    I get overwhelmed. I am at my folks place holed up here. I have looked at pictures. I certainly don’t see myself acting out while I am here. The shower doesn’t even work. I did go to gym right after I dropped off my daughter at school. I have to go back tomorrow as I quit today in self disgust.

    The gym should help, how long are you at your parents place?

    Going on week 2 now. Last week. It is so much less stress without my wife.

    I am off the rails a bit. Stressed out the wife and kids are home now 24/7. My wife is totally panicking.

    Hi Nightfly,

    Stick with it. I am usually laid back, probably to the annoyance of other people, but even I am slightly edgy about this. You have specific reason to be more concerned than me but that is not justification for either of us to act out.

    Peace and every good

    Yesterday I PMO. I can have excuses (stress of being cooped up with everyone home, out of a medication that made me just want to do literally nothing). I got the med last night and feel better. I am not making promises, just one day at a time. I can’t believe the kids will be home for months. Crazy times.

    Yes it is. Everything feels like it's upside down
