It’s very strange to be an anxiety sufferer at the moment because basically EVERYONE is anxious so it’s the new normal.
I would never have thought that a pandemic would cure my anxiety but it appears to be doing so.
I think it is partly because as I have said above everyone else is anxious too. Also, the Covid-19 pandemic puts absolutely everything else going on in my life into perspective.
None of that divorce shit, or work-related stress matters anymore. The fact that I might die because of my job (I’m a doctor) makes me feel strangely calm. It might make no sense to anyone else but me, but basically for the past 2 years I have had continuous worries that one day I’ll become suicidal. It’s a frequent rumination of mine.
But now, because I am at risk of succumbing to Covid it’s taken those thoughts away.
