Just feeling utter despair today that nothing will be changing for months on end. When will we be able to see people? I'm talking just going to my parents house to see them, if we are all healthy, not vulnerable etc. Not group gatherings etc. I guess I just want some hope sad

No one knows sadly. Sorry you're struggling. I've had a rough day with it too.

I really hope it’s the first thing to be eased. I’m completely on my own for lockdown and starting to really struggle today after over 4 weeks of just me.

So sorry you're feeling low @prettygreenteacup. I feel exactly the same today if it's any consolation and have seen numerous posts from other Mumsnetters saying exactly the same. Sort of feels like we're at a tipping point now - we need some hope, a glimpse of the other side of all of this.

You aren’t alone flowers, I’m not sure what it is about today but I’ve spoken to lots of people feeling the same . My aunt who’s always seemed very ‘sorted’ texted tonight saying she’s really starting to struggle - and my gran (80, vulnerable) was crying on FaceTime too . It’s hell .

I'm worried about how they're going to reverse lockdown. I've a horrible feeling that because of the idiots who will rush to have parties and so on, they won't officially allow ANY socialising for ages. Completely unfair and awful for people who are alone.
Sadly the person I most want to see is being unexpectedly reverent of the rules so we can't meet until the government officially say so.

I'm really surprised and disappointed that single person households have been forgotton about, considering it's well known and commented on that increasing numbers of people live alone. Even the report about the potential mental health impact of lockdown failed to mention people living alone in their list of people who may be particularly at risk (a list that arguably covered most of the population!).

I'm happy for the lockdown to continue as it is for as long as needed to get numbers very low. However, I'm another not feeling great today, I can't see a time when we can go to work and feel safe, will be able to see and hug family and friends, treat ourselves to coffee with a friend, meal out with family, even a simple camping trip, let alone holidays abroad.

Didn’t Germany allow gatherings of 5 at a household?
