    Honestly, it's such a scary time, my anxiety has come back and the bad thing about that is that when I'm anxious I always have eating problems. It's also tricky because of the uncertainty like you dolls said, I'm a big worrier so I'm constantly worried about my parents because they have to go to work. I'm a student and my part-time job is kinda over now so I have to stay home but they cant. I try to not check up on the statistics but it's hard, in Poland were going to hit 1000 cases soon and I know in comparison to other countries it's not that bad but I'm shaken up, cause i never thought I would experience something like this during my life.

I hope you can find something so you can at least be a little at ease. Sending hugs to everyone that yall stay safe and healthy.

    hello dolls. I see that a lot of people Are staying at home in other country’s. In Lithuania everything is closed for two weeks right now and thinking about stay closed for another month. I really like this. But here I’m. Stuck in Germany 😞 I live here right now. But I’m here alone and scared. I still have to go to work. I see a lot of people going outside. I Really hope we gonna get changes soon! My German language is weak. I don’t understand everything but my friend helps my with this so I know what’s happening. But right now I’m so scared 🥺
    Awww, I feel so bad you are in this situation.  But in some small way, you have us here. So while we are adhering to social distancing, we can still be close.  Each day is one day closer to this being over.  Hold onto that.  And whenever you get a real pang of loneliness, please come here and reach out.   I have been around a looong time, and I have seen things I never thought I’d see.  And I’ll be honest....I never imagined something like this.  But, the shell shock is wearing off, and I’m looking for and finding strength in all different places.  Imagining my ancestors going through the depression and yet, here I am generations later, and on the whole, my life is good.  And in 90 years, your descendants will look back on your strength, and feel the same.  I admire the matriarch who came over in 1880 from Germany. Lived through more hardships than I can imagine.  And that helps me.

    being in solitude somewhat, you are probably very safe health wise.  And for the loneliness, just come here and reach out.   We are all in this together.   <3

    @Suri_Madden thank you so much you absolute angel, I really really appreciate that from you, it honestly means the world to me 💕 Wish I had seen this comment sooner as I was having a really rough evening but I eventually managed to reach out to a very close friend of mine who was really validating of my feelings and gave me some really good advice and motivation to keep my head up and to keep going instead of just dismissing how I feel because "we're all in the same boat" like my dad does (which I'm not denying, it's just some people's boats are yachts and others are sinking rowboats, if you get what I mean?)
    Might have to take you up on the offer at some point if that's okay 💕💕

    @robertavyy I can't even imagine how you must be feeling right now. I can't see my family but they are in the same city as me. I'm so sorry that you have to be so far from them AND still have to go to work. All of this shit is so unfair and scary, all I can do is hope that it blows over while we're on lockdown (I don't know about every country being in lockdown, but mine just decided to, finally). Please try and be strong and have hope that we will all get through this, it might feel like it right now but you're not alone 💕

    Thank you! 💕 I wish that Germany finally do something bigger for us. And makes good decisions to make people stay at home. Because I still see a lot of people going outside just for a walk with baby’s and little kids. and that’s makes me really mad. 😠😓 how some people can be so irresponsible 🤦🏼‍♀️☹️

    It's almost scary how empty the streets and highways are now. I can't imagine what it must feel like for those areas that are on total lockdown. Plus it was foggy this morning so extra spooky with nobody around.

    Lisylis That looks so peaceful! We have a trail behind my house but it's nowhere near that pretty. Do you run into a lot of people?

    @soundspretty I usually run into a few people, usually walking their dogs. There's not much room to pass so I'm trying to take either the less traveled paths or the wider ones to try to avoid contact.

    Also I have to be a lot more careful where I put my feet than usual because the paths are a bit uneven and I do NOT want to need a helicopter rescue 😂

    Hey guys, my friend sent me this article from the Harvard Business Review and it honestly improved my mood today...it talks about how what a lot of what we are feeling is a form of anticipatory grief, and it really helped me better understand and express all the complex feelings that this crisis has brought up for me. I hope you like it!

    I wanted to share that since New Zealand has been in quarantine conditions and my gym has been closed, I've been going for runs in my local park instead. I'm gonna post a couple of photos I've taken today and in the last few days.


    I could be wrong is that Te mata peak? I love hiking there!!! ❤️

    Hi guys, I wanted to pop in to see how you are all doing during this tough abs scary time! Ireland is an odd place to be right now like many other countries im sure! Everything is shutting down, we all must stay inside except for a walk, run or cycle alone or with members of our household! Groceries and pharmaceuticals are the only other reason we should be leaving our house.
     I started a job two weeks ago which I love but yesterday I was sent home for the foreseeable future! I’m with my family at home which is lovely! What are you all doing to keep occupied?
    i must say my anxiety is at an all time high for the first time in two years but I’m trying to limit my media consumption and I’m baking today and will start into a 2k piece jigsaw too! 
    Let’s keep each other safe by staying home.

    Hey guys ! So I haven't been ignoring this thread but I've been wanting to comment on this but didnt really have the chance too. I'm from NY and my city looks like ghosttown rn. There are few ppls out and about but not that much though. Even when I be taking public transportation, the trains and buses be looking empty too. My mayor and my governor from my state actually ordered a lot of ppls businesses to be shutdown due to this coronavirus pandemic. Not to even mention that schools and colleges are closedown too that students now have to take online classes. Not everywhere is on lockdown though. My state hasn't been putting ppls on curfews though. Luckily, I haven't been laid off from my job and thank goodness for that. I'm just so grateful to still be working at such a difficult time like this. I'm not actually on self-quarantine since I'm considered to be an essential worker. So what I basically do is that I'm an employee for Amazon prime and I'm online grocery shopping for my customer's order at whole foods supermarket. I've just never seen anything like this before. Ppls are so scared of contracting this immune disease that they're out and about in public wearing facemask and gloves😷 and what's disheartening is that labor workers are making these everyday and healthcare workers are at risk bc of ppls greed and hoardiness. My only reasoning why ppls are freaking out is bc there is no vaccine for this as of yet and no antiviral drugs to recover from this either. That's ultimately the underlying issue here. Its actually saddens me to hear that some ppls are dying from this immune disease and then again some ppls are able to survive from it. At my job, my company is actually taking precautions about the coronavirus pandemic and has changed everything now. I'm also practicing social distancing at my workplace and my personal life as well. They are following cdc guidelines and are practicing cleanliness at the workplace and sanitary care. I'm making sure to take care of myself foremost by practicing hygienic care. Ik that I have such a weakened immune system so I tend to worry about that. But, I'm actually not that fearful of what's been going on lately bc I cant even live my life like this being afraid every single day. I'm taking vitamin supplements to strengthen my immune system. I'm actually learning along the way before. I'm actually interested in learning how to make my own hand sanitizer after when I founded out that most stores ran out of hand sanitizer when ppls were freaking out and thought that supermarkets were gonna get closed down too. I think that would be a fun activity for me to do over the weekend.

    ETA: typos. I apologize if this seems too long to read.

    @snakiekkh girl I'm sorry that your job isnt even following cdc guidelines and making sure that your workplace is safe and healthy otherwise. They should also consider practicing social distancing too. They really needs to provide their employees with hand sanitizers and gloves as well. Most supermarkets are closing their business hrs early to sanitize the entire store. Is your job even doing that?

    @Carol Davida They finally started giving staff gloves on Sunday (way way  too late when so many transactions are cash) but none of my colleagues seemed to be wearing them because they're "inconvenient" or "uncomfortable" which is baffling to me- it's better than nothing! 

    Apparently today they finally implemented a 30 customer limit of people allowed in the store. I've not been to work since Sunday thankfully but I do worry every shift as work is not doing enough for us and nor are the customers. Like we're meant to be on lockdown but my colleagues are saying that customers are treating their daily shop visit (which should be weekly really) as a chance to socialise. It's a nightmare!

    I know we definitely don't have people cleaning the store more than usual out of hours, as on Sunday I was asked to spray and wipe down the shelves so I think they're just relying on us to keep it as clean as possible which is a nightmare, especially as it puts us even closer to the customer.

    I'd usually complain about my lack of hours (and lack of pay) but if it's keeping me out of the store besides those 9 hours a week I'll take the cut to my paycheque hahahah!

    They're finally closing our store, but the warehouse is still open which is where I work. It makes me nervous to be working but at the same time I'm thankful to be still getting paid. Plus I'm in an office so not much exposure. If they end up closing the warehouse too, I'll see a reduction in pay and they don't even have a plan of what's going to happen after 30 days. Factories which send us goods are starting to shut down so I predict they'll be cutting back hours and cutting staff soon. Thankfully they have no plans to fire anyone so again, thankful. I'm a planner though and this uncertainty has got me on edge.

    I'm honestly so jelly of some ppls who are able to work from home. And unfortunately in my case, I cant even do that. 😭 I feel like I'm putting my own health at risk during this crisis. But, I really needs to earn my money and staying at home ain't really an option for me. Because rent and bills gotta get paid. And our landlord doesnt to want wait for our rent money bc of greed and being money hungry.

    @snakiekkh girl I even feel uncomfortable working with my gloves on too :neutral: that I really dont mind reusing my hand sanitizer over and over again. I've tried it once didn't really like it so I'm resorting it to the good old handwashing process. Heck I even have to use my antibacterial hand wipes before using the shopping carts and the iPhone that I gotta work with at my job too.

    Samesies with my job too. The customers at my job has to go through the security at the entrance door just for them to enter inside of whole foods. I've seen that is a long line of waiting for these customers apparently. I usually enter inside of the second entry door of my job and show the security guard my ID work badge so that'll they'll know that I'm an employee from Amazon prime. They even locked the third backdoor of my job knowing that everyone had access to it from before :lol:

    My company actually added a new position called cleaners so if a shopper wants to clean the workstation at my job they surely can be signing up to work that shift. I haven't decided to do it since I'm extremely sensitive to those Clorox disinfectant wipes that are being used to clean at my  job :weary: like it literally make my eyes to cry just by the strong smell of it😭

    My job like literally changed everything. The customers aren't even allowed to hangout at the lounge anymore. I've noticed that they're maintaining it. Only the employees who's working for whole foods and Amazon prime are allowed upstairs at the lounge. I just show the security guard my ID work badge and they just let me pass through :lol:
