I Have Been Having Nightmares

So all this isolation and covid-19 fear is really getting to me. Last night, I was already tense as I went to sleep. I woke up from a nightmare, shaking and my whole body was full of tension. I was terrified from the nightmare, although I soon forgot what it was about, but I just wrapped my arms around myself trying to stop the shaking and trying to ease my body to relax.

In the grand scheme of things, I know I’m luckier than most going through this, but the isolation, the going through it alone, the fear of shopping, constant hand washing and sanitizing everything is really starting to stress me. This is when I really wish for, and need, two strong arms to hold me, but that’s not happening...maybe never again. Like many people, I need comfort, but that’s a luxury now.

I'm sorry you're having a tough time. ((Hug)) I've been Spring cleaning to help keep me focused. Sometimes I just get and watch Netflix.

I’ve been watching YT the whole winter. Even that has lost its sparkle. What’s your favorite to watch?@Buildingadoor
