I’m in Sydney’s lockdown 2.0 and I’m struggling with my mental health. And I know I’m not alone. Every single person I’ve talked to in Sydney this past weekend has told me the same thing.
One friend who’s having to onboard new staff virtually, on top of dealing with mounting work pressure, sounded completely deflated. Another is pregnant and upset that she can’t share the experience with her friends or family or buy in-person the baby things she needs. Yet another is dealing with a break-up and constantly reminded of her lockdown situation last year when she was still living with her ex.
Personally, the biggest thing I’m struggling with is that I also keep comparing this lockdown experience to the last.
