    Hi @j4ff4. This whole situation is really tough isn't it?
    I'm sorry you're struggling at the moment, but you're more than welcome here. I spotted your artwork in another thread. You certainly have some talent! Do you have any other creative outlets?

    If it helps, we have an article here about how to look after your mental health in lockdown that you're very welcome to read!

    Hi I am Carol have complex ed mental health issues and disabled as had spinal injury last May which left me wheelchair 24/7.  
    Similar to John I suffer with anxiety and normally avoid people but covid-19 is making me feel very isolated and low mood.  Am doing a couple of online courses to keep me occupied and trying to stay focused but days long and not sleeping very well does not help.
    But upwards and onward as they say.  A big HELLO to EVERYONE. Squeak (Carol)
