Before all this Corona I found it difficult to go shops like supermarkets for the crowds was to much.

But yes it's not nice for lots people, but people with anxiety like myself it's making things like going to the smallest shop most impossible, I've been staying in. But been putting going to shop that's less than 10 mins away.
I feel panicky nervous,😏 I finding it tough to just nip out quick. I feel like it's all overwhelming and worrying does not help. If I could only pull myself together and get food shopping ,. Any advice would be appreciated

Well I needed to go to the supermarket today. Chose a quiet time about 7.30pm hand sanitizer once in the door.. Wear disposible gloves if you have them put them on once you've done yr shopping take them off before you get in the car/bus etc. Once in the car sanitize yr hands. Once home get some water and wash fruit and veges dry in the sun. Apparantly the virus doesn't like the sun. Make sure to keep your distance from others.
If you can't manage that can you get someone else to get yr groceries and drop them at the door?
