I took a 2 year sabbatical from OnlineGriefSupport.

The CoronaVirus has been weighing heavy on my 

mind.  I want to be of service and help all those I can.  Let's talk.  How has this virus affected you?  I'm here for all of you.

Yes, it's making everyone anxious.  I'm glad you are only in contact with your friends via phone or video calls.  Stay safe.

I'm really sorry to hear that.  And yes, I believe PTSD will be a result of this virus.  And to be honest, a person really needs a therapist that specializes in PTSD because PTSD is complex to say the least.  I had 2 family members with PTSD - hard to watch what they go through.  

 So, you live in the UK.  What part?

Hello Diana.  I don't know if I've ever thanked you for starting this website, but thank you, both for starting it and for continuing/maintaining it.

This Coronavirus situation is insane.  Globally, in terms of how many people are getting sick, and how many are dying.  Nationally, in the U.S., due to the utterly incompetent narcissist in the White House not giving a damn about anyone other than himself, and not taking the necessary steps to protect people in this country (not to mention that horrifically sorry state of U.S. healthcare -- not the doctors and nurses, but the system itself).  

I find myself terrified of catching coronavirus, as well as terrified of passing it to my family members if I were to get it (my sister has asthma, though she rarely has any occurrence of it anymore, and my mother is somewhat immunocompromised).  At the same time, I have wanted to die ever since my husband died, so I feel pulled in two directions.  Mostly, worrying about all of this has really kicked my panic disorder into higher gear, whereas I had it largely under control for a good few years prior to my husband's death, and barely felt anxiety/panic at all after his death (which I have always attributed to depersonalization, lack of affect, and there being no damn point to panic because the worst thing had already happened).

Anyway, I don't know if that's the sort of response for which you were looking, but that's how it is for me these days.

Thank you! You are very welcome.  It's very good to hear from you.  

Yes, I agree about the coronavirus.  Crazy times!  Yes, I am doing my best not to catch this virus. I am a thinker and boy do I think and study about this virus.  I have a history of panic disorder as well.  I too have kept my anxiety at bay in the past, so I am feeling some anxiety as well.  

I'm glad you shared that with me.  Let's keep in touch!  I will continue to visit this site.  I'm glad to see it's still up and running.

My Story

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35.  I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip.  I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children.  It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More

My Story

When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home.  I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't.  It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today.  As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
