1. Introduction

This topic has come about from the way my sister and I have been feeling of late.

We feel as though we are drowning amongst our responsibilities, as though we are struggling to keep our head above water and having to push ourselves to the maximum when doing the simplest of daily tasks.

We feel tired, we feel drained, we feel exhausted. We feel back to the days where we would like to bury our heads in the sand like an ostrich.

We have been on a rollercoaster of a journey for the past five years, ever since our Dad was hospitalised in September 2016, sadly passing away in March 2017.

It has been a journey and experience up until this very day.

On top of getting through the journey of the loss of our Dad, we then experienced something majorly life-changing, and mentally life-changing. The Worldwide Pandemic Coronavirus.

My sister and I felt like we were living from bubble to bubble during our grief journey, the pandemic well and truly magnified these feelings. We are trying our very best to stay as positive as we can be as we continue on our journey of grief and learning.

With everything combined (including our health issues), we do struggle to maintain relationships, this is with both friends and family, because we have this feeling of continuously thinking at such a fast pace, we feel we sometimes do not manage to balance things correctly. Although we do recognise this, it does make us feel bad. We truly love and appreciate everyone who has and continues to support us, you mean the world to us, and we are grateful and thankful.
