I recently received a message from a friend I know online. We play video games online with each other, that's about it though. He reached out to me because he was worried sick, and needed some reassurance. His name is Siad.
He's showing all of the symptoms of COVID-19 and has been ordered to self quarantine. He has severe asthma and is worried that he might go down hill too quickly to get himself help and was terrified at the idea of something happening to him and leaving his dog alone with no one to feed it.
So Siad asked me if I could check up on him everyday, and if I couldn't get in contact with him for more than a day to call 911 and see if I could find someone who could take care of his dog. That last part was an odd request.
Then I realized something about Siad... I didn't actually know if he had anyone to check up on him. He's an old guy who never had kids. His wife had passed away years prior. Besides myself, I don't actually know if he had anyone else to talk to.
I don't think Siad is the only person out there with no one to check in on them and most of all, I don't think anyone should be in that situation.
