Q. How does Covid continue to affect you and your family?
So far we’ve managed to dodge Covid, although I expect we will catch it at some point. I’m now vaccinated with my booster, so I am less likely to suffer from the worst of it if I were to catch it. However this particular morning I was feeling unwell and as a precaution have had a PCR test. As a solo parent who has lost a partner, this situation only feeds my anxiety. It is hard enough when there are two parents and someone is unwell. As a result of our circumstances I’ve had to teach my children independence. They are able to open tins, toast bread and even cook simple meals. I do however worry about becoming very unwell. This plays on my mind often. I’m not in a position where I can always stay warm or at times feed ourselves the most nourishing meals. In all likelihood I will remain healthy. But, but, but always lingers in the back of my mind.
