Struggling with covid and mental healthWatch
Sometimes you have to just be more grateful, im assuming you live in a house, you must have access to the Internet on a smart device, you have friends, you have education and you are going to uni yet you are still complaining. People have non of this and are losing people due to this virus. Its not just you whos in lockdown and not been out its everyone. Im not being rude but instead of using energy feeling sorry for yourself and playing the sympathy card on here I would suggest being more grateful for what you have because the world doesn't revolve around you. Again I am not trying to be rude or whatever I am just being truthful
It feels like you're being pretty rude. This is why some people don't open up or ask for advice because of people like you. I'm not playing any sympathy card, that is not my intention, I just believed this was a safe space to open up and ask for advice at a moment when I didn't know what to do. I acknowledge I have more than some people but that doesn't mean I don't have the right to struggle or to be upset when something happens in my life. If you have nothing constructive/nice to say then don't say anything at all.
Hi yes thank you I have seeked help from my family, my friends and some other mental health services and am progressing through my second year at a slower pace with the help of tutors. I am feeling a little better and am back home for a while due to the national lockdown anyway. 😊
I'm not trying to be rude just realistic andunless you want me to lie to you Iwouldsay its good. I mean you can maybe go put and do some exercise and you can meet 1 person from outside the household. Unfortunately dealing with it might be the realistic solution for you right now because I'm sorry to inform and I agree it does suck but we do have got quite a long time until we come out of lockdown and even then we will probably just go into tier 4.
Okay, that's good to hear, be kind to yourself, last year sucked for all of us, and it's OK to get help, so I'm glad you did. What sort of things are you doing day to day? Do you journal? Meditate? Practice mindfulness? These small things can be incoorperated into your day to day life and whilst they might not "fix" the situation, they can help.
Thank you and yes I know it wasn't a nice time for anyone. I haven't made any daily habits but I have been trying to be more active and make sure I get fresh air wherever possible even if that's just a small walk in the morning. I went for a run today and that really helped clear my mind.
