    I’m not stressed. I’m actually quite relaxed. So I guess there’s something wrong with me.

    It’s all relative. Stephen Miller’s wife has been tested positive for Covid-19. That’s better than looking at his creepy face every morning.

      Oops. Natural order will take care of Trump and his evil administration. Angela is a strong woman and truthful

  4. Even I’m going a bit stir crazy (more than I usually am), which as an introvert, is quite puzzling. Which is why I picked up a new hobby. It helps.

    More psychologist need air time regarding this subject. Majority of Americans are not dealing with their stress

  6. This virus amplifies how the rich and the poor are affected by tragedy. The poor want help from the rich, the rich want the poor to help themselves.

    • The rich help themselves with grants. Like trillions to wall street and then billions.

    • Sounds Just Like The Democrats…That Is Why They Are Still Sitting A Home Eating Ice Cream.

    • The rich want everyone to go back to work while they are safe. As long as the money keeps coming they could care less about us little folk dying, especially the sick, old, and weak.

    • Ron Wuerch did you maybe notice you got that check in the mail or dd also did you notice the Republican Party said no more bail out money for tax payers such as yourself…….. huh did ya!?!?

    • @John Yeager None of our friends, family, coworkers or neighbors got a stimulus check.

    I feel very sad for mothers who are self supporters with young children and no income and older people who are alone and no help, I can go on we need to be compassion and care about others who need help, help your neighbors , send prayers for Drs and nurses, fire fighters, police and all the people in front lines, God Bless

    • You Can Thank These Useless Democrats For That.

    • @ Yolanda, I’m glad you posted this. It’s kind and thoughtful of you to remember others. Everyone is so stressed and many are struggling, hurting and/or scared. I wish we would all be nicer to each other. I don’t know why we can’t all put our differences aside, come together and help one another get through this. Past generations were able to during hard times. It doesn’t cost us anything to be nice to one another. Anyway, I think this was sweet of you. I hope you have a wonderful day tomorrow.

      I work with the young women you mentioned and I admire their resourcefulness and courage because I know I could not manage the responsibilities they have.

    I’m not stressed, I’ve eating my stress and gained 20 pounds over two months.

    • The reason why I gained weight is because I’ve been cooking more at home. I’m actually a good cook and the food has been excellent. Strangely, the pandemic has improved my cooking skills.

      I smoke my stress away

    • Started working out and lost over 20 pounds and I have a six pack stomach for the first time sense highschool and running 5 miles a day and never felt better in my whole life. Thanks Covid 19 !

    • @Allow me I’m working out too my goal is to be jacked at the end of this

    • Stifled Voice you’ve become a perfect victim to the virus now. It likes fat people

  10. There is a reason why they put misbehaving prisoner in isolation, it’s because it is crazy hard and about as harsh of a punishment there is. IMHO if it is not inhumane it’s dang close.

    I have a friend who is in complete denial. She is ticked off that she can’t get her hair done, socialize with friends, etc. She is angry that she has to curb her social activity. She is probably scared, and she has been expressing her fears by being angry.

    • Wendy's Garden | May 9, 2020 at 7:39 AM | Reply

      I suspect a lot of the people who are covid deniers, who think that the deaths are inflated, are also working out of fear. If the reality is 100,000 Americans have died (and they have) of it, and one million more will (and they likely will), that’s a big truth for some people to swallow. Some people are weaker and more fearful, so they deny.

    • 😷💯so very true

    Whenever I feel stressed and sorry for myself, I know there are others that are enduring far greater suffering. The situation in Ecador is terrible, the dead being left in the street. It’s just so sad, no human being deserves to be left that way.

    Absolutely. Stress now and PTSD to come. We need to file a class action lawsuit against the federal government for non action

    The outcome will be an excessive rise in all sorts of addiction diseases

    • You mean to add OCD. The carpet has gone bald from hours of vacuuming. 😵

      @Olen Paras you know what I mean
      The only sector of economy which will increase in those times is the black market and also an increasing demand for drugs

    For all extroverts: So, you think you’re having a hard time on lockdown?
    Now think of others having the same feeling in normal times.

    …The ” threat” is the orange man more than the pandemic itself….

    • Your problem is TDS since November 2016. Hahahahahahahahaha hehehehehe hahahahahahahahaha

      Our real problem is the president and all his “press releases” or what I like to call them his reelection campaign TV time, the president stresses me out, just watching or hearing about what he said each day that is what stresses me.

    No wonder her name and face are so familiar–I’ve seen/heard her before on a TED Talk.

    I actually feel relatively calm and collected riding out the storm in the comfort of my home.

    It’s when I have to take public mass-transit and report to work as an essential worker–that’s what I call stressful and anxiety-inducing.

  19. We’ve always been one catastrophe away from losing our illusions and delusions then becoming forced to deal with the underlying reality,..we’re all only human.

    Trump and his corrupt administration are all guilty of GENOCIDE.
