Please.

Accept the following:

  1. There IS NO CURE FOR THIS NOW (or in the foreseeable future)
    So. Going to the doctor is meaningless. Stay at home, don’t risk passing it on to others. Meditate, relax, eat healthy, drink a lot of water.
  2. Everyone who has DIED FROM THIS VIRUS HAS BEEN VERY OLD and had other health issues as well, something that makes it possible to die from the common cold or from taking non-prescription, over the counter drugs. If you are in this category, isolation is probably acceptable, but is that really how you want to spend the precious time you have left?
    Go be with your family. Say everything you wanted to but didn’t, just in case.
  3. MATHEMATICALLY, TRYING TO AVOID IT, IS DESTINED TO FAIL
    So, face the facts. If we can’t come up with an antidote within approximately 45–60 days, chances are that 99%+ all over the globe, WILL GET THIS VIRUS. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.
  4. GENERALLY HEALTHY PEOPLE WILL NOT GET VERY SICK
    Many healthy people have told about how they experienced the “deadly virus”: It felt like a common cold, but symptoms where a bit stronger and lasted for about a week.
  5. PANIC IS THE LEAST EFFECTIVE TREATMENT
    Don’t be a fool. Stop watching the news, stay at home if you’re sick, don’t go out emptying the shelves for food. That’s pure egocentric attitude and won’t help you or anyone else, even if your fears where realized. Maybe a couple of weeks, but, hey. think.
  6. ACCEPT REALITY FOR WHAT IT IS
    Right now, it sucks. How long will it take before getting back to normal?
    Noboby knows. 2 weeks? 20 years? Never?
    IF THIS IS NOW, THIS IS REAL.
  7. DON’T PANICK, NOTHING IS UNDER CONTROL
    We could get hit by a large astroid or something almost without warning that could end all life instantly.
    Instead of fear for the future, prioritize maximizing happiness and joy in the moment. We never know when the last moment comes.
    FEAR IS A PRISON! Don’t go to prison as a volunteer.
  8. THINKING ABOUT ILLNESS ALL THE TIME, WILL MAKE YOU SICK
    Avoid bathing in toxic oceans of news, updates and other “information” about this. NOBODY KNOWS. THOSE WHO CLAIM TO KNOW ARE LIARS. Hope for the best. Be with those you care about. Relax.
