I think on a music festival message board it’s a legitimate question to ask. It doesn’t suggest the OP doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Of course there are much bigger things to be worrie

So...OX/AZ, blood clots, suspension of vaccinations, politics, vaccine hesitancy, convoluted data, PR problems, Brexit, EU procurement naivety, poor logistics, national identity...there’s an awful lot

A while since I/we posted because just like everyone else we get fed up of this shit. So just like to say..... For the first time since last March we are free of covid patients 😊

Not at all. I can’t wait to get back to normal life, parties and festivals, but there’s no need to belittle anyone who’s not feeling like that... and compare people with potential MH issues to indie sage.

Yes, and I think it's important to treat that as a health/mental health issue rather than sneering and being all "lol what a bunch of weirdos wanting to stay indoors" which the forum and social media in general often veers towards.

It's unhealthy to be so isolated and hermetic for so long, and the combination of WFH + lockdown + anxiety/media fear has made a lot of people not want to know any different, and would feel perfectly safe living like this forever. It has proper mental and physical impact, and if there's people on this forum feeling like that then – multiply by the amount of people in the country – there's going to be huge fallout from this over the coming year. Some people are going to freak out trying to assimilate back, and some will just double down and seal themselves off even more.

The government should be throwing money at MH support coming out of this pandemic because we're going to need it.

I’m out of upvotes but this is a very good post. You’ve raised some very important points and I think you are right there are people that will need to go slower than others and hopefully there will be the support available for people that need it. 
Mental health suffering should never be something that people should be made to feel embarrassed with as you say. I hope that it gets much more focus we we leave the pandemic behind us.

Sorry but there was absolutely none of this offered to those of us who rely on social contact back during the lockdowns world forgive me if I don’t lose any sleep for those who are suffering now. I’m excited for the reopenings.

That’s not what your post said at all though.

I said some people seem to be fine with lockdown. My point wasn’t really about mental health reasons tbh but felt the need to clarify that too after.

Why are you so lacking in empathy? We've all suffered from lack of social contact, especially at the start. And we all discussed how hard it was - at length.

I've no idea how your brain works that being happy for the reopening doesn't leave any room for any consideration for people who are struggling with re-integration.

Personally, I'm somewhere in the middle. On balance, I'm looking forward to getting back into things, but not without some apprehension about learning how to socialise again. I think I'll be fine, but I certainly feel for those who are going to find it harder, surely you'd have to be a psychopath not to?

You would think/hope that as people get their first and second doses their anxieties about being around other people should ease far quicker than they would have otherwise. 
 


 

from a personal point of view it certainly helps .... but as someone that has been very aware of distancing and was shielding during the first wave its quite a difficult thing to break .... Im much more aware of my personal space at the moment ... and I guess a needle doesn't instantaneously stop that being the case ... Ill get there ive no doubt ... but some understanding for people that have had to shield would be great .... Thank you

My sister (28 with no health issues) got a text from her GP today to get the vaccine tomorrow. My brother (40 next month) is at the same GP and has heard nothing. I’m 36 and at a different one and still waiting. Seems like such a lucky dip this far into the roll-out!

It's weird, right?

I prefer to give him the benefit of the doubt and assume there's an element of hyperbole in his posts. At least I hope so.

That may be a quirk of the way appointments are being offered - specifically, that your brother has already become eligible to book through the national booking system for about a week now (due to turning 40 before July 1st) - so there's no reason for the GP to issue a special invite to him.

When he looked at that, it tied to send him to a hub 20 miles away. Think he’s going to wait to get it at a more local venue.

Could be that the GP has stocks of Pfizer/Moderna not required for 2nd jab, talk at vaccination centre is that they could be used for the under 30s who cannot have AZ.

Doh. That's a far better hypothesis than mine, think you'll be right there. Completely forgot about the <30s not getting AZ.

Yep but I have no idea why I’m called a bully for a pretty innocuous post. Especially from a guy who is the most verbally abusive on this entire thread.

Because the same people saying now that they want to keep masking and distancing forever are the people that were making us feel guilty for being down about lockdown last year, praising countries who locked down early, “just stay home and shut up” type stuff. Frankly, my mental health was in the toilet as a direct result of this sort of behaviour. So I won’t be shedding any tears for people like @Ozanne when society reopens.

Right, so you're pissed off with Ozanne, but everyone else who didn't piss you off, but is struggling can also get in the sea?

I guess with your job it can either be a help or a hinderance to getting ready to being back out there. Especially after shielding! I definitely think you are right about having a vaccine helping but it not being the an instant reset button.

This is the thing everyone has their own battles and their own way of overcoming those battles, and we’ll all get their in the end.
