Bubbles and mental health

Many like myself live alone and their partners or those closest to them do not live with them, due to work or distance etc. Please continue to allow us these bubbles and to stay within our new extended households. And allow us to travel between them. As I live in Dundee and my partner Aberdeen. Mental health needs to be brought to the front and leaked documents and daily threats of a new lockdown bare their toll on those who have suffered, especially alone, and knowing we can keep these shared households would be of great benefit and reassurance.

    Agree with this. It be good if the bubble and extended household could be explained more clearer and more often. I am being harassed and bullied by a few people because I visit my partner in his house and getting told that I am not allowed to use my Boyfriend but that I have to use family which I cannot do

    I agree. I have been able to form an extended household with my partner who does not stay in the same part of Scotland as me and at the moment this is the only thing keeping me sane. I am currently going through counselling for depression and think if this was to be taken away with travel restrictions it would hit a lot of people in the same situation very hard.

    Totally agree. I don’t live with my partner but if I couldn’t see him it would be the last straw for my fragile mental health. I could see me taking up a hospital bed along side lots of other people at the very end of their limits. I’ve been following all the measures, working since June each week in a key worker post. Please don’t take away the one thing I have left.

    absolutely, bubbles should extend not only to those who live alone but for all families :)
    2 maybe 3 family bubbles, maybe that way people wont just break the rules and visit anyone and eveyone they can
