It will be lifted in about 4 weeks time. I know, can’t tell you how, but it is a reliable source.

I keep telling people this too. It’s not going to last long if people keep up with the social distancing and self isolation guidelines that have been put in place. It sucks but if everyone does their part it will all be back to normal in the next month.

You’re ridiculous. Reliable source?! My husband is an ICU doctor this isn’t going anywhere and this is just the beginning for us! It’s going to get a lot worse!

It won’t be back to normal for years. Quarantine won’t go on that long but social distancing might.

I understa n d. I have no friends i can snap chat, call etc just me and my child. Im normally isolated by choice however this being forced to isolate does raise anxiety and makes depression worse. My counsellors gone woop woop so im stuck. I worked so hard to bevab l e to leave the house (social anxiety) and feel with this stuck home ill go backwards. Its hard. But im sure all will be ok. If I we just hold on.

Do you want a friend to talk to? I’ll give you my Snapchat, insta, email. It’s so isolating for some people at the moment and the more we can pull together the better.

Thanks ladies I wrote this 4 months ago and I have managed to keep anxiety at bay except obviously now its leaving the house which takes me back to square one. But I am alive.. Still no counsellor she obviously has gone 'under ground' maybe she was one of those bugging out people. Plenty around. But we will all be okay. Vic is still in lockdown and its okay. Life is one day at a time and thats okay. The future is unknown and its okay so long as we do the right thing and mask up, wash hands and stay away from others.

Perhaps she’s reaching out now and asking for help so she can last the long haul. Some of the answers in this thread aren’t of any help whatsoever.

Our premier has said stage 4 is likely. Which is shit but gotta do what you gotta do. I'm going crazy at home, and I'm a sahm. But it's the never leaving the house at all that's getting me, not even a half hour of freedom at the shop or anything is driving me crazy

She needs a different perspective. The perspective she already has is very bleak

ANSWER

I understand it's hard.
Try to keep your mind busy, puzzles, walks etc. If you're a social butterfly like me I've been doing face time chats with my girlfriends and family. I deleted my social media as all the talk about it was making me start to go crazy. I've just started reading a good book too.

I’m not the commenter but I don’t think it’s disrespectful at all, and I come from a military family. Don’t underestimate the severity of this and the thousands worldwide who will die. Just like in the world wars, our behaviours at home can have an impact on how many die.

Well, NSW just stated that social distancing is in place for 90 days currently. If things don’t drastically change another 90 days on top of that is entirely possible. It sucks and will continue to do so but we will all have to what is needed to keep us all safe.

It is on the news...
If you look at China example, Corona started pretty bad there early January, they are going back to “normal” now (still social distancing, but not confined to their homes)

Make sure you call someone every day, better if you can see them like FaceTime.
Exercise
Get a daily routine happening.
Start that task you’ve been putting off - sort those photos, finish that craft project, enrol in that online course, refresh that resume, whatever.
Practice gratitude - what am I grateful for today? I have a home, pets, food...
Write some virtual cards for people.
Declutter and organise your space.
Reach out if you need help to a professional.
And keep calm and carry on 😊

Snapchat is keeping me sane at the moment. I get photos, I get to send photos and I’m not tied up on calls to “see” other people. Some other things you can do is go for a walk, read a book, watch tiger king on Netflix and realise your life isn’t that bad being away from the world because those crazy people are out there, start a hobby or simply rearrange your furniture to make it feel different.

Honestly, who knows. But it won’t be over any time soon. I’m guessing at least 2 months. It’s hard, it sucks but you need to find a way to deal. For me, exercise helps. And when the kids ask me questions about the future I can’t answer I tell them all we need to do is get through the day. Because who knows what will happen tomorrow.
