Response to OldBaldy1701E (Original post)

20. I second the idea that this year has intensified existing issues.

Whatever someone was dealing with before the last year has been magnified a thousand times by all of the issues surrounding the pandemic.

I say this not to argue, but simply to remind you to give yourself some compassion. There are so many good responses here that I have nothing to add.

My life was actually reasonably stable (ups and downs and trauma and pain - but I was dealing with it!!) before the pandemic hit. With the added stress, job loss, fear, isolation, etc., it has become too much for me to even fake that Iím dealing with it like I should. Scares the hell out of me, too, because as you mentioned upthread, unless youíre wealthy, resources are pretty much nonexistent. Iíve had to do some real soul searching to try to understand why I feel like I do, and some of that had been cathartic. Some frightening.

So, I know this isnít helpful to you, but I just want you to know that there are people still in this world who care about other people. I wish you peace.
