We are under 9pm curfew and other strict measures since October. It's neverending hell.
I understand. Very similar here. I'm sorry you are going through that. It takes a lot of effort and motivation to keep a good routine and push ourselves into a healthier lifestyle. But then, seeing some of your loved one suffering from COVID just proves how necessary all these social distancing rules are. We've very probably done the majority of it, so one last push.I’m in Denver. We’ve been in a stay at home order with a curfew for a while, but looks like restaurants are starting to open up for in person again for reasons.....I have my bubble that I’m allowed to see, but we were all on pause over December due to some potentially seeing one person in their family. I’ve been working from home, living at home, trying to go for a walk every day, trying to get back on top of work things. I think not being able to see my family over Christmas or Thanksgiving for the first time in 26 years hit hard, and I didn’t do the right things to cope as my gym is shut, it’s cold, and I’m stuck playing Crusader Kings.
Things started to get better, but then I had a friend in the ER due to Covid complications this weekend, another one passed away, so my mentality and motivation for work are shot. Florida sounds nice this time of year.
Oh restaurants have been closed since October. It was lunch at a friend's place which is allowed (6 people max) but not exactly something people do these days. At least I haven't done it. I even spent Christmas and New Year's Eve alone at my place.I'm surprised you can even go out to have lunch with friends: JUST GO AND ENJOY IT FOR MEEEEEE ..That's one thing you guys did: keep restaurants open, ok for smaller groups. Restaurants have been closed here since mid-september (only take-out and delivery), and since October all gatherings are illegal if it's people from outside your household. With exception of people living alone, which are supposed to choose one person they can see.
Right there with you. I haven't seen anyone in about three weeks now, and it's hard to sit and do 8 hours of work straight at home at the moment, especially with everything else going on.I work from home M,W, and F. On Tuesday and Thursday I do go into office. But beyond that, I don't really go into stores or restaurants if at all.
While it's nice to leave the house. Between COVID and the recent instability sometimes I do have anxiety/panic attacks and then I don't leave the house for a week at a time and get all gloomy and depressed.
Same here. Even though it's a way to see your friends beside calling them, I get frustrated with zooming. A group of friends tries to meet every couple of weeks, but it's not the same and I rather stay out of it....I read an article recently that said that right now, the only pressure we should put on ourself is to get through the day. I think sometimes we try to do too much: work 8 hours, work out, eat well, show up to zoom with family and friends, take walks, etc. Seriously, it's a fucking horrible and tough time. Let's just manage get through it without too much harm.
I personally do not do much friend zooms because I am literally between 6-8 hours on Teams meetings all day. I just can't do it anymore, I chat with them, even do phone calls, but no zooms. It not natural to be on so much screen time.
Let's make sure we keep posting in this thread and supporting each other. Now we need Bruno to post hot shirtless guys to cheer up the mood
I’ll get all of them or any of them or litteraly anyone at this point
