"Even before lock down I’ve suffered with Mental Health - unless I can distract myself with friends and family and social events, I feel very low! Baking and crochet helps me focus on other things and seeing the finished product always makes me feel accomplished and I absorb compliments on my work from family and friends.
Lock-down has been hard for me, as when I am alone I feel like no-one cares about me and I feel helpless; but taking on such hobbies helps, as it takes up a lot of my time and the finished product always feels like an accomplishment."
"Lock-down has also taught me to find my own happiness and not to reply on others to keep me sane and comfortable and I hope I continue to remember that I am one person...the only person who can make me happy and fulfilled is me and my son. No-one else can change my feelings and well being; they may mask it for a short time, but in order to be truly happy in myself it needs to land with me and my inner self...and that is what I am working on."
