Hi guys,

Would like to know your opinions regarding this,

"A survey conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics into the household impact of Covid-19 also reveals that the recent Victorian outbreak led to a surge in psychological distress with almost a third of people in the state reporting feelings associated with depression and anxiety compared with 18% in the rest of Australia"

How you guys feeling now? I'm literally stressed and with great fear of this pandemic. At nights, I'm having panic attacks and I refuse most of the time to go out and interact with others. How do you face this kind of anxiety?

You're having anxiety because due to fear of the covaids (which has been proven in a court of law not to exist - see Alberta)...

Or because of The Expletives and their darstedly plans/mandates?

I'm pretty troubled by the latter... but it's not gonna stop.

All you can do is take steps to swerve it/mitigate the effects on your life, and laugh at normies.

I don't know whether the thread is a joke or not but for me the problem is real. I have serious mental issues. Obviously I do not fear the virus itself but everything else.

I feel somewhat depressed because of the coming "prison planet" lifestyle and the fact that I can not do anything against that.

My biggest issue is that I can not do my work normally because I am so obsessed with Covid related news and things. I am totally without motivation to work. Things start to pile up so that it is even more depressing. I am thinking of going off work for a year or indefinite time. Because I don't see the path to being functional in the work domain in the near future. Luckily I could finance that but still I fear to become jobless in these dangerous times.

I would also need a few months without Internet and computers but that is not possible because I work on computers. And thus the temptation is always there and I can not get rid of my obsessions. I literally read and listen news the whole day and I can not stop doing that.

Get off the Internet, go get a hard workout in, go to church, go spend time with your friends and family and when you do don’t bring this crap up.

Stop investing yourself into people and strangers who have a vested interest in convincing you the sky is falling.

You’re a man, women and children have the luxury of being weak you don’t. Look within yourself and find your pride and strength as a man. If you keep going this way it will only get worse for you.

They are trying to wear us down mentally and emotionally. The psychological warfare being used against us is unprecedented in history.

I don’t mean to belittle the fact that you are suffering, as well as others who are facing similar trials during this time of madness, even unto death.
As a brother in Christ, however, I encourage you to return to the faith of our fathers, the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. (Jude 3)
The faith that allowed James, who was later martyred by Herod, to write: “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” (James 1:2-4)
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. (James 5:13-14)
Finally, the words of Paul the Apostle, who was later martyred by Nero, written to Timothy as a reminder for all of us during this uncertain time: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Timothy 1:7)
So Come, and Welcome to Jesus Christ...

I was pretty miserable in mid-2019 before all this, but strangely enough, I've been thriving for the past year and a half right around the time Covid started. It's all about your mindset.

I dropped out of the workforce last winter and I've been using this time to reflect, detach, and focus on my health, and it was absolutely worth it for me. I'm not sure if you have the luxury to make such a decision, but it's something to consider.

I would also suggest finding a life philosophy to adopt, I have found Stoicism, Zen Buddhism, and Taoism to be helpful in their own ways and I am very content, mentally stable, and well-adjusted considering what little I have in my life right now. Don't take life so seriously, stay away from the news, delete your social media, and try to simplify your life a bit.

When I feel this way, I think of the short story Bartleby, The Scrivener by Melville. It brings me peace. I think of him saying "I would prefer not to" and it calms my nerves. I don't know why. It just does.

And I’ll add a gem from Kurt Vonnegut that may be of help in these troubled times...
“So it goes”

I've had little if any anxiety or fear from the start of Covid, I think of 2 Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.". We need to keep a rational mine not react out of fear, or anger, but use the power granted to us to stand up to evil.

Good to start this topic. Our mental health is a core importance. As I've stated before we must not forget that this is a marathon, not a sprint. This will last for the rest of our lives, hence we must pace our energy and be tactical/strategic where we spend our energy on. With regard to the latter, you mean you're scared to talk about the cojona truth/to speak out against the measures? Or you're scared of the pandemic? If the latter is the case and you're not trolling check out some topics here and your fear will evaporate pretty quickly.

See what I write above. This is a phase you go through. When I started in PUA 5 years ago I experienced cognitive dissonance/the feeling of brain surgery every day for 3.5 years. Then the cojona hoax started and I dove in there, followed by the God truth. That took me at least a year from the start to find some inner peace. It is utterly normal to feel wasted, depressed, fearful, panicking etc when you get into this but it should evaporate after some time. It's like a habit where you start lifting weights it sucks at the starts, after some time you get used to it. It's the same here, give yourself some time and if you haven't taken the final step towards God that's the only place you'll find real solace, hope and peace amid the turbulence. Without that being a secular red piller you will burn out/fold, maybe after a month, maybe after a year, doesn't matter but you won't make it to the finish line. Plenty of good stuff in this forum to inform you about that side of the coin.

Love it! Indeed do other stuff. Especially turn MSM off for their goal is to keep you in fear/panic and also confusement/distraction all the time. Oh cojona cases go up, oh they go down, oh lockdown, oh no lockdown. It's a smokescreen, making you insane by changing the narrative every time. It's a psychological terror attack. Be aware of that. That all being said, it won't help either if you ignore what's going on shrug it off and pretend like it's all like it was. That's a form of delusion too, but once you get the big picture that cojona is a long planned scam to restructure the world into a control grid that controls every aspect of the lives of every inhabitant on this planet, with an openly/subconciouscly Satanic elite that hates people and everything good as it is of God and the vaccine is a poison that will have likely deliberate health consequences that regardless of the consequences you must not take, you pretty much get the helicopter view. From there take it a bit more easy, you don't need to know every lockdown that's occuring. Glance through this forum, follow some alternative media and then continue doing as much as what you were doing before, focusing on growing your body, spirit and social life with local networks.

I've kind of come to terms with the prison state thing. I realise that I won't be able to travel and might even end up living on the streets. I had a really fun childhood and early adulthood. So if I end up working in the concentration camps, so be it.

I'm constantly busy reading, exercising, trying to learn Russian etc. And, luckily, I've surrounded myself with really positive people who have a similar mindset.

But I acknowledge that if I had a child, things would be different and the idea of simply going to the concentration camps to die would be distressing.

You're not going to a concentration camp brother and you're not going to end up living on the streets. Come on, I know we all hate the situation right now but resigning yourself to such an extreme fate is not healthy and you should not be living your life with these things in your mind.

I find that high quality reading helps, and absolutely avoiding television. Re-reading Epictetus' Enchiridion or Discourses is especially helpful to me as a reminder of the source of all forms of anxiety and to how deal with it properly. I find it very calming, even in the face of the worst of my fears. If you have never read anything by Epictetus, the Enchiridion is a great, very approachable choice. There is an excellent version on Audible (together with Discourses), translation by Thomas Higginson, that I like a lot... if you're more into audiobooks. Narration by Hayward Morse.

Besides what i already said Dr. Frankie Feelgood has a fool proof cure for you…..let me write you a script…..

Call your family up, or your friends or your relatives whichever works best for you….heck call all of them. Tell them you miss them and you’re cooking tonight. Go buy the best cuts of meat you can find with some organic veggies or whatever else and make your absolute favorite giant meal from scratch and have them over to eat or take all the stuff to their house and cook with them. If the copay is too high get the generic version it works just fine, get a massive tray of food from your favorite restaurant. Get some good wine, scotch or beers whatever they enjoy. Say a prayer before dinner and then stuff your face with some amazing food and have some drinks with them, yuck it up and enjoy yourselves.

I promise by the time you’re done with the medication you’ll be as right as rain.
