I work in a major hospital, my dept are staggering shifts and alternating days or weeks between being at work or working from home. I am rarely in contact with anyone, I live alone and have an office to myself at work. We get daily updates about the number of tests and cases. Things will soon get really bad and that scares me, not for me personally, just how bad it will be, the physical, emotional and mental health of ED and ICU staff, and how many people will die.
As bad as things are in Europe and the US, I’m concerned about Australia because we are heading into Winter. I don’t see how things will improve before September at the earliest. I wish we had live sport to keep us entertained through this.
I will no doubt watch everything on Netflix and Stan. I will probably sign up for Prime for a couple months too. I plan to get lots of sleep, try to start eating more fruit and veggies, do some exercise at home and lose some weight.
One of my biggest concerns is my superannuation, it WAS going so well. The economy will be obliterated, this will take the world many years to recover from. But I consider myself relatively lucky, I feel for so many people that have a lot of uncertainty and anxiety right now due to their personal circumstances.
