The Coronavirus and Depression. I hope everyone take the time to read this.

I hope everyone take the time out to read this. The Coronavirus and Depression isn’t a pleasant topic but a necessary one. The Coronavirus is causing a historic rise in mental health problems. Suicide rates have been rising in the US in the past two decades. The highest rate reported since 1941. We don’t know the full impact of it on the mental health agenda yet but that shouldn’t keep us from looking out for those wavering under stress. There are so many factors abound today that can easily push one over the edge.

Just today: New coronavirus cases across the world jump by the most ever in a single day, WHO says. That isn’t good news.

I’ve heard of some trying to use this virus as a way to commit suicide. Is it true? I don’t know. I’m not a psychiatrist nor a mental health professional. But we should all bear in mind that  suicidal people will use anything available.

Depression and the Coronavirus is creating a perfect storm due to depressions is one of the symptoms in some people. Some reported experiencing depression with the Coronavirus infection. Some infected people talks about suffering a deep black hole depression instead of the traditional fever, shortness of breath, and rash associated with the virus.

If anyone’s saying things like:

“I hope this virus take me.”
“If I die, then I die.”
“If it’s my time to go then, I guess I’ll catch it and die.”

“So what if I’m not wearing a mask. Everyone is going to die some day.”

Don’t dismiss it as their behavior as just being careless. They may be depressed. Keep a watch on them. They may not be suffering from normal depression. Seek professional help for them for they may not be able to seek it for themselves.  If it’s turns out they are just a jerk who think they’re invincible, then that’s ok too. At least they are alive. It’s much better safe than something happen to them.

We can’t be too careful for this monster has so many different faces and symptoms that we never know which is going to rear it’s head.

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Thankful for this post. I realized how much this pandemic has impacted my mental health. I started planning weekend retreats in airbnb’s to stay safe and to have a place to get away. In the beginning staying home was good but then it became too much. I am in therapy, joined on line work out groups, and I go outside for a walk even when it’s cold. These things have helped.
