covid-19

I started social isolating couple of weeks before the government announced it. My thoughts were that my life is connected with my nuclear family and extended family and if I kept face to face appointments I will definitely put them at risk. I also notice patients coming for appointments and saying that they just had a head cold or sinuses were playing up and I had no way to check if it was anything else. So best thing was stop face to face consultations.

When I stated on-line sessions, there was a lot of resistance but as time went by they warmed up to the idea and I had had some practice in working online as well. I found I built more rapport with patients as we explored together the online world and saw each other in the home environment.

I found some patients opening up a little bit more and we started sharing our fears and strategies to adapt to covid-19.

I suddenly realised, I had been working so much that my house was in chaos. By being home, I started giving attention to the house and turning it to a home. I was having more family time, meals became regular and the garden was suddenly important. I was watering my plants, reorganising cupboard and still working full-time.

Then came the D-Day when hubby got his call for heart transplant. Had to close shop and drive to Sydney. Stayed there for a while and priorities changed. I survived without work. I had time for me and had time to think what I wanted out of life. My boys were around me, hovering, I was being nurtured and all I had to do was be there for hubby. I felt blessed.

Now, I am back home, working part-time, I think I have got the balance between work and home. Covid-19 did a lot of things, for me it sorted out my priority and that is my family. I still love my work but now it will be slow and steady. No six days a week. 

Stay safe guys. Nothing like love ones around you. I will practice social distancing as I want to keep those that I love safe and healthy.
