The nation is opening up, even as epidemiologists warn of deadly consequences. It seems like a good day to just sit back and take stock.
We have a guest this afternoon (Monday, May 18). Jennifer Klesman is a therapist at Cityscape Counseling in Chicago. She is a licensed clinical social worker who treats adults and adolescents struggling with issues that include anxiety, depression, trauma, gender identity, relationships, and general life stress. We’ll be talking about the challenges of living in the time of COVID.
The world is not always as we imagine it is. Albert Einstein mixed together what for centuries had seemed the immutable concepts of space and time, and in the process reshaped our understanding of reality. And today, COVID has destroyed what had seemed immutable notions of how our society functions. It’s just that for the most part, people have yet to appreciate just how fundamental the change is.
Sure, “recovered” beats “dead,” but both are a far cry from “never got sick in the first place.” It’s like what happened 65 million years ago. Life “recovered” from the KT impact that killed the dinosaurs, but that doesn’t mean it had an easy time of it.
