Lockdown has been challenging for Julia’s House Young Ambassador Ebony but cuddles with Trixie and hopes of soon being able to eat her favourite vegetable ramen are keeping her going…
I have been in lockdown for 9 weeks now. I am shielding so haven’t been out of the house at all in all that time.
I have my good days and bad days, but I am trying to stay positive.
I am really missing my friends and family and being able to go outside and walk my dog, Trixie. She’s a springer spaniel so needs walks twice a day, she’s really energetic.
Its hard as I’m shielding so can’t go outside at all. It’s hard when I can see people outside of my front window going for exercise and a change of scenery. But at least I have my back garden.
I have been watching a lot of Netflix, have been doing word searches and colouring. Also a lot of naps as sitting around makes me very tired.
Thanks to Zoom and social media I have been able to be in touch with friends. I have been doing quizzes and just chatting.
Some days I wake up and feel really depressed. It’s so hard to snap out of it and stay positive for my family.
One of the most important things is my new wheelchair which came just before lockdown. It tilts and reclines so I’m not really in pain when I’m in it. Of course, my phone – I can’t live without my phone. My dog Trixie for cuddles and my crazy mum and dad!!
This one’s funny. Getting away from my crazy family!! Going to see my friends. A little bit of normality. Also I really need a Wagamama’s vegetable ramen.
