This week I'm FINALLY taking care of myself properly. I've been to the dentist twice and booked a hair appointment, something I haven't done in over a year. Wow, in a way I didn't realise how badly I neglected myself until now. The back log of appointments due to lockdown means waiting an incredibly long time to get seen, and even in urgent circumstances people were not being seen to. While this is understandable it has left people feeling neglected and in many ways probably made their mental health worse. I feel more positive now than I have done in the past 16 months but I'm still taking life day by day, because no one knows what tomorrow will bring. I hope and pray this pandemic subsides soon.
