Great parenting

Today, after a year of staying at home, I finally went out. I had a panic attack and couldn't breathe, so my mum decided to scream at me and slap me so I'd become "normal". FML

The pandemic has done a lot of weird things to a lot of us, especially those of us more prone to being shut-ins in the first place.

I still see movies and TV, even from years ago, and see them at parties without masks, up close in a crowd, and think "what the hell is going on," for a second. I'm fine going outside staying away from people, as I walked my dog the whole lockdown, but it will probably be a long time before I feel comfortable again in a big crowd at a concert or super-busy store or restaurant without masks.

Generalized anxiety is a moderately common diagnosis, and can be treated. I hope you can see or telephone a doctor or specialist. I know a person whose life is very limited due to his inability to see an expert, and it breaks my heart. LIFE IS TOO SHORT. See someone. Please.
