My anxiety went through the roof

At the beginning of the Pandemic Lockdown I was already depressed and suffering from anxiety & the knowledge that there was a virus out there taking lives my anxiety went through the roof. Self isolating was not really a problem for me as I more or less isolate myself because of my mental health issues. As a bipolar sufferer it is not very easy to keep up with relationships around people if you are manic or feeling low. But the fact that it was compulsory is what made me mad. My levels of paranoia went up and I had so much more traffic racing in my head that i had to self medicate for peace sake.
