    Hi guys,
    I need your help. Unfortunately I'm in a strange situation: I haven't reached flatline yet... but lately I feel like I was flatlined: I'm deconcentrated and not motivated in anything (studying, physical activity, reading and other things); I'm getting more and more irritable and I keep fighting every minute of my days with sexual thoughts.
    My days are reduced to checking my situation on a mobile phone app and taking the dog out. Otherwise I spend all my time watching videos on youtube and listening to music.
    I've been abstaining from porn and masturbation for just over a month now, so I could expect symptoms like that, but I thought they would happen during a flatline and my libido is still active.
    Do you have any advice to give me? I wanna get out of this situation.

    Staying isolated will make it more difficult to probably get out of the house for a walk. Are you allowed to leave the house where you live?

    Hi Arbiter007,
    unfortunately I'm not allowed to leave my house. Where I live (Italy) the government has blocked everything and forbidden all citizens to leave home outside of urgent reasons (work, health, food supply and nothing else).
    In fact, at the beginning of March, I had planned three new activities to facilitate rebooting: joining a theatre company, renewing my gym membership (I can't exercise at home because I don't have enough space) and helping my friends to organize conferences focused on the environment and pollution.
    With the arrival of the Covid-19 all my plans had blown up and now I find myself completely isolated at home.
    At the beginning I had no problems, also because I felt very motivated to study (I'm a university student), but for about a week now I've lost the will to study too and I can't do anything anymore.

    Do you have enough space at home to do push ups? There is a push up thread here on this forum.

    Do you live with others like family or friends?

    Yeah, I have a little space in my room where I can do push-ups.

    I live with my family, my mom and my dad.

    That's awesome. You could make it a goal to keep all your electronics in visible spaces. Have them charging out in the open.

    And you could join the thread for counting push-ups. Doing push-ups is an awesome exercise you can do anywhere pretty much.
