As we were entering 2020, I was convinced that this was going to be a great year. I don’t think I have ever been so wrong about something in my life.
I’m fed up of seeing so many people trying to play this pandemic down. Constantly being told that I’m overreacting, I’m scared right now and I think that’s pretty understandable. Everyone in the world is experiencing something like never before. Everyone is going to deal with is differently because we don’t really know what to expect. Everything that is happening right now is going to have such a massive effect on our lives going forwards. Life is going to change forever.
I wish I could spend the next few weeks/months self isolating with my husband. I wish we had more control but we just don’t. Both my husband and I are key workers which means we are an important part of keeping the country running. It means that we will have to continue working throughout this pandemic, potentially being exposed to Covid-19 and that terrifies me. We are constantly surrounded by other people and more often than not we are within 2 meters of another person.
It’s obvious that not everyone is going to act the same way throughout this. There are people who don’t see it as a major thing, which is fine, but will continue to ignore the social distancing or go out of their house continuously/have people round. No matter what your opinion is of Covid-19, STAY HOME! Why would you want to risk your health and the health of others? Don’t take the chance and follow the government advice. The sooner we all do what we need to in order to help the situation,hopefully, the sooner this will all be over.
My hands are sore from constantly soaking them in hand sanitizer, my anxiety is through the roof and this is all having a massive effect on my mental health. It’s hard to stay positive during a time of so much uncertainty. I think we can all say that we have taken the life we have for granted and I can’t wait to have it back. The world is going to change forever.
