It's similar here, I rely on toilet paper and antibacterial soap for a medical issue I have, and though I lucked out and had a decent amount (I hope??) of the former already, toilet paper simply is nowhere to be found anywhere around here at the moment. Can't get it on Amazon, either, unless I want to shell out a stupid amount of money for a few measly sheets. (We aren't out of it yet, but if this lasts nearly as long as they say it will...
As for food?--that situation is looking dire, too. We're not in trouble yet, by a long shot, but there seems to be less each time, and when I needed to stock up on soup (supposed to have my teeth pulled soon, and I won't get dentures for months, IF all goes well...it's looking less likely every day, I may be stuck with crumbling teeth for months more -_- ), there was barely any to be had. Zero ramen, and a few cans of cream of mushroom. Get this, nobody was touching the really dented cans...these people sure were kind of picky for being so "needy." I actually bought a couple of cans of refried beans because I couldn't think of anything else soft to eat, even though I'm not sure how my insides will handle those... :/
Stores are supposedly "working with their distributors" or whatever to get things in stock faster but I sure am not seeing it whenever we venture out (which we shouldn't even be doing, since my parents are in the target group of COVID-19 victims)...changing the time of day at which we go out makes zero difference, with stores changing their hours as well, and everyone else just hanging out there until supplies show up (which we can't do)...authorities keep saying to stock up for at least two weeks and stay at home as much as possible, but when every time you go to the store they don't have what you need to stock up on because others were greedy and snatched everything up already...how long can you be stuck inside?
Okay, I get it. Everyone needs to stock up. But this is just a small city, 5000 people. (Which makes at-home delivery out of the question since we don't have such services around here. And all the online resources are sold out of what we need, too. I bought soap on Amazon at the beginning of March, when most of it was low but this one item was listed as "in stock"--the shipping date keeps getting delayed. I MIGHT get it by April. Guess it wasn't in stock after all.) Does EVERYBODY need to stock up EVERY week?? What do the rest of us who can't get there in time do? And hey, you people overly stocking up on soap and hand sanitizer and such now, WTF were you doing before the pandemic? Did you simply not use soap and sanitizer or something? You do know germs existed before now, right? (I've been doing the wash-your-hands-for-20-seconds routine for YEARS now!--long before COVID-19 was a thing.)
And ugh God, I hope this doesn't affect the medical supplies I order by phone... -_-
I really, really hope this dies down in a week or two because who even knows where we'll find what we need to keep going once we run out. Authorities are starting to say at least two months...or up until August...that's a long time to be in uncertainty. The one upside, I'm probably going to lose some weight.
