Many of us miss normal life, we miss our friends and we miss travel for eight months into the coronavirus pandemic.
A dad who admitted to 'feeling rock bottom' during lockdown has been flooded with messages of support.

Edmund O’Leary, 51, father-of-two, who has been unemployed for 18 months and is divorced went viral after tweeting 'I am not ok' "Feeling rock bottom. Please take a few seconds to say hello if you see this tweet. Thank you." on Friday night.

His heartbreaking message was inundated with words of encouragement, pictures, and offers to chat from across the world.

The tweet has now over 100,000 replies and 300,000 likes.
Edmund appeared on ITV's This Morning to discuss his tweet and the aftermath and revealed that the response has been 'phenomenal' and in an interview with The Sunday Times he said he wanted to 'be honest' on social media about how he was feeling.
He added: "This year has been absolutely horrendous. My mental health has really taken a battering.
