    Ha I'm going to blame Covid for some of my current depression but I know its not just that. My goal this year was to find consistent work to keep depression at bay. Ha that has taken time, I at least have an interview next week. The other thing volunteering has been stopped due to Covid but planning to put that in somewhere in my week once I have work or maybe before it but its second priority unless there are no jobs soon. Kept busy in other ways but I just think the brain likes consistency hah and its been a bit rocky this year. Who else is dealing with a flattening depression that feels like a fog/cement?

    Best to all

    Hi Paul,

    Yeah thanks be good to lock down some work and test if it actually makes an impact to my current mood. I volunteered as a store-hand for a charity. I do prefer to work face to face with people but such is the situation at present just gotta be grateful for whats available don't we ? So you get brainfog from stress /anxiety do you think ?
