Ive noticed this one this pandemic too due to home quarantine. It feels like it worsen during these times since I am most likely alone in the room. It just feels different when we are outside dealing with people, we tend to forget our worries.
Yes absolutely, I will be fine all day but as soon as I’m home and can relax my brain says NOPE think again buddy.
Yes, actually I do labor and quite a bit of driving for work, so like while I’m working with labor I’m kinda distracted but when I’m driving for a while like more than 30 minutes I start obsessing
It actually makes perfect sense! When you are out, you are "distracted" in an absolutely positive way, by your friends, environment, experiences; etc! But when you are home; you are like in a "zone without stimulations" so you have a lot of time to think, to check, to ruminate etc! You have less exciting thing to do! Try to find something that really excite you/ that you really enjoy that can you do when you are at hotel! It can be an hobby, like reading, painting, dancing etc and whenever you feel like you are thinking too much; you start doing that thing! :)
Yes, especially since I have ROCD and my husband is a trigger. It is worse though when I am alone at home.
