  1. As it’s now Mental Health Month, 2021, I wonder if anyone will cover the mental health issues that come as a result of WFH ending and people returning to work.

    When WFH began last year, my employer wanted to have these check-in meetings, to see how everyone was adjusting. For me, it was weird. I live here. I don’t need to adjust to being at home. But, for those who are extroverts, being at home alone or even with family, it appears to give them tremendous anxiety. Still, because commuting to the workplace everyday, has been so normalized, being an introvert and wanting to work alone at home, makes you a freak. At minimum, you’re considered lazy, cheating and not healthily-social, when all you want is a peaceful workday and, sometimes, without the anxiety of constantly leaving your pets alone.

    My GP was surprised that I am an introvert and someone once called me a high-functioning introvert, which is probably true. But, my GP also asked her other patients how they felt and 100% of them said they were introverts so, I expect that, returning to the office is going to be a very big stress, like it is for me.

    It is true that a lot of the stress comes from that which I cannot change. So, I’ve already gone through a decent depression and mourning meal of pasta and am trying to distract myself, anyway I can, even if it’s to be better organized for a return to work, so I have to grit my teeth less, the day that may come. I still plan to ease into it. I DO NOT want to participate in big catchup events and chatting, if I return. If I can, I will quietly steal an unused office, just to get work done.

    And, as an important side note, it isn’t really anxiety that I feel. I don’t get nervous around people. I’m simply disinterested and don’t want to be bothered.

  2. I find it disturbing that Youtube is censoring COVID-related content especially as it pertains to mental health services. A video like this should have over 100000 views.

  3. Realize that you are not alone.

    If one is cognizant of that much I believe that same person has a pretty good grip on reality.

    Try to stick to a schedule or routine.

    There's no such thing as a schedule when one is in disoriented frame of mind.

    Exercise and increase physical activity.

    Like hallucinating and screaming?

    Avoid alcohol / drugs / self medication.

    Yeah, that's going to help a lot.

    People seem to drink more when it's been recognized one life has spiraled out of control.

    Ask for help: virtual, apps, in-person

    That's not helpful advice at all, especially when dealing with someone who is not tech savvy or when communication lacks logic and rationale.

  6. What hypocrisy.

    I'm sad for Joe Biden, he doesn't have 1 friend that will tell him his Cognitive abilities are impaired. Not one friend tell him stop this Joe and retire with dignity. Not even Dr Jill. So sad. Then, MSM chooses to ignore Joe Biden's mental cognitive abilities deterioration. Shame on all of Joe Biden's friends. It's not fair to Joe it's not fair to the public it's not fair to you as journalists, if that's what you think you are! Dang, poor Joe gets the short end of the stick and you continue to act like emus and bury your heads in the sand

  7. It's hard dealing with Democrats wanting to steal peoples money constantly. Democrats refuse to help Americans with even a stimulus. Democrats are horrible evil people.

  8. READ THE BIBLE Brothers and Sisters!

    Repent and trust, believe, and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior so that you can be saved from your sins and have everlasting life and inherit the kingdom of God.

    Acts 2:38-39 ESV

    And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

    10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Revelation 21:8 (KJV)

    Matthew 24:6-7 King James Version (KJV)

    6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
