I'm living in Sydney and struggling with this covid.
Is anyone else struggling and feeling annoyed at this lockdown ??
Take care Laura. It is causing a lot of anxiety for us . I'm very grateful this BH site has given me something useful to do as hopefully will be back at work next month , Staying connected does help with feeling isolated so its good you are using this site as a tool. Thanks to everyone :)
Hi again Laura - glad you came back into the forums here. I am originally from Sydney and my family all live there and I know they are fed up with lockdown. I can well understand how you would all be feeling though.
I moved to Qld 17 years ago and we have had some lockdown but not for the periods that you and Vic have. I can imagine how hard it would be for anyone. I know one of my granddaughters just started school this year and for the majority of it, she is at home with my daughter trying to home school her, which is so hard for her.
You have come to the right place here at BH because it will keep the mind occupied and there are plenty of members willing to help and chat here. There is also a thread called Lift Esteem whiich does wonders for people that have things worrying them or just need some hugs too.
I do hope covid ends soon so you can get out of lockdown :-)
Hi Laura, fellow Sydneysider here.
I've had my moments of anxiety, annoyance, frustration & upset with this lockdown. I'll also add boredom to the list as I've been feeling that way recently, plus uncertainty is something that does my anxious brain in, so I'll also add that as well. I'm in one of the LGA's that can't go more than 5km outside of their suburb & as such have felt the walls closing in a bit at times.
I'm more than ready for this lockdown to be over - especially since I'm double-vaccinated & champing at the bit to enjoy certain freedoms - although I can't imagine how Victorians must be feeling with all of their lockdowns etc. I wish COVID would go do one altogether, but I feel like it's here to stay in some capacity.
I have hope that better treatments & more vaccines coming onto the market in the years to come will help, but for now I just have to cross my fingers & hope that we get to both the 70% & 80% fully vaccinated levels by October. I can't see us going beyond 85% fully vaccinated; not until children can be vaccinated & until people get the splinters out of their butts & decide to get a vaccine (don't even get me STARTED on anti-vax folk or I'll get angry).
I guess what has kept me sane during this time is plenty of podcasts, baking, cooking, music, TV, trying to keep as connected as possible to my loved ones (although it is difficult given none of them live in Sydney), exercise where I can & when I have the motivation (I did sign up for a free 30 day trial of an online exercise program but have given up as so many of the beginners exercises require equipment I don't have nor can run out & get), decluttering of things I no longer need nor want....you've just got to find ways of distracting yourself from the tedium of every day. I admit it hasn't been easy - have found myself doom-scrolling more than I should this week - but when I am distracted the days go faster. Hope that helps you Laura.
Thoughts are with those in NSW and Vic.
I live in Qld so have been fortunate not to have been in a long lockdown. I have friends in NSW and Vic and try and keep in touch with them regularly.
Try and stay positive, there is light at the end of the tunnel...
Fellow Sydneysiders here. I am a self confessed introvert who loves time at home, and even I am now finding it really dragging on and over it. I miss my family and friends and living a worry free life of going wherever I want whenever.
I'm not double vaxxed yet (had first dose a few weeks ago) and bit of a wait until the second, so finding it hard seeing so many people on picnics and not being able to join them for a while or see my parents who I miss terribly. I got an appointment as soon as I was eligible but I also had surgery in there which delayed it a bit.
I'm trying to focus on what I do like in lockdown, working from home, lunches with my partner, reading, sleeping in, becoming more of a domestic goddess as I know there will be things I miss too.
For many years I have had severe allergic reaction to normal hair colour that contains ammonia and peroxide.
I had good results both with niacinamide and vitamin C in the past, and I like using them both in my morning routine, but I'm not a fan of layering several products.
I loved this. I have dry hair but wow this changed it. It hydrated and moisturized my hair, it made it smell so nice and fresh. It gave my hair a shine.
