So I'm usually quite positive and don't hang around negative people and in this climat it's almost impossible to anyway.
But I miss my family and think that I'm just not coping very well at the moment.

We speak everyday on whatsapp or over the telephone but I haven't hugged my mum since this whole affair started so it's starting to drag me down a bit not really sure what to do to distract my self any more x

You don't have to run away from sad feelings, Mandy! Let them come, look at them and acknowledge them and let them tell you how you love your family or others. If you are afraid of drowning in sad feelings, use a timer to remind you about how long you can sit with these thoughts. Then take a walk, a run or whatever aferrward. The physical activiti will give you energy.

Most people are finding it harder since the coronavirus situation began, so you're not alone in how you feel. Indeed, when something like this changes the world and your lifestyle so dramatically, it's natural to feel sad/scared/anxious :)

It is okay and normal to feel sad. You may listen to good music if you have, but if you don't then listen online. One thing that would really help is for you yo exercise. According to studies exercise makes you happier. Also, you may do a hobby like cooking, baking, gardening, carpentry etc. You may also help someone who is in need. You may help even without spending money. Again, being sad is okay and normal. It is not permanent. It will go away.

That is good. You can even monetize your drawings. There are a lot of income opportunities for illustrators. In my facebook chat group alone there are illustrators who are earning from drawing children's book stories.
