Has this lockdown made you refocus your priorities? Being stuck in the US has made me wonder whether I want to live here long term. Nothing else but the family factor. Cont

I live here and my family is back in India. I have 0 family here so should something were to happen to me or I were to get a sever case of covid or any other disease for that matter, I’ll be by myself. My parents won’t be able to visit in the current situation and I can’t be with them if they get sick . Seriously thinking if I need to move back to India but terrified of starting over. Anyone else feeling this or am I thinking too much.

OP - regardless where you are given the nature of the COVID 19, you will be by yourself. Even in India you will be put in isolation without family to avoid passing it on to your parents Stay strong this is just bad time and will pass

Same. My parents actually passed away, and I have been in the US since I was 18. So all my friends and career are here. But this is an individualistic society. You find a partner and that’s it, you’re a couple and there is no sense of community. I find that my desi friends are more giving, considerate and generous, even though I love my American friends.

No but I get what you mean. Difficult to ensure the security of your family when you’re so far away. But stay strong and have faith :) the world will get through this.

Someone I’ve know since childhood reached out to me last week. She has been struggling with serious health issues for a long time and has been put into hospice because she was denied treatment for so long due to COVID. I went and saw her and I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I’m shaking and I am just so lost. I don’t really know what I’m asking for I just need anything right now.
