Every day at this time people are feeling trapped, in their own homes, the feeling of their liberties is taken away.
All because of the disease COVID 19. Which I wrote a post on Keeping Your Distance To Stay Safe
At the time of writing this post, there is no cure at the moment. And there is a great possibility there may never be one.
Thus meaning our ways of living are going to be changed forever. However, right now we are just bumbling along trying to survive personally and as a human race. Each country has there own way of dealing with what is going and here in the Uk, there has been a slight division between England and the rest of the Uk so it is more difficult to decide on which bit of information to make your own decision on what you should do.
So being disabled the same rules apply as before meaning we have to stay indoors.
The rest of the people who can work from home must do so and those who can not, go to work in their office and get there either by cycling or walking if possible or by car if needed but not by public transport unless necessary and wear masks. And this is compulsory. Although when I wrote this originally it was not the case.
This on top of the things that companies have to do to ensure that their staff is safe. For now, this also means that any of the retail and entertainment sectors are closed unless they are online or they have to follow stricter guidelines. Which is difficult as they bring in a lot of money to the country as does the tourism sector. Which has also been severely damaged by what has happened.
All the schools were closed for most pupils except key workers. Although they are open in staggard stages rather than all the children at once now and the kids have to wear masks outside and traveling
The problem I am seeing personally is that there are still people who will take things to their own hands and put pressure on the frontline services which are the health and food industries.
It is a shame because if things are followed as if they were meant to be then life may get back to some kind of normality. Things will never be fully the same again and we will have to change our lifestyles and the way we do things.
The feeling of being trapped in the house is very strong for everyone because of what is happening. Although there are more freedoms or changes to it.
All these changes came so quickly, that many are struggling to find structure while missing friends and family as well.
Being social animals humans are on the whole this is the biggest issue as we can't hug anyone outside our own house and we can only stand 2m away from people who we can see individually.
So with family members in different houses, we can't touch. Which is another form of isolation! And that is difficult especially as hugs are an important form of feeling well.
The things I am missed the most was seeing my friends and family as well as going to the salon and beauty shop as these are things that I find necessary as I cant do these things. At the time of originally writing this, I couldn't go to the salon for certain beauty treatments that people can do for themselves. But since then I have been able to go.
What are you missing if anything?
