Mental illness is a difficult thing to live with. The little things like going to visit a friend or popping to your local coffee shop can be what help you stay well. So losing that freedom can feel hard to bear.
I tried to remind myself of how important it is to protect others by staying at home. As the UK government keeps saying.. stay home, save lives. This will all eventually end. Here’s a little poem I wrote last night.
Hope is the light that shines through,
Connecting me to you.
Smiling faces on handheld screens,
Although apart, we are together.
The kindest words and deeds,
Spread faster than any disease.
So here in our homes we will wait,
Bravely keeping each other safe.
