Lonely
by JP, Lincoln

“I feel guilty for feeling this because l know so many people are struggling, but my lockdown is a positive. I have an illness called endometriosis, it causes the lining of the uterus to grow in other parts of the body causing severe, debilitating pain so I have been unable to work for 3 years. In September my daughter moved to Cornwall. Even though I am so proud of her I felt lonely and isolated when she left. Since lockdown she has been able to come home and stay, as the pub where she is a chef has shut. Also my husband is working fewer hours so l'm less lonely than ever before.

I'm so grateful for my husband and daughter while all this happening. I have even been getting out more to do exercise and l can now run 5k! We have been having pamper parties with face masks and just spending time together. I feel anxious for lockdown to end; l know I will feel lonely and isolated again.”
