Q. How has COVID-19 impacted your mental health?
I’ve been so pleased with myself at how I’ve coped throughout the whole pandemic, but this week has felt a bit like “the shit has hit the fan” and there’s nothing major to report. I am simply fed up. I feel lonely. The person I was in a bubble with has distanced themselves for whatever reasons, so I have lost that regular adult conversation. Being alone a lot gives me so much time to think and over think everything. The worst thing about it all is knowing there isn’t an end in sight. The children asked if Covid was going to be gone by Christmas and the honest answer of “no” feels a bit too much for us to process.
