stop watching tv and read a book or watch the thousands of movies and tv shows available on streaming services. Discipline yourself.


This!

But skip:

- Contageon

- The Stand

- The Road

- The Andromeda Strain

- Rainbow Six

- The Plague

- Anything Star Wars

 


Also anything with Amy Schumer. No one needs to look at that shit.

Death rate for under 50 is about 1%

Death rate for over 80 is about 20%

Thats the reason boomers have shut the world down. 

 

This is if you get the virus one time. 

 

The numbers will rise when people start getting it multiple times.

800 people died in one night alone in Italy.

Those are scary numbers.

I'm on novel medication on a drug trial at the moment for long-term illness, so I can't really afford to catch it as I'm not sure I can retake the meds again. So I'm pretty worried.

Quite the opposite here, the girl does it for me.

Its destroying my friends businesses and will bankrupt people.

I understand theres good intentions behind this reaction, but I dont think this is the type of virus that warrants an economic collapse.

The media is acting like theres a legit plague where people of all ages randomly bleed out from their eyes/ears and drop dead in public.

It's easy to let anxiety take over when you have all these competing worries - your health, your family, your finances, etc. And there's a whole media industry that feeds off the click-bait that stoke our fears.

But think of this: The U.S. of A. has a damn good track record for emerging victorious over catastrophes. We destroyed fascism in Europe, we fought communist expansionism to a standstill, and brought down the Soviet Union. We survived 9-11 and the anthrax attacks that the media told us would wipe us all out. We've gpt our industrial and military might and our brightest minds working on ways to defeat the virus. We've got good strong leadership. And the brightest minds around the globe. Our computing power is off the charts amazing. Our ability to manipulate Big Data gives us an ability to analyze and respond to hot zones. We have the most powerful, weaponized geek brain trust that will come up with off the wall, out of the box solutions. Just today, a crowdsourced geek project developed a way to make new ventilators with 3D printers:

Open-source project spins up 3D-printed ventilator validation prototype in just one week

It's going to be uncomfortable for a while and yes, too many people will die, like in any war. But we're going to come out of this okay.

I would recommend not checking the Internet too often. Work on the things you can and don't obsess over things you can't. Help others out, even strangers, any way you can - this is a huge element in your own psychological health. Stay healthy, exercise when you can (walking every day with your S.O. is recommended), try to get more sleep, eat healthy. You're gonna be okay.

Positive attitudes is what we need, especially in times like this.

I got sick on the 12th of March and swabbed for strep and flu. Tests came back negative for both and due to a fever I developed combined with physical foreign national contact through work I was swabbed for Covid and quarantined on the 16th. Still solo in my basement watching movies, etc. Worst part is hearing my 2 daughters and wife play upstairs and not being able to be there with them. Days 3 through 5 were tough mentally, depression and boredom had set in. Just keep thinking that while I wait on my yet to be received Covid resilts that it's for my family's sake and is best for all of us. Thankfully I have the ability to work from home which kills a lot of time. We also live pretty rural so I can get out in the yard without being close to anyone. Been a boring couple weeks but beats being in jail. Fresh air and having some semblance of a daily routine have helped big time. Hope no one else has to go through this but if anyone does, that too shall pass.

Diazepam

Xanax

Job done, buy them online if you have too and yes there are legit places out there that sell them. PM if you want, im not a reseller or any of that shit but I suffer from anxiety and the GPs over here (UK) refuse to give out any sort of Benzo unless you pry it out of their hands, so I self medicate and it helps.

#1 thing you can do is limit your exposure to the virus AND the virus coverage. Just update your knowledge ONCE a day.

I'm not worried for myself, but I am worried for parents and remaining grandparents.

Only thing for me is I'm worried about whether or not my flight home in a week is going to end up cancelled, but compared to everyone else's problems mine is relatively miniscule. 

I don't think the reaction is overdone, I might be naive but when essentially every world leader, medical professional, etc. is telling me to social distance and that this could be seriously bad, I'm inclined to believe them. Still, in that same light, the same people telling us to shut ourselves away are also saying that this is manageable, and we will get through it if we do what we need to do, so I'm not too worried. 

I forget the exact quote, but here's something on the matter (I also forget the exact context behind it)

"Whether we overreact will never be clear, but if we underreact it will be extremely clear to us"

goldenboyart - Not worried about food or any supplies. But I'm going to go bust. No biz with my restaurants and I can't take a 50% weekly loss.

2 more weeks and it's all over for me. I've come to terms with it. Small businesses have such small margins that something like this can wipe them out. Just invested into another spot and spread so thin. 2019 was a banner year. This is going to shut so many businesses up, that most can't comprehend the damage.

So yeah, I'll be bankrupt in a few months after busting my ass to build something good and have security for my family.

As long as I have a roof over my head and my family/kids are good, then I will be fine. Just sucks but I'll deal with it.

Best of luck. I hope it works out well for you in the end.

Mechanical Bull - It took me some time but im at the point where im having some serious anxiety over this virus.

Didn't want to admit it, didn't want to make a big deal out of it but im officially at that point

I cant escape it, its on every channel, its all everybody is talking about.

Worried about supplies, worried about work, worried about getting sick, worried about loved ones getting sick

I have no choice but to go to work.... and that makes me concerned as well.

I was hoping we could help each other out in this thread, even if you dont want to admit that you are worried.

Thanks

Are you stuck in a big city? If not try to get outside and do something you enjoy...it can help lots.

Running, jogging, or even just walking, to get a break from reality and the damn news, can do wonders as well.

Best wishes.
