I thought I should let you all know that I'm taking a break from GN for a while in the interests of my own mental health.
All the negative emotions of grief and loneliness have combined with stress and anxiety over the wretched CV19 and I find I'm going around in circles, reading endless opinions and speculations and some facts and I am becoming incoherent and irrational much of the time. I have also turned off my radio for 23 out of 24 hours because that's just another source of stress-inducing white noise.
For some reason, these things are almost addictive but I know they're not doing me any good so I am going to get some counselling and try to have a few weeks of calm reflection signed out of all my social media haunts.
I need to grieve; I need to get my head straight and, I hope, when I've done that, I'll be back. So many of you have been so kind and supportive during the past few weeks and I'm truly grateful for your friendship. I know many of you have much worse problems than me and I can only wish you all well and hope for a virus-free future for us all, very soon.
