I'm starting to not want to go out of the house. I'm not afraid of the virus.

I'm starting to not want to go outside of the house at all. I pick up groceries now. My friend wants me to go out and I don't want to go. I'm dealing with depression and anxiety. I'm on meds and I'm talking to a counselor once a week. I don't feel like I'm getting any better.

I almost never go out. I can go weeks without ever leaving the house. Suits me well.

Personally I think lockdown has had a lot to do with it. I very rarely go out. I had to go to the dentist yesterday but I must admit it was spotless and had to wait outside until they were ready. I went to a shop last Monday but there was only 10 people in and my hubby is with me in case I get panicky. Baby steps at first.

I also do not want to go outside to expose myself to the world. However, my job and my life force me to go out, so I try my best to adapt to it. The social situations often make me feel tired, but I feel really relaxed when coming home.

Snap. I’m having issues at the moment with how I look - and being in lockdown has obviously suited me to a tee when not feeling like I’m looking my best. But it’s a vicious cycle, and I’m too getting very anxious about starting to meet up with friends etc again and get back to a sense of ‘normality’. I’m going to a funeral in a few days and it’ll be the first time I’ll have been on a bus/train and seeing family for over a year. I don’t think I’ve really thought too much about that.

I’ve decided just to be honest with people. Not everyone, but friends I trust who have been asking to meet up. I’ve told some more than others, but it has helped and feels like a weight has been lifted. Could you do that?

I'm a psychology student from Brasil, and your content always fills me with curiosity and determination to study and learn more about psychology as a whole. I've struggled with generalized anxiety disorder for as long as I can remember, and health anxiety has been a strong aspect of it lately (although I'm happy to say that through my therapy I've become way better at dealing with it). That said, I still have trouble limiting my media consumption
