My life hasn't really changed that much. ( other than hoping that no one is coming towards me in the grocery aisle.) I don't really have friends to socialize with and can not afford restaurants, bars, concerts, sports events, vacations or traveling. My work has been done partially online before. I'm single, middle aged and home most of the time other than my usual walks outside . My income does not allow for shopping trips for clothes or new household items for fun. No one makes a big fuss on my birthday. It just seems odd that people are complaining so much about these things. There are lots of real reasons for stress during the pandemic. But lots of people are like me and have not gone out to restaurants or trips before either.
