Fully Vaccinated but Anxious About a Return to Normal Life? You May Have ‘Cave Syndrome’

After more than a year of sealing themselves off at home, some people are finding social activities difficult.

'Cave syndrome' is keeping some vaccinated people from resuming their pre-Covid-19 lives. The Delta variant isn't helping.

After more than a year of sealing themselves off at home, some people are finding social activities difficult.

For much of theCovid-19 pandemic, Laura G. Bustamante longed for the weekend nights when she used to drive into Manhattan to meet friends, often at karaoke bars in the Koreatown neighborhood.She’s now fully vaccinated, and many New York City bars and restaurants have reopened. Yet Ms. Bustamante says she doesn’t feel ready to return to her pre-pandemic jaunts to the city, and she is only comfortable meeting friends there one-on-one, preferably outdoors.

“You look at social media, and you see some people out there having all that fun,” says the 49-year-old product-management consultant in suburban Rockland County, N.Y. “I can’t picture myself in that picture.”Ever since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave

the all-clear for vaccinated peopleto gather indoors without masks and resume pre-pandemic activities, many have eagerly returned to dining inside restaurants, attending parties and flying to see friends and family. (And plenty of people already were doing so before.) Yet for others, returning to their former lives—and much of the outside world—is proving tough after more than a year of relative isolation. headtopics.com

Met Gala Photos 2021: Red Carpet Arrivals

The Met Gala makes its dazzling return, offering a landscape of lavish red carpet looks we’ve come to expect on one of fashion’s biggest nights. Co-chairs of the evening are Timothée Ch…

During the peak wild fires season, many stayed inside to avoid the smoke. Are they mentally sick? Those weirdos. More at 11 So you are saying that vaccines are 100% effective and we should not be worried about exposure. What planet are you from? Have you been following what happened in CA after the reopening? Maybe the commercial real estate lobby has paid you for this story or not?

Yes, it's all a matter of psychological issues and maladaptive tendencies, right? ...Right?! Anyone who is still not leaving their house has lost their minds by now Caveman syndrome It’s called watching too much news syndrome. Cave syndrome? Lol. More a normal and justified reaction to a potential dangerous environment. Wise.

Social activity is really a key to mental health, even the soft-skill in business, it goes down when one stops dealing with people face to face. VACCINATION IS FIRST AT THIS TIME FOR BEAUTIFUL LIFE- ...IMO, i only learned to be human after living an a region outside of intense industrial activity, ...working in farm trade...

Canada’s Border To Open August 9 To Fully Vaccinated American TravelersSave the date. More than 16 months after closing to non-essential travel, the longest border in the world will reopen to vaxxed U.S. residents. hello you so c00l :) 552288

Poor babies. Reality is so hard. People wouldn't be so nervous if leaders like GOPLeader , Jim_Jordan , or GovRonDeSantis for instance, would stop with the anti-mask and anti-vaccine rhetoric. Common sense says getting vaccinated is each American's duty to stop the spread of Covid. Why aren't they on board?

Yes and I'm one of them! have you read anything about the power of this Delta or Indian variant - people have every reason to show a little caution. The slave underclass is conditioned properly now. Awwww, poor bubbies... Fair dinkum, do people actually look for new things to stress about? Is one of the side affects of the virus depleted resilience? More likely they've discovered the joys of seclusion from a world full of idiots and are sticking with it.

Stop stirring the pot instead of helping all of us get through this. Seriously! ITS OVER! Wake up! Why the hell would you be nervous going back to normal life if you are vaccinated? Is that because people who are vaccinated are still getting sick? Hmm... most biased journal, don't follow them.... Useless.

What you should do if you or someone you know is fully vaccinated but tests positive for Covid anywayBreakthrough infections, though rare, can happen with Covid. Here's what to do if you or someone you know is fully vaccinated but tests positive.

The soup that doesn't steam might be hotter. What do you think is gonna happen when locked in a prison in your own home. Mask, No Mask, Mask again. We cured the common cold and flu from what it sounds like America. Everyone test positive for COVID. Everyone! What are the odds? and I love being not be around people lol

This one somehow managed to not age well, despite being only a week old. Me ... i don't want to be around people in Alberta. Would help if people would stop listening to fear mongering MSM What's the risk for a vaccinated person compared to driving more than 55 mph? Funny how everyone is happy to live with the speed risk.

Well peep rayalexsmith the dude who wrote this is a complete statist, probably fears his own shadow I don't feel safe indoors without a mask. Due to anti-vaxxers I am finding this extremely difficult

I assume some have turned into couch potatoes. Took me sometime but I watch where I go and my contacts. Mostly be near those vaccinated when I can. I announce my status when near others inside. Got to figure people under 40 are just like 20% vaccinated. And, under 12 aren't either. They have a reason to be finding it hard o go out. Morons who follow the and are not vaccinated, and variants caused by said morons will be worse than Delta.

I am fine staying home reading books and watching Netflix most of the time at this point. It beats worrying about getting sick from a nasty covid variant (even though vaccinated I am still at SOME risk of catching it). I was starting to return to normal, but now that I have friends who are vaccinated and testing positive, and Delta rampant, I'm back to masking and avoiding crowds. Last thing I want is that long-haul thing that wrecks your heart and nervous system and leaves you with brain fog.

It's almost like the Pandemic never ended no matter how much the political and capital classes wanted to claim it had. Imagine that. Monkey pox, gun violence, COVariants, Karens, crazies... plus the internet give introverts juuuuuust enough social 'interaction' to get by... lol😁😁😁 Welcome to the new normal.

People who are socially inept now were socially inept before the PANDEMIC. The PANDEMIC exacerbated short comings. Well, first of all, a crapton of people are refusing to get vaccinated, which makes those of us who are awfully suspicious of social gatherings where there's a good chance that half of the people there are an infection risk.

I didn't seal myself at home last year or this year. 🤷‍♀️

With everything going on in the world your organization actually the time and effort to publish this BS about a handful of losers who could never cope in the real world anyway. Pathetic, real journalism is dead. lol Loving the social distancing Haven't had to fake my way through a party or lunch with co-workers in over a year

“Fear is the foundation of most governments.” Covid-19 and the media have become the perfect covert operation to implement social control. Do they really think that we are ignorant of that fact! As for the ones that cannot see what's going on you need to wake up! Fully stocked with antibodies from having covid and not anxious at all about a return to normal life. Just wish the govt would recognize true science rather than push experimental product on the masses.

I am starting to feel the ex-patriate urge. Lack of overall friendliness, lack of progressive politics, and hate games played by big money and propaganda all over the place in any direction. We can barely identify our own issues before we immediately arbitrarily stalemate The author of this article seems to forget that people are still getting long covid from covid that doesn't kill you and I personally now know several vaccinated people who have been pretty sick with Covid.

It is no consequence of a pandemic. It is the consequence of an abundance of laze inducing conveniences. The people you refer to have no problem ordering very small, often perishable, items to be delivered straight to their faces. Slowly but surely! It’s you that r not helping. Delta this and delta that. The MSM sucks wind always ✅

Sean Penn Won't Return to 'Gaslit' Until Cast & Crew Are VaccinatedAccording to 'Variety,' Penn said if the cast and crew of the Starz series 'Gaslit' don't get vaccinated, he won't return to work. We dont care of this ass His choice Don't blame him

Nothing anti depressants from big pharma handed out like candies by docs can’t fix! Let’s all be happy. Except those unvaxxed.. just double their anti depressant doses! LIVE LIFE Don't allow any virus to make you a prisoner in your home Don't allow any virus or sickness to steal your joy for life I haven't changed my life in anykind of way because of the Coronavirus I take Vitamin D everyday and that keeps me healthy

Took the vaccines seems didn't change anything. Trump lost because of the covid 19, and Biden seems didn't achieve his promise. But Fauci became the hero and kept his job.The only one who took advantage from all those mess is Fauci,I really doubt whether Fauci created the virus Sorry WSJ, the cats out of the bag and we aren’t going back to working for slave wages.

Immeasurable psychological harm. We need to get people help. We also can’t let these same people handle policy, so those that want/need normal can have it. COVID19 Ridiculous. Please do continue staying home so that the rest of us are only annoyed by having to read about you. I'm thankful to have been an essential employee this whole time and had a break from sad sacks like these people.

I don’t have a syndrome. 🙄 I have common sense and I listen to science. I don’t think it’s cave syndrome. We just don’t have anything to wear due to COVID weight gain. Anti-introverts!

Piers Morgan says it's unfair Kate Garraway's husband Derek never got Covid jabThe TV personality recently revealed he had caught the deadly virus and says that being vaccinated potentially saved his life

We are devolving back into Cavemen. Some people need to put their big pants on and stop acting like scared children. Stop the excuses. How is this not just agoraphobia? Well, there does seem to be a lot of 'breakthrough' cases among the fully vaccinated. To the BAT mobile!!!! We need to this joker hahaha

Are you sure it’s not right-wing media like the WSJ encouraging ‘pro-Covid’ fanatics that is discouraging them, Rupert? The msm isn’t helping. Risk after vaccination is shockingly low. Move on with your life.

Some people arnt worth the time
