I've been surprisingly calm. I'm lucky to be in a job where I am easily able to work from home without any hassle. I actually find more comfort in this. Less money spent on trains, don't have to get up as early, more free time due to lack of commute, and I feel much more comfortable in my own home than I do in an open plan office surrounded by people for reasons anyone on the spectrum will surely understand.I am curious how other autistic members are doing with this coronavirus situation.
Me, my daily routine is little changed. Most of my days are spent alone anyway with only online interaction. I stocked up my pantry early, and will work with what I have. I have no interest in raising my risk profile because I'm out of bread. (Actually, I put a couple bags of tortillas in the freezer, and when they run out, I have masa and a tortilla press.)
I did get some time in this week working outside in the garden. Doing something physical was a really good idea.
I also find myself irritated at the people locally who continue to ignore -- and I mean ignore -- social distancing guidelines. To my way of thinking, their behavior means I'll be cooped up even longer. Today is Friday, which means the grandkids come over for the afternoon and dinner. Nope, we'll be Facetiming.
I do wish I could go and hang out with my mates like normal though. I'm not totally anti-social and I feel the loneliness. Probably less than NTs but still. I do want to spend time with people when I'm in a social mood.
And video calls give me more anxiety than just meeting people face to face in all honesty.
At least I am trying to make the best of the situation by sinking myself into the stock market situation. Perfect aspie shit it's all data and logic. Perfect time to invest if you're clever about it. Big tech companies in particular will come out the other end of this just fine. Their stock is currently very undervalued, broadly speaking.
