Being confined to a small space together can be quite stressful for any couple. But add in the stress of the outbreak of a potentially life-threatening illness, and you might find even further trouble tolerating one another.

Fortunately, there are some ways to help one another get through quarantine. Here’s what you can do to ensure that your relationship survives being confined in a small room together:

Help each other deal with the emotional rollercoaster

From anger to fear, the quarantine will likely stir up a lot of emotion. And you might experience these emotions coming in waves.

You may find yourselves laughing one minute and crying just a short time later. And of course, you’re likely to be bored and frustrated in between. This is all normal when faced with such a highly stressful and unfamiliar situation as quarantine. There’s little known about what to expect, what might happen, or when you will be able to leave.

Help one another ride this emotional rollercoaster. Rather than minimize your partner’s feelings by saying, “Oh there’s nothing to be scared about,” say things like, “I know this is a scary situation.” Just knowing that you’re listening can provide a big sense of relief for your partner.

Focus on being kind and respectful

Any stressful situation can cause you to grow a bit irritable and snarky with one another. But under normal circumstances, you can walk away and take a break. Obviously, you can’t do that when you’re quarantined in the same room.

Make it a goal to treat your partner with kindness — even when you don’t feel like it. Apologize when you are unkind, and forgive your partner for being rude at times as well.

Keep in mind that even though there aren’t a lot of things you can control when you’re quarantined, one thing you can control is how you treat one another. So make it a goal to remain kind and respectful despite feeling stressed out.

Practice healthy coping skills

When you’re quarantined, you won’t have access to many of the coping skills you’ve likely grown accustomed to in managing distress — like walking around the neighborhood or going for a drive to listen to music. Consequently, you might find yourself feeling a bit helpless when it comes to managing your mood.

Fortunately, there are some simple coping strategies you can turn to even when you’re quarantined. Meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, drawing, listening to music, reading a book, or just pacing around the room might decrease your stress and help you feel better.

Work on managing your emotions so you can be the best partner you are able to under the circumstances. Talk about the skills that are working for you, and offer to assist your partner

SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder covers many seasons and things including depression, anxiety, and more PTSD to name a few. I myself have clinical depression, an anxiety disorder, and PTSD (from being raped 3 different times and my mother trying to suffocate me right before she tried to take her own life in 1971 after my father’s passing a year before). Many of us with different phobias and/or emotional problems are told, “Buck up and move on” or, “My favorite you can’t be disabled I can’t see anything wrong with you.” Just because we can walk unaided, see with out help, hear again without help, but it is what we try to cover over so we don’t have to hear unkind comments many of us just never leave our homes.

You can help a friend or even a stranger by being an ear to listen to them and not judging them for what they need to say. You could find out about a home bound person possibly through a local church or even online. You could arrange to bring lunch or dinner once a week staying to eat with them so they have some kind of human contact. Usually when you get paired with someone you receive their phone number not their address this so you can make a connection via talking and work up to having a meal with them find out what they miss by not being able to leave home, i.e. sweets, reading material, word search or crossword puzzle books, etc.

Do not judge a person you know because the seem really down or stressed to the max instead ask them, “Is there anything I can do to help you? I’m hear to listen anytime you need to talk.” If someone you know seems very depressed or stressed you may want to suggest they see their doctor to talk about how they are feeling.” Also offer to drive them if you can so they know someone cares enough to honestly want to help them not out of duty or you feel you have to, do because you want to help and you care about the person.
