“I’m stressed. There I said it. Almost three months into this global pandemic and my nerves are getting rather frayed at the edges.

In general terms I’ve been lucky – I’ve not been ill, nor has anyone in my immediate circle. And, unlike many others, at this point I’m not struggling to pay my rent. But lockdown is definitely taking its toll on my inner world as well as my outer. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in feeling this way and it is no doubt why only last month the World Health Organization announced the gloomy prospect of an impending, pandemic-related mental health crisis.”
