There’s an old adage that “familiarity breeds contempt.”
That’s what many people describe when talking about the self-isolation imposed to stay safe from the COVID-19 coronavirus.
“They’re sheltering in place and getting on each other’s nerves because they’re not used to being together so much,” said Cathy Schueler, executive director of Bosque Mental Health.
“Those who can work from home seem to be having an easier time of it than those who lost their jobs and are now feeling the financial pinch. So they’re getting unemployment compensation, but it’s anxiety-producing and the longer this goes on, the more anxious people get,” she said.
