Living with CP in a time of Covid

How is everyone bearing up? I’m doing my best to remain up beat and doing my exercises everyday. It is part of the human condition to feel scared. I know I’m scared of Covid. The past six months have been really hard and the only people I am seeing in person is my parents. We decided to suspend my carers because the risk of Covid was too much. I have been shielding for 16 weeks and continue to do so with some flexibility. I am lucky because I got a priority shopping slot with ASDA pretty quickly and I can work at home for my PhD. I am also able to tutor my first years online . COVID has made home working common place which is good for my future prospects. I have felt lonely and isolated during Covid as the human interactions that I had have drastically reduced for example going to art group, having a conversation with my taxi driver on the way to university, going to the cafe. It’s not until you lose these little things that you realise they are so important. I have found that keeping in touch with friends and family via zoom and social media , tight knit family support and an exercise routine and activities such as adult colouring has helped. How are you all getting on ? Feel free to share your tips below.
