Too Peopley Outside(!)

Dear Diary,

To the covidiots gathering in the local parks, socialising in this glorious weather… this is how not to overreact to a stranger that may be walking / running by keeping (at least) a good social distance.

DON’T jump behind he nearest tree to avoid them.
DON’T jump behind the nearest building / shed to avoid them.
DON’T show your fear that makes them feel like a monster that may be going out for a walk or a run for exercise / their mental health purposes.

Why is it so hard for some people to be pleasantly mindful and respectful?

The sooner ALL the parks are closed, the better. The police have apparently been enforcing their powers, dispersing covidiots gathering & sunbathing elsewhere…. This deadly virus does not discriminate yet it is separating stupidity from sensibilities.

The covidiots’ overreactions is THEIR problem. That’s all I have to and need to remember.

This is sadly the perfect time for anyone wanting to or likes to be in their own world. Too peopley outside(!)

Coronavirus 19.

Dear Diary,

I’m falling asleep much earlier at night from pure tiredness, having been tense and worried every minute of the day.
My heart sinks every time one says they have a headache, or have an innocent cough. I worry about them on top of everything and everyone else.
It is the norm to see an ambulance or two but yesterday it was the first time I felt dread seeing one creeping by, “what if?” I hoped that person would be ok regardless.
I’m waking up to worrying again, whether my family is ok, if anyone’s feeling better, checking my phone to see if there’s any news of loved ones and friends and being momentarily thankful for none. Yet I know, there will be at least one.
My day of worrying and feeling tense then starts all over again…

London has the highest rates of confirmed cases, confirmed cases in each and every neighbouring borough – that’s not counting those who have the virus and haven’t been tested.

Worse is yet to come. Stay safe, wherever you may be. 💖

To the idiots who think you/they are invincible, you need a good slap, and then some, for spreading this deadly virus – you have potentially murdered many more with your stupidity instead of saving loved ones. Other people’s loved ones also.
Shame on you covidiots.

Cherished.

For a while now, I have been missing my childhood and school friends, weren’t those the days? ☺️
Except I now feel the need to make you smile instead, by simply letting you know that I too miss you and love you – as friends. 😜
If it’s a one way street, that’s ok too, just know that I care, regardless.
Thank YOU, for always accepting me for who I am.
For sharing / making some of those cherished memories with me.
Thank YOU, to old friends and new,, for remaining besides me, for continuing to be there still.
Thank YOU also, for being one of the reasons why I smile.

Deaf Mental Health On Social Media.

If you want to learn sign language or needed an interpreter for an appointment, would you settle for someone who knows only the basics and perhaps a little more? You would not because you would want a qualified sign language tutor or a registered interpreter – right? So that you could be fully confident of what you were being taught / told.

Then why are people (especially the deaf) sharing very personal videos about their mental health issues and sharing them to a secret group, run by an admin team and members that are NOT qualified to relatively advise?

I from personal experience appreciate that friendly support can be therapeutic and is better than nothing but it’s potentially dangerous in such a social media group. Thank you, but no thank you. I’ll stick to sites provided by qualified counsellors.

Please view a previous post of mine which also relates to mental health therapy, the deaf way. 

Vent given. ☺️

The HM Passport Office.

I was in the process of renewing a British passport the other day and I decided after, to have a read through the leaflet that accompanied the passport form. I came across a section in it, written for those who happen to have a disability and i spotted a certain point which made me read it twice, thrice even.

I could not believe the poor quality of this particular paragraph in what is, such an important leaflet from the British Government, the HM Passport Office. For anyone wishing to apply for or renewing their British passport.

1B7C1838-F462-44B7-8BE8-1F193537E14E

You know me, I tried to contact the Passport office to politely let them know of this poorly worded paragraph but they have not responded or acknowledged it, yet.

For more information about Typetalk which is alternatively known as Text Relay, please follow this link to better understand.

Somewhat disappointed at the incompetence but hopeful that the said paragraph will be rectified after some educating . Feel free to join me, in educating them.

Back To Basics.

Aloe Vera has healing and soothing properties.

What to do / use for intolerant skin?

I now have extremely intolerant skin which seemed to only get more sensitive / intolerant with each pregnancy.

This is the best piece of natural skin care advice I have been given so sharing for yourselves also.

The best thing for intolerance is to avoid skin care products and let the skin find its naturally healthy balance.

All these products suppress the skins own abilities to do this.

At most some Aloe Vera juice, or some diluted apple cider vinegar or some rose water, or some camomile tea, or some elderflower tea, or some cucumber water, or some diluted lemon water which are all cleansing, soothing and alkalising depending on skin type and severity of the issues and what feels best.

There are some nice mild, minimal ingredients Aloe products, or another option would be a hemp oil salve depending on skin type, again minimal ingredients is best, seaweed water is another really gentle face wash, witchhazel is a good possibility, or vitamin E oil is very good for skin.

It is most likely the skin is reacting to something going on internally and it is being eliminated through the skin which is our largest detox organ. Aloe taken internally can really help with this, cucumber juice, celery juice and lemon juice, apple cider vinegar water and bicarbonate of soda water are all good gentle cleansers internally.

Very likely your body is reacting to and trying to eliminate something like meat or dairy or gluten so while any of the above topical or internal options would help the best thing would be to find the cause and eliminate it.

The Avene intolerant skin care range is an alternative, however, the best skincare products I have ever come across (am using to date) is “Aloe Vera – Eternal Skincare”.

Do look after yourselves for our bodies are our temples, treat yourselves – each and every day.
