I am not a psychologist/therapist/councillor. I’m a sufferer. Any advice here is purely from my experience of anxiety and of what works for me. It is not meant to take the place of medication or advice from a medical professional.
I suffer from anxiety. I have done for a long time. So Covid-19 has brought up all manner of fears and worries that I had never even considered before. My focus, what little there is of it, is all over the place. I’m never sure where I should be or what I should be doing for the best. Should I focus on family, or should I volunteer somewhere, or start looking for a REAL JOB to take some of the pressure off? Picking up a crochet hook seems so frivolous in light of the crisis going on!
