    “I’m scared about what might
    happen to my family, my friends — and even to me. How do I deal with the fear?”

    “I want to be more calm. How
    can I do that?”

    “How can I deal with the stress
    of this situation?”

    “I feel so angry. I keep blaming
    everyone who I think should have done something about this. I’m tired of being
    angry.”

    “I keep asking myself, “Will
    I get my job back?” How do I stop asking myself that all the time?”

    “I keep asking myself, “How
    will I pay my bills?” How do I stop asking myself that all the time?”

    “This isolation is really
    getting to me. I feel stuck.”

    “I’m grabby with my kids when
    we’re stuck at home. I don’t want to be like that.”

    “How am I supposed to be taking
    care of my kids at home all day, and still be their educator?”

    “I miss my friends. I want
    to be with them. How can I deal with this?”

    “I’m scared about going out
    of the house. How can I get past this?”

    “How can I help other people
    somehow — and how can I bring myself to even do that?”

    “I’m tired of constantly hearing
    about the virus. How can I make myself do anything else?”

    “I’m in an online discussion
    group (or course). It feels awkward. What can I do?”

    “I’m staying at home with
    another person. We’re getting on our nerves. How can I improve this situation?”

    “I’m working from home. I
    feel disconnected. Does my boss even know what I’m doing?”

    “I need ideas about what to
    do with my time. I’d like to hear you brainstorm some ideas for me.”

    get personal help with in a support group?)
