In the past 2 years a lot of stuff has happened. Lost 2 people I loved who were really important to me - Aunt Sylvia and Mum. Husband diagnosed with heart failure and having to be in hospital for procedures for it twice. Then all his prostate problems (still ongoing) and the resultant repeated UTIs. I was found to have 25% hearing loss and given hearing aid. Finding out I have stage 2 liver disease (the 4th stage being cirrhosis). Having to get over my phobia of the dentist (well, get past it, I'll never get over it) and go to have 2 teeth out, having never had so much as a filling before. Having to have an abscess lanced in hospital, following the worst pain I've ever had. Suffering with anxiety, stress and panic attacks and having to take medication for it. Other serious life impacting problems I don't talk about on the blog, and a new health problem which I've just been referred to a specialist for. And all the coronavirus stuff.
I'm not asking for sympathy, loads of people have far worse problems and many have lost their loved ones to this terrible virus - 3 of my family members have had the virus but thankfully have all recovered. At least it's not affecting us financially (other than food prices going up), unlike thousands of people who are out of work, who must be worried sick.
It's just all overwhelmed me and i'm finding it hard to cope right now. I just take each day as it comes and make my way through it as best i can. We're all struggling right now - please, please look after each other and keep in touch and let your friends and family know you love them, you never know just how much someone may be struggling, or what is round the corner. Please stay safe x
