We've been in lockdown for so long I've lost count of the weeks. Four or five, maybe even six weeks at this point. It's a wonder we're still sane at all.

Apparently, not all of us are. According to a new survey by Kelton Global shared by Yahoo News, more than a quarter of us have reached our "breaking point."

More results form the survey show that 72% expect to reach their breaking point sometime in the next five weeks (meaning early June) if the orders remain in effect.

For those that already have, 29% are women, while 20% of men say the same and  younger folks are more likely to be at the breaking point. 35% of those aged 18 to 24 feel the same way, while only 22% of those over 45 are saying the same.

It looks like the rise in fears can be attributed to getting back to some everyday type of activities, including:

  • Going on flights (69%)
  • Going to a bar/restaurant (62%)
  • Using a ride sharing service (58%)

How are you holding up?
