About: General practices in Tayside General practices in Tayside
Posted by Larghan (as ),
I was a very active person until lockdown. I coped well to begin with then came the announcement about mandatory face coverings in shops etc. I contacted my medical practice and got misinformation from the practice manager for which I registered a complaint. I got a response but too late to undo the damage done to my state of mind.
I was coping with my face visor, I have a phobia of face coverings, until, the first Minister announced that face visors on their own were not enough. I was then politely asked to not come back to a local shop and everything has gone downhill since then.
I am now scared to go out other than to walk my dog in open spaces. I have lost all confidence and spend a lot of time sobbing. At night I have dreadful nightmares which are repetitive so I get up rather than endure them. I am sole carer to my alcoholic much older husband who has dementia and refuses all help. I am at my wits end. Who do I turn to now?
