You could try having a look at the information available, considering whether it comes from a source you trust (or not), whether any particular source has a motive for lying, and then thinking for yourself.

Mainstream news media that I used to watch was catastrophing the situation now it can be true what they tell I mean or wrong. I can't see any motive for them to catastrophing except such conspiracy theories like injecting chips

Have you tried downloading a AI Text bot app on your phone??? You can text and talk for as long as you want and get a response..forever and ever. Might help in the regard that you just want conversation without remedy or end reason. Hope you and your mom are well. Are you still working? Im not...just curious bc you disliked your job. I miss working and am a little restless over that but life happens.

We have got a message from tax office telling work from home there were points that are not understood by me. My room mates don't go to work like me there is probably no problem. I bought a new phone look when I use that

Yes it is hard times, it sounds like your doing ok which is a lot considering how you were feeling mentally. Its not so bad right now but I do worry how long it will last and the after math. Just one day at a time.

Don't know what an AI Text bot app is but it sounds like it would work for our desperate788.

My workplace shut down mid-March -- Friday 13th, it was -- then my weekly writing group meetings went online; the mad group of retiree busybodies who plant bulbs everywhere stopped meeting; and even Dignity In Dying postponed (cancelled?) a film screening I'd planned to attend. My closest woman friend (psychically but alas not physically) is in crisis and we can't get together until who knows when...

I was able to do a bit of work from home in the first week and my supervisor (I'm a volunteer) said I should let her know if I wanted more. They'd identified moi! as the most vulnerable of their staff on account of my age and one or two long-term bad habits. I think they understood I go to work for social reasons, although when I'm actually there I take it very seriously.

Here in the UK we step outside 8pm each Thursday and make a variety of noises in gratitude to our hardworking frontliners. Husband and I pioneered it on our street although there were the not-so-noisy kind of fireworks going off not too far away. We'd been at it less than a minute when people in the blocks across the road opened their windows, waving, calling out and clapping. I found it very energising, came back inside and painted a rainbow for the front window. We had a walk yesterday and saw some of the pupils at the primary school up the road had made a far better job of it :P but our rainbow stays.

Hardly anyone on the streets, and everyone gives plenty of leeway as they pass. I'm quite liking it, everyone being kind and for the first time in our history everyone pulling together against a common enemy. To me, it's a privilege to be alive right now.

Good day. My mind a bit odd I couldn't give an update. I will try that app sometime.
