13 months of isolation and anxiety.
Fri Apr 23 2021
I’ve sat at home for the last 13 months, worrying. I have severe chronic anxiety. I have a spouse who works in front line healthcare in an aerosol generating role. I have multiple kids in school and daycare. I’m not quite old enough and a little too healthy for the vaccine. I have a job working with vulnerable populations that can be done from home at the detriment of my clients. I’ve avoided people entirely because my kids are exposed to other kids. I sit and wait and suffer in fear because others are slightly more important than me to get vaccinated I guess. I know I’m lucky to have a wife and kids but no friends for 13 months and anxiety every single day worrying about myself and everyone else is awful.
