It’s been more than a month that I got no work. At this moment, we still have money to buy essentials but what’s gonna happen after? I have a 2-year-old daughter and my wife is not working as well. I am the breadwinner in my family and yet this happened.

My company has sent a communication that they might shut down completely if this lockdown continues until summer. Luckily we got a stimulus check and I really appreciate that but then a question in my mind is what’s next? I know I’m not the only person experiencing this and there could be someone experiencing worse than me.

The impact of this virus on our lives is way too much. You catch a cold and or cough, you would suspect that you have the virus. It’s basically what happened to me. I also had a severe headache that I’ve never had in my life. It lasted for a few days. When I felt something like the COVID symptoms, I immediately took care of myself as I don’t want my wife especially my 2-year-old to catch what I got. I never wanted to go to Elmhurst hospital to get tested as it’s the main hospital for COVID-19 patients here in our county. Luckily, it was just a common cough and cold for me, at least to my knowledge. I feel much better now.

I highly suggest everybody have face coverings and always wash your hands even if you’re just at home. You wouldn’t know or at least you would not notice how you can get the virus.
