I work in community pharmacy, full time. I'm tired, emotional and scared.
I have an eighty year old dad, living nearby. We lost my beautiful mum in September to cancer and dementia.
I'm in continuous, daily contact with poorly people. We have been told that we should fully expect to contract or carry coronavirus.
We have my dad over for dinner or we go to him at least two or three times a week, with visits and popping in at other times.
I have siblings an hour or two away, who have barely visited dad since mum died.
I feel overwhelmed and don't know if I should stay away from dad, to protect him. My husband has said he will ship for him. The thought that I might have hugged him for the last time is making me so sad. You never know when it's the last time.
I don't expect any answers, I'm just sharing.
Stay safe, everyone. X
