What has been the most challenging part of Covid-19?
There is no one thing that is hardest about this time. Uncertainty about tomorrow and the future is right up there. Not being able to travel to see my kids and grandchildren is also big. My son Teddy and his wife Rachel are due any day. When will I hold that baby? It’s hard for us not seeing friends, family and going out but it is much harder on many many other people and families.
The pain and economic uncertainty are troubling.
What has given you strength/ are there any unexpected positives from this time?
I struggle to find an upside or positives. I’ve learned I’m less of an introvert than I thought. I miss my friends. There are beautiful stories of people doing amazing things for others which is uplifting. All in all I think we are in this for the long haul so perhaps there are more lessons to learn.
Who do you wear a mask for?
I guess first off I wear the mask for my own protection but also for the sake of all the many health care workers. They don’t need me getting sick and adding to their work load.
