A back to back. With lockdown easing and shops in the UK open, fast forward and my attention turns to me getting back into my life, after lockdown.
I don’t agree with the lockdown being eased, particularly as we’re already seeing spikes. Countries like New Zealand who were 24 days clear of the virus, now have two cases. Where it’s not on other people’s radar, with autism it’s on my radar all the time.
I am not sure how getting back into my own life being ‘high risk’ will go. I hope talking and writing about it, will help me come to terms with it better. Yes, we have a ‘new normal’ but being high risk and not understanding how the virus mutates is making me feel nervous.
With cerebral palsy, respiratory issues and autism, which is responsible for how I deal with my life on a daily basis, I am struggling to get my head around my life after covid. Where I think I have, the UK government throws in a curve ball.
If certain governments in charge of handling the pandemic put themselves in our shoes for just one day, they’d change the way they’re handling the pandemic. These are people’s lives they’re playing with.
On social media, no matter how many times we tweet something out, our tweets go unheard and our voices drowned out by their rhetoric. I can handle most things, but I find their lies staggering, with lives still being lost and excuses being made.
