Q. What haven't you told us yet, which feels important to you?
I feel I have coped very well throughout the pandemic, definitely better through the initial lockdown than the subsequent ones (particularly winter). I’m fortunate that I haven’t experienced major illness and the pain of losing loved ones, but this pandemic has certainly been a trauma. I have been scarred in ways I didn’t realise at the time. I have suffered unbelievable loneliness as a single parent of 3 kids. I haven’t had the emotional support I would have appreciated. I have dealt with changing jobs during a pandemic, working from home and home schooling 3 children - alone. I am paying for therapy to help me get my head around this past 18 months and process an experience I never realised at the time was as traumatic as it has proven to be.
