12/16 both mentally and physically. I'm working out at home and doing things to give myself a more positive attitude. permalink embed save report reply [–] duhuhuhuh [score hidden] 28 minutes ago Pretty good actually. I somewhat miss being around my friends (I’m in school) but I’m surprised at how much I like being alone and how comfortable I feel knowing I won’t have to interact often with others throughout the day permalink embed save report reply [–] brokenpotat [score hidden] 28 minutes ago I'm gonna shut down the youtube and reddit from tomorrow and take my mind out of this covid 19 shit. permalink embed save report reply [–] scorpioinwonderland [score hidden] 27 minutes ago It isn't good. I have bad depression and social anxiety. I get panic attacks where I can only lay down and breathe for a few moments before getting up. I have borderline and think I need more help. My psychiatrist got on quarantine just as I had my new appointment. I'm losing my training to be a nurse because of my absence. permalink embed save report reply [–] poptarts4me [score hidden] 25 minutes ago Honestly, I crave the sweet release of death permalink embed save report reply [–] West_Potential [score hidden] 25 minutes ago I'm normally not an anxious person or one to get down. I've been blessed to have a state of mind that keeps me from getting too far down (and I can't emphasize how lucky I think I am because my brother isn't as fortunate). With that said lately it kind of sucks. I have a contract position which ends in June so now I"m applying for full time roles which seems to be the worst possible timings. The positions where I do go far in ("onsites" which are now completely virtual), I've gotten oh-so-close but it just so happens right when I apply for the job, I'm going up against someone with way more experience. Seriously, the last two interviews were for positions that were open for over a year because they couldn't find anyone, and both times they told me how great of a candidate I was and how the only thing holding me back was the person I came up against happened to apply at the same time as me. It's just frustrating. Anyway, I'm just ranting right now as a way of therapy or something. I know something should eventually hit but I've never felt this sort of frustration or anxiety before and I think it may have to do with my contract position just not giving me work. I 100% realize I'm insanley lucky. I still have a job. I still get a paycheck. Hell, I'm sure something will hit and this will all be behind me. With that said, this is the first time in my life I've felt like this and I credit it to the uncertainty of the future, the lack of a purpose right now (literally sitting at home with no work to do and just applying aimlessly), and significant reduction of human contact. I can easily see how isolation can make people insane now.
