Everytime I read a tweet or article or facebook post...they keep saying...we are 10 days behind Italy...it will hit us in 10 days. I read that even weeks ago!
So, when exactly are we going to actually see this hitting us? Beds not being available? How do we know we haven't flattened the curve already, with staying in everywhere?
Dr. Fauci says today - we will stay in a few more weeks...

I see drs and nurses saying "we are gearing up, we are worried, we need PPE"
but I see this every day...its like...is it really coming? I am struggling with this. I do understand that yes, some folks have this already, and that is scary to me.
I am just struggling with the message right now as I stand on my porch and watch a zilliion cars drive by. It's very unreal to me at the moment, but no worries, I don't plan on going anywhere.

Patience, with all that people are doing by SIP and Social Distancing may help to make the numbers of who gets this lower.  Just look at Europe today and how many have it and are dying.  It is coming our government is trying to ease the curve by the above.  Just relax take this time to get things done, or to do nothing , but don't worry about other people do what is best for you.
