YES! During the quarantine of 2020, I was still working and attending school. I rarely watched the news and focused on my tasks and my social outings. My cousins and uncle though who were stuck at home 24/7 watching CNN and nothing else started to have a nasty, negative change about them. My cousins suddenly became ANGRY about everything. They screamed at me constantly for small issues. They blamed me for the spread of COVID-19 to America because I continued to work... in a hospital... lol. They were never like that before. It was like they became mentally unhinged and frightening to be around. Since then, I will not watch the news as much. I will read it here and there but I always take constant breaks and try to focus on what's most important and healthy for myself and other human beings.
