not surpass their life as effectively as those getting 70% and above.I have always been an average child and am still an average person.Through out my school life I have been a back bencher who would very easily forget the terms learned, concentrating in class had been a task for me, more so I have felt the pressure of being a teacher's daughter. It has been more than 15 years since I took up teaching as a profession.Once in a PTM during my mother's teaching days --she has been teacher for 36 years in Holy Child School Ghaziabad--a parent asked her if she could provide tuition for his two children .My mother without giving a second thought readily recommended my name. Someone would think when you can't excel yourself how can you help others do that But my mother thought differently. As God's will I started teaching them ..though initially I used to loose my temper quickly..but now long passed by years have taught me to be patient . At present I am taking classes till xiith. The best part of my job is the appreciation I receive from parents when their children show remarkable improvement. Moreover the parents feel light as l take up their stress and tension of teaching their wards. I don't think twice in helping my students even though it takes my whole day to explain. Might be because during my schooling days I wanted my teacher to be patient and

Last month, dad beat up my mom badly in an isolated road when they were in the car alone together she couldn't do anything. After he hit her multuple times there were a few vehicles passing by and mom would have cried for help but immediatly he took a water bottle and pretended to give her water but as soon as the cars went away, he started hitting her again....she came home crying and her face was all swollen and bleeding...this was not the first time as she had been abused since my bro and I were kids, (I'm 16 and my bro is 18 now)...and few days ago, he chased us out of the house when everyone is taking shelter in their homes during the lockdown ( he took everything from my mom especially money)... the thing is, he accuses my mom of having affairs with literally anyone he sees (my mom would never even think of that, she is old and a God fearing woman who had been forgiving him for all these years) and the stories he tells are all lies yet he manages to convince people even he beleives himself! Everyone is busy hiding in their homes from the virus but my family is running away from this toxic Monster who have been tormenting the family for years...

I just gave my final exam and was super excited to spend a three months holiday productively. But due to lockdown, my plan to explore every corners of my city was destroyed. My coaching classes were to commence from April. But the fees of coaching classes were exorbitant so I sat for their Scholarship exam. I worked very hard to earn a 70% scholarship on Tution fees , but due to lockdown I couldn't avail it as the centres were closed. I was insecure to pay and reserve my seat for the classes as it costs a lot. But as I delayed the online payment, all the seats of the best batch were GONE!!!! And still I am super insecure to pay as it is a lot. I am afraid to believe in myself that I can make the expenditure worth it by doing great in upcoming examinations. I am crying too often nowadays as days are passing by. I feel guilty to ask my parents to pay that huge chunk of money , I am depressed. But I've decided to tell them in one or two days. I didn't find a category for sharing lockdown stories on study issues here , so I wrote this under #Family and Friends. Sorry for that. If you have read this , may your dreams come true. May our world recover from this curse.

In the mid way of lockdown i and my friends started sharing our recipes on our group. We get inspiration after seeing each other's preparations and presentation.... We tried all deep fried items in Appe patra with less oil so that less consumption of oil n healthy as well. It's a fun learning many recipes with Rava(suji) only like idli, dhokla, dosa, gulabjam, samosa, cake etc. I also tried a maharashtrian homemade kheer shevai and kheer gavhale n some more varieties of it. These are not the usual days for me n i kept myself busy by seeing each other's creative work n staying happy n at home ... Stay safe stay happy stay home.

Days ago following a lockdown, I was stuck with a companion in an apartment. She is a friend of a friend during my stay on a certain company. We are only two persons living on a big house. With many times together I learned about her personality which is not my preference for a companion. I am more of a survivor, as years of being a sports enthusiast and a nature loving person. I know I can live in a mountain if I like to. But she is more of a passive person, she describes herself as an introvert but she never really cares about other persons surrounding her. Well, at least for me because she never really cared who does more chores in the house. I cook meals most of the days, given that I just started learning to cook meat starting the quarantine. I am vegan and she bought all the meat which I never really liked consuming, but all the meat stayed in the ref all day and all week, waiting for her to prepare them. I always took the initiative to prepare them, even though I am vegan. I killed at least 50cockroaches one night using my slippers, killing them one by one then burning them, but then she never really helped me clean the area. Most of all, she listens to all of my conversations with my friends over the phone and gives me advise about my problems, when the topic over the phone is always her. She never really realized it was her, and she gave me an advice that I should not stress about it after work. She's a very toxic person for me, that's why with a friend I decided to

Hi! I'm an introvert, so although self isolation sometimes feels lonely, I'm far from being unhappy! These days I'm focusing more to practice my art! It's so satisfying to have this much time I can spent on drawing! I'm a bit struggling to maintain my college assignment tho, it's pretty hard doing online class because I can't truly understand what is being explained...but other than that I kind of enjoy this whole isolation thing xD I feel like I have to apologize for feeling like that... Oh another thing that kind of upset me is because the broadcasting of a lot of anime is being delayed! Yes I'm an otaku or weebo or whatever you wanna call it... Anime actually has a lot of inspiring stories...when I see them work hard toward achieving their dreams, it made me want to work hard towards mine as well. Welp. That's all for me. If you bored tried checking out some of the anime out there;)

Hi. This is the story of our family in the times of coronavirus. My husband and I are both professors in one of the reputed engineering colleges in northern India. We have two children - a boy who is 21 years old and a girl who is 14. Our son is currently studying engineering in a college in a city 12 hours away. Daughter has just started class 10. All of us are typically very busy with our work and other responsibilities. As a result, we have not been able to spend time together as a family except on rare vacations. Even then, we are typically caught up with exploring new places and trying to enjoy our short time there sightseeing or having fun experiences. Thus we really have not had time just enjoying each other's company in a low key way. The forced lockdown during coronavirus has allowed us to take a deep breath and enjoy quiet time together. Household chores have been divided up. My son does the laundry and some of the washing of vessels. My daughter makes the beds and waters the plants. My husband and I cook and clean the house and do everything else. Since both of us have been cooking, we have tried several new recipes - some of which have been very tasty been epic failures :-) But we still try to have balanced meals and at meal times, we all sit down together and eat sans TV. We have been making curd and raita regularly because that's an easy, nutricious and delicious part of the meal. I have also made home- made cookies several times - since store biscuits were di

Dating apps have been quite useful in connecting with people from different streams of life. It is a wonderful platform to find single people and share the experience of lockdown and discuss life in general like introspection while looking back at some things from the past and also for discussing current state of affairs.

This lockdown came down as a big blow to me. I am a mother of two kids. I am stuck in india and my family is in abroad. It's been two months I haven't meet them. Was busy with my work and hence couldn't fly to them on time. Later it became risky to travel. There are few days when am fine but there are weak moments too when I cry my heart out. I need to hug my kids and spend time with them. When all the kids are with there mother, my kids are not with there mom. I do feel guilty at time. But then I thank god that they are safe there, happy and secured. This is from a mother's heart.. wishing to be with there kids and praying that things get better and international flights start soon. The real test of life is this.. I have money but I can't travel, I can't shop. Nature has its own way to show us that it's enough.. now the nature needs to heal.

During lockdown I have to work, because I am an IT employee. So, on normal days we used to work for 9hours daily, but now it has increased like 10-11 hours per day. Still I have no issues even I am enjoying a bit. Previously I used to wake up at 5.30am and used make my breakfast,lunch for myself and my family and in the mean time I used to get ready for gym. After gym I used to go to office directly and then 9hrs work and on the time of returning my boyfriend and I used to share some moments together. So on that whole day I could hardly give time to my mother. She has spondylitis and some other problems too, so she can't walk or stand on her own for long, either me or someone has to help her. She was losing her self confidence day by day. But during this lockdown I can give her time, we can sit and enjoy our morning tea, breakfast, lunch, evening tea with yummilicious snacks and dinner too ofcourse with endless discussions . We get time to discuss and plan for the types of food we have not had for long time and I can make it for ourselves. I can help her for yoga for healing. I am really happy to see her cheerfully smiling. And most of all I can find time for myself as well. Though I miss my boyfriend as we could not meet up for almost a month bt atleast we get to see eachother on video calls.

During lockdown days, i still have to go to work. Being a healthcare worker, it is an honor to serve our patients that needs our care especially at this critical time. Going to work early in the morning and coming home late in the evening and felt very tired and worn. My consolation is that, at least i was able to use and share my time, skills, knowledge, energy and above all my strength. May it be physical, emotional or spiritual strength that keeps me going for the last few weeks since covid 19 pandemic started. I really am so proud of my co- health workers and front liners in the medical field who unselfishly serving at bedsides and behind the scenes with all their hearts in it for humanity. It is my heartfelt prayer for most of us if not all in the field to overcome adversities that may come along with these pandemic. Always hoping for the best.God bless us all!

#Loving and Caring This lockdown has given me the lesson of life. It taught me the other way of seeing the world. I am a Animal lover and I have one dog and two cats at home. I am now spending a quality time with my kids as my regular office hours never allowed me to do that. We have started feeding strays..and it feels so wonderful. We have also started taking care of a mentally challenged person as he is mostly seen around the roads roaming. But this person made me cry on the first day when we went to gave him food. Before taking the bite he shared his food with stray dogs and then he started eating. Me and my husband felt overwhelmed by his behaviour and we never miss to give him food and also the stray. Humble request to everyone please help those who need us during this tough time. Even we are facing challenges while buying supplies for dogs but still it's really worth seeing them happily enjoying the food. Be united and lets help each other during this tough time.

Well, we broke up, to be more literal, he left. He told me things which i never expected. He said he isnt happy in this relationship, that he feels uncomfortable with me and he said he doesn't loves me anymore. It hurts. Lockdown is definitely not a good time for this because i cant distract myself and just keep thinking that where was i wrong, why am i such a sh**ty person that no one stays. But hope is a stupid thing. I still hope he comes back but what if he comes back. Nothing will remain the same way, cuz he said me that.

I have been to a lot of places, but this lockdown made me go to the place I despised. The kitchen. I have made recipes I only had at posh restuarant. It's a joyride when you know cooking is not that hard afterall. It brought out the best in me, even if the time ain't good overall. I have to be in my family home where I have grown hatred towards my extended family. Th sunny side is, I have learnt patience. I am a person who gets offended and I open the main door and go out to cleanse my soul when words hurt like swords. The quarantine had me forcibly stay at home, had me make peace with the people I live with because you know if you end up in an argument, you have to stick here, nonetheless. I cut easily off many toxic people, who I couldnt have in worst of days, because I dont meet them enough. This quarantine had me sticking to my rule: Things would get back to normal someday, your job is to choose which part of the normal you want to keep. Peace!

This lockdown is a blessing to home makers...as on usual times the women staying home sometimes feel lonely as husband and children are busy with their work and do not interact much... But in this lockdown times each of the family members share some work (no maid helpers ).. So naturally there is lot of interactions in the home and also everyone realises how much work a home maker puts in a day... Also the biggest take away is the time we are giving the nature to heal... With so much decrease in air pollution and sound pollution... Mother earth and mother earth must be the happiest of all.

#Friends and Family Well, this Corona Virus has us all experiencing what we have never imagined. Being together as family while yet apart from each other. Most of my family can work at home so this brings a new prospective of what's to come. Things will never be the same as we adjust to our new life style and way of economics. It has given me the time needed to get some things done around the home but there's only so much you can do on a daily basis. There's more time for cooking and baking and grocery store supplies in somethings are limited. The Virus has brought the world in many ways closer together as we appreciate our neighbors and friends we haven't paid attention to due to life being on a fast track. Love and appreciate family as time is precious and wait for no one.

Teen here! . School was suspended for a week before our country's lockdown. I planned to confess to this boy I really liked. Well, The government announced a enhanced community quarantine (ecq) 3 days before my planned confession. I was in s h a m b l e s. Is 2 yrs older than me and he was in my country to study english. . Well. I decided to just be straightforward and text him. I was texting him as a friend for a few days, we got really close and shared life stories until the question "do you have a crush?" came up. I didnt think my confession would happen in messenger. I decided to tell him anyway, and lucky for me, he said he also liked me! . I was sh00k- like hES MY FIRSt boyfRIEND- at that time we planned cute dates but then, just days before the ECQ's lifting, the government extended it. It consumed the day of our date. We were sad, he had to leave the country, and he has to go to America which is really far from my country, a whole different time zone, a whole different place, the other side of the world. He first had to fly back to his home country(Kor), which isnt so far from mine(Phil) , his country is 1 hour ahead of mine so we could chat easily. We are still texting through messenger, we are happy, very cheesy moments here and there. . It can work. But dont listen to me, I'm very inexperienced. Have a nice lockdown!

Love in the Time of Corona. My husband Aaron and I are on the opposite ends of the baby boom. He was born in 1946, I was born in 1960. We came together 25 years ago, an unlikely match, but we have each other and our children, and that’s all that counts. I am the hypochondriac and he is the voice of reason. But our age gap is closing in. We are both now seniors, and need to pay attention to the risks that come with age. Knowing this, I was on-board with home isolation as soon as the coronavirus started to spread, which hit the news around March 8th. We attended a family gathering on March 10th: no hugging, no shaking hands. I went food-shopping once that week, had a short doctor visit to follow up on my parathyroid surgery, and we were home from then on. Meanwhile, I was arranging for my daughter to return home from her program in Israel. She didn’t want to come home but I was begging her to leave. But there was worse to come. Aaron’s journey Day 1 On Saturday evening, March 14th, Aaron started to feel hot. I took his temperature, 99.6. By 10pm, 100.7. He took a Motrin and slept through the night. Day 2 7:45am. Temperature 101. Sore throat, sniffles, a cough. By 2pm, 103.1. We switched over to Tylenol after hearing the warnings that Ibuprofen is harmful to corona patients. Our doctor said there is no reason to go to the hospital and get a test unless Aaron couldn’t breathe. Days 3-6 Temperature varied from 99-101 and fluctuated all day and night. Aaron became p

I am an introvert and single for 16years(a childless - opted due to alcoholic, irresponsible, lazy and unemployed husband who would not divorce for fear of losing financial support from wife - widow) in self isolation from my 50th year. I enjoy my freedom to spend all my time in browsing the internet, experimenting new arenas of business, gardening, cooking and sleeping at odd hours - 2am to 10am ( sick of work schedule from 4am to 11pm and journeying between work place and home in my youth upto my 50th year) Now I am healthy - except for bouts of sinus allergy for 4months a year. I consume spices - cloves, pepper, cinnamon, jeera, garlic, ginger dry and fresh, turmeric - milk and fruits in such large quantities that I spend more on them than my clothes a year - approximately 30,000INR! But my health and my youthful appearance(I look like 30 with my regular hair dye) are an invaluable compensation for that! This self isolation imposed by govt is in no way different from my regular life. I think this is a luxury that every human being must enjoy for as much time as he is able. This needs descrimination between goal and ideal. You must have a goal but to reach it you need not break your ideals. Resourcefulness is a positive trait of character ad long as you are magnanimous and humane.

#work As I am a blogger by profession, I already work from home. So not that change in my work front. What I am really missing is the normal schedule of my life. No early morning jogging or morning walk. Also there are many vendors who used to come to sell veggies, flowers at our doorstep. But now they are not coming due to current situation. I am missing the regular hustle bustle on the street in front of my house that marks the beginning of the day . I miss myself roaming around the street in search of my story for today's article. But let's hope for the best. Good day is on its way. Just a little bit of patience and everything will be fine. #staysafestayhome

Lockdown has made lazy people lazier and hard workers more hard working. It's tough to manage a household, two kids and a spouse whose needs are similar to of the kids. At least one can expect the kids to understand but same cannot be expected from the spouse. Throw in in-laws on top of this. Sone pe suhaga..

#child care

#hopeandfaith : I am a mom of two small children and a full time student. Well, I was a full time student. I just took an "incomplete" and postponed my classes as well as opted out of spring courses. So right now it's almost as if I quit school. I had to do that in order to look after my two small children who don't have daycare to go to since shelter in place and lockdown. All day I run around my kids, take care of their needs. I have also stopped working out and doing art (I am an artist on the side) because it is hard to look after two small kids, do dishes, laundry, cleaning, etc. I get exhausted by the end of the day and have no energy left. My husband works from home full time. I have put on more weight due to not watching my diet and not working out. This pandemic has been hard on everyone. I only have my mom and no one else on my side of the family and she lives 1000s of miles away. Right now to me, my life feels like the worst but I know there are people who are in worse situations than me so I keep trying to have hope and faith

My dad died on April 15th. We didn't get to be with him or visit him because the hospital is in lock down. Only 10 people are allowed to attend both the viewing and grave side service(can't even have mass in church). I never thought something like this virus could affect us(PA small town) but it has. My dad can't even have the military send off he deserves.

#family and friends

Im a Scorpio and introvert, so this epidemic isn't really effecting me as far as socializing. My 2 cubs and husband are my only priority in life so I'm enjoying this time even more. Bc not only does it give us time with those who matter. It's humbled us to realise not anything in life is promised.. Life, income/ job, etc is promised. Hold your loved ones close they matter.. not the material world. Cause at the end and beginning of each and everyday they are what matters. Don't get caught up in life, every second needs to be treasured.

#kids quarreltime I have a toddler and a 4 year old at home. Not to forget I am working from home as well. So as the lockdown goes- my kids are stuck up with a mommy who is either busy with household chores or in sulking in front of laptop... when I do get time I try to teach them something new and undeniable they dislike it. YET.... I have come to realize they are more than happy to have me around them and for me - am thankful they r safe and with me. Holidays are one thing but with lockdown I have come to enjoy the simplest of gestures of love and affection.... Guys- enjoy the family time - it's so unlike we ever get this again..

Lockdown... Stay in home to stay safe... But it's not chill for students and one who are facing tough time in managing work... No doubt, we enjoy vacations, but being limited to place and no access to library is such a worst feeling in itself especially if you have to work on your thesis really fast. But this is more pathetic for those who are living in daily wages. Wish this pandemic will end soon.

The lock down has made me stronger. It has forced me to take a real hard look at myself and make changes. I ended a toxic relationship prior to the virus hitting full force. As a result I have been unable to travel, which has been a blessing. I have no doubt i would have continued the toxic relationship as my ex boyfriend lives in another state. I have had a lot of time to reflect. I have changed qualities in myself that I believe have contributed to my dysfunctional relationships. I have had time to mourn the death of my mother who died in July of last year. I kept myself busy in the past by working, going to the gym and hanging out so I wouldn't feel her loss. I have been doing a lot of crying.praying and setting healthy boundaries with others. I read my Bible daily. I can honestly say, I am feeling better and at peace. I have also been scrapbooking which once was my passion. I have two adult sons who I frequently contact. I wake up every day with a feeling of gratitude. I stay positive and hopeful believing that With God everything is possible.

i have gotten to experience a bit more with ramen noodles, originally my family stocks up on them simply because they make for a quick meal whenever our schedule is full. however now that we're stuck at home, we get to add soy sauce, white wine vinegar, sesame oil, and other spices to the ramen cup to see if we like it. my sister and I have also been getting into more 80s music and 80s remixes, and its been a great bonding time. i do miss my friends but we've been keeping in touch best we can :))))

#pet care

my sister got a therapy kitten for when she went off to college, and I picked him out because he was a long-haired ball of energy. now that my sister is here living with me and my family, and she spends a lot of time at her friend's house because they work together, i get to spend time with her cat. although his name is Gwydion, we have dubbed him "bitty boi" and "furpig". he loves chasing things around, whether it's your feet or a string, and his favorite things to smack around are hairties :) he is a very person oriented cat, so whenever i go upstairs to work on homework or take a nap, he'll follow me around and keep me company until I go back downstairs. he'll just lay down next to me or by my feet and take a nap until i'm finished. he's such a sweetheart and i'm really glad that i could enjoy his company <3

Have you read that thought "After lock down if you dont come out with a New skill, more knowledge, Fitness and exercise then it means you never lacked time, you lacked discipline. I am so proud of myself and glad I have been doing all three and achieved Success as well. I diligently exercise and do yoga for an hour, have been participating webinar talk shows and various enriching workshops. This lock down has given me gift of health and fitness and have become a fitness freak, I just cant think of missing my yoga even for a single day. And I enjoy the web talks with Principals of different schools and relish the workshops.

Well I was being the laziest person during the time of Quarantine. When it all started I thought it's gonna be enjoying. In the beginning we used to have like a lot of fun we used to have yummy food , cleaning the complete house but one day when we received a message from our college it was really shattering. They informed us as a part of Medical Health sector we are gonna be tuned in Frontline to help with Corona crisis. I didn't know how it's going to be and I saw some sort of worry in my parents Eyes. Well thanks fully we were not called. But from that point I felt a responsibility and I started conveying the cleanliness message and and methods of prevention about this virus and more over I became more serious towards my studies so I can soon be among those proud full people who are spending their days and nights to save us thank you

I have heard and seen people going out to get onions, sugar and groceries at low rates. They say buyers get onions for as low as rs 5 per kg and sell it for rs 25 per kg. I really pity those poor farmers who have sell off at such low prices because of the lockdown. So in-between people make money. Is this God's will or people in command. Ver very sad situation.

It was such a, hard time for us as a, family to see it lying dead on the ground near the front door of our house. We will miss it dearly. Im still mourning for its death.

It has been a great lockdown with so much new experience in my life. Came to a friends house before the lockdown for the school holidays but got really locked due to the virus wide spread. He has 3 daughters and lived in a big house. I found that the entire lockdown was a vast difference in my life because I did many intresting things in the family such as cooking, babysitting, housekeeping and gardening. At times it is really tire some but at the end of the day I enjoyed doing all the task.

Since the day I started chatting with him, I have known myself better. He is inviting me for meal in his place. It is going to be our first meet. Shall I go or not? Can anyone suggest?

In lockdown we have come closer to our families in such a fast growing nation. With advancement of technologies we were not even able to have dinner or breakfast at one table with each other sharing their thoughts and experiences of the day their tension and all. But due to this lockdown we are like a bond come true we never emagined that the happiness which we are seeking outside or in the virtual world lies within our family we were just not giving our efforts to this group of people instead we were investing our valuable time to some invaluable people in our life. It is the fact tah even if you 100 friends u would call only 5 or 3 your best friends even those friends are not with you only you with your family. I'm not against the friendship but through my experience only your family members are your first caretakers.

When i am writing this it will be 31st Quarantine day for me in this lockdown period at Sector 28 Noida(NCR) India, where i stay alone. Some nice things started happening to me at this stage..i must say prior to this i was a heavy smoker, but due to lockdown here as non of the cigarette shops were opening so i invested my time into good productivity by experimenting with different world cuusines and my tar intake just got below zero, i have not taken a cigarette since 25th march(one day after Mr. Narendra Modi announced the lockdown on 24th March) i started making paints and portraits of different people i love or like which i have never ever dreamt of painting their portraits. I started grasping my knowledge from different sources be it in the field of science literature arts psychology or in the demographic locations of several countries, i also started painting canvas portraits and clicking on things i always found myself interested upon. At this point of time i also started realising the priorities of my life and I realised who the real closed ones are and not everyone is ur friend. Meanwhile I was missing the Masala Soyachap on which we used to drool together at Sector 18 Noida as it has already been a month i have not taken soyachap since, prior to lockdown we used to visit hari om soyachap wala for his masala chaps where we used to visit 3 times a month or more. But i realised lately that it was not the soyachap i miss, I miss my companion, its been over a month I have

I'm having a really hard time, being stuck, here in self-quarantine. Yes, I understand that these premises are necessary and some people may feel very lonely but for me it's actually the complete opposite. I tend to radiate towards myself and when I have friends over I let them touch my things as long as I still have privacy. And privacy is very Important to me, it makes me feel safe. But right now? Living in a 4 bedroom apartment with 3 kids in it, they tend to go through my things, especially during class, resulting me getting detention. And for the others? The parents? Oh, they make fun of me. They call me names like ugly, fat and dramatic. Yet, they don't know how I vomit almost every single meal that I take.

The biggest problem in the family is your parents. Either they’re too optimist or they’re religious. I have both of them and they’re more dangerous than the virus itself. Social distancing with the neighbors? Huh... what’s that? They think heat will kill the virus! What’s more , the granny has her own mind. Even in lock down she’d slip through the house and reach the derasar (jain temple) which is closed, but she could receive the blessings. Our neighbors are even more intelligent than the virus, the guy would go everyday to his farmhouse where he has veggies and the hen, to get the daily supplies! The world I live in might be posh from the outside, might be the residence of the lawyers, tax consultants, builders.... but its the same as the people confused migrant labourers. There’s no difference. Now who’s winning the war???

I couldn't find the #ME section as I wanted to share the things I am doing for myself. So, I might be one of those people who ain't bored yet due to lockdown. Yes, you read it right! I am not yet bored as I keep indulging myself in something or the other. I have many hobbies, one of them is art & craft,so I keep on trying making new crafts and painting with the limited stationery I have. Due my regular hectic schedule I don't get enough time to exercise or meditate, I am glad I am able to do that as well. I am a passionate and experimental cook too, so I try varieties of menu in my kitchen. Also, I watch one - two hour a day movies or any web series. I personal feel this is the opportunity we have been blessed with to introspect and reinvent oneself. Even if you don't have any hobbies, this is the time to develop one, learn something new, don't just let the time pass without trying any novel thing. Stay home stay safe peeps!!! Make the most of this time!!

It is time to start seriously trying to date and weigh my options. And I need to strengthen my social network and find some friends. Because being divorced, childless, self-employed and single during this pandemic is an eye-opening experience. It's one thing to be consumed in work and building. It's another to feel as if you need a social network for protection, emotional mental and physical support, and just the camaraderie. First I was courageously climbing up this hill of success and now I'm isolated on an island of uncertainty. And seeing all these people who are quarantined with their spouses, all there meddlesome children hanging about their necks and waists is hard. The other day I was driving down the street and affluent community and I witnessed a family playing volleyball in their front yard. At the yard was really big and the house was probably about six thousand square feet they had about five cars in the driveway. And they were so happy And one lady was even dancing as she was waiting for her chance to hit the ball. And there were children running and laughing. And I literally burst out crying because their quarantine experience looked like they were at a resort on family vacation. Whereas mines looks like some Urban depiction of the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks. But I don't even have a "Wilson" to talk to. Even more disheartening is on separated and still legally married. And I occasionally check my ex's Facebook and he still blessed with the job I helped h

I'm quarantining alone. I am self-employed middle-aged, divorce with no children and I I'm a female. After graduating from an HBCU over 20 years ago I have relocated out of state and here I am. I just thank God that I have all the food and resources that I need in my home is comfortable. And I'm able to still maintain my bills. At one point I kind of panicked I regretted being alone and thought about backtracking to an extra 2 to see if maybe we can support and encourage each other during this quarantine and help each other out if need be. But I realize that was a waste of time and energy. So what I've been doing is praying a lot reading Psalms 91 and trusting God to protect and cover me. I'm getting ready to buy a gun, start a garden and although I've never been one to watch much TV I have been finding motivation and entertainment and watching Netflix in Sach. During times like these I think it's good to watch movies like Alexander the great, Troy, apocalypto, the madam CJ Walker story, read up on Harriet Tubman etc. These type of movies reflect courage in the face of adversity. And it reflects those who lived during times of a much more challenging than now and they still prevailed.

So here are some tips I am going to share to stay sane, healthy, peaceful and engaged during lockdown- 1)Figure out the area you wanted to work down if you had that extra time in life for me it was meditation. 2)Prepare a to do list for the next day or week and check out when you complete those tasks 3)First thing in the morning wake up and do pranayam. If you can't wake early doesn't matter. Don't have a time boundary. Time is a myth. At Whateve time you get up first do some breathing exercises, yoga. 4)Meditate-meditate-meditate. This is the most important thing among anything you want to do. If you are a beginner try guided meditation on YouTube. Personally I am liking Deborah King guided meditation. It's there for free on YouTube. 5)Drink some herbal tea and enjoy time with nature. You can listen to birds chirping, the fresh air, the warmth of the sun. 6)Listen to motivational or if you are spiritual then those videos- trust me it really keeps you positive and in the right direction. Make a habit to listen to atleast one motivational video of your choice. 7)Now it's time for some household chores- cleaning, cooking etc...learn new recipes again from You tube. I kn

What a mess we are all in right now. COVID 19. Wow. But there is a saying though, with all the bad, there are some goodness in it. Same thing here, families are together, daddies who have not been with families, wife and children, well god has granted you this special time. Children away in another states who manages to go back home, well you can see your parents n spent time with your parents and most of all, all of us are safe and we are with our loved ones. It will be easy to handle normal children and make them understand the situation but has anyone of you thought of how parents and families with Autistic children are couping with the situation? Well its not easy but we do what we can to support and be part of these situation. The government should be specific in certain situation and try to help us parents too. Its difficult for us to apply for the help if the rules n regulation and requirements are general because we do not know where we stand in terms of applying for the help needed. So it is my humble request please include us parents of Autistic children, autistic children themselves and special needs children. We too exist and having so much of misunderstood information, are we in the criteria of help or not, is our children eligible for the helping funds or not etc etc etc. Thank you, god bless sray safe.

Me and my husband, our family consist of just two of us. We are following all quarantine rules laid by the health experts in all way. We are on the verge of optimising everything in the best way like consuming less electricity by switching off all unnecessary bulbs,electronic gadegets etc. not cooking scrumptious meals but defiantly having healthy meals, using less water by resuming RO water at washing or flowering of the plant or cleaning of vegetables etc. We have refrained ourself from using unhealthy eating habit and lifestyle and indulging ourself into healthy lifestyle and optimising resources needed in our day to day life . Minimisation is what helping us to stay at our best at current scenario .

Am spending my quarantine with families and books.. I am reading alot of books recently. This is my me time. Am taking things positively. Miracles happen every day. Not just in remote country villages or at holy sites halfway across the globe, but here, in our own lives... This is the time where we realized how much we need our families and our work in our life. We have been taking things for granted.. And thinking about losing them make our heart sink. Wish you all a good quarantine. Thanks to all The Frontline working for Us to make things right. Stay safe Stay healthy.

#family and friends

So, yeah it's been very difficult for all of us to stay indoors and isolated from all our family members! It's the toughest time! But we have to follow the rule and guidelines, it's for our own benefit and for our country as well. Well, let's just not lose hope in this critical situation. Let us all hope for the best! In sha Allah! May Allah forgive us all and settles down this situation very soon. Ameen!! :) :*

The quarantine has given a chance me to look beyond the usual. A greater insight into the person I am. Basically for me it is a time to be with my family, taking care of them and also to use this opportunity for self-assessment and self-healing.

Is this supposed to be uplifting? My story isnt. Lost my job in late February due to negligence. Found another one early to mid March, and was very elated bc I was going to still have a cash flow during quarentine. That's when I found out that I was ineligible for hire and was terminated before I began. I live paycheck to paycheck, bc that's how my family lived growing up. Unable to find work im qualified for I have less than $5 that I'm trying to stretch. My food is getting low, and my lease ends this month. I'm literally tearing my hair out in response to all the stress. I know the stimulus checks are coming but it won't be enough to save me in time. When this first started I knew that the virus would kill me, or I'd die of starvation. I've never been able to afford health insurance, and I definitely won't be able to cover a lengthy hospital stay. I literally wake up everyday expecting an eviction notice.

#family and friends

I am a senior citizen and I lost my wife about a year and half back so there is no one with whom I can share my intimate feelings. since I keep myself in the house due to lockdown I communicate with my family members and friends using WhatsApp , phones and messenger but each time the talk is about the same topics the same situations and the same news dulling my neurones. however i do some work on laptop . ok no complaints. Stock market it is my good pastime but fake news and repetitive messages on social media irks me.

#family and friends

I live on my own and all my family lives interstate . As for my friends, I have only seen one since self-isolation became necessary. I speak to family and friends on the phone but I am immensely missing seeing them in person. My tv died at the start of self-imprisonment. I then spent far too much money on a brilliant 4k Oled tv. That has made things a little easier. And my cooking skills are so much better.

#family and friends

Lockdown is a opportunity to spend some time with family and I'm spending it well. In this hard time I got an other chance to live my childhood again.

I am girl who reads in class 8 .I always wanted to stay with my family members at home. this is golden period of spending time with family ❤️

The only thing keeping me sane during these hard times is taking care of my pupper. Playing, feeding and making sure her needs are fulfilled. Otherw8se it is just a routine life

#family and friends

Being at home is quiet boring because I am used to going out many places but know I fell all stuffed up staying at home but with family is the only thing to keep me busy

#family and friends

Really, this lockdown is going ultra terrible for me. I cant live without meeting my friends~ I guess my house is filling me up with negativity and distress. And i aint able to help myself. I do get weird dreams, and wake up with severe headache daily. I wanna cry and howl but i cant! Hope all the readers are doing good in this hard time unlike me. Thanks Pinkvilla!

Sister-in-law's quarantine I had a cordial relationship with my elder sister-in-law. I always thought of her as my older sister and supported her in every decision. Never had any bad feelings for her too. She is quite outgoing and had a job so she never bothered with household chores. And I never ever instigated my in-laws about it either, as to why only I am the one doing the chores and not her. By the way, I forgot to mention that I have a joint family. This quarantine, forget about everything, we living under the same roof was quite enlightening. I had the best experience, that actions speak louder than words.

I have exhausted all my savings and now I think I will die of starvation. Everything is available here in my neighborhood but unless you have money you can't buy anything.

I am single and was made redundant when Covid 19 struck. The first 2 weeks of social distancing were easy as I'm used to being alone.Now it's getting harder. I'm bored. And if I don't watch my thoughts I can get anxious and fearful about money and my future. But I'm thankful for the prayers and support of my family and friends, we speak about text all day. My faith in God gives me courage and strength. I take it one day at a time. Xx

#Quarantine: In the initial days I thought of doing everything that I could not do due to my busy schedule in normal days. Apart from doing my job from home I engage myself in reading stories, painting, crafting, calling my friends and chatting and so much more. But now I feel I cannot be Overproductive any longer. The experience is new that is why full of uncertainties. Hope to come out safe and healthy from this dire situation.

I’m a CNA at a nursing home. My residents are quarantined to their rooms, only the ppl that need fed or direct supervision when eating are allowed out in the dining room. They’re more confused and depressed bc their families can’t visit them. We’re short staffed, but doing our best to care for everyone.

A bit uncomfortable with the terror stories I heard about Branch Managers getting slapped and reprimanded over violations in social distancing, I started off to my destination with lot of trepidation. As expected, there were many senior citizens sitting on the steps of my workplace much earlier than our business hours. So I had to start my tried and tested speech. Some got up and stood in the square boxes drawn by the gram panchayati people for enforcement of social distancing. Others were wondering why I was barking so much on a Monday morning....One or two who understood the message started urging for me to others in. Still some were reluctant! Finally, I called the local body to send police. A tall and dark guy who reminded me of Tamil actor Vishal arrived with a magic wand also called " Laathi" in many Indian languages....Bas phir Kya tha? Sab line pe aa Gaye! A little after ten minutes, line went away with the dust of that police motor bike.... All that they are concerned is Modi dhoodu ( money) and fear of Corona is the last thing in their minds....!

#Study Well am a student preparing for my entrance examinations. You may think what's new in that but yaah I am here to remind everyone that this quarantine period is nothing but a battle between us and the virus. But that doesn't mean that we should leave all our works and constantly be in the state of fear. No yaar Nothing like that. Just divert your thoughts on to your works and family, give importance to them. And yaah remember this too will pass away.

Me and my husband are far apart due to this lockdown. It's so hard. My 8 children amd 2 grandchildren are with me and it's really hard to think of different ways on how can i feed them until this pandemic ends. We have no more source of income. My children grow up in the city, they don't know how to live a life in province. But I'm so fortunate and proud seeing them planting rootcrops and vegetables. They begun to adjust on the situation. In feww weeks time we can already harvest from their vegetable garden beside our house. My children love to play a lot spending more time on online games and PS4. And even on planting vegetables, they said it's just like they are playing minecraft, gardenscape, housescape and others. It's funny but amazing.

My 16 yr old grandson is in Care and is placed 4 hrs away from his family, in Sydney. At Easter, FACS ‘allowed’ his mother and I to meet him half way, at Moss Vale (NSW) and we could ‘drive round’ for 2 hrs with him . HOWEVER, we were stopped by Police who told us what were were doing was illegal and that our grandson should have been brought to us, so that he could see ALL his family (yes, 2 at a time as per the rules!) . We luckily escaped a big fine with a wonderful, caring Police Officer. FACS think they are GOD and what they say GOES!! The sooner our boy turns 18 and is OUT OF THEIR CARE next year the better!

So about last week I broke up with my boyfriend because he was super toxic. He was rude to me and my friends and would spam me every. Single. Day. Even if I didn’t answer for FIVE MINUTES. He would curse at my friends and make them feel worthless and when I broke up with him he tried guilt tripping me into taking him back, but I didn’t. My friends contacted him so they could defend me but he just acted like the victim, but luckily my friends didn’t trust him. ANYWAY THE END.

Hi Its lockdown and it looks like life has given me a wonderful picnic time to be with my toddler !

I lost my Aunty in January, 2020 due to heart attack ! She was just 45 years old, younger than my Mom. She was the one with whom I was soo close, shared my every bit of stuff going on in my life , she was my Mother to me..I praised her , I loved her a lot. But, before leaving us all , with God's grace somehow she got the chance to come at my In-laws hone..my home after Marriage! At the same day she had her bday as well n we celebrated it very nicely with the family , where she was overwhelmed:) Just like me she was fond of lipsticks , the next day before leaving from our home she saw one of my lipstick shade n asked me can I take this? I was like NO it's my fav too ... U buy another one ! That time I felt I reacted normal n there was nothing to think about. Even my Maasi never felt bad or anything it was kind of ok with us both, we never argued or got upset on this types of things. Later on, I got buzy in my everyday routine and everything was normal! One Morning after a month I got a call from my bro ..that Maasi got an attack n she is no more! Everthing was just fine n was goin on well n suddenly this happened! So, well again after this shock in few days I tried to overcome n got in routine. But, a day came ...one of the these quarantine lockdown days, I suddenly felt soo bad n sad deep inside my ❤️.why? Because while laying in these lazy days I realised what a nuts I was? Why didn't I give my lipstick to Maasi? She was my everything so why I got so mean that time just

I am a smoker used to smoke 1 or 2 ciggies a day and my family don't know about my this bad habit. So when lockdown started I smoke some of ciggies on late night on terris when every family member was sleeping but i was too afraid while smoking and it did not gave me peace on opposite it gave more restless ness. So I trashed the remaining one's and now it's been 16 days when I smoked last tym. I just don't want to smoke again but i am still not sure about myself after lockdown I am going to smoke again or not.

It has been hard on people to go through this quarentine but for me I have been in quarentine for almost half of my life so passing time was not a big deal and I even started to love spending time with myself. It may sound weird but i love talking to myself when I am alone and sometimes even when with people I don't like sharing my thoughts to anyone cause your secrets are never safe with other people. I enjoy many hobbies too and pass my self judgments which also helps me be more better in them and not feel judged. I love to sketch, sing, write songs, poems about everything in general whatever rhymes cause no one reads them no one judges me or laughs at me. I love reading novels and i have even witten 7 shorts stories of my own too as I said I have many hobbies and its very rare of me to get bored. I am not a social person as anyone can tell but you would never know that if you know me in person I was not a nerd or quiet kid of school i was more of a popular one and no no heartbreaking story or anything changed me as I said I was like this spending most of my life in my home kind of person. I am not restricted to go out or something atleast not before the quarentine. I just liked to hang out only with few people and mostly didn't feel to go outside at all. I feel that because i didn't go outside much or had much independence growing or as a teen I started to develop into what I am now. I am not scary or weird and i was popular not good at studies at all but doesn't fail just

I am a single working girl and lives in a studio flat by myself. I have stopped listening to Corona news for sometime and the major side effect was that on 5th April 2020 when the entire UAE was under 24hrs lockdown I reached office, I ignored all the signs on the way to office empty road, no joggers, empty parks, lot of parked cars because office is half hour walking distance then post informing manager left by 10.30am. When my friends, family, relatives, neighbours are complaining about boredom at home I wish I could get atleast one day off as my company falls under exempted company. So people don't understand the value of getting this free time where they can regulate their body clock, catch on sleep, learn a new skills, understand eachother, however I am still waiting to get some free time.

#family and friends

Well, I stay in hostel and they basically dragged us out so I got back home and it's been one month and over, that I'm home. Talking with my friends over a call and playing games with them was never so fun trust me! I have pets with whom now I can play and having goof night sleep at home which I never thought I would get in middle of April! Sitting in roof, looking at the sky, the cool breeze and no communication with world, though for a certain time but yes, I can find my peace in that. And this time is best for creativity like the real ones, which are related to thinking that we always lack. This is the time when you can finally get some ideas about novel or stories or composition of songs or poem. This is a freaking best time. Don't let it go.

#child care

Brought me more close to my daughter. Social distancing lessened daughter- distancing, ofcourse mentally. Also increased my avid reading. Appears to be a blessing in disguise. Ofcourse the virus was unwanted universally. Still it has bonded my relationship with my daughter much more firmly than even M-seal!

Good evening. Tomorrow 14 th April is our Vishu festival,new year for keralites. On this day in Brahma muhurthum we have to take darshana of lord Krishna adorned with beautiful yellow flowers called as Konnapoo which is his favourite.it is believed that this sight in early morning will bless us with all prosperity through out the year. Unfortunately this year due to lockdown we could not get the Konnapoo for dear Krishna as Markets are closed. Therefore myself managed to get some flowers from a nearby building premises and thus adorn dear Krishna tomorrow. April 15 is my daughter's first wedding anniversary. I will not be able to visit her to bless her due to the lockdown. Another matter is on March 18 , I had come to visit my mother and stayed with her for 2 days. During my stay the lockdown was declared by Modiji and thus I am still staying here with my mother and my husband is observing vishu at our home alone without me. Thus myself, my husband and my daughter are at three seperate places for this vishu.Today I feel like humming the song Zindagi, kaisi hai Paheli haye, kabhi yeh hasaye, kabhi yeh rulaye. Inspite of all my worries, tomorrow morning when I will see my dear Krishna in Brahma muhurtha I will thank him for the good things blessed to me and pray for all who are ailing from Chorona and pray to keep everyone safe. Thanks Rekha Menon.
