I feel stuck, lonely, and scared.

Wow Ashley thatís a lot to deal with. Iím sorry youíre going through that.

When I went through my break up I had to be gentle to get through the day/week/month... minute.

It helped a lot to talk it out with people. Iím glad youíre here and sharing it with us. Please keep us posted. We are here for it.

Much love! You got this!!

It is a lot of work to get through the minutes sometimes. Not having some of the normal ways to cope with a breakup (getting a hug from somebody who cares, seeing friends) is really difficult. And then again I also don't have the option of coping in some of the unhealthy ways I used to (going to bars, meeting unhealthy Tinder people). In the meantime, I'm looking for a place to move that I love.

Talking helps. Thank you, Chemda.

We are in Italy.
I booked the trip before the outbreak and thought often about canceling.
It’s considered very safe here and the case load is very low, about 250 new cases a day. The official statement from our government was that’s its safe to go.
We are in a village close to the Como lake, arrived today. It’s pretty remote, very nature centric.
It’s an apartment and we don’t have contact with anyone but us four. I brought my own pillows and blankets and towels and even a blow up bed.
Still it’s a little bit strange.

I think he lost interest in me romantically. He's not very romantic to begin with, but he admittedly stopped putting in the effort he used to. He was pulling away when I needed him, and I pulled away when he needed me. We love each other a lot, but it's not enough. Our lease ending gave us an out.

This wasn't one of those "mutual" breakups where both people magically say they want to break up at exactly the same time. He said it first, and I couldn't disagree with his reasoning.

she’s gone. it happened right after the vent was removed yesterday, but the hospital waited until this morning to inform the family. they left all of them waiting all goddamn night in agony.

preaching to the choir a little bit, but if you don’t take this seriously you can literally kill someone. every time you go out without a mask you risk wrecking entire families. don’t be stupid. don’t be fucking cavalier.

rituals exist to give us something to hold onto. this pandemic has interrupted those we reserve for death; arguably the most important ones. we’re all feeling lost.
