I’m very impressionable. Like in, really really impressionable. The other day Klara and I picked a plant in the woods that I decided was poison ivy. I immediately developed an itchy painful rash. Then I googled poison ivy and discovered that the plant we’d found was completely different. The rash instantly disappeared.
I thought I was unusually suggestible, especially in what concerns health. But now that I see how people are freaking out about the coronavirus I’m realizing that I’m actually a lot less so than most.
