I agree Dan. We're all very open and mutually supportive at my workplace and two of my colleagues are acknowledging real mental health issues with WFH. Both are, by nature, very gregarious, which I'm sure plays a part in their cases.

Suits me down to the ground, mind - one of my colleagues called me 'the Bear Grylls of isolation' because I'm temperamentally really comfortable with it. Which probably means I'm an antisocial bastard with lots of strategies for wasting time.
Yep, that figures. I'm reasonably happy in my own space but I've been consulting for near enough 10 years now (WTF?) and I've really come to enjoy the face to face side. I'm not particularly extroverted I don't think, but I do genuinely enjoy going places, meeting people, lunches, dinners etc. I find it's great for building relationships but also just good fun.

For me daily video calls with my team are essential. My boss has returned to the office today, but won't be full time. I think he felt like he needed to show his face as a senior manager, rather than actually needing to be on site, possibly a bit of pressure from above.

Similar to what Throb has said, he's a very outgoing and social person and has been struggling with the remote working to some extent.

I think for me now with there being no formal return date it feels never ending to some extent, that I'm probably struggling with a bit. As the days go on I feel like I want to be in the office maybe a couple of days a week.

Also, since I've moved my lockdown location I've only spent one night at home every 2 weeks for the past 2 months. I think that's getting to me a bit. 

Yeah, it's all just dragging a LOT now. It certainly doesn't help that a lot of the niceness of WFH isn't here, either. Before lock down my kid had just started school and the wife and I had started doing some nice lunches and stuff which was working for me!

Unlikely I'll be back in the office till schools go back in August. Have sort of offered to go in for a few half days for some training and whatnot, but the pressure is really on us from higher up to get everyone back in the office and making money. They seem to have missed the bit where the rest of our industry is on its arse and also mostly working from home, so whether we're there or not there's not much to be done.

I'm quite a bit sick of lock down - i had a proper breakdown* when they confirmed schools here are shut till August - but I'm also really nervous/anxious about going back in to the office. 


*drank all the booze and spent the thick end of a grand on a drone to play with >.< On the plus side the drone has really made me get off my arse and get out and about more, been out on a few big walks with it that I otherwise wouldn't have, both with family and on my own. Climbing up a hill at sunset on your own is very mind clearing.

If Feds call you and say something bad on me, it may prove what I said are truth, they are afraid of it.

Post some footage. I find drones fascinating but also scary as a creative tool, kind of like cgi - overpowering and dehumanizing (because of the alien perspective).*


*IOW, never played with one.

This was first 'proper' flight somewhere nice. 

No idea what I'm doing when it comes to flying, filming, editing or colour grading yet. As you can tell  :-O~~~
