Isolation

I am really struggle with being at home with no human interaction due to the Covid 19 threat. Two years ago, I found myself in a behavioral hospital due to depression and suicidal thoughts.   During my stay, I recognized the importance of connection to my mental health. When I got out, I got involved with several groups and made a very deliberate effort to develop friendships. A few months ago, I lost my job. Unable to find another one, I started volunteering working with the public which ended a couple weeks ago with CoVid19. One by one groups began canceling, and activities were halted. Social distancing became the new norm. And, I am alone again. I go to the stores, staying at a safe distance, just to hear human voices. I feel the depression creeping back in. I don’t want to go there again.
