Mario Colacino Victim & Domestic Violence Professor Muni April 13th 2019 Journal Entry The world as we all know it has drastically changed. The COVID 19 epidemic that is ravaging through not just our nation but the world feels all too unreal. My personal experience with the outbreak has been one that has forever changed the way I look at life. The outbreak of coronavirus has been stressful for people. It’s caused fear and anxiety to fill the hearts of people around the world. The disease can be extremely overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Stress during an infectious disease outbreak can include; fear and worry about your health and the health of your loved ones; changes in sleep or eating patterns; difficulty sleeping or concentrating; worsening of chronic health problems; worsening of mental health conditions; increased use of alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs. Not to mention the economic burden that COVID has put on the entire world. In this paper, I will go into depth on how I became the victim of COVID 19. As many Americans are aware COVID 19 seemed to be taken as a joke for the most part. It did not become a reality until it started to affect individual Americans' lives. In my situation the first thing to close for me was college. At first, I believed the idea of doing classes at home would make my life much easier. I wouldn’t have to drive nor worry about the fees for traveling to school. This was, in fact, my last semester and I believed it would just be a long spring break
and we would be back to class in a few weeks. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case as we all know today we won’t be able to return to college and see our friends, professors, and receive the proper education we paid for. I truly feel upset at heart knowing I went to school for four years and won't be able to go to my graduation due to the fact I and my peers can catch COVID 19.
