“I have taken to listening to the daily COVID updates. I’ve watched the numbers of infected rise slowly from zero to more and more again. Our safe world in Sydney has been shaken and we have retreated to lockdown to curb the spread. I have found it unsettling watching regular news updates and hearing people speak of what the Government could be doing or should be doing or looking for someone to blame for this recent outbreak. Last year’s strange, discombobulated feelings and mild panic have returned.
So, many plans have been thwarted. Holidays, interstate travel, time on the Great Barrier Reef, weddings, large family gatherings and more. And then there are the funerals that very few can attend. We have returned to working from home and meeting with others via zoom.
What has helped me since we have returned to living and working at home?”
