It took nine months but I am here. I feel it. It hits me mostly at the end of the work day that I have no where else to go but here. My cat and I have developed a velco-like relationship. And the only other person I am going to physically see is the same person I have seen every day for nine months. Honestly, we have run out of new games to play and I lose at every card game every single time. Does anyone have a rec for a card game it’s easy to cheat in?
At first in March through the summer it was easier. There were was purpose through work and we already had a pet and didn’t have to scramble to find one. There was good weather to walk safely in daylight hours outside. However, I think now it would have been easier to manage the cabin fever then versus now when we are working, mentally and emotionally exhausted, and it is freezing and dark.
I think work has made my cabin fever all the worse. Previously, when I was feeling overworked or overstressed I didn’t have to stay in it. There is no where to go, I never actually get to leave work it just is paused for a short period of time. It’s not just that I can’t leave my home but I can’t leave my work. It seems like the world is so small right now.
Anyways, I think it is going to be a hard winter. I hope you all are doing well and stay warm.
