Let’s take it as a given that we have anxiety and worries and etc. etc. Forget all that! There are three very specific things I have noticed in myself, and am hearing from more of my friends than I would have expected.
Not like “slipped disc”, but like messed up muscles. I have never had such sore painful muscles and they just don’t seem to be going away! And I am hearing this from friends too, necks that are stiff, beds that are suddenly uncomfortable, etc. etc. I’m guessing it’s the same combo that’s making my problems happen, all day hunched over a computer, and then all night hunched over the same computer doing Zoom calls and Netflix Party and whatever social life you can have. And then on the other hand, suddenly wanting to move furniture and organize that closet and so on. Anyway, anyone here having suddenly sore muscles all the time?
I had that day or so when I couldn’t blog because looking at a computer screen was too painful, and then I went to the eye doctor and learned that I had problems with my close vision for the first time in my life. I had a co-worker who had to leave work after a half day because she couldn’t see her computer screen any more. She had an emergency eye appointment, also needed new glasses, and was warned that she needs to take screen breaks. Anyone else have similar? Sudden eye problems to the point that it hurt to look at a screen?
No idea what causes this. Overactive imagination thanks to boredom? Weird sleep patterns because you never really get out of the house? Anyway, for the past year, I have had more clear and vivid dreams than ever before in my life. A lot of them about activities I used to do and can’t any more (going to the movies, visiting my sister, etc.). How about you?
