I have recently joined and don't really know what I am doing. I joined because I just feel so lonely and not going out I am finding it harder to deal with

    Nice to meet you. This whole situation has got so many people feeling down and alone, it can be very scary. Please remember you aren't alone. There are lots of friendly helpful people here. I keep my mind busy with all the word games. It's a fun way to connect with people too.

    It's good to see you around @pinkpanther :) Don't worry about not knowing what you're doing! You're welcome to comment on any discussions that catch your eye, or start your own like you have done here.

    You mentioned not getting out much, is there something in particular that's preventing you from going out?

    Welcome to the forum :) if you are feeling lonely I think you did the right thing by joining and making a post here, there are lots of discussions to take part in and you can of course make your own if you think of something that hasn’t already been asked :smiley:
