Lonely, isolated, scared, afraid, painful, stressful these are all words I have heard over the past several months of this pandemic. At first I felt it would only last a few weeks, then things started closing schools, business etc. then I started getting scared, fearful for my family here in Canada and in England.

This lockdown is bad enough but when you have hsp or pls it is double trouble!!! A lady from our HSP/PLS Canada facebook page said that with all her husband’s activities stopped even though he tries to use a stationary bike his legs have gotten tighter. I wonder who else feels this way? I am finding my legs are hurting more and feeling heavy, for me I think it’s because I am sitting more and not moving around as much and all the regular activities are closed. With the warmer weather our swimming pool is now open and I am trying to go swimming everyday.This has helped me to keep my legs a bit looser. A swimming pool if you can get into it, go for it, the water is amazing for all muscles. I would recommend to never go swimming by yourself.
I can not imagine how this lockdown has been to young children, an 8 year old girl has struggled being away from school/regular activities that kept her on her feet for most of the day than at home. I do think this is the same for most of us. It’s the new normal but we as adults don’t understand so how can we expect children to understand. When all the regular activities are closed we have to push ourselves to do the slightest thing. I know I have. Just even getting up you are thinking. today is no different than yesterday, I can not see my friends , my family. I thank God for all technology as this has kept us in touch with each other. I have a friend who encourages me to get up and do something productive everyday.We all need a friend like that so this is my prayer for you to do at least one productive thing today!!!!!!
