When the clock turned to midnight on the 1st of January 2020 as usual I sent messages to friends and family wishing them a very happy new year. Like many other people I was hoping for another fantastic year, being able to meet new people, move house and potentially meet someone, then lockdown began.
After a month in Lockdown I saw an article by the BBC about how people were coping with lockdown and being confined to their houses. There were a couple of people who were finding it particularly tough, one stating that he was an alcoholic and was finding it extremely hard not to drink. At the time I found it easy to judge him, I mean this is a holiday isn’t it? Why would anyone need to find solace in alcohol abuse.
After three months in lockdown I am beginning to understand how someone could turn to alcohol, drugs or worse. I consider myself pretty tough when it comes to mental health mainly because I am curious about what life will be like when all of this dies down and when everything returns to some sort of “normal”. There are words though that I hope I will never have to put into a sentence ever again like “social distancing” and “lockdown” words I have learned to hate.
