I'm so isolated and lonely. I am super stressed because I'm finally coming back to school after being too disabled to do anything for a year and a half amd my school has in person classes the 2nd summer session but NO ACCESSIBLE HOUSING so I cant get wheelchair accessible housing that's affordable for my summer classes. I csnt afford an accessible apartment that's not provided by usc at this tim .

I dont know what to feel. I'm afraid because I'm locked at home with my abusive fiancee and his abusive words and actions have only increased since the pandemic, today is the four year anniversary of my mother's passing from cancer so I'm more depressed than usual, constantly worry about my 70 year old father who has not stopped working, and my two year old daughter...every little sniffle or cough she gets I panic. Feeling like things would be better if I just do everyone a favor and disappear

Hello, I am a truck driver that delivers essentials so I am glad that I am working, however I am SCARED out of my mind about this virus//// I pray that I or my fellow drivers don`t get this ///though one that I know has and died////
This thing is not to be messed with/// I don`t stay home I go for walks but later when there are fewer people around
but it is very lonely //I can not date or meet anyone so my time off is pretty empty/// makes me sad//time wasting away //// I try to stay busy by getting into online business but it is very slow at getting any money coming in//// Got to press on and HOPEFULLY they will get a vaccine for this or at least be able to stop it from killing us//// I am concerned for my 86 year old mother///////
@Kj2020 Thanks for doing what you're doing. Hats off to you and other essential workers, you all are so brave. I understand feeling alone.
@adamputman1962 I feel for you it's tough all around. I'm from New York City and they just extend the Broadway shut down til September. Some regents of New York State is going reopen and regions are close to opening but the city and Long Island is no way near ready to open. I am not working right now and I can only apply for jobs on line through my phone. I go out to shop for food get my medicine and take walks for exercise. This virus scares me too, my mom can't even step out of her home. Stay safe Pray this will get better soon
hi everyone. During this pandemic my mental health has severally gone down the drain. I'm stressed constantly and my depression has become worse. I have no motivation to continue my studies anymore. I have kinda just lost hope in my life. Do you have any recommendations on how I could possible keep my mental health up?
I guess I have to look for the good in the bad. I came off the road 2 weeks ago, I was having problems getting in and out of the truck, and problems with my hernia. I went in to the hospital , and since it was not life threatening, I was told that I had to wait. First I went to walmart, and used the blood pressure machine, and wrote down my numbers, I walked around some, retook it, and I wrote down my new numbers, and I repeated it a 3rd time, I took my temperature, and talked to a online doctor that put me back on blood pressure meds. I found out that the company that I drive for never turned in my insurance papers, so I have no insurance, but I did get financial aide from a hospital. I had a appointment at a walkin clinic on Monday, I was put on stronger blood pressure meds, and I was set up for a MRI on Tuesday, , and now I have surgery in a few days for my hernia, and they are going to tell me if I had a mini stroke or not. I put off going to see a doctor over the past few years, I started having chest pain, a few times, my left side went numb, my left eye started rapid firing open and close, and all of a sudden, my left eye dropped . It was like my right eye was normal, but my left eye, I could not focus on anything, and it took about 10 minutes for it to pass and my vision to be normal again. And of course with my hernia, my intestine has been out of place for awhile, causing it harder to pass waste, so I gained quite a bit of weight over the past year. So Friday will help me start to get things in order with my health. And I have been putting in applications with other companies, so things are starting to look up.

@adamputman1962 I have a hernia too. Because it is such a complicated hernia, i am having a hard time finding someone to do my surgery. My mental health has gotten worse too. I feel really bad for you
