Agoraphobia and Coronavirus

Postby CammieMe » Thu Dec 17, 2020 8:03 am

My friend says the lockdown has been convenient for her since it didn't cause much of a change in her life pre-corona, and she doesn't have to explain herself every time she didn't want to come to meet with people. I was wondering how you did during the lockdown? For some, this would cause further anxiety due to the uncertainties.

I only left my house twice during the entirety of 2020. Not because I'm super scared of covid necessarily but because I'm scared of pretty much everything else including people. I for sure have some level of agoraphobia. I can't drive due to OCD/anxiety so that kinda limits my options for places to go. At least during 2019 I was making something of an effort to go out more, covid just got me to retreat further into my bubble.

It seems like this year had been for self-realization as we are needed to stay home. For some, it must mean safe haven while most, especially the sociable people, are extremely affected mentally by the lockdowns. I couldn't say I'm either of both. There are perks and then there's loneliness at times especially during the holidays. I miss hanging out with friends and family without having to worry about getting infected by some virus.

Hi. Anxiety has been sky high. I like the article in the link you sent about eating healthily. If there's one thing good about the lockdowns, it would be less fast food consumption.

Funny how people indulge in junk foods and then spend on healthcare. It seems like they do have an understanding really.

I think the generation nowadays is all about indulgence. We are so enticed by the quote "You only live once," or maybe too exposed to social media showing us we can have this and that, that we are deviated to what's truly essential which is compassion. Yes, fast foods and other artificial taste enhancers are truly irresistible. But the people who promote this only care about the short-term effect on people, which is to enjoy food for as long as they can until they are sick. I'm not saying they should care because a lot of businesses will be closed if everyone cares.

Business is business. That's why we can't expect anyone to think about our welfare but ourselves. We can choose what we can put inside our bodies. We have the free will to say no to what we think is not good for us.

Some people I know have developed an intense fear of COVID-19 and have barely left the house and they don't have agoraphobia. I have known a fair amount of people who have had COVID-19 and they all survived. Some had very minimal symptoms, while a few were pretty sick. We can all just do the best we can, like wearing a mask, maintaining social distancing and washing our hands frequently or using alcohol based hand sanitizer. I client of mine (I am a CPA) who was 77 years old developed an intense fear of COVID-19 and began being over vigilant. He owned a business and was having someone else pretty much operate it. He passed away suddenly from a heart attack, which was of course nothing related to COVID-19. My advice is to do the best you can, follow all guidelines, but you can't live in fear either.
