Some states are mandating that everyone wear a mask in public so as to prevent infecting others, just in case you yourself are infected. Rumor is that's going to happen nation-wide soon.
I find myself more stressed, in part because Im in the at risk group if I catch it. But also because I just get so frustrated with people panic buying all the supplies that just going out at all is more stressful than usualI don't know if anyone feels the same but I have felt less socially anxious recently when going out because I have an excuse to wear mask to cover my face and also the streets are emptier than before. I also do not feel as bad staying at home too much as before because everyone else is doing the same. Not that I want this to last forever, I wish it would go back the old way too but I feel like it can be some kind of blessing in disguise for people with social anxiety? What do you think?
