  1. Sucks if you already have a history of depression and anxiety 😩

    • @Impeccable Living trump had 1 bankruptcy for 402 business’s….. amazing record. So you call out the bankruptcy to make him look bad well not mentioning 402 successes….. good show man. Maybe in your crowd your friends eat up your bs.

    • @Impeccable Living approval rating? Einstein was laughed at in the science community when he announced relativity. The math and logic was all there…. I fact look through history its always the ones who go against the grain. Hitler had 80 percent approval rating so what?

      @Joe Gibbons Trump went bankrupt *SIX TIMES* dumb-dumb. Stop gaslighting for him, he doesn’t care about you.

      @Joe Gibbons I don’t care about approval ratings, only your Bankrupt Casino God-King does and some of his cultists. I was responding to someone else’s comment about approval ratings and I simply stated the facts.

      @Max Headroom Getting to do whatever we want is a pretty big win. Trump had the opportunity to do the same, but republicans hated him, too. That’s why he failed with healthcare, the wall, and why his own Supreme Court picks rejected many of his appeals.

      Yeah, we won A LOT.

    • @Liz ZYYC65 The whole world is stunned at the gullibility of a large segment of the US, that find Drumph acceptable.
      I guess he appealed to their racist, bigoted, misogynistic feelings….And it continues…
      Unfortunately, Biden can’t fix that.
      Only after the passage of decades, will this be purged.

    • @Joe Biden Won and Trump has a Tiny Mushroom Don’t forget… lost the popular vote 2x, lost the House, lost the Senate…
      I guess this what the Trumpeteers call “winning”.

    • @Carolyn M. You should be so proud…
      – a Constitutional system that puts “family” members in the impeachment jury.
      – a Constitutional system that refuses to allow evidence and witnesses at an impeachment trial.
      I guess most criminals would welcome such “justice”.

    “Back to normal”? When in anyone’s living memory has life on this planet been anything approaching “normal”?

    Oh I missed the mass hysteria here in Europe……. you got this news where??
    Being careful is an excellent way to go forward

  10. The only anxiety I have is dreading a return to the way things were before we got to avoid people and work from home.

    • Many thanks for your email

      I had a job working for a greedy corporation once.They wanted me there soon as the sun came up,and stay until the whole afternoon was nearly over.I had to work 8 hours a day mon-thurs.Thats 32 freakin hrs a week.Felt like I basically lived at work.The pay was horrible,and we only got 1 30min break.I had to stock items on shelves and sometimes had to use a wobbly unsafe stepping stool.If you got tired and sat down the boss would yell at you.I knew my ambitions were higher,so my mother and I started our own business.We sold hemp and turquoise jewelry outside of Dave Mathews Band concerts and Bernie rallies.We did pretty good in sales.We set our own hours and didnt answer to any corporate bosses.If we just had a UBI to assist,I think we’d be doing pretty good now.We really need to start voting in more progressives.

    My brain is a lot angrier that’s all I know. And I was generally angry before the past year. This better be over soon.

  12. Ironically I feel better now a year later mainly because I was furloughed and eventually quit an extremely toxic job that was slowly killing me. Now I have an amazing work at home job and am happier and healthier than I have been since my early 20’s decades ago!

      Your dad is right about libtards. They use every crisis for political leverage, and have no problem manipulating you with emotions.

  13. I’m only depressed by the governments reaction to it.

  14. Personally, after the loss of 2 loved ones & the inability to see friends & family..i’ve had an epiphany. The importance of time, the home i have made for myself & the future i want. Getting rid of unused things. Making time for selfcare. Reading. Limiting social media & noise. Making a difference to those in need… Making every moment count!! Even when you’re doing nothing…☺

    • A king, yes, those of us who are open to learning some primal information about our animalistic nature will fare much better because we are open to learning about ourselves. Epiphanies are good!

      This is the real meaning of actual strength. Ego is a liar, and a cheap replacement for real confidence. Welcome to the journey. #LiveLaughLoveLearnGrowAndAuthenticHappiness

    • @Jerry Zogler What are you doing here then?

    • I call it the Gifts from Covid. Respecting the covid while gaining from the experience.

    Clearly, the irony of this being said on CNN is lost on everyone, including this person.

    In other words, introverts are soon going to be forced back into the world of constant stress and activation, and be expected to like it.

    Learned Helplessness
    Stockholm syndrome

  18. January 1st, 2020: Alright, I’m finally gonna go outside and get a girlfriend
    Lockdown: No you won’t
    January 1st, 2021: Alright, I’m finally gonna get my parents to stop watching CNN
