Don't think people realize

Living life with social anxiety is like postpandemic behavior. Staying away from others... Isolated but wanting to get out there. I've had it for 35 years and my own personal experience hasn't been any different after the virus.

I get it

I have it too. I actually thrived in lockdown because I could go for a walk knowing no one would come near me. First time in ages I've felt comfortable outside.

How do you know what your experience will be “after the virus”? The virus is still very much here. You’re speaking as if it’s over already.

Without food, clothing, shelter and air to breath we perish. Without family & community and without sense of purpose we also eventually perish. Hey all > try hard to get out of the rip-tide of these divide & conquered times and find the real foods and clean air and real communities of life and real sense of purpose > Love over negative ......

The corona virus has been with us for decades/centuries. Your response is... is but it’s a new different strain. That is true. You’re assuming far too much. Wear a mask. Wash your hands... did you already forget about antibodies and herd immunity? Please get your shot as well. And maybe a clue?

I was thinking of writing something like this myself the other day. Then here I I sitting on the couch and had a feeling to check the Georgia straight and read some of what my people have been saying.
I resonate with you and thank you for raising the awareness!
Thank you Georgia straight publishers for hearing the voice that needed to be heard.

I have not found that the covid 19 virus has impacted my life in any way. Honestly.
Other then when the pandemic first hit and I had to go to three grocery stores to find the BASICS to make hotdogs!!
We.may never meet we may never be friends but know as human beings we are All connected.
Aum. Shanti. Aum.

Sincerely, your local Caucasians (not white) woman.

Post pandemic? We are not there yet. Why would you say post? You clearly have issues which reach beyond anxiety.

Think they mean post onset of pandemic. Maybe their anxiety is compromising their ability to write clearly, but that's besides the point isn't it?
