In today’s Self Care Sundays series I want to address mental health for everyone. During this time across the world, mental health care should be addressed not just for those already with behavioral and mental health issues, but our first responders, healthcare professionals, grocery store workers, truck drivers and so many more.
Mental health is just as important as physical health. My biggest concern is for my fellow colleagues and what’s going to happen to their mental health when our hospitals are overrun with patients.
I found a great article by the CDC on stress and coping during this pandemic outbreak. As healthcare workers, we are constantly tending to the needs of others; while we tend to forget our own mental and physical health needs.
If you, or someone you care about, are feeling overwhelmed with emotions like sadness, depression, or anxiety, or feel like you want to harm yourself or others call
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) Disaster Distress Helpline: 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746. (TTY 1-800-846-8517)
For healthcare workers, it’s quite natural to feel stress. Many relieve their stress with the form of dark humor. What most people may see as incentive, mean or despicable others find relief with humor.
Take care of your basic needs. Food, shelter, clothing and family. It’s important to remember that if you go down with illness it will affect more than just the people you work with.
Coping With Stress
It’s normal to feel sad, angry, confused or even scared during a crisis.
I wish anyone reading this health, safety and wellness. Please try not to panic over this war we have raging in the world. If we all do our part and work together we will get through this together.
Our Senior Citizens have lived through the worst of times. The #coronaviruis is not the worst thing they’ve lived through. We have a duty as a society to care for, appreciate and listen to their lives stories.
Did you get caught up in the great toilet paper hoarding? How much do you really need for your family for one month?
Listen, I’m not trying to make light of this new obstacle in our daily lives at this time. The point I’m trying to get across is to stop and think about how we as individuals and what we affect all of us!
Show #kindness, #understanding, #patients and most of all
As you read the next part please know that this is not a product sales pitch in anyway, shape or form!
After reading this article my jaw dropped open. Communists want to control those around them. I have often asked others if this “outbreak” is all about just that?

“Frankly Folks, this report I obtained today Scares “THE LIVING HELL” out of me and I think it will you too…
NEW QUESTIONS ABOUT THE ORIGIN … of the nCorona Virus COVID-19
US Center for Disease Control (CDC) says there are 100,000 new cases yesterday… not 15,000 as China reports.
BEIJING ADMITS: Changes counting methods…so the 15,152 NEW VIRUS CASES OVERNIGHT is probably more like 100,000 new cases…in just one day.
Wuhan Communist Party chiefs removed… because they hid the outbreak and very likely are responsible for its release….Read on and see…
The reported militarization of Wuhan’s P4 Lab by the Chinese Army has raised new questions about the origin of the COVID-19 virus and the apparent cover-up that has occurred since it was first made public.
Following the removal of the most senior health officials in Wuhan yesterday, Chinese State Media has just reported that Chen Wei, China’s chief biochemical weapon defense expert, is now to be stationed in Wuhan to lead the efforts to overcome the deadly, pneumonia-like pathogen.
Beijing has had for known “accidental leaks” of the SAR S virus in recent years, so there’s absolutely no reason to assume that the strain of Coronavirus from the BSL-4 Virology Lab in Wuhan didn’t accidentally leak out as well.
Given that this outbreak was said to begin in late December (when most bat species in the region are hibernating) and the Chinese bats habitat covers an enormous swath of the region containing 6 scores of cities and hundreds of millions of people to begin with, “the fact that this Wuhan strain of Coronavirus emerged in close proximity to the only BSL – 4 Virology lab in China”.
The BSL – 4 Virology Lab was staffed with at least 2 Chinese scientists, Zhengli Shi & Xing-Yi GE, both Virologists who had previously worked at an American lab, “which has already bioengineered an incredible virulent strain of bat Coronavirus”. The accidental release of a bioengineered virus meant for defensive (military or civil) immunotherapy research from Wuhan Virology Lab cannot be automatically discounted….especially when the Wuhan strains “unnatural” genomic structures are considered.
Zhengli Shi notably, co-authored a controversial paper in 2015, which describes the creation of a new virus by combining Coronavirus found in the Chinese horseshoe bats with another virus that causes human-like severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), in which clusters of circulating bat Coronavirus close are an extremely dangerous threat for human emergence! This research sparked a huge debate at the time over whether engineering lab variance of viruses with possible pandemic potential is worth the risks!
Other Virologists question whether the information gleaned from the experiment justifies the potential risk!!! Although the extent of any risk is difficult to assess, Simon Wain-Hobson, a Virologist at the Pasteur Institute in Paris, points out that the researchers have created a novel virus that “grows remarkably well” in human cells.
“Scientific review panels of Virologists may deem similar studies building chimeric viruses based on circulating strains too risky to pursue,” they write; adding that discussion is needed as to “whether these types of chimeric (artificially unnatural) virus studies warrant further warning that much of the chain of events is just to unstable for investigation. versus the inherent dangerous risks involved”.
Previously, scientists had believed, on the basis of molecular modeling and other studies, that it should not be able to infect human cells. The latest work shows that “the virus has already overcome critical barriers”, such as being able to latch onto human receptors and efficiently infect human airway lung cells, he says. I don’t think you can ignore that.
WHICH BRINGS US TO PERHAPS THE MOST NOTABLE FINDING.
A genetic analysis of the spike-protein genes – in the exact region that was bio-engineered by the UNC lab in 2015, where Zhengli Shi and Xing-Yi Ge previously isolated a batty coronavirus that targets the ACE2 receptor just like this 2019-nCoV strain of the coronavirus does – “indicates an artificial and unnatural origins of the Wuhan Corona Virus Strain’s spike-protein genes when they are compared to the genomes of natural wild relatives.
Instead of appearing similar and homologous to its wild relatives, an important section of the Wuhan Strain’s spike-protein region shares the most “genetic similarity with a bio-engineered commercially” available gene sequence that’s designed to help with immunotherapy research. It is remotely mathematically possible for this to happen in nature – but only in a ten-thousand bats chained to ten-thousand Petri dishes and given until a infinity of time.
And so, as the report goes on, a scientist who’s been prolifically involved with studying the molecular interaction of Coronaviruses and humanity, spending decades and millions of dollars, and having even helped build a hyper-virulent coronavirus from scratch at UNC – just so happens to be working at the only BSL-4 virology lab in China, that also just so happens to be at the epicenter of an outbreak involved a Coronavirus that’s escaping zoological classification and whose novel spike-protein region shares more in common with a “commercial genetic vector” than any of its wild relatives!!!
However, most recently, as an increasing number of global experts questioned China’s initial official story that this came from the food market in Wuhan, Zhengli Shi hurriedly wrote a new report, claiming instead of the initial findings that the novel virus came from a bat in Wuhan i.e. the Chinese chrysanthemum bat. She said that this was a new discovery that she had worked hard for several years, and coincidentally wrote a paper after the outbreak and published it in the famous international academic journal Nature.
THIS IS WHY THE CHINESE HID THE OUTBREAK FOR 4 MONTHS:
The reason why the Chines Communist Party (CCP) held on releasing info about the nCoronavirus Outbreak …. is that they were waiting for Dr. Shi Zhengli’s paper to be published at Nature so that they could claim bat is the origin. #COVID2019 (BUT it was in fact an artificially unnatural bioengineered genome) (a BIG LIE)
CORONAVIRUS: Professor Neil Ferguson states on the COVID-19 Outbreak “We’re at the early stages of a global pandemic” (BBC News) #covid19 #coronavirus #coronavirus outbreak
Let’s hope not and he is wrong…. But after reading this report I question its (Corona Virus) origins and if it is natural or a unnatural synthesized fraction of the bioengineered virus. It definitely is a gigantic global Pandemic Health Emergency threat with the potentially dangerous possibilities it has for the entire human race”
