Checking the pulse. Aside from WFH, how has COVID affected your project/workload/paycheck? What line of work you do and which industry you consult for?

Normally, I work in strategy as a tech advisory consultant. My current project is supporting a banking call center trying to distribute small business loans and PPP applications to bank customers as part of the stimulus package/CARES Act.

Which industry are you in?

I’m in the public sector doing tech consulting and the work has been exactly the same. I also have a TON of business development work going on, like double what I usually have.

Anyone have experience with the mental effects of COVID? I’m on day 12 and struggling with the ability to concentrate, my brain feels like it’s stuffed with cotton and I suffer from a lot of spatial disorientation to the point where I sometimes can’t make sense of words or follow sentences. Last night I had several minutes where I watched my screen move and swim in several directions. I’m beginning to think I’ll have to take time off since it’s clearly affecting my ability to mentally function.

No surprise - this has been a tough year for most. Often people joke about the “difficult and uncertain times.” But recent events have made this phrase not a joke. Idk if it’s appropriate to just drop extremely sad news on your coworkers (especially WFH) but I️ also want them to understand I’m not TRYING to be distracted from work. I WISH it was all made up & not true, but I’ve lost 5 friends/family members since this June. Four of whom tragically lost their lives before turning 25 years old
