I found the above meme and all I will say I am somewhere between 2 and 4. Yes, this staying at home crap is driving me crazy. Sometimes I go to the grocery store just to see what they don’t have. Don’t get me wrong there has been times in the past I would of paid for actual time off. But now…where I can’t even go for a walk in the park, because it’s closed and all the places I normally go to relax are also closed. I walk my dog, watch something streaming, write or play video games. Literally that is it, I talk to friends…but literally you run out of things to say and I am alone most of the time. Seriously folks I am scared out of my mind, I really don’t want to get sick, on average I wash my hands for a full 20 seconds 10 times between when I wake up to when I have breakfast.
So despite what you might see online or on TV why aren’t you coping better? Frankly there is no simple solution, for example 1 friend sleeps most of the day while another has there apartment so clear you could actually preform an operation there. That might be a bit of a lie but I assume you get my point. People have so much nervous energy they just don’t know what to do, that is where I am. I do what I know I have to do, but then what? I try and find something else, but more often or not I usually wind up taking a nap.
They tell us the worse is going to happen within the next 10 days, and frankly everyone I am scared, and I know I am not the only one.
I see a lot of people who are short tempered, irritable, and according the cops there has been more assaults committed during this Stay At Home than there usually is. There has been at least 5 stabbings in my neighborhood in the last 2 weeks. Normally I am a calm furry, I have even found I have gotten irritable at times.
I really wish I could tell you that there is a quick and simple way to feeling better, but frankly there isn’t one.
