DU bubble hug needed post haste

This third lockdown in London is kicking my arse.
I am now a single occupancy household. On my own. There are no bubbles that have space for me cause childcare etc. Have a job which is very busy and so is marvellous, but I can go days without seeing another human other than through teams. Standing in the rain for an hour to get into a supermarket where the shelves are sparse cause Brexit is the most interesting part of my weekend. You are my bubble. I need a virtual bubble hug circle. I am hard core, hell I am a child of the troubles, but loves I need some support right now. I am on my own and my mental health support system lives right here with you. This is HARD. Proper discombobulating nasty in a world where London is the death centre of the world right now, and my heart is sore.

Just sayin'

Keep the SO safe from getting Covid, Then he died. And so I am on my own, in lockdown. While I am grieving my loss. It is fucking hard. I won't lie love, I can and will do it, but my resilience is fraying round the edges, so bubble DU hugs are very much needed

DU is a wonderful way to reach out and communicate during these pandemic times.

I have only seen my mom and sister once in the last year. My son and I haven’t seen any other family members since November 2019. We’re hunkered down here in a very small house with our doggo.

Take care and be well!

30. Sorry to hear about the heartbreak.

Worse, though, must be being in London and NOT being able to be around people. I am in rural, East Texas. Isolation feels somewhat “natural” here, but in London?

I would have to be bad. I would wear my mask and sneak off to the pub. I don’t think that I could resist.

More hugs:

Listening to music, talking to friends, working on some online projects keep me going.

34. A hug for you...

I kind of know the feeling - I live alone and haven't hugged or even shaken hands with another human since March 12, though I do have a cat, who cheers me up quite a bit. I am fortunate for being an introvert who doesn't really like people as a species very much, but I am definitely starting to miss them a bit, or some of them, anyhow. It must be a lot worse for you, though, considering the lockdown and the loss of your SO. This will be over eventually, but in the meantime:

Hi Soph, here are a couple hugs for you.

I too have been pretty much on my own since early March. And my cat does not like to cuddle, so I know how it feels when you can't get the hugs you are used to.

Listening to my old favorite music on YouTube has been a blessing, and I have discovered some new favorites also. It helps in the evening, especially when I am feeling isolated.

More hugs for you.

52. Big hug from the Oregon coast

Like you, I live alone. Not even a cat.

I can see harbor seals playing in the water in front of my rented Covid isolation condo. I think of them as my "sea puppies".

I was in an apartment before and felt it was too risky to stay. I'm running through retirement savings faster than I would like staying here, but Covid was the "break glass" event for me.

I cannot imagine dealing with the covid isolation, plus the loss of a partner. I'm so glad that you come here to post. If you feel like it, I'd love to know more about your post-Brexit, daily covid life. I can share stories from the Oregon coast as well.

We aren't famous for much. Except for the exploding whale.


Hang in their gurlfriend. You do have friends here who love you.

53. In that boat too

Hi Soph,

I can totally relate as I have been pretty much alone for 10 months now. Not even going to the grocery stores (delivery instead). I thought I was going loose it in October as the days got short and the weather cold. Strangely the stress of the election and post-election period shocked me out of my state of loneliness. I attribute that to significant increase in watching the news, checking DU, reading twitter and texting with friends. Even though it is not the same as being with someone, it helped me to know I was not alone. Other things that helped were having sports, news, commentary, etc. on in the background (there is something about a program being live versus taped that makes a difference i think). Listening to radio stations from various places around the world. Checking in to Youtube live and webcams of places from around the world. Watching comedians, concerts, tiktok and other videos on Youtube. Rediscovering favorite old albums on Spotify. And playing interactive games with people online. Finally I started talking with a counselor and working on strategies for how to deal with the really tough times through grounding, breathing and other techniques. A warm shower or rubbing my bare feet across the carpet has taken the edge off of the moment. Best of luck to you and sending a virtual hug.

Allan

What a rough year this has been for you.. If there are little self care indulgences you can practice at home (long bubble bath, foot massage, order in some favorite food, listening to music you love, watching a funny movie or TV show, looking at beautiful photographs, thinking about/planning something wonderful that you want to do post-pandemic, calling someone special you haven't spoken to lately, writing some cards, making gratitude lists, practicing positive self-affirmations) this might help. We will get through this, and in the meantime your DU family is here for you!

62. It is hard, but it will get easier with time.

Vaccines are getting out there, so cases should come down and some restrictions lifted.

Meanwhile stay connected to loved ones via phone or Internet, Zoom video calls, etc. Watch concerts or movies online.

Can you get groceries delivered to avoid lines?

Are you allowed in London to go for drives, take photos, just to safely get out of the house a little bit?

Take up cooking, reading, and think of it as an opportunity to do things you've never had time for before. Take up painting. Write short stories. Clean out a closet or paint your home office.

DU is a lifeline, but it isn't the only one.

85. Sending you a Rocky, but Mountainous hug from Colorado, Soph0571

At work, neither the customers, nor coworkers, nor my boss wear their masks reliably. To counter their foolishness, I wear a surgical mask, a homemade mask over that, then a face shield, surrounded by a scarf attached to the face shield with 8 stud earrings. One of my friends calls me "the beekeeper." Better to look like an idiot, than be one!

Hope the image gives you a laugh. Hang in there!

86. Sending a big hug from Oregon

Hope it gets better for you. I forced myself to sign up for a second bookclub weekly on zoom going through a book chapter by chapter instead of talking about whole book.

Tomorrow morning is first meeting, weird to be doing it in morning but leader is working in Israel. And its 7:30pm there.

Find something anything where you have connection, force yourself like me.

99. Love To You Soph

Tight hug with a little quiver. Ah, that was nice. A friend of mine told me about a cat that acts like a dog, a ragdoll cat, cuddles, and when the lockdown is over you can go to work not having to worry about taking a dog out. My saving grace is I'm not all that thrilled with people, you seem to be much more of a people person. When I started this I would have been your 99th hug, you should be feeling better 💙
