If you have already been struggling with your mental health before things started going crazy then chances are you are used to living in isolation. Most people will probably not hesitate to tell you so along with multiple memes of the same story. But there is something different about this. When it was optional it was ok you had something to work towards. Like ok tomorrow I will feel well enough to go the park, or out to dinner, or the movies. None of those are options anymore. For most people particularly those with anxiety the cap on it all was the state of the rest of the world. While the world was functioning ok freak outs were limited to things like “OMG did that wave look weird?” “Did I remember to lock the door?” Without being able to calm yourself and let yourself know the worries while very real to you were able to be controlled. Now that the entire world is in a perpetual state of worry you are likely finding that your own has peaked above that. Besides now that everyone is anxious they don’t understand how crippling your condition can be. Sound like you or someone you know? Here are some tips to help yourself through these times.
