I'm loving the fact I don't have to go out. I haven't had any anxiety attacks or panic attacks since the lockdown.
People don't realise how stressful it is for me going here, there and everywhere. I do it because it's good to push to myself, but it makes me ill too.
I've been poorly with a chest infection and had asthma problems for a few weeks so I haven't felt like doing anything.
But now I'm gardening, sewing, doing some crafts. I've made a couple of sock animals, a snail and a whale. Anything that keeps my brain active. I play word games and do crosswords. I read too.
I miss seeing my friends and family more. We are all so close usually. A phone call isn't enough. I miss getting hugs from loved ones. Being touched. But I have my cats thank goodness.
I hope everyone keeps safe and well.
