Current Mental Health – July 2020

It’s been a busy month, despite being restricted from many of the things my husband and I normally do, like going out to eat, and to the movies. This has affected my mental health by increasing my anxiety. I’m kind of afraid of leaving the house by myself again and/or catching the virus. I can’t be the only one?

We had a chance to take a road trip to Wisconsin and relax, and I got plenty of reading done. My in-laws met us at the Airbnb we were staying at and we got to spend some time with them. It was a nice vacation and one I’m glad we were able to take.

I’ve been having better days this past month, even though I’ve mostly felt “meh.” This past week has been a pretty good one. I’ve been showering more regularly, which is a sign that I’m not depressed. When depression strikes it’s difficult for me to shower. It’s one of my red flags.

Fingers crossed that I have more good days than meh in August.

How does the pandemic affect your anxiety? If it doesn’t, I’d like to hear from you, too.

  1. The hot weather drives me too shower too 💦
    I was ok Barb until lockdown started to ease and then I started to get mild anxiety. I thrived during lockdown itself though.

    1. Lockdown wasn’t too bad for me, either. I mostly stay at home even when there is no pandemic! I’m glad you thrived!!

  2. It’s been difficult not going on an actual vacation though I’ve seen people still do it here. I just can’t with the anxiety of it all. Otherwise I’ve at least had a job to keep me busy.
