I am not sure but it seems the older I get the more I internalize things and worry. To put this bluntly should we watch the news or stay away and hope for the best? I am ever so hopeful each day when I turn on the news I will get something positive to help me feel better about life in general. I keep hoping some country will find a cure for the virus or at least something to lessen the symptoms.
My wife tells me not to watch the news as it gets me so wound up. She is of course right. Today I watched as all sides in our country are at odds with each other. The police are worried they cannot test their officers as not enough tests are available. The police chief is pleading with our government as it was just reported a whole basketball team was tested when sick people in critical condition are not able to be tested.
All the big news agencies are critical of our government officials for not being better prepared for this pandemic when they were briefed back in January and told of the upcoming medical crisis. We have nowhere near enough protective equipment for our healthcare workers and drs.
The people of our country are extremely upset that celebrities and athletes are getting preferential treatment when it comes to this virus.
Lastly I read where the president claimed "All I see is hate towards me at any cost". I have never seen such a mess in my lifetime.
I hope this is not to controversial but my question is do you want to watch the news and know what is going on or is it just to much to deal with right now? I myself want to watch but for hope. I am praying something positive will happen to save the people of this world.
I know this forum is for spine issues but by opening a discussion about the virus will bring unpleasant things to light.
God bless us all
