Hi Mandy, thank you posting on this forum today. Being alone, especially during COVID, can be really difficult and can have an effect on your mood. Some people may end up turning to alcohol during these times, however drinking excessively can be problematic. You may want to try to choose a few people you would virtually reach out to if you are feeling very lonely one day. Also, try to do one thing per day that you enjoy (e.g., read your favourite book, drink your favourite tea/coffee on your couch etc.). It’s also good to check in with your doctor or a therapist to make sure that you are getting the support that you need and deserve.
