The coronavirus hasn’t affected my mental health so I’m doing good

The corona virus has affected my mental health as well because when I go to work and I work in the hospital and I fix my mask after I take off my gloves, I get so much anxiety because I then feel like I caught the virus and I also get anxious when someone coughs close to my arm I feel like running out of there and going home and showering with bleach because I’m my mind I feel like my skin might have absorbed the virus even though I wash my hands and sanitize a lot. I also think about it getting on my hair without me knowing or getting on my phone. I understand your pain and anxiety.

@Berrymary I think we can definitely understand you feeling that way working in such a high-stress environment!
Can anyone share any coping methods that have worked for you to ease or manage your anxiety? Do you know of any good apps or tips that help?
