Guess it all had to go somewhere...
I've spent most of the virus time just sort of swallowing the stress and accepting I can't do anything about what's going on and getting on with things. The thing about stress though, is you can ignore it, but it's still there. In my case, I have tourettes syndrome and OCD, so typically it works it's way out that way.
Through the years I've mentally coached myself to push all the expressions of those conditions out to my extremities where I can generally hide them from the world and not let them interfere with my life much. But now coming into my fourth week at home working for fractions of what I was making WHILE homeschooling three children it has caught up with me.
My god my joints hurt. My ankles are stiff from nervous tics and endless flexing. My thumbs feel like they'd like to tear off and take a vacation somewhere.
Trying to just relax today and consciously avoid moving those parts of my body much, but I'm not sure how long it will take to settle them down.
Also, really not going to miss having to disinfect groceries and mail before bringing them into the house.
