MENTAL HEALTH

OK, it’s been about 24 hours since I had the first of my vaccinations.
How do I feel?

I actually feel ok.
I got quite achy around my shoulders and neck late last night and I’m still a little achy this morning, but other than that, I’m absolutely fine.
I know this is to be expected after ANY vaccination, so I’m not worried.

What I am worried about at the moment is my physical and mental health.

The last year has exacerbated my weight gain.
I have turned to eating and a lot more drinking on days off and spend a lot of time vegetating in front of the TV or on the computer.
Work is ‘full on’ most of the time. Spending the best part of a 12.5 hour shift on your feet is draining, physically and mentally and when I get home, the ONLY thing I want to do is vegetate in front of the TV or go on the computer.

The problem with the computer however, is that I am constantly confronted by morons who have no clue what is actually happening out there in the real world. They spout misinformation and utter bollocks and people believe it!!
Conspiracy theories surrounding the vaccines are absolutely, gobsmackingly, hysterical, but people are believing it!
I will comment on something and then be bombarded by people who think that COVID is all a hoax and that we are taking away people’s rights by asking them to wear a mask in public.

I’m sure the 80,000+ people who have died in this country due to COVID would completely understand their ‘right’ to not wear a mask….. Oh wait, they can’t because they are DEAD. Probably because they came into contact with somebody who didn’t believe in wearing a mask or couldn’t be bothered to social distance!!

There, you see?
Just writing this blog is getting me all rattled. I can feel my blood pressure rising.

It’s time to do something about it.

I am going to concentrate on me, my family and my friends.
I am going to be a little more careful about what I’m eating and drinking and I’m going to drag my sorry arse away from this computer a bit more.
I’m going to go out for walks and when I can’t, I am going to make use of the treadmill that’s been sitting in the corner for the best part of a year.
There’s no reason I can’t stick a movie on and just go for a stroll while I’m watching it!!

So, when it comes to Facebook, I will be lurking.
You will still see my blog posts being posted but I will aim to stand back from everything else and watch the fireworks without getting myself involved.
