The only change I've noticed is an increase in anxiety and I'm agitated, but my PRNs help.

I donít care about isolating, Iím an introvert anyway and would love nothing more than to stay in the house. However, my anxiety over the whole situation is getting worse every day. I have started having nightmares about family getting sick. I am terrified I will get sick and die because I have nothing set up for my son as to where he would go. Iím just anxious in general. I keep reading fire news stories about how the US is not prepared, we never were prepared, there are PPE shortages and supply chains being disrupted, just everything seems so hopeless. Iím trying not to go on fb anymore because it just upsets me too much.

Well I haven't been isolating because I work in healthcare, I've been practicing social distancing, still seeing family, and grocery shopping. My therapy has changed to facetime, and I can't have coffee with the seniors anymore. My mom can't come to my apt. But I can still go to her house. I can't meet my daughter on Wednesday at a restaurant, or have her over, so there's some change but I'm surviving. I hope thing ends soon. I feel like God has grounded me. And I never got grounded.

I do not handle isolation well at all, if it is over a long period of time. There is allot for me to do, like cleaning the house, and my hobbies and activities. The cell phone helps, but is not the same as just getting away and just doing something. I also really like to go somewhere and talk to different people face-to-face. So in absence of this, my anxiety level shoots up.
