Going a bit insane as I don’t even dare go out for a walk as my health anxiety kicks in. But missing going out biking.
Glad I’ve got a few unfinished games to get back on and finish

I go and sit in our little courtyard and read comics but my brain goes Into overdrive then freak out thinking I have it. So I end up back in doors.
So I just use my exercise bike to try keep fit.

Yeah must keep fit, I am working still, no longer in the office, back on track as a support role, it at least allows me to have some freedom.  Can't handle cabin fever.

Luckily I can work from home as it is all computer based so that's a bonus, but being made redundant by end of June not so good. Time to look for another job and at my age I ain't liking my chances  :-\

Sorry to hear the sky.
I was made redundant a couple of years ago and found it hard to find a new job with my anxiety problem. So just been doing a freelance jobs for my partners boss. But mainly been airbrushing predator suits for people or doing art and design stuff.

Unfortunately my artistic skills are confined to stick men and 3yr old painting  ::)

Sorry to hear about the redundancies guys, I went through 2 within a 2 year period and it was the worst time of my life.

Still working and for a critical industry that supply’s parts to the medical industry as well is other industry’s but due to bottom dropping out of automotive they are furloughing 25% of my workforce but I am not one of them so far thank goodness.

The one silver lining from all this covid 19 is I have started to watch a lot of series that I missed like stranger things plus the cars have never been cleaner  :P

Sorry to hear about the troubles people are having, I just hope we are ‘almost there’ and in the next 4/5 weeks some things start getting back to whatever normal will be..

I’m in the ‘shielded’ category so should be stuck in a room for another 9 weeks but it does my heed in so I have to go for a cheeky run early in the morning when nobody is really around. As above, managing to get caught up on Netflix and gaming though so that’s ok.

Doing nothing is way more tiring than I ever thought it would be though..
