After weeks of distancing, I just wondered how everyone was coping with all the changes going on at the moment? I have found it quite a mental challenge: mostly due to people believing the rules don’t apply to them and not wearing masks or keeping their distance. I had to take the tube to a hospital appointment, which was fine as public transport wasn’t that busy and the majority of people were wearing masks. However, one middle-aged lady didn’t have a mask on, who was sitting opposite me, I asked if she couldn’t due to her health and she told me that she chose not to as she was not being told what to do by biological terrorists!! Yet she sanitised her hands every five minutes! Her attitude really upset me and still plays on my mind.
That meeting left me thinking about my brother in law who has kidney failure and a compromised immune system and I can now see why he is not eager to leave home. Your health is reliant on others following the rules. Anyone else feel anxious about all the change we’re being hit with? What helps you cope and keep calm?
