A virus has broken out that no vaccination can fight. It has affected almost everyone, and was made worse by the long winter. It’s cabin fever, one of those folk diseases that isn’t medically defined, but is nonetheless real.
Cabin fever is caused by isolation. “Psychological symptoms that people may experience when they are unable to leave their home and participate in social interaction,” is how it is defined by Dr. Danielle Dresden in Medical News Today. Some of the symptoms: boredom, irritability, restlessness, impatience, lack of motivation and so on.
