I’m sat looking in at world I no longer inhabit. It’s too noisy, overwhelming and stressful. I thought I’d got through lockdown pretty much in one piece, but it turns out I was wrong. The last few weeks have seen a steady decline in my mental and emotional health. As each day has progressed, I have found it increasingly difficult to cope with the sadness, the anxiety and the demands of life, in a fear based, increasingly volatile world, which I no longer understand or have the motivation to engage with.
