It's frustrating, but we won't know for a little while about how many cases there are.All along I have been saying to prepare and telling people how to diagnose, treat naturally, how to use OTC medicines, differetial diagnoses, nasal rinses, Vitamin D, C, diet, lymphatic drainage pump, garlic, home made cough syrup, etc.
When I say, don't worry, it means be prepared, learn skills, be measured, don't panic. One should be concerned when it increased in the number of patients, gets deadlier, causes deaths, many more hospitalizations, more and more tents, states of emergency, routine governor meetings, state pandemic planning sessions, blah blah blah.
The more you are prepared, and learn, the less you are concerned. Most of the time, the world is not ending right? People think and get focused upon doom.
If you can learn how to handle yourself more and more, then most people get more alert, focused, and work the problem, Panic and being overly concerned wastes energy. It doesn't help.
Now...things could get bad. In fact I have a seperate topic on "How would we know if there was a pandemic?" I also have a 1000 posts on how to handle things if there was a disaster or the SHTF. See my sig.
That's different because of this topic.
If you know someone who is stressed, and 99% of you are stressed...a lot! Then if you're in a relationship, exchange massages when not sick with an infection. If you faithfully do that for 40 days, I bet your relationship will be 100% better. You'll become very connnected. Your sex life and romance will soar like an eagle. You'll have better orgasms. You will get better kisses. Someone will jump in the shower with you!
A little nightly massage and taking turns will lead to things like people staying healthier by destressing. Forgiveness for what used to be really annoying behavior. Less arguing which makes everyone have ulcers including your children who are listening. Small kindnesses. Unexpected presents. More home cooking and DESSERT!
Isn't that worth 20 minutes of your time?
If you destress, your immune system won't have to fight inflammation all the dang time. You won't get sick and then a month or more later still be fighting it. That's abnormal.
