I found out yesterday that my best friend was possibly exposed to the virus on Mother's Day by her Son who is a Police Officer. He was sent home from work with the symptoms of the virus and I'm scared for my best friend who gave her son a hug before he left after his visit on Mother's Day.
I have this nervousness in the pit of my stomach that I haven't been able to shake since. I am crying inside and hating this situation we all are in more and more. Maybe even getting angry a little.
I just can't get going with any projects, including cooking for myself, self-care, let alone any good distracting projects to while away the hours and days. Luckily, I am no longer working, so that's a lot of stress off my back.
Has anyone had ANY success getting out of their own heads so to speak and getting on with a project or just doing everyday chores or past times? Especially, without medication!
My motivation is about down to zero again since the news from my friend and I'm worried I'm going to slip into depression if I can't get myself going again.
I did manage to start a private journal here on DS the other day. I intended to write in my journal yesterday, but I forgot until I had already signed off.
I know everyone says that we are all in this together and that I'll be fine. But, somehow I have not been able to turn that into feelings that will make me feel better or motivate me to get up and get going around the house.
Thank goodness I have a phone appointment next week with my Therapist. The last time we spoke she was concerned I was showing signs of depression and I'd tend to agree with her now. It's all just so overwhelming, depressing, and downright sad!
I'm probably in the best situation I could be in to go through this unprecedented time, but I still can't seem to get out of my own head and get moving!
I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read my concerns, Bless You!
We are still in lockdown even though parts of our state is beginning to open.The weather is good today. What else is positive?
Hi everyone. I'm new to the group. I was just wondering is there anyone out there who sometimes feels like they can't get a full breath of air? It turns out to be a scary feeling which ends up triggering my anxiety and seems to get worst. I wouldn't wish this feeling upon anyone, but if anyone's out there with similar issues I would love to talk about it with eachother. And if anyone has any tips...
