So, when an assistant head teacher in a primary school; a diagnosis of follicular lymphoma, previous shielding and a positive case of Covid of one of your students all come together In the same building, it’s really not a great place to be! Yes, I’m being safe, yes I’m socially distancing and yes, work has things in place but does that stop the complete panic that has now started in my head? NO!
For me it brings up lots of issues. My panic and mental well being, my husbands and my children’s. Then add on to that the expectation that you still go to work, that you’re still expected to be in a building where another case is of COVID is imminent and that you’re expected to do your job in a really stressful environment, it can only go one way - into that place of lack of control, sleepless nights, trying to act like you’re ok because you have a job, a house and children to look after.
So, with that in mind I was just wondering what other people have experienced. It may be a colleague that tested positive, your own child or someone in their school. Whatever the situation I’d really love to hear from you about how you are managing X
