Like a lot of you with parents in their seventies or eighties—a high risk group—who are now deciding if it's safe to visit, I don't know when I'm going to see Mum and Dad again.
Older people are the ones that are really being touched.
So yeah, stastically, I'm probably going to be fine. So are you. Especially if, like me, you're madly hand sanitising all the time!
But we're not doing this for us, and I know there's someone special in your life you're doing this for.
So I'm doing social isolation for my family, my parents.
They're why I've cancelled everything in my diary for the next year. Literally. I won't be going out. My husband and I are going to order a lot of takeaway—healthy choices, yes—and support local businesses.
That’s how we’re going to come through this and just love who we’ve become.
Who knows when I get to hug Mum again, but I know every single day of coronavirus and self isolating I'm going to live my life thinking about how I can take care of someone around me.
That's how we're going to come through this and just love who we've become.
