Hi since lockdown I have been really lonely and not really had anyone who has my condition to understand what I'm going through.

    Hi @guystar26 and welcome to the community! I'm sorry to read that you've been feeling lonely, but as @janer1967 has said, you're definitely not alone with feeling like this. Would you mind telling us what condition you have? Hopefully there will be another member with the same condition :)
