    It’s okay @BubblesGoesBoo and @Aidan

    I hope this thread can provide some comfort - for me I work with elderly residents so my worry is passing it onto them rather than getting it myself so I find it helpful to find myself that as long as I follow my Workplaced , NHs and PHE guidance then I’m doing all I can to prevent that

    I work with people who are in care, some of them need around the clock support. I know they will be fine if I have to leave work (I just run workshops and teach life-skills) but I'm worried about them and the support workers who will have to be isolated with them if it comes to that.

    There haven't been any cases in the town I live in yet, but waiting for it to come here... I don't like that feeling.

    Thank you @Millie2787 this is really important!

    I would just really emphasise to make sure that you only read from reputable sources - mainly the NHS or gov websites. There's a lot of scaremongering and inaccurate information being thrown around especially on social media. 

    Stay safe <3

    Concerts and mass gatherings may be close to being cancelled but let’s remember all of these things we still have :)

    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley
