  2. This is not working. How to deal with stress, when you are far from your family, your partner? You feel lonely, because of remote job, remote friends, remote partner, remote family. I do not care about illnesses, my body won more dangerous things and covid twice, so I trust that the third time everything also will be okay. My mental health is down, I want to know, how to deal with it.

  3. I have a Grandmother I live with who is in her 80s. I also have several other relatives that live here, and they don't take precautions enough imo. So it's been extremely stressful. For a year, I managed to not catch anything. Then they got sick, and I went and got tested. Just when I thought all was well, another relative showed up sick again, and they think that because of being vaccinated, they aren't contagious. They also thought that because the doctor told them it was normal for some people to have side effects, that her symptoms were normal, but a cough isn't normal I found out. But they won't take anything I try to tell them seriously. So now I am worried. Thank goodness I haven't been around them, but the problem is that they will come around soon. And two people won't wear a mask. So I feel scared because I don't want to catch anything and my Grandmother to catch anything either. So stressful. I also have a daughter so I am worried. Wish I knew what to do. I want to go somewhere, where me and my daughter can relax and not hide out because we have to be able to function. But I am afraid if I move around too much in the next week, we could catch it. I wouldn't be so worried if my Grandmother wasn't vulnerable, but she is, so me and my daughter have been super careful about not being around her. It's putting me under so much stress I want to cry.

  4. 😷😷😷 India is seriously under covid attack, now ! Indians have to face with its consequence as well include : stressors, trauma, PTSD, complicated grief, melancholic depression, hopelessness, jobless, poverty, suicidal thoughts, etc.
    WHO & WPA should give india definite supports to fight these worsen crisis as soon as possible. Indian public mental health is at risk and under covid attack from day to day.
