So my lockdown begins

so i got home this afternoon. i’m home now for at least 2 weeks, could be longer, doubt this lockdown is gonna be short, i think it will go on for at least six to 8 weeks. it may not but i’m pretty sure its gonna. i am making sure i have loads to keep me occupied during the time at home. especially loads of books. i’m also going to blog a lot, so get ready for an explosion of posts from here…lol. i need you all to keep me sane! I really really need support. I am not used to being cooped up in the house for so long. I am used to going out and being out and about. It is going to be hard to stay home. Thank god I also have netflix and the tv and radio and music. This is going to just be a crazy few weeks I am sure. I might not even get to see anyone on my birthday which is in 3 weeks time. My big 40th. That will suck, if that is the case. I’ll just have to celebrate it with all of my wp family and my online friends. Are ya all ready for a party? We’ll have to break out the music and party the day away. lol. Really though this lockdown is going to test me. I wish it wasnt happening! I mean dont worry I know we have to, I understand that its to help us to stop the spread of coronavirus, butoh man! I am going to just go nuts. Someone needs to give me some sugestions for things to do to stay busy. Thank goodness I have work, now that this lockdown happened I am glad I dont have this week off of work. Work is my saving grace. It keeps me busy and I have other people to focus on other than myself and my own needs. And thank god for Eileen and dr. barry. I have a session with eileen tomorrow morning. I cant wait. I am so looking forward to it. She just emailed me the zoom link a few minutes ago. I’m planning on staying awake late tonight. No point is going to bed early, when I can sleep now whenever I want, I dont have to rise and shine at a certain hour of the day. Is that a good or a bad thing? Lol.

we’re Now On Complete lockdown

Our government said last night we’re on complete lockdown now. We’re restricted from going 2 kilometres outside of our home to walk, only essential workers are allowed to go to work, we’re only allowed out to buy essential food or medications.
I knew this was coming, it was only a matter of time before they implemented it. I suppose its necessary to stop the spread of the virus, but it sure does make life difficult.
I had gone to my parents house for the weekend, so now I have to find a way to get home, well I think public transport is still running, although its scaled back a lot now.
I’ll wait now until tomorrow to go home. But once I do, I’ll be in the house for the next two weeks, and I am positive it will go on for longer than that.
Its a scary time for all of us.

We’re in lockdown now!

Well it has happened! We are now officially in lockdown!

The government made an announcement early this evening.

All schools are closed, they said until April 19th, but I’m pretty sure it will be for longer than that.

We’re not allowed to gather in groups of more than 4 people!

All non essential businesses are closed! Restaurants, cafe’s, everything is shut down!

Grocery stores are staying open, but we arent allowed to go out unless its absolutely essential.

They said we’re in this for the long haul. This could go on for months is what they said.

There is a law now that if your in a taxi, you have to sit in the back seat. You cant sit in the front.

Police are on the streets, manning the public parks, and other amenities.

I’ll be staying home, not gonna go to my parents. My PA said she’s still working, and unless that changes, I’ll be staying put.

I need access to good wifi, to do therapy, and my conference calls for slimming world.

So thats where things are at. I am anxious, very, very anxious. My anxiety has hit an entirely new level.

The only thing we can do now is sit tight, and wait, wait for this to pass, and as our local media here keeps saying, it will pass. It wont go on forever.

What day is it anyway? Tuesday March 24th

My day so far 3:22 PM!
I didnt get much sleep last night, maybe got about 2 hours, that was it. Surprisingly though I am not at all tired from lack of sleep!
My PA came this morning at 9 AM, and we took Nitro out for a walk. We walked for an hour. I felt so amazing when I arrived home. I think walking has really helped to boost my mood!
Other than my walk with Nitro, I havent done much today. A friend visited for an hour, it was nice to see her.
The plans for the evening are to chill with a book, watch some netflix and facetime with my friend sarah.
Are you having a good day?
Our governement is meant to make an announcement this afternoon about restrictions that are set to be put in place in ireland. Already they’ve said that schools will remain closed after March 29th, and all restaurants and cafes are to close their doors today. As for what else will be put in place, we’ll just have to wait and see what they’ll say.
I’ve decided though now that if we do go on complete lockdown today I’m staying here at home. I had a rethink, and it will be better if I stay at home. Especially so I can do my therapy sessions with eileen, and my conference calls with my slimming world group, and also working from my home is better than trying to work from my parents house.
I hope your all having a great day!

If we go into complete lockdown

Here in ireland our government is talking about putting the country into a complete lockdown, its being decided tomorrow what they will do. If we do go into lockdown, I’ve decided that I will go to my parents house for the foreseeable future, until this is all over. I am safer there. And it would be really difficult for me to get food, meds etc if we go into lockdown because my PA’S wouldnt be working, and I’d have nobody to go to the store for me or who could take me. The reason we have to go into lockdown is because this past weekend our beaches, public parks and walk ways were packed with people, people arent taking the social distancing seriously, they are treating the pandemic as if they wont catch the virus, and so why bother taking precautions? Its really selfish of them considering there are many vulnerable people, elderly people, sick people and people who need to avoid catching it at all costs. So this is why now our government is having an emergency meeting tomorrow to put a plan in place. God knows how long the lockdown will go on for when it starts, as our head of government said last week, this is a storm, it will come, and when it does we need to be ready. I am thankful I have somewhere safe to go. I am thankful I have my parents still. Its times like this when I know how lucky I am to have the support of family.
