COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

I’m so sorry i meant to post this.

Well this is just embarrassing. I’m so sorry.


:thinking: My curiosity is piqued as to what the clip was meant to be, or why you didn’t just edit or delete it. :sweat_smile:

Anyway to answer the question learning how to get better at day and swing trading atm. I’ve always wanted to do it but never had the time to focus on it during the day

It’s excellent when you make a grand or so in a few days, and get to shout…

The dream would be to get enough to pay off the mortgage and earn a living off it. It’s pretty tough mentally when it goes against you though.

I’ve begun journaling recently, as a therapy for my mental health. I take chores day by day, rather than all at once at the weekend, and relax with a box set (currently Mad Men) or PS4 (Skyrim). On weekends I’ll maybe bake, design my home space, engage in serious garden warfare (it’s a big project!), walk for miles in the countryside around London, or meet friends in a park.

Can’t wait to get back to the theatre and opera, and the Arsenal, once things reopen.

Oh, and


Was the question for me.? If it was I sometimes go for walks usually late at night when no one is around as with my depression I have a lot of social anxity and I am on loads of anti d and valium

I have social anxiety, and am currently on anti-depressants. That’s how I got into walking at the weekends, last year I walked the London Loop, 250km around London in the Green Belt.

Exercise, mindful meditation, healthy eating, counselling and medication have all helped my recovery.

Keep well, friend.


It sucks living with extreme mental health problems. People don’t understand. Just because I look healthy from the outside they think everything is OK… They don’t know what going on in my brain

Wishing you all the best.

You’re not alone and I promise there are those who do understand.

I’m working in mental health at the moment and there’s been a big spike in COVID-related mental health issues here.

Keep doing whatever cheers you up even slightly (as long as it’s legal!) as it’ll be doing you the world of good.

I think the lack of social outlets and distractions is the hardest for me.

I’ve never been this messed up in my head before.

I do the same, only I have trouble sleeping very long, so usually go for long walks at 6am. Over 1,040 kms since the start of lockdown

Just got this same news article via notification from Apple News. I’m glad it’s finally happening. Been mandatory in Scotland since Friday, and from what I’ve seen on social media and heard from family, people are actually, finally, unanimously wearing masks. Until then, you’d be lucky if one or two shoppers had them, and even then they would be dangling round necks rather than covering noses and mouths.

But Gove was so adamant at the weekend that it wouldn’t be a requirement, fools the lot of them, boys club

I don’t see an end to this as things stand so I’d guess masks will be a long term thing.

I was listening today to at least one interview where the presumption was that masks in shops would help people feel secure and able to return to some semblance of normality. I don’t know about anyone else but my instant reaction is just to try an stay out of shops as much as possible for the foreseeable future.


My crystal ball must have recently been polished because I ordered a few masks this afternoon off Etsy. I’d been umming and ahhing about finding the right type, the right material, the right colour, the right price … and today I just thought, “anything is better than nothing”, so I went for it. I might buy a lottery ticket now.


Gove is always the one to be sent out on a Sunday to vehemently deny anything will change, just before everything changes on the Monday.

Theresa May did it to him time and time again with Brexit, Johnson is carrying on the fun.

I ordered at the weekend when they started saying it’s getting reviewed should be here in a few days

Not fully clued up on the scientific reasons for wearing coverings but from a user perspective I’ve found Snoods much more practical.

I’ve had 2 masks for a few weeks now, with different types of elastic and both of them were annoying to wear for more than a couple of minutes, one of them hurt my ears, whilst the other heated my face up like I was in an oven.

I’ve found wearing a snood much better has I can actually breathe through it. Probably 100% useless at protection, but then again im only wearing it because Nicola Sturgeon told me to…

Saw This earlier… not sure what to make of it
