Hi Melvin,

I've been busy digging a moat around my house, barricading all entrances, designing and building a home made water cannon and a flame thrower.

Armoring my vehicles, the old A Team series provides many DIY lessons for this.

Teaching the wife and kids killer martial arts moves.

Watching Charlton Heston in the Omega Man, Will Smith in I am Legend, Contagion and World War Z on repeat.

Digging up the lawn and cultivating the garden with various seeds.

Apart from that, just chilling.

Joking aside, hope you guys all stay safe!!

Catching up on some much needed sleep. Going out for runs since the gyms are all closed. Studying as usual and watching TV. Hanging out with my dog.

I fortunately timed my  HT perfectly (by pure dumb luck I had it on March 9).  I have a shaved head and look pretty weird right now but since I'm working at home, its the perfect time to be isolated.  Miss being out in society with friends though.  This is tough for extroverts.  But I know how fortunate and privileged I am as the suffering that is rippling through the world will be (and is right now) tragic and unbearable.

Talk about perfect timing. Where’d you go?

My company closed for at least two weeks and I'm getting paid for the time off. I been getting things done around the house that I been wanting to do for a long time. Did some yard work, put up a shelf in my laundry room, and cleaning out all my closets and drawers throwing out a lot of junk and trash.

Konior.  First FUE after two previous FUTs.  FUE was much much easier recovery (no pain and no meds whatsoever needed after surgery).  That's the good.  The bad is the need for having my head to be shaved.  When Dr. Konior did my first two FUT surgeries, the recovery and pain was longer and I had metal staples in my head for awhile.  However, they were all covered up with existing hair and after a week, no one could ever tell I ever had anything done.  Not really the case now.  But the timing is good for sure and I'm definitely not complaining.

Awesome man, Konior is one of the very best. Do you have a thread?

Don’t forget watching Soylent Green and reading some good bedtime stories to the kids (if you have any) such as Brave New World & 1984! 🤣

Day 6 of quarantine, and I’ve watched the entire season of 90 day fiancée. You can always count on TLC for having mind-numbing content lol

I'm quite looking forward to it in the short term, but can imagine going stir crazy after a couple of weeks. Plenty of unwatched Netflix stuff, a bit of DIY I've no excuse to put off now, and hopefully force myself into a bit of exercise now and then.

I usually go to the gym, so staying active is proving to be tough.

Do a home workout. Pushups with varying arm spacing (arms in close to your body and then a set with arms far apart), sit ups, running in place with high leg lifts, jumping squats, etc. It's good to do something different for a while than you usually do at the gym anyway. It's something your body isn't used to and you use muscles a bit differently.

Yea I’m trying, it’s just not as fun. But I really have too, it seems that the only thing keeping people entertained is booze lol. My local liquor store always have customers.

I've created my own little home gym using some dumbbells and am having to really be disciplined to make myself use them. Going to the gym was so much easier, so this is an opportunity to create new habits. I'm also using the time to do a lot of things I used to put off because of "lack of time" - and given that I now have a surplus of it, I don't have anymore excuses! Making the most out of it and choosing to let this forward me. :)

I wonder whether HT surgeons will offer post-virus specials to try to make up for lost surgeries during crisis? They could build some awesome goodwill.

I think they are going to be too backed up due to a lot of postponements that they will need to fit in, but who knows really.
