And we are in week I don’t even know of lockdown. But it’s fair to say the lack of meaningful human interaction is starting to take it’s toll. I’m an introvert but even us introverts will start to crack if left alone with our thoughts for too long. I’m lucky I have access to social media and people to talk to virtually but I’m definitely starting to feel more low than usual.
My sleep schedule is non existent
I’ve started having anorexic thoughts again. Sometimes some really intense ones that have been hard to not give into.
My brain fog is worse and my ability to concentrate also worse.
There are things other people can do, which would help like they’re daily outdoor exercise which I’m not yet really well enough to do. Daily. (Although getting there)
I feel this social experiment COVID-19 has played on us leads to two questions being asked.
Will we have the mental health services and resources to help everyone after this?
Is there going to be more awareness of the fact that poor mental health in people with chronic illness is oftentimes secondary as a result of the isolation it causes?
I really hope so!
