    Hi @jeni - welcome to the community, & thank you for joining us all. The current situation is difficult for so many people, but I hope by joining this friendly & supportive forum you will feel less alone, & among others who do understand. Scope has put together a post about coping with things just now, as mentioned above; here's a link to this: https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/75929/coping-with-stress-low-mood-and-isolation-a-support-thread
    Please have a look through. As we're all different, what may help one person may not work for another. Personally I've found more than one thing works, & that's a better combination to help me battle with my daily chronic pain.
    Do look around the forum, & also chat here absolutely any time. :)
