Hi sorry I haven’t been on for a while, as everyone has ive been coming to terms with the new normal we find ourselves in. I have had no motivation etc. I have also started new medication which hasn’t helped with the boredom no motivation cycle. I’m starting to get used to the new normal and feel better within myself. Hope everyone is keeping healthy and safe.

    Hi @Brightsidebecs - I'm pleased to hear from you as I wondered where you were. I'm sorry you've not been so good, & glad to read you're now feeling a little better in yourself. You've been missed, so hope you can start contributing to the community once more, but look after yourself too! :)

    Glad you are feeling a bit better brightsidebecs.... This is week five of our isolation ( my wife and myself). I know I should be thankful that we have each other , as many people are on their own trying to deal with this virus . 
    Please take care ..we will beat this through time if we all stick to the rules of distancing . My son and grandaughter delivery provisions to our door . We are very lucky but I am feeling a bit low just now ...I think of all the deaths and all the families that are left behind to deal with it ....God rest those who died...and may their God be with the families ...God bless you all .?

    Hi @Brightsidebecs, really lovely to hear from you! Sorry to hear you have struggled with the adjustment and new medication.

    I too have felt very unmotivated at times and you certainly are not alone in feeling that way. The world may appear to be using this time to be super productive and do all the things they have ever wanted to do, yet it's completely okay to take things one step at a time. :)
