I’ve been on lockdown since Saturday and I’m generally quite a calm person. I live alone and suffer from COPD which has been quite well controlled since I was prescribed a new inhaler. I work and,TBH, have no real financial worries. I’m now off work for 12 weeks on full pay.
I’m nearly off my head with stress. My breathing is all wonkie and I feel as though I’m always five minutes away from a panic attack. This is not who I am and I don’t know how to deal with it. I’ve never felt so frightened and helpless. My children are falling ill around me and there is nothing I can do.
I’m just waiting for the government, in line with best Trumpian practice, to ask me to sacrifice myself on the altar of Some billionaires profit margin.
