Oops. Should have CW’d this.
Yeah so I was supposed to see my psychologist this afternoon. Appointment had to be binned after ten minutes because Bub has been in close contact with Nanna and Pappa while they’re under isolation orders from travel (timer runs out Monday arvo).
I extremely drained from every fucking thing being so fucking hard. Was actually looking forward to being able to talk to someone about it, but now that’s off for another week while they re-book it.
To be completely honest, I forget there even is an opposition in NSW a lot of the time.
Due to stand down, I’m not back until Monday. So good times.
If I end up catching this and contaminating the farm because I had to make an extra shopping trip because I need to buy three litres of milk instead of two or whatever, you had better believe I am absolutely going to come for the people responsible - middle class, white boomers.
I argued for a week with my dayjob so I could work from home. I want to reduce as much as I can the risk of Erin’s Dad contracting this thing because if he gets it things are going to be real rough for him, even in the best of circumstances.
I don’t want the guilt of being the reason he gets it on my conscience. But I also understand I’m the person most equipped to roll the dice on this.
It’s not even that bad, really.
I mean, even in isolation, the in-laws could order the “most vulnerable prioritised home delivery” or whatever.
But there are people more in need that could use those slots. And I don’t mind going out.
But it’s another thing to think about, not that the selfish hoards care, about how forcing restrictions just to enable anything remotely resembling equitable transactions can end up hurting people.
Here’s a tidbit that only just dawned on me:
Erin’s parents are serving out their 14-day quarantine post-international travel. They can’t go to the shops.
Erin can get really bad asthma, so she’s obviously not going to the shops.
Bub is three. She can’t take herself to the shops.
I’m the only person currently that can do grocery shopping.
Shopping for two families with the restrictions in place, while simultaneously trying to minimise my risk by doing it as little as possible is....hard.
