Lately the covid isolation is getting to me. Even people wearing masks. I'm dreaming about people with masks on, it's really worked into my subconscious. I've been fully vaxxed, so I feel less afraid of catching covid. But we still wear masks, and so many small businesses have been lost due to the lockdown. The coffeehouse I liked a lot is gone. Cute little boutiques downtown are gone. It's depressing, frankly speaking. I yearn for IRL sessions with my therapist and pdoc. It's been over 1 year of telehealth and I'm sooo weary of it. Yeah...the isolation is wearing on me.

I need to spend more time outside. The CDC says it's ok to not wear masks outside now.

From the news conferences and what I've read on gov't websites, we're in this pandemic for yet another entire year before the world govts declare the pandemic over. Now how these world gov'ts continue to provide everyone with pandemic stimulus and how to operate society is a whole other question.

I plan to continue to do what I normally do. Pre-pandemic I had no social life so the pandemic isolation hasn't changed my life at all. Everything's as it's always been for me.

I wrote before I didn't think things had changed for me - actually I think I've minimised that a bit. I haven't been able to volunteer in either of my roles for over a year - I realise I've lost my sense of purpose and self worth. This has only really struck me this week.

Luckily, I've been able to continue volunteering by teaching my English classes over Zoom.

My volunteering has really taken a hit as well. I've been with one place for many years but I'm thinking about quitting because the work has been such a burden with all the restrictions and all the 'fun' parts are gone, like the picnics or even just being able to work with someone else. Trying to hang in there.


I wonder how many of the annual events we will lose after this, the small festivals celebrating strawberries or annual battle of the band type things.

Hello
Please excuse me for any mistake with the language, i'm not a native speaker
I've been in severe isolation for five years now
I lost control in a crucial moment of my life and the main problem was that I was feeding myself through a very negative community (not this one of course) found in the internet back then-trolls where there too
I was not so used to internet and it caused me to enter a state of bad regression, it was horrible and I can't believe what i did... i'm so angry with myself and the past

What to expect from isolation
Well hopefully it may end
I guess the worse are the consequences for the loved ones
It is a delicate topic, I onestly find it hard to talk about it; i just hate that it happened

Hug

I've experienced weight gain, and lack of enthusiasm for going out anywhere, even for a walk.

Reluctance to bound with ppl socially. Fear to speak my mind. Dread of. Millennials and their motives.
