I feel like the codependent people such as in my situation are well, being pushed over the edge. I've never much used social skills to survive and before covid, I didnt have to. Now that I do, its being stuck between a rock and a hard place. And pretending there are people to socialize with. Which there are but its very hard. This is what I imagine being elderly is like. People you knew have "died off" in a way. You have limited mobility, somewhat limited resources and no one thinks to reach out to you. :/
It all sounds very grim, until you realize that all of humanity has gotten to this point because they had to get along just for survival.
