So, I've been working at a "temporary" covid testing site since mid March. I'm part of the ambulatory float pool (basically a fill-in nurse for the outpatient clinics) and when covid hit, all the clinics shut down in my area. This made our group the obvious choice to staff our testing sites for our companies. The hours and days have slowly dwindled down to two or three per week and half days. The other half of the days, we leave the outdoor (and exceptionally hot) testing sites, eat lunch, change into scrubs and cover for the clinics too. While it's nice to have a change of scenery, the stress of making it to the clinics on time and feeling disgusting no matter how many baby wipes we use, is getting to me. We aren't really getting any guidance on how long this will be going on because no one knows. We keep hearing we may open the sites back up full time if there is a Fall surge. We hear it's gonna be the end of the year before we close the sites, they're gonna stay open through flu season, etc. I think my biggest stressor right now is the unknown. My husband was in the military and I'm no stranger to this feeling of limbo but it's always made me extremely anxious and I started meds during that time (eventually going off of them when he got out). I know that's got to be part of it. The other part is of course just dealing with the pandemic as a human being. I'm having a lot of guilt any time I leave the house. We obviously mask but it doesn't change that guilty feeling of "you should be at home". Especially if we let the kids come out with us (very rare). I know I'm all over the place but I just want to know. Is this a normal stress reaction to all of these emotions or should I seek out some help with a provider? If I'm home, I'm OK but as soon as I have to leave the anxiety hits and it's affecting me now. TL;Dr: my anxiety has kicked back up, should I see a doc or is it a normal stress reaction?
