You know what?

I decided I'm not gonna post anymore until the coronavirus pandemic is over. (Unless I change my mind for whatever reason.)

It's pretty clear that:
- If I DO post about the coronavirus, I get seen as a bad person for reacting to it in the way I am (wishing social distancing would EVENTUALLY end and stating that I don't think I can be happy again until I know it will end eventually; thinking about it so much since so many things I enjoy might be cancelled or delayed; etc.) or for the way I word it.
- If I post about anything OTHER than the coronavirus, then (assuming I somehow successfully do so without mentioning the virus once, which is almost impossible) I get seen as a bad person for talking about anything else.

So, looks like my best course of action is to not post at all until I can do so without having to worry about being criticized for what I choose to post about. I'll probably still reply to comments, but that's it.

See you when the pandemic is over!... IF the pandemic is ever over, which I still don't think it ever will be...

I'm not going on hiatus forever - just until the pandemic is over (and even that's a maybe).

I think it's for the best that I stop posting for a while. This pandemic has driven me completely insane. While the "irrational" and "rational" sides of my personality have often been at odds with one another, it's NEVER been like this - I find myself constantly going back and forth between being angry at the people breaking social distancing guidelines and angry at the people enforcing them. Never before have I wished so badly that I could separate those two sides of me into two separate people - because they get along so poorly, it's like they ARE two separate people. I've already said way too many things I regret or worded poorly as a result of this. I think it's in my best interest to stop posting until the pandemic has been over long enough that I can get my mental health back.

You do not get seen as a bad person for reacting to it however you react to it.

I'm depressed. Because the world is ending and there has not been ANY proof that things will ever get better. I'm unable to think about anything except the fact that the world is ending, no matter how hard I try

I hate, hate, hate, HATE the term "social distancing". And being reminded of the coronavirus in any other way.

That's my entire personality now. And it will be until our world is back to normal.

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you still have to wear them.

    I thought I told you that I DO wear a mask whenever I am required to or am told to. Why are you acting like I don't?…

    Looking back at the Spanish Flu pandemic, it obviously wasn't like that forever. I don't know if people had problems with being able to adjust.

    They probably won't be mandatory forever, but you…

    well before the pandemic, youre supposed to wash your hands before you eat, and after youve been to the toilet. Or if youve got something on your hands. Thats all.

    With the pandemic, its an add on…

    Even before this pandemic I've tried to wash my hands whenever I needed to - but I've never been sure if I'm doing so well enough or often enough. :(

    but this is now our new normal.

    As I said to arcadia30 above, I'm tired of hearing "new normal" because it implies that it will be like this forever and/or that I'm a bad person for being unable to…
