Day 24. It sure feels like Groundhog Day, doesn't it? (Hope you're all doing ok!) Well it seems like I'm not as calm about all of this as I previously thought.
Insomnia's back in full force and with ~2hrs of sleep, I chose to not fight it this time around and had my morning coffee at 4am. So this should be an interesting day.
I think the initial calmness came from already having experience in dealing with anxiety/depression and this whole situation's exhibiting a familiar feeling, it's simply a heightened version.
Also realized that I've been keeping myself busier than usual during self-isolation and I haven't been listening to my body.
Would you look at that...we found a new coping mechanism (admittedly not the healthiest one) for this introvert who normally enjoys living alone in her cozy apartment. The more you know?
Today won't be a productive one and I'll just have to be ok with taking it easy.
