A new Era

Yes, we were all anxious and excited to start a new decade. A decade that some of us prayed for. Personally, I prayed for strength in my faith, and hope for my life. It is a fact that we are all experiencing world crisis. A crisis we never imagined to be part of. Who do I trust? Where do I look for answers about this virus? Of course, we all know there have been other diseases that have been deadlier. But it is not a competition. It is another disease added to our agenda. A disease that can perhaps be overpass, or it can be deadly if your immune system is weak. I look around me and there are people in fear of contagion. Yes, it can be scary, I can think about it every day, and get anxious. I am not quarantining, or working from home, I have to physically show up to work, and help those who cannot help themselves. I am part of the behavior services team, and just like patients need doctors and nurses to help with diseases, they need help with their mental health. It will only worsen due to change in their environment. We are here to not only help patients, but also help staff overcome this crisis. It is important to maintain calm, to breath, and to be thankful we are able to serve others in an era of a worldwide crisis.
