I agree completely, Traveltext. I've been here before, as have many of our members. It's hard to be patient, to wait this out, but I've got some experience doing so.

The one thing I would argue about living through this time, compared to treatment, is that I knew when my treatment would end--the month, nearly right down to the day. We kind of don't really know that yet about Covid.

I'm currently back in the city in the midst of things and the parallels between the virus and breast cancer have been uncanny for me. Though I was a lot more afraid for myself with the breast cancer and I'm a lot more afraid for others with the virus.
