Today is day 20 of my lockdown. I have been stuck inside for 3 weeks now. It is day 13 of quarantine and soon I would normally be allowed out, however, because of my health conditions I am stuck inside till lockdown is completely lifted. Even then I probably would be stuck inside. My only connection to the outside world is currently the internet and people watching.
It is easter and this is the first time I will be on my own with no easter eggs and no means of getting one 😦 However, I am starting to live stream church services which is helpful so that I will be able to listen in and continue following my faith
I am thankful for all the angels that have been there to help me and continue to survive 🙂 They are blessed 🙂
Today has been difficult. I went out for my walk and realised I may be doing worse for myself by going out every day. I don’t think I can have a walk a day and now am worried about what my health is going to be like when this is all over. I have to exercise because otherwise my health will get worse especially my back condition but at the same time I am not getting any support to do the right things.
I have also started to worry about finance. Because I have to stay in my flat alone for a minimum of 3 months I need to buy more food. Usually I would top up once a month as I would be spending some time in London with my family when I had to work in London which I cant do now. Am I going to have enough to survive a whole month. Been trying to see if I was eligible for benefits to help with the increased costs associated for being at home all the time but the website is soooo slow.
I am now starting to worry.
I am asking for an urgent call out to the world both citizens, politicians and businesses. Australia has been hit with the worst bush fire which is showing no signs of slowing down. This overshadows the horrific fire that happened at Grenfell Tower and we need to help.
We have a country who have been devastated and we need to do something to help. We can not in good consciousness ignore the situation. We are in this situation because we were supposed to look after the planet and we are destroying it. This is something we cant take back, but, what we can do is rally together to help those in need now.
There has already been death due to this fire and it does not seem to be letting up.
To everyone in the world I am asking that you find a way to support our brothers and sisters down under.
I have already started looking into a way that we can support the fire fighters and have contacted the Rural Fire Service for guidance. Fundraising site to come. I have emailed the Australian Government to see what we can do in terms of people wanting to go over to help. I am one person but together we are a world community.
We need to help these people so what you need to start looking at;
1) Can you post anything to Australia to help support the first responders and survivors? Clothes, Food, Cash etc.
2) Lobby your politicans to look at sending military support;
3) Lobby organisation in the private sector for support; sending items of need out there; free flights for those going out to help; etc;
Lets do what we can, because what would happen if this was our country that was going up in flames would we not want people to help and support? Many people have died and others have lost everything they owned. Nothing can bring those things back but lets look at ways that we can help these people.
I will update you with my progress on getting support sent out there;
