I am starting this area for anyone that wants to talk, discuss or need support for the corona virus.
There have been talk of people wanting to discuss and the need to get things off their chest, whilst others would prefer not to hear another word about it. Therefore I have decided to put this area up just for that purpose, so if you have anything that you would like to say, please do so here and we can all pull together and help as best we can.
I will kick things off in saying that my mental health has taken a serious dive since Monday this week. Almost overnight my mood went south. My issue for those that do not know, is that my anxiety and stress if triggered by lack of control. As these circumstances are the embodiment of control being taken out of our hands, I am left with so many questions that just spin around in my head with no answers, which only sends me into a downward spiral.
As benzos and dramamine and my good old "special K" is of no help whatsoever, the only thing I have to help is frequent meditation; to do as best I can to reduce the impact of these seemingly neverending thoughts.
It is a very painful, anxious and stressful time for us all. I would like to offer whatever support I can to you all, as I can in my current vulnerable state.
