Coronavirus has Ruined my Life

Recommended Posts

I don't have any friends, and I've never been in a relationship (I'm in my 20's). I originally had plans to start working on those things. I lost my virginity to an escort a while back, because I thought it would help my confidence. But guess what? Coronavirus. Now, because I still live with my mother, I can't go out and do anything. I can't even get the brief satisfaction of an escort because I'll probably contract the virus, bring it home to my mom, and **** her. I'm never going to have sex again, or do things like go to the movies or go to a comic con. This virus is never going away. I don't even have suicide as a way out because my mom guilts me into staying alive.

I am so very, very sorry you are suffering.   I wish I knew what to say that would help.  The SARS-COvid-19 virus is causing me a lot of distress too.  I sure hope things improve for you.  It is so heartbreaking that you are suffering!

I dont think this is true. Throughout history pandemics have come and gone. They don't tend to last forever. I could be wrong I suppose but I don't think we have any evidence that it is going to last forever although it does feel like that sometimes :hugs:

It might never be gone.  There are many sicknesses that don't go away like the flu that comes every year.  We realize we just have to live life anyway.

So you're saying I should give up and accept my life is over?

No not in a million years.  We all get our lives back when we take our lives back.  We have to move on and go and live our lives.  We can live our lives like my best friends the cows and accept our fate and stay inside the fence or knock it down and do what we want to do.  If you're worried about your mom move out.  Of course your life isn't over.  It's just beginning.

It's such a surreal time right now. COVID won't be here forever but I'm more worried about the after effects than the virus itself. I'm from the UK and I'm disgusted by the way our government have handled the situation. Likewise with Trump. Over here we've had a decade of our government basically just trampling on living standards for the masses while rewarding the mega rich. Homelessness and poverty went through the roof before this, and all this pandemic has been to them is an excuse to extend their priorities. Course, for some, anxiety comes with a tendency to catastrophise and depression comes with a tendency to cloud judgment. Right now, from where I'm sitting, I just can't see life getting any better. But there have been plenty of things I couldn't see at times too. Thought I'd never find a job, thought I'd never find someone, this bad thing would happen, that good thing would never happen etc. But we don't know, and sometimes it's great to be wrong. May take a while, but to look back and laugh and think what the hell was I thinking? - what a comfort that is.

I think this is the biggest reason people long for the 'good old days'.  No matter how bad a past situation was, when looking back at it, we at least know how it turned out.  That is not true about whatever is going on 'now'.  We do not know how (or if) the 'now' situation will work out.  That really feeds anxiety.

To fearispower

I can understand your anxiety, but being in your 20s you have many more years of opportunities left than many of us.

I'm in my 60s and feel this virus is stealing a big part of the much shorter period of time that remains for me.

I also have very few social contacts. I have been getting out (as safely as possible, masked indoors of course) and have found a surprising number of people interested in chatting (e.g. on walks, store lineups). Sharing experiences and feelings can be therapeutic. Many people, especially elderly, feel isolated and lonely now.

I feel a vaccine should bring us back to an acceptable level of 'normal' in 2021. Hang in there. You're not the only one distressed by the current state of affairs.

I hope you're managing. I'm sorry I got to this thread so late.

Unless the p(l)andemic is a project made to destroy us, especially the sick and the poor then...

It will for the most part be gone through the vaccines next year. Every pandemic lasts for a long time. Even when the vaccine is there, more than one dose is required. But once it is ready, people will get back to work, pretty much everything will be open again. Only the distancing and masks will remain for 2-3 years.  (I have read about it) But IMO this winter and part of the spring will be the hardest. Then they will vaccine the elderly, health care workers and eventually everyone else. I don't know what is going to happen about those who reject the vaccine.

To OP. I am affected by this as well. I made a thread about it. But imagine you went to jail for 2-3 years. That would be worse. You are still young. It is us older people who are literally wasting our time.

But if it is a project then God help us.

This is really not helpful. You're entitled to whatever belief you hold true, I don't think spreading fear us helpful here. Please consider where you are and who the audience is here.

Everything changes. Hang in there. Thoughts like "never" and "forever"-- those are really long times, and while it does seem like forever since we've felt in control, we will come out on the other side of this.

No such intention. But people write what they think. On my "covid" thread some have added to my fears so what can I do? Complain to the mods if you want.
