At Twickenham Counselling I also offer online counselling. At the moment, our world really is on the brink. You are not imagining it and you can choose how you respond in a crisis. By getting things into proportion. So you may want to find a therapist to offer online counselling to help you.
You could be plagued with erratic emotions, monitoring for symptoms of illness, or racing thoughts. As you yo-yo from panic states, to feeling disconnected, your thoughts become more obsessive. And you notice how impulsive you become.
You are not alone. Whatever family and friends may say and however calm they look, most people are going through their own anxieties, or panic . They may be better at disguising their feelings, but they feel it too. While others are more equipped to cope.
This is normal reaction to a crisis. Many people are suffering. The country is in lockdown and there is real hardship.
Most people are in survival mode. Some of us will lose loved ones or witness someone who is suffering. We may even go through the trauma of contracting the virus ourselves. And this can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with prolonged exposure.
