SusanEaston327 Are they being rude in the shops? That's unacceptable. I had to encourage several people to walk past me in Tesco the other day as they were being so cautious and polite so must have gone in at the right time!

My best friend has mental health issues. I check in on her most days via messenger and we video chat, seeing her nephew cheers her up. A few friends who live closer to her drop off wee present every so often, like home baking, hand written cards from their children. She has a dog and she would really struggle without him just now. She knows it is necessary but she is finding it tough. She is trying to stay busy as working from home only takes up so much time.

mxria67 she has been my best mate since uni, been through everything with me and was there for me during a very difficult time in my life, so I want to help her every way I can just now.

A friend of mine has had a problem with meeting people in person for years. They say they're coming to visit and don't turn up. Most of their friends have given up on them because for a long time, they just acted that way and people didn't understand or like it. My other half and I just about managed to stay in touch and as a result, had a confession from our friend about knowing they had a problem. I'm happy knowing that they moved back in with family long before this lockdown. They say they work for the NHS now but I have no idea if that's true. It doesn't really matter what they do as long as they're alright!

My Mum is on her own with only the cat. As others have said on here, I encourage anybody who is on their own to just keep communicating with others, preferably people you know. If you know somebody on their own, put the extra effort into sending them a message now and again. I'm doing that with colleagues. It doesn't have to be via video chat all the time but I have to admit it has been nice to speak with friends and family on live video. Get outside for a walk now and again. I did at the weekend and it helped. Follow those simple steps and the real world won't be such a shock to the system when things calm down a bit.

Use this period to realise that we're all humans behind our complex personalities, likes, dislikes and opinions. I really hope you can find a way to get out there and meet people once this is all over. Look at websites like meetup.com and I'm sure there are thousands of others who are in the same boat as you.

Loislane zelda78, your mental health is important. If you're struggling, speak to people. There's a good assessment quiz on the NHS website to help guide you and there are always people like The Samaritans who can provide a friendly voice the other end of a phone line.

My OH is starting to struggle, his anxiety is going up because he can't get out as much as he would like, (he kept it under control at gym), he's taken over the care of his Mum because his brother who has schizophrenia cannot cope with lockdown, he's terrified the Police will stop him when taking his Mums shopping. I try to support them all and worry about the ones I can't at the moment and stay positive πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

My mental health is fine. I don't really tend to go out much anymore anyways and being an aspie, I don't need to see people all the time and hang out. I'm fine with not seeing anyone at the moment. I've got lots of plants and insects and wildlife. I think aspies are probably by and large going to handle this in some ways better because we don't need to have people around us all the time. The garden is a huge saving grace. I'm not in a small space. I've got this big field for a garden now and thank goodness as my old garden was small, 100% overlooked and it was not nice out there being watched. here it is quiet. No noisy neighbours. Just birdsong. I'm actually better than I've been in ages mental health wise. πŸ˜€

It's really nice to see this thread here. If I'm honest I am struggling mentally, some days I have so much motivation to do all my housework, go on my alloted walk, call my grandparents, cook dinner etc and other days I can't face getting out of bed. Everyone's routine has been thrown out of sync so I'm sure we all have days when we struggle. Hope everyone is staying safe physically and mentally πŸ‘πŸ»
