Good morning diary.
My father continues to make great strides in his ongoing recovery and now will have to enter a self isolation period.
I too will have to self isolate due to underlying health issues. TBH I am not really concerned about this. I have a job, i have an income, i have food in my fridge. For those reasons i feel humbled and in some ways inept as i am not in a position to help others.
People have no food, people have to face up to reduced or no income with a huge risk re holding onto a job.
These are unprecedented times.
My gambling count has now reached 1800 days. I am proud of that but also realisr i am one bet from disaster.
For me self isolation gives me the opportunity to re assess my food and alcohol intake and take steps to make myself as healthy as possible.
glad to hear your father is on the mend and glad to hear you are also looking out for yourself. I appreciate that sometimes it feels like you want to do more for others, but as they always say on airplanes - do your own oxygen mask first before you help others.
Huge congrats on 1800 days gamble free, you are an inspiration to all of us!
Wishing you continued strength and all the very best,
Today i feel grateful.
My son recently returned from Oz and met a family relation who was tested for the virus. Fortunately she tested negative.
Secondly my son has been retained in his job albeit at 60% wages.
I personally am struggling to cope with the negative comments and selfishness surrounding the virus
I will learn to deal with it.
