I am 72 and have asthma. I have an appointment I made a few weeks ago at the hairdressers. As things have escalated since then I am wondering whether to go?

If you are self isolating seems no point. If no one is going to see what you look like I suggest you cancel it.

My granddaughter has forbidden me to go as I might die!

I live in Spain and we can only go out to the food shop, pharmacy or hairdressers!!

Thanks Mrs1405. It is obviously an essential service so I may go!

Of course you should go, as long as your hairdresser is happy.
Morale boosting is important, and if you don't go now you may not be able to go for weeks, possibly months.

I've got an appointment at the hairdressers tomorrow at 9am. I'm going ' for me' to help boost my mood for the next few wks/months of incarceration !
