With how the world is right now, it has become more apparent how difficult it can be to be isolated. Loneliness is a growing problem. Due to COVID-19, a lot of us are spending more time at home; which is highlighting the difficulties of being housebound.
I often hear people say, ‘that give me anxiety’ or ‘I feel really depressed’ and whilst I know it is important to acknowledge how people are feeling, it is also important to differentiate between feeling an emotion and experiencing a condition/disorder. Everyone can feel these ways at certain points, but that does not mean they have a mental health condition.
