Daily Coping 16 Nov 2020

I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.

Today’s tip is to find out something new about someone you care about.

I asked someone recently how they were doing during this tough time. They told me that they hadn’t been able to visit a parent in a retirement facility and only were able to video call with Skype.

This surprised me, as the person was younger than I was, and I had assumed their parents would not be in that level of care. Shows what I get for assuming.

I felt bad, and know what this is like, though my mother is far enough away that I can’t visit her often. I was supposed to go last month, but illness made me cancel. However, this person has their parent just a few miles away.

Heartbreaking.
