What are your reflections from a year like no other?: "i found it difficult at the beginning of lockdown in NI in March with limited technology and no wifi to do the home schooling. The lack of resources and the school my children attended not being very accommodating I found it very stressful and sometimes difficult to cope with.

CoVid Christmas was a nightmare as I still havrnt seen my children after testing positive on Dec 23rd. I was so careful and antibaced and wore a mask and washed my hands and barely left the house and yet the virus still found me. I waa so breathless I was concerned I may have ended up in hospital but thankfully I did not. I am still isolating but there will be long term effects as I am still suffering with tiredness and breathlessness. I feel like Im 90 NOT 41. Its a very strange feeling. I am also desperate to see my children again."
