We, residents of Western countries, are used to the life of comfort and plenty. We are used to the endless supply of food, gadgets and fun. We are used to having mature and mostly efficient healthcare systems available to us all the time. This is about to change, literally overnight. But I also know that people get used to a lot of things. It is only during trying times we learn our true selfs and what we are capable of as human beings. I know that I am prone to anxiety and insomnia, and both are in full swing right now. In these times of crisis, I find great comfort in reading war-time stories of stoicism, courage and resolve. Our British friends here on the forum (hi, @plum!) can be very proud of the phrase that was coined by their ancestors 80 years ago: Keep calm and carry on. It was our American president Roosevelt who said: The only thing to fear is the fear itself. I also find comfort in doing something useful. My anxiety literally went down when I brought my elderly neighbor groceries from the store. I feel much better when I can reassure somebody else that we will be OK. I feel much better after I donated money to the local musicians union doing fundraiser as they all lost their income abruptly, at once. Find the ways to be useful and keep calm and carry on!
