Am I the only person who struggled with their mental health during lockdown? I’m starting to feel a bit better now but I’m honestly shocked and a bit embarrassed at how quickly my mental health deteriorated.
I didn’t realise how much I needed my friends, family, something to look forward to and a routine.
I keep hearing there is a mental health crisis looming, but I don’t know anyone in real life who admits to having struggled.
Feel like it’s only been me. Please tell me I’m not alone
You’re not alone! I was on my way out of PND (we were lowering my med dose) before lockdown. 4 weeks in I ended up on a higher dose of antidepressants due to the stress. At 5 weeks we moved in with my parents for a month because I was sinking fast. I’d say it’s a 50/50 of people that struggled vs those that didn’t.
