Dear readers it’s Thursday once again. Hopefully this latest lot of antibiotics are working.
Covid 19 has really taken its toll on me, I’ve never been this ill for so long. I really want to get better and back to normal I really do.
I’m sure that other recovering Covid 19 sufferers feel exactly like I do. We can’t plan our weeks or even days.
Our immune systems are damaged making us susceptible to any other viruses out there, and of course there’s the possibility that we might be able to catch Covid 19 again.
This week sees the return to school for our children. The government doesn’t care about our childrens health and the health of our children. They don’t even care about the teachers, classroom assistants and staff.
Nope our children MUST return to school.
It’s easy for people to say that we should just keep our children off school and home educate. I’d do this if I could. I’ve always wanted to home educate my daughter.
Sadly I don’t have the knowledge to do do. I also can’t afford it. But I admire all parents that do home educate their children, they do a wonderful job.
You see my daughter wants to return to school. She misses her friends but she’s also apprehensive about her return.
It’s a huge worry. To say that I’m terrified of catching covid 19 again or any other virus.
I’m still recovering from covid 19 and another bout of pleurisy. My daughter deserves a mum that’s well and active again, not the person that I am now.
I do my best but I know that she’s been worried and upset about me being ill.
I feel like a complete failure even though I shouldn’t. Every day appears to be a struggle for me both physically and financially.
But I will recover many won’t.
I’m extremely worried about the parents and relatives of school age children that have disabilities and long term illness.
The ramifications of them contracting covid 19 are extremely serious but once again the government doesn’t care.
Personally I believe that it’s too soon for children to return to school, the pandemic hasn’t disappeared it’s still here infecting people.
Like I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts I realise that children do need educating but the government has given zero thought to their return.
This morning I was talking to a parent who’s child has already been sent home from school because they’re ill with possible covid symptoms.
I suspect that this will be happening to thousands of children up and down the country.
Will schools be shut again if lots of children, teachers and classroom assistants become ill?
What will the governments response be?
Also what will the oppositions response be also. So far from what I’ve seen and read Starmer is in agreement with the government, so he’s not exactly going to support us is he.
This only leaves us, as parents and educators to take it upon ourselves to make the right decision for our children.
If you decide that you want to home educate your children to keep them and your family members safe then go for it.
You know what is best for your children and there are plenty of support groups out there to help you.
If you decide that sending your children in school because it’s the right decision for you and your children do it.
You have to do what’s best for you and your family. I do urge you to have some kind of preventative protocol at home to prevent you and your loved ones safe.
Remember that it can take months to get over catching covid 19.
I really hope that you all keep safe and well, I don’t want you to be ill like I have been or worse.
I have however been helping people from the confines of my home.
I’ve signposted people and managed to get food for four families with the help of a local organisation.
I can’t stop caring about people, I just can’t. Hopefully I’ll be fully recovered soon.
Lots of love and solidarity to you all. Your support really means the world to me. I wouldn’t have been able to get through this without you all.
It’s been a long struggle for so many of us but we will conquer our struggles.
Please read, share and tweet my blog. This makes a massive difference and it raises so much awareness.
