I have just read some terribly upsetting news from The Independent newspaper which, over time, I have tended to trust. It’s that the elderly and vulnerable such as myself may have to isolate for 12 months.
To me, this is unbelievable and gutting, as I’m sure it will be to anyone else in my situation. I am naturally an extrovert so get my energy from connecting with others. How am I going to cope with this one?
My first thought was to scour the ads papers and try to find a dog to be with me during this time. But in the cold light of day, perhaps isn’t the be my best idea.
Now my attention turns to my family. My three teen kids and my ageing parents. Still processing. Not sure that my brain can deal with this. More Later.
