Coronavirus Diary – Page 11 (Accessible Social Distancing)

I think it is very fair to say that the world we left before lockdown is not the same as the world that we are coming out to. Tragically so many people have been effected by Coronavirus. It is devastating to think what has happened to so many people and their loved ones. I think…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 10 (Looking to the future)

A few friends have been asking me what I am looking forward to when the lockdown is over. The truth is, just normal every day life. I want that back so much, but here is a list of things that I can’t wait to get back. Freedom – I can’t wait to be able to…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 8 (Explosion of emotions)

During the lockdown I have had so many different emotions going on inside my head. The other day somebody on TV said that her emotions during the lockdown had been really extreme. She said she has been really up or really down, there has been no middle ground. I didn’t realise until then, but I…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 7 (A tough week)

Week nine already?  In some ways the weeks seem to be flying by, but then when I think about the last time things felt normal, it feels like so long ago.  Things started to change slightly last week, the lockdown has eased a little.  This is really good, but also very complicated and confusing.  At…

Transfusion to Fusion

Growing up I was never really into trying new things. I liked the food I liked and that was that. Trying new things was scary. Horrible tastes, smells and textures and if I didn’t already like it, the chances were I wouldn’t like it. I was no where near as fussy as some children, there…

Coronavirus Diary – Page 5 (Staying mentally well)

As you may have read on some of my previous posts, I have been really struggling mentally with the lockdown. I know that this isn’t easy for anyone, but when you have difficulties with your mental health, or even if you have in the past, then this is an extremely overwhelming time. I would just…
