I'm 37 and have had social anxiety and depression since my teens.. I've had better moments and always looking to get "better". Well, quarantine has made me feel like I lost all progress and I can't go to therapy or join support groups. I live alone with a really cute cat but I feel like I'm losing it with the isolation. I've been having anxiety going into the grocery store wondering if I'm too close and I can't see people's faces, then I feel panic and the masks make it hard to breath. I joined an online NA meeting just to talk to people and I don't even do drugs

Hiya akt, welcome to the club.

I'm sure there are a few here struggling with the lockdown so you are not alone. Hope the site helps you.

For me this lockdown stuff has made me feel like going more back to nature, live wild a little and say goodbye to the hectic **** of modern life. Reckon it would do a lot of people a lot of good.

**** your feelings !!

Hey akt, welcome to SAS.

Even if our scars donít match thereís no wrong you canít make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure thereís things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then Iím really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. Thatís whatís holding the bricks together.

Hi, akt. Welcome. Lockdown has fed my anxiety and agoraphobia for sure. You're definitely not alone.
