Hi, my name is beesdontreadbooks!

Hi all, I wanted to know how long it’s took yourselves to recover enough to have a normal life if ever? I’m having a bad time with it and I’m off work so feel pressure more than ever but don’t feel there’s an answer ...

    Hi @beesdontreadbooks - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. I would guess it's too early for many of us to tell, & we're all still adapting. Some, like myself, who don't get out much, in some ways may find this adaptation easier, tho it's still incredibly hard not to see, or hug our loved ones. It must be hard for you no longer working. This is were the coping strategies my friend thespiceman mentions come in. How to give structure to your day, & perhaps find you now have the time to take up an interest/hobby. There's not a definite answer, just find what may best work for you. :)

    Welcome to the community @beesdontreadbooks. I hope the suggestions above will be of use to you.
    Can I ask how long you've been off work now?
