Hello Flaminglady, yes, we do love you, especially for having the strength to join the forums, it's very much appreciated and know that this time has been a period none of us had ever expected and the longer it goes on the more frustrated we will begin.
The promises made by our government have not been satisfactory and if they have tried, it's so confusing and the rules don't 'add up', meaning what we are allowed to do, somebody next to us isn't permitted, so we understand your position.
Being an essential worker makes you such an important person in the community, but it's so intensive you literally can't keep going on and definitely can't be expected to do all this work without a break, it's not possible, and of course, your situation needs to be considered as well as those who are suffering, because that's exactly what's happening to you.
Having a great supportive housemate is good but they too need a break, not so much from you, especially if they love you, but may be holding back their own fears, so this concerns te both of you.
I've found that psychologists are more emotionally involved with their clients, rather than my experience with psychiatrists, others may disagree and are entitled to do so, but you need to feel as though you can open up to them without any hesitation, then you will achieve exactly what you're after.
We applaud you for being an essential worker and know how hard your job must be, and hope you can get back to us.
