Aren’t there AA meetings on-line or through Face-Time?

Have the same compassion for yourself as you do for others. And find a meeting! You know it will help.

I know what it is to need a meeting. I predict you’ll find them all over the internet since we’re all in the same leaky boat here.

Our schools just extended closings to may 20.  These are not minor issues, Bee.  Your mental health and sobriety are core to basic function and they are so intertwined with each other.  Can you find support groups online?  I know it’s not as good as in person.  My daughter is reaching out for online friendships, joining servers etc.  I know, she’s a kid, but she’s starved for social interaction.  She needs it or she’ll really collapse being trapped at home.  I’ve supported her extended online time for that reason.

Just because people are dying doesn’t make this less stressful, especially with mental health challenges, to you. We are all essentially experiencing house arrest, something that is meant to be a very unpleasant deterrent in ordinary circumstances. Remind yourself that this too will pass. 

I’d suggest trying to add some schedule and structure to your days. Online workouts, AA meetings, meal prep, videochat friends and relatives, work from home if you have a job, youtube a new skill or hobby, the list goes on.  It’s just a question of time until the lockdown is extended other places as well.

Lockdown has been extended in Ireland until 5 May.

I would make an effort to do the video meetings, the structure and routine will probably help you a lot.

People are dying and if we don’t take measure to control the spread the results will be catastrophic, but that doesn’t mean it will be easy and we all just need to cut ourselves slack at this time. Sometimes you just need a pity party!
