Sadly as time goes on more and more people will need to self-isolate and/or quarantine in the coming weeks/months and thing it’s probably good to talk about what you’re doing/sharing ideas/or venting your frustration or just sharing your experience as a whole (good, indifferent, bad)
I know I feel I have an overwhelming desire to update people on how I’m coping/struggling at the moment. I feel like crap, not so much in the ill sense (thought its not helping obviously) but I feel like I’m doomed to spend the majority of the 14 days doing nothing. Confined to 2 rooms with limited facilities for the sake of my housemates I am slowly but surely realising this isn’t going to be ample oppurtunity to ‘unwind’ and spend much needed ‘me time’ to reflect on life. Instead I feel imprisoned, lack the motivation to leave bed (whats the point, all I can do is walk to my desk - is often a thought I have) and every little thing wrong or lacking in my room is screaming at me from the top of the lungs. Currently very restless.
I usually enjoy spending time indoors, alone, playing video games and listening to music but at the moment haven’t the desire to do either. I dont want to watch anything either, just not in the mood, I want to socialise and I fear this is going to get worse as I get further and further away from my last point of contact with a human.
I played Overwatch last night with friends online, the voice chat helped a lot, but it’s not enough. Against my better judgement, on account of being ill with what is likely Covid-19, I decided to drink alcohol to help kill the feeling of the mundane… it helped at the time but predictably isn’t treating me so kindly today.
Symptoms are waning though the cough remains persistent and deep breaths are harder than they were 2 days ago (despite feeling less ill) hopefully once the bug starts to pass and I have more energy, optimism and less of that ‘crap’ feeling you get from being unwell I’ll be able to engage in more of my interests at home but at the moments I’m just an indecisive mess with very few options open to me.
