Lockdown stories

How has it been for you so far?

Welcome to the world’s first collective lockdown journal.

These are strange times. Lockdowns made us appreciate morning coffee with colleagues, check-in queues at the airport, in person dates, hanging out with friends worry-free. They made us appreciate how much we mean to each other. Here we anonymously share our stories, struggles, triumphs and secrets.

Durning the lockdown I felt so lonely that I bought myself a drone and I flew this over the city so I can watch people what they do in their flats, if there are people queueing in front of my local shops. It was once a day you could walk but I actually walked whole day with my drone

Im single and I kept thiking about how cool it would be to be in lock down with somebody I would normally date. I actually met such person but all of a sudden the comms died. I know relationships arent always easy (the grass is always greener...) but during this time I felt it more than usual that people in relationships were better off. I heard the lockdown strengthened quite a few relationships, Im not surprised about that. I was lucky to spend some time with my best friend (socially distanced, of course). It was such a relief. Happy to admit that I felt a bit isolated at times. The new normal might get challenging if we hit a second or third wave. This post is about Mental health AND dating and Ive gone through various emotions, so the below radio buttons arent delivering the most accurate choices.

After enjoying the initial calm for few months, I now miss meeting people in person, not just online. I really got used to this online thing for nearly everything, but I do miss sharing physical space with others. Theres something so precious in simply being physically together. I guess thats how we are wired as human beings. This isolation is starting to feel so unnatural. And I miss the travel too.

I find this whole lockdown pretty boring, having all the time to spend in front of computer or TV, reading books and drinking lots of alcohol. I reconnected with friends over the internet which is fine but I still like having hugs and kisses from them when we meet. Sadly no travelling made my life empty. And sexual life now is flat like my vibrators battery now and then.

The past few months have been a rollercoaster of emotions. I went from uncertainty and anxiety towards what was happening, to disbelief for being made redundant, to hope that we will pull it thru. It has been a time of self reflection and of rethinking the way I was doing things, the way I was reacting to what was coming towards me. I learned to live with myself better, to accept myself more and to find the silver lining even in these times. Patience was something that I always knew I had to improve, however in this period I was forced to develop patience and Covid has helped a lot in this sense.

I think I watched all Netflix and all my movies I had stored. I can't believe we are on lockdown more! I'll go insane

This is a place where we share what we miss the most, we embrace the grief over our losses, we open up about our feelings of isolation, we laugh at our hilarious moments, drop the odd insights gained, recognise hidden blessings, see through the eyes of people who are looking through different lenses. How will we look back at this peculiar time 20 years from now?
