I am 96 and extremely vulnerable, if I get Covid I die to put it bluntly. I’ve been shielding and lonely along with many others during lockdown. However, since becoming fully vaccinated in March I’ve discovered a new lease of life.
I’ve always been very independent. I live alone and take care of myself so having to rely so heavily on my daughter to provide my shopping was challenging for me. Whilst being independent, I love being surrounded by my huge and crazy family and not being able to see them for almost a year was the worst part of it all.
Now, after having the vaccine I am feeling more confident and have more of my freedoms back.
I’ve had a rather emotional reunion with some of my family and have even had the chance to meet my new great grandson which felt impossible a few months back.
I’ve been able to go to Church again which feels like my second home. The services are carried out safely and it’s a good chance to speak with my friends who have had similar lockdown experiences to me.
I still take the appropriate measures to keep myself safe, but things are starting to feel a lot more normal for me and I am so grateful for that.
