Imn not sure if I shoulkd write this but I dont want to bother people too much on a personal level at all so....
I was all set for New Zealand earlier this year...30 years in healthcare (22 professional) I work in theatres usually and now also Intensive Care..looking forward to a life of island hopping mountains and sea, and the States a bit nearer...?
my wife left me last year, but not quite always nipping in and out, and in February moved all her gear back in.
I spent two years looking after 2 babies with a mother who has MS (new diagnosis) who now says we do nothing for her does this sound familiar...(psychos) ... so now the wife has particularly nasty cancer and the doctors say they can do nothing for her...shes sort of half moved back in so I shelved NZ completely
Ive got no money left as such anyway a few bob for this and that but happy enough
After initially working in ITU and theatres, (try my mask on for size, all day long-over the head rubber asbestos retardant thing) ...the work fell off, (was an agency nurse) and no furlough for 3 months, ending up thankfully on UC.
I start work again next week, reluctantly in the private sector with all its corruption and money targets, but Im grateful, even if my heart isnt exactly in it yet.
I posted this to say, if you're feeling shit about things like paper masks and shopping etc. don't, there's worse going on, Im still smiling just, but if anyone has had a sh****er year this year post away, we can talk.
Thankfully people like Dave Thorley and numerous others such as the Jacaranda crew have been providing music through all this else Id have gone doolally.
In the meantime spare time is spent dancing round the living room.. KOKO
Apologies in advance its freebasing so hey ho. Soul Family and that.
