Ask Jigsaw: Covid ruins everything

Thursday, 24 September 2020

I keep wanting to go on holidays but when COVID struck it ruins everything and I really miss traveling and really just want to have sleep overs with my friends but because of that darn COVID I can’t I’m oisin and I’m 12 years old and I have adhd


Hi Oisin,

Thank you for being honest about how you are feeling. Without a doubt, the current situation is really tough. It has put limits on many things that we used to take for granted.

Dealing with disappointment

You are not on your own with feelings of disappointment as a result of Covid. In fact, there are so many people experiencing similar, we wrote this article about ways to cope with the feelings.  Being able to talk about how you feel, as you have done here is a great start.

Although it’s hard to make plans, we need to remember that there will come a time when we can get back to doing the things we want, like holidays and sleepovers. Hold onto that hope that things will get better.

In the mean time, think about whether there are others activities that you can safely plan that will give you a little lift.

Take care of yourself Oisin.

Best wishes,


Jigsaw clinician
