Sorry its been a while, I am in the process of changing jobs and that has been my full focus for a few weeks. In the madness that is the world at the moment, I wanted to take a minute to reflect on all those people still having to work, day in, day out. Those people that are so passionate about their jobs they put their lives on the line everyday to help others. I can totally emphasise with people being made to stay in right now, I remember over the years when i’ve been in and out of hospital, what it feels like to be a caged bird. It’s hard. It’s hard for your mental health, it’s hard for your physical health, it’s just generally frustrating. But let’s all just take a moment to pay attention to those who are working extra hours, extra hard to keep this world revolving. All the lorry drivers delivering food, all the stock assistants restocking the shelves of our local shops to make sure we can all have food. All the police men and women working extra hard at this time, to enforce the governments new advice. All the paramedics attending call after call, putting their lives at risk to look after those with symptoms of the corona virus. All the doctors and nurses working tirelessly in the hospitals, with patients confirmed to have corona virus, to ensure they are given every chance of a full recovery. And many more workers within different industries that continue to work hard. We all thank you. We all appreciate you, you are all heroes.
Working in the care industry has taught me one thing. Carers are amongst some of the most amazing, caring, talented, passionate people I have ever met. My work colleagues are exceptional, day in, day out. Whether they are going through personal problems, whether they aren’t feeling 100%, whether they are scared of going home to their family after work incases they are cross contaminating……they turn up and work their butts off every day with a smile on their face. I think carers go so far under the radar when it comes to the people we think of thanking. Carers still work, they look after your vulnerable family members or friends when you have to isolate. So id like to take this opportunity to thank all the carers who are currently working themselves too exhaustion to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their clients and residents. You are far from unskilled workers, you are the most amazing individuals I know. Thank you for keeping everyone within your care safe. So if you know any key workers, or any carers, please don’t keep complaining about being home all day, yes its hard, but some of these people would love to have a day off. Let’s continue to help each other, support each other, better times are coming. Keep safe everyone, thank you for everything you do!
