    Hi all, I’m going to be really really honest right now, I’m going to lay it bare…I need some friends. I suffered with social anxiety for a long time I was very overweight and depressed and shut myself behind a very large smile unnaturally large smile and I used earphones to block the world out while I did the school run. I didn’t know how to be with people and my children kind of became my social group. In lockdown something snapped and I shed all my weight said goodbye to depression and gained a fun, happy on the inside personality. Don’t get me wrong my life is not perfect it’s near impossible yo find a job in care which will give me flexibility but I’m good with money and we don’t go without. What I need though are some friends who know exactly how hard life can be and can appreciate the good things that can happen with a bit of get up and go. If your out there, I’m thinking coffee, wonder round the shops and while the kids are at school, more coffee ☺

    • Hi. It sounds like life is becoming more positive for you. It’s good to hear. Lockdown has been been good for lots of people. Good you have had chance to work things out. Yes, I’m finding it hard to be happy on the inside sometimes but I’m definitely a glass half full person and hope and looking to the short-term future positively is keeping me going. Small steps, one at a time…..

    Hi Vintagedresser

    Love your style & your love of coffee πŸ™‚

    idk if the local groups are up at the moment, but it might be worth checking out if one is local to you to join too. Amazing to read how you have been able to use lockdown for a transformation, really quite inspiring, if that’s not to cheesy to say! πŸ™‚

    Love your honesty & realness, isolation can easily happen being a parent! agreed it important to find folk who really understand our experiences and be of the same frequencies. Am sure you’ll find lots here πŸ™‚
