DS was born with a rare combination of birth defects and has been high risk his whole life, and he caught everything even before his immune system became compromised. So there ARE moments when my breath catches, because itís a real risk. But, I just canít live afraid of it. We wash our hands. We didnít wait for a health crisis to have hand soap and hand sanitizer on hand, which is good since Costco is sold out here, too! When I buy toilet paper next, I might buy a little extra, and Iíll try not to completely run out, but I refuse to hoard it and contribute to a bigger problem. If that means I end up stuck with Kleenex and paper towel in a quarantine, itís the price I pay for living the way that is best for our family. Hopefully it wonít ruin our plumbing! If the situation gets more ďrusticĒ than that, well, I canít waste my time stressing about it, and my guess is by that point, toilet paper will be the least of our worries. Weíll just have to deal with it.
Iíll start looking at better ways to plan for future emergencies, I just think rushing out and buying a bunch of stuff right now is going to make it worse for everyone. What I really need to come up with is a good system of hoarding chocolate and candy in case of a quarantine! I would need some way of preventing myself from enjoying the whole stash before an emergency event...
