You are not alone in this! I live by myself and my family are all in another country 12 hours away. But as long as we are staying healthy and positive we will see our family and friends again, and obvi you will have a partner eventually if that’s what you want. Boost your immune system and let go of fear because fear is an illusion. You are goooood :)

Ugh so sorry OP ... I think those are normal thoughts, my husband and I have thought about what happens to our daughter (15, but a young 15) if we get sick and taken to hospital ... who will help her through this? Family 200 miles away ... I think it's normal, but we can only take care of ourselves and avoid risk. If we start to obsess, time to ask for help. Hugs and best wishes ❤️

Must be really hard, loneliness is absolutely terrible. Have you tried keeping in touch with friends? I started using houseparty recently and reconnecting with people, even if it’s a 5min chat is incredibly helpful. Have you shared your worries with a close friend? Even if you ask them to check up on you every day until you feel comfortable?
