I am and can't leave it. My articles are doing well because there is so much to write about. Inside though, it's killing me to be inside the house, my head, my writing and worried about the virus.

I'm fine, I'm working from home in an administrative consultant position with a very large healthcare provider.

get out of the house and do something R2, see people, hit a ball of some kind

R2 - I need it but weird thing about being indoors all say 5 days a week is you start getting tired easily. I guess despite the fact that I enjoyed alone time before, I never realized how much energy one derives from being out and about at work, cafes, the gym. I have to start again because by thr weekend I sleep all day and I never napped before. Probably do a vitamin panel too.

Which is why I made the second-to-last poll option.

I complain like a bitch and then see posters like R7 and I can't believe how lucky I am, how I need to stop whining and how shitty our country really can be to make so many people lose their jobs.
My roommate was saying, when two of her accountant friends lost their jobs and she reads the stats on unemployment, loss of insurance, sky high medical costs and the lack of savings and high debt many Americans face, that the US is having that Dorothy in OZ moment when, after being dazzled by the colors and facade of America, you suddenly lift the curtain and see the illusion fades.
Here in Romania most are taught to think that ALL Americans have it made...a country of JFK's and limitless wealth with all those homes so much prettier than the communist buildings. Now, with Trump and the kind of people who came out from under a rock at his rallies, the lootings, and the daily news about people losing health insurance and jobs, they always ask "how is this possible in America?"

I am fortunate to have a full-time job and am able to telework.

R10 - but how do you cope so many hours in the house?
|by Anonymous||reply 11||07/30/2020|
r8 Retired people don't consider themselves "unemployed."

With telework, you aren't tied to an office desk or cubicle. I switch rooms in the house regularly, work on the porch or anywhere in range of my wifi. I take regular breaks to get up, move around, get lunch, some water or tea. A walk in the morning and errands in the afternoon gets me out as well.
I am an introvert, but definitely not housebound.

I don't know about DL'ers, but there are about 30 million people in the US who are unemployed and receiving unemployment benefits.

Yes. I work for a state court - very low risk of job loss, thankfully. But, I'll probably never see a raise before I retire - once all this really hits state and local governments. Have been working from home since March 15; tentatively scheduled to go back to the office part-time on August 24 - basically half staff every other day.

OP, you realize that Dataloungers all have 2 homes and a maid and 2.5 million in their IRA accounts that they always brag about on here.

I'm safe (work in a grocery store), but my husband was laid off from his job as a writer/editor.
