How has COVID-19 impacted your mental health?: "I don’t think there’s just one answer to this question and it can change several times a day.

One thing I know is that I miss physical contact with people much more than I would. I’m not a touchy feely person on the whole. But apart from my 7 year old I haven’t had a hug or hugged anyone since March. Just thinking about that makes me feel low. The other element is the anxiety. If one of us tests positive and we all have to self isolate it could be the start of a long period of isolation and I worry about school, college and work over that period of time. It’s the sort of worry that wakes me up in the night."
