I've been stuck inside for nearly two weeks now and its really messing with my head.
I do hope with all my heart that people stay inside so it stops and we can return to normal.

my state is on lockdown until at least may. i have been working really hard to reframe my thoughts around wanting things returning to normal, and instead trying to accept that how they are now with having to stay home is normal. it is really hard and i am far from perfect at it. but i have been finding that useful to work on. idk if that would be helpful for anyone else.

i also have the feeling that even once some of the restrictions are removed, things might not go back to how they were. so i am just trying to stay focused on the present and what is normal for now.

i am getting concerned about being forced to wear a mask. if we have to wear a mask when we go out in public, i do not think i will be able to. i think having something on my face will make me have a meltdown. or i will panic because i will be afraid i will not be able to breathe. or both.



You can't always keep it separate.

Yes, I have the same feeling, Auror.
I think that things have changed on such a huge scale, that nothing will be as it was before. But then again, I'm not sure it could be, if that makes sense?

According to Trump wearing a face mask is voluntary. If you're worried about wearing one you could just follow his lead.

What if you tried wearing one at home before going outside in it? Just put it on for a few minutes or until you can't cope with it... and then keep trying. You might find you get used to it.

The same with the new normal. It is true that things might not be the same ever again but the more we live through it, the more it becomes normal. I don't imagine things are going to change so drastically that it will be a completely different world we live in.

We're all more adaptable than we think we are. And it sounds like you're already learning to adapt your thought processes to cope with the changes and that's so good. You should be proud of taking a proactive approach to this.

Iím struggling with it. Mainly because Iím a key worker. Iím bei sent to shops I donít usually work in and I donít think they should be sending me everywhere. They want to furlough some of us but I know if I volunteer itíll be seen as bad further down the line, plus Iím not in my base shop so I canít notify my manager of wanting too.

I want to refuse to work but know I canít, even though others have.

Some places are requiring face masks now I believe. Our case manager human wore one today. I do not want people to think I do not care. I dunno.

I got fired from one of my jobs last week.

Cat, why can't you refuse to work if others have?

My glands have swollen up under my arms and in my neck. I look like the Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters and it's causing a lot of pain :(

How is everyone fairing today?
I'm sorry about your job, Auror - was it one you enjoyed?
