Aside from a former neighbour from around 48 and a half years ago sadly dying, and one friend being diagnosed but having happily recovered, I've been lucky in that the Covid-19 pandemic hasn't impacted on my life too much. Sure, there's been the inconvenience of having to wear a mask (though I've been told I should always wear one because I'm ugly) and not too many shops being open, but having lived the life of a freelancer for 15 years (which ended around 21 years ago), I'm quite used to spending large periods of time by myself. Social isolation is therefore no big deal for me, and in no way a hardship, but I'm not being smug about that fact as it must be a bit of a grind for others who are far more sociably-minded than I've ever been (or wanted to be).
So I was wondering - in what way has the current situation affected your life? Do you feel trapped, frightened, uncertain of what the future may hold, or have you just taken things in your stride, with a quiet confidence that things will eventually return to normal - or a close facsimile? If you feel like sharing how the pandemic has affected you, feel free to talk about it in the comments section.
