Living rurally, and 160km from my nearest friends, not having the spoons to travel, plus being a semi-carer, PLUS COVID - I have zero in person social life, or leisure activities that take me off the property.

I know that being hyper-connected is a bit much for some people but, for me, it is de-isolating.

And the people I connect with can bring me so much joy. Obviously starting with you lot, and my networks on Twitter and Insta, but also the people I work with/for.


@e4 🖤 Thanks, and this is exactly what I am talking about! Here is the best support network ever, And it's global! I've lost count of the countries with which I am in regular contact. My global "Pocketfam," as one friend cslls it, is the best!
