Earworm – Real World

Last Saturday, Dad and I were out for our normal supplies run and we stopped at our favorite Mexican restaurant. They used to play Mexican music but for some reason, they now play pop music. Oh, well that’s ok. At least it’s not country music.

Anyway, this song comes on and I love the song, but it has been stuck in my head since Saturday! I wake up with it playing in my head. I go to bed with it playing in my head. The lyrics that resonate with me the most are, “I wish the real world would just stop hassling me.”

The shit going on the real world right now is causing me so much anxiety. I’m not freaking out about COVID-19 but I am concerned. I’m mostly concerned for my Dad, who’s 83 years old. He still wants to go out on Saturdays. We will go out again this Saturday, but I told him when this thing is more widespread across our state, (only 2 cases, so far) then we WILL be staying home. In addition to that, I’m having to jump through hoops to get my pain meds refilled. I know people who rely on narcotic pain meds to function and they have to jump through hoops BUT mine are not narcotics. I’m not sleeping well due to my pain level being extraordinarily high and I’m running out of my meds! Now I have to see a new FNP because the one I had been seeing left the clinic. Holy crap.

I know the meaning of this song is more than that one line, but that one line is what resonates with me in the here and now.

Thanks for following Being Aunt Debbie!

  1. I am so sorry to hear you are having a hard time getting your meds! That was one of my first concerns and luckily, I was able to get a supply just before this thing started to get real. We are going to Walmart tomorrow to visit all of the empty shelves…and get Bill some sweatpants. lol Tell your Dad that staying home for a while won’t kill him…unless you do…which you might if you are in the same house for weeks on end with no Mexican food on the weekend. I want you to know that I am officially a hoarder because of this virus. I just ordered 10 boxes of cat litter. I might die, I may have no food or disinfectant…but my cats are going to be able to use their litter box, damn it!

    • Better safe than sorry, my friend! I’m headed to Walmart tomorrow, after I see FNP and get my meds straightened out. I wish I could stock up on my meds but my insurance won’t pay except once a month. I will get more litter, canned cat food, coffee, and some non-perishables…just in case. Our freezers are always full. We have tp to last a little while. I’ll probably get some OTC pain meds and creams, too. If we have to self-quarantine then I won’t be able to get my meds next month. 😢 This virus is spreading like wildfire and I fear will get worse before it gets better. I’d rather be safe than sorry so we will stay home as much as possible. Take care of yourself, Bill, and the furkids! 💜

  2. Oh geez my friend, what a pain in the behind trying to get your meds must be. I hope that you can get that straightened out so that you can ease your pain. As for Dad, I get how you feel about him getting sick, I’m the same way with my parents. All of their doctors, and I do mean ALL of them have told them if they don’t have to go out, they need to stay home. Because of their age they are more susceptible to any virus. Tell Dad to hang in their, and you too my friend! Lots of love from me and Snarky Charlie!
