    Anybody else feel like they have Stockholm syndrome or something?

    I feel like I’ve forgotten how to socialise.

    I also had a baby during lockdown and ivy got no idea how to have a social life and a baby. Seems kind of daunting.

    I can’t even figure out what to do with restrictions lifting!

    I’m like a mole person squinting her eyes as she sees the sun for the first time or something 🤣

    It’s hard enough emerging after having a baby anyway! I’m regional so it was very weird when I was out at breakfast at a cafe. And taking my mask off to eat in public feels dirty and wrong .

    no definitely not alone. i’ve been having these feelings since restrictions started easing. like don’t get me wrong, i’m glad for it and it’s way overdue, but at the same time, it all suddenly feels really overwhelming and just a lot to process. people i know are planning to clamour to the local huge shopping centre, there’ll be massive queues etc, i can’t think of anything worse.

    i don’t think there’s anything wrong with taking baby steps and feeling your way. i can only imagine how much more amplified these feelings must be given you’ve had a baby too. trust your gut and go with how you feel. we will all get there so don’t force it. if you don’t feel like socializing, it’s fine to say no and tell people you need time to acclimatize. i had the same thoughts re stockholm syndrome myself a few weeks ago. it’s a really weird feeling.

    i’m already freaking out seeing the posts, people booking meals out, putting their cleaners back on etc. i feel a sense of pressure to rush out and do the same, and yet, i feel the need to pause a bit. i guess everyone copes differently.

    Oh my god the thought of going out to dinner just seems sooooo foreign. I couldn’t even imagine.

    Having said that, I have locked in a PT session already 🤣 . I can’t do exercise on my own. I’ve always needed classes or a trainer to motivate me. Looking forward to that.

    And agree. I think I’ll just have to ease back into things slowly. For 7 months I’ve basically just made my life fit around my little one. Figuring out how to fit in a social life around naps, feeds etc seems hard! Think I’ll need to take baby steps (pardon the pun)

    I think that's to be expected.

    I'm regional, and we still haven't eaten out. The thought terrifies me beyond belief and we have been somewhat unaffected here. Especially in comparison to metro, then let alone having had a baby!

    Take your time, it'll all be waiting

    I’m in Sydney so haven’t been in strict lockdown since May and still avoid going to the shops unless I really need to, and have only eaten out in cafes when we were away for a few days last month. Otherwise I mostly stick to socializing in small groups at peoples houses. Despite our very low numbers, it still feels like a big risk every time I see people. I won’t go to a movie theatre or sports stadium. I’m really nervous about DDs dancing concert in December but they’ve split the concert into 3 sessions so they can space everyone out. It’s still worrying, but I’m not going to have her dance with no one there watching her. It’s just the world we live in for the near future I guess 🤷🏼‍♀️

    Default Covid-19 (Coronavirus) chat #5

    oh i’m not freaking out due to worry about covid. even when numbers were in the 700s, we went about daily life without panic. it’s more the social aspect of it, or the psychological impact of the social side. i’m an introvert so the idea of suddenly there being this pressure to “go out” feels scary.
