Spending some more time here at the Farm Colonies. I was just visiting Tina in the infirmary. She had a little bit of a breakdown. #zombies

It started right after Sue told her she would be able to keep her toes, but that there would be some permanent effects from her frostbite.

06:27 AM #
Tina seemed distracted as Sue told her that her toes would likely be forever more sensitive to cold. Then she started crying. #zompocalypse

It turns out the whole ordeal with her frostbitten toes masked a greater concern over her exposure to The Anomaly when she was in hiding.

She knew she was close to The Anomaly but couldn't get away. Now she's one of us, "The Doomed," destined to re-animate after death. #zombies

Shawn has been comforting Tina. He told her we don't know how long it takes to "catch" the latent form of the zombie plague from The Anomaly

09:56 AM #
We don't fully understand how it works. We just know that many people who've spent time near The Anomaly can become zombies without a bite.

The latent form of the zombie plague doesn't kill you like a zombie bite does; it just causes you to rise when you die, regardless of cause.

Most of us around here have come to terms with being "The Doomed." I guess living in the zompocalypse will give you a fatalistic streak.

02:30 PM #
Tina is out of her funk. Once she got it all out of her system, she and Shawn promised to do what's necessary should either of them die.

I think something is happening between those two. Near-death struggles form close bonds--and sometimes more. #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse
