Has anyone else been having see-saw mental days during quarantine? Most days of the week I’m fine, work most of the day, watch something in the evening with an occasional walk here or there then sleep - repeat. Weekends mainly for rest and binge watching, home workouts 4-5x a week. But mentally I can be normal one moment then just start feeling flat out down/ deflated another. Takes a long time to come out of that mental rut once I’m in that hole.

The last few days I absolutely hit my wall. I was doing ok juggling single mom-ing and work but now I’ve just shut down and having an impossible time getting back on the horse.
Decided to give myself today off to regroup... realized I was slowly floating around the kitchen organizing my cabinets as a mindless activity.
This is all too much and seems like so many companies aren’t going to have us back in the office so we’ll need to adjust to working at home. Hopefully we’ll get some normalcy in other aspects of life.

Idk if it’s the single life (hasn’t bothered me before, 30m) but the cluster of job stress, isolation, and general feeling of me being the only one there for myself takes a toll. Curious if others are having similar experiences due to the current times and have any tips or if it’s just me :/

Same @OP — 28F. I’m in a big city too — so feels especially isolated since my nights and weekends used to be so social. Definitely mentally fatigued (like the movie Castaway) as I’ve been WFH for the past 90 days. 🙈 FaceTiming and calls with friends/family help for sure.

So many days in a row I’ve felt great and sobbed in the same 8 hours.

There’s a reason why isolation is used as a punishment. We’re not programmed to be solitary.

Good grief is obtaining credit through cards so easy. My wife and I, both in our 30’s, zero credit card balances on 6 different cards and we have a combined 100k in unused credit. We keep opening every time we get a new 15 month 0% offer, purchase something to update the house and then pay it off within the 15 months, and collecting usually a small chunk in cash back rewards. My parents think we’re nuts, but does anyone else use CC offers as a weapon and not a burden?

A friend started a new job and went into the office knowingly someone in his household had Covid. Now tested positive too and keeps going in. Claiming it on fears to lose his job right away if he calls in sick. I am disgusted. He was very cautious the entire pandemic, so I am really surprised too. Are there really companies which fire people for this? No wonder it’s spreading like wildfire then.
