Monday 23rd to Tuesday 24th March
I got my text on Monday identifying me as ‘extremely vulnerable’ and at risk of severe illness.
‘Please remain at home for a minimum of 12 weeks’
I had another 3 texts from them on Tuesday about various things.
The country is now in a 3 week lockdown, people shouldn’t be leaving their houses unless for a really valid reason, but a lot of people don’t seem to be taking much notice of this, I think the fact that we’re having some nice weather at the moment hasn’t helped at all, and the numbers are rising 😖
Over the last week or so it has been a nightmare in our house trying to avoid touching things that Robyn and Leah have already touched as you go about your normal day. And then to avoid touching your eyes and mouth or anything else until you’ve washed your hands. You do things automatically and now we all need to stop and think.
Robyn has finished work now to reduce the risk of bringing the virus home and Leah has gone to stay with her boyfriend for a while, both to help to protect me (I feel VERY guilty and upset about this). Leah works in pharmacy so she needs to keep working throughout and is in a high risk place of possibly catching the virus as it is just so extremely busy there, constant queues, with everyone wanting to get their medications.
It’s so upsetting for us all being apart at this scary time.
They also have their dad to worry about too. He’s had a kidney transplant so they have both of their parents on the ‘extremely vulnerable’ list 😱
