This essay Kat Timpf: Why coronavirus 'new normal' will never feel 'normal' to me. contains reassurance for all of us. It's not political. It addresses the social, emotional, and medical effects of isolation. The subtitle "This will never, ever seem normal to us, because we’re biologically programmed to never feel like it is." precedes an interesting clinical discussion on isolation. Her point is just that the "new normal" shouldn't feel normal. If it doesn't feel normal, you are actually quite "normal". Don't feel like you're failing somehow if it doesn't eventually feel right. You might worry if it ever does!
