Dear readers I’m writing this blog post from my bed, I’m trying to put off the inevitable hospital visit that will have to happen if I get any worse.
I thought that I was getting better but sadly my daughter unknowingly has brought home a virus from school. The said virus is now having a good time rampaging through my body whilst making me feel dreadful.
I haven’t stopped coughing for two days now, my whole body hurts and I’m not capable of doing much. But I am trying to get better.
Covid 19 and other viruses are rife in my daughters school, children have tested positive and the school remains open.
There’s no way that any type of virus can be controlled in a school environment. It’s impossible, an endless task of trying to make the best out of a very bad situation.
I realise that all children need and deserve an education but it comes with a huge risk to other family members.
For anyone with a weakened immune system like mine and a compromised immune system regardless of the cause are being put at a huge risk of becoming ill with Covid 19 and other viruses.
It’s not a case of if we catch it, it’s more like when we will catch it.
I’m knackered, fed up and my body feels like it’s been in battle for a long time now.
I can’t stop coughing, my temperature is high again and I have to admit that I’m a tad scared.
You see I don’t know if I’ve caught covid again or if this is another evil virus piggy backing on top of my weakened immune system. I don’t want to be admitted to hospital again either. I just can’t win.
I have sent off another covid test and I should get the results soon. Sadly the tests aren’t reliable and have only a 70% rate of accuracy.
The area where I live will be being put in the level three category later today. Whilst I agree that this is needed it isn’t enough.
The government have so far offered no support to any of the businesses that will be affected by this. There’s zero real life support.
I agree that health comes before business, but people have to survive.
I also agree that the whole country should be put into an at least two week lockdown and real life working track and trace systems put in place locally to monitor the situation.
We can’t rely upon the government to devise any system that would work properly in the best interests of the public. All that they’re interested in are making their friends rich.
I also believe that schools should be shut for a short period of time and all schools should be given a deep clean to get rid of any viruses etc.
When our children return stricter measures should be put in place and more home schooling implemented temporarily.
We need to keep out teachers safe as well.
None of what I say is easy but we can’t continue like we have been doing. I’m ill because of a virus brought home from school.. Can you imagine how many people could die as a result of this?
Not one decision is going to make everyone happy but we need to control this virus. It’s the government’s lack of taking correct action is why we are in this situation now.
Please keep safe, I’ll update my blog and social media as soon as I get my results or if I have to go to hospital.
It’s been a struggle for me and thousands of other people but we need to get rid of this virus.
Please read, share and tweet my blog.

I don’t get paid for anything that I do and every penny really helps both myself and the campaign.
I’m not able to get out so everything is so much more expensive.
A huge thank you to everyone that supports my campaign and blog. I really do appreciate it. It means the world to me
