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.

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?

Sorry you were fired that sucks.

Hope you feel better soon Ophiuchus.

And I just have a very unsympathetic area manager even though he knows my MH problems. Had a panic attack on the way to worm yesterday. Rang the shop I was supposed to be going too as I was running late, turns out they didn’t actually need me this week at all. They rang my area manager and my area manager rang me, had a go at me for causing problems and told me I needed to decide if I wanted to work or not.

To cut a
Long story short, I’m now on a weeks holiday and working in a different shop next week. BUT I have volunteered to furlough as they are asking for volunteers in the company now and area manager apologised for his bevauoir
Early in the day when he rang to tell me what’s happening.

Was a weird day. But get to spend the rest of this week doing my courses. I find our Friday/Saturday what I’m doing next week.

I've now had these symptoms for 7 weeks.
I keep being told "just give it another week, give it two weeks, give it some time" and I'm just beyond exhausted now.

And I’ve officially lost someone to COVID-19��.

She passed away 2 days ago. She was only 54.

I know 3 others with the disease at this time. One of them is not doing so well.
Please don’t let him be next! Why has this disease taken so much from me?!




Still Harder
Getting up, getting dressed, liviní with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

I am so scared I am going to catch the virus. I really don't want to go back to work or back to normal. I don't want to die. It is really freaking me out.



So where the hell's my hope,
And why can't I just try?
You know I've lost a lot,
But I won't let this die.
I know I've got a friend up in the atmosphere,
And another reason not to fear the sky;
No, not tonight.
