Going shopping

I just got back from town. I had to go shopping to get a few bits, it was so busy nobody was keeping two metres apart. I ended up leaving without everything I needed cause I could feel myself getting too anxious. When I’m at work I don’t really notice, I’m on a till so I only have to deal with the person in front of me, but when shopping you have to deal with everyone else around you. I don’t know if it’s because the rules are going to be slightly relaxed soon or what but it was so stressful and if people are already acting like they don’t have to socially distance what is it going to be like when it goes down to 1+ metres. I live by myself so if I need things I have to get them myself but if it’s that busy I don’t know if I can bring myself to do it

    Hey I get you. I work on the shop floor and this weekend it was very busy. Last weekend before that it wasn’t busy. Idk if cause letting more people in now or what. But all getting bit too busy

      but if you are only walking by someone you’re not going to catch corona. It’s for longer period of times I think.  It’s only when people speak and breath right in front of your face  
    But yeah it is stressful 

    What I have noticed is I keep my distance from people any way. as much as possible so it doesn’t feel much difference to me 😂. Don’t like being close to anyone. 

    Sorry I don’t have much help to offer. Tbh in my view in kinda glad it’s busy because I don’t want the high street to end and I was scared everything will end up online if people realise it’s easier but yeah company’s need supporting. So i like to think of the benefits rather only focusing tooo much on all negatives. 

    Are you usually anxious in busy places or is it because of the corona?
    if you have the strength to sustain anorexia you have the strength to overcome it

    Thanks that does help 😊. I don’t normally get that anxious in public so I think it’s more down to corona
