Hi Golden82 and Moonstruck. I didn't post for a while as I felt that I should reduce my exposure. There have been times when I've become distressed due to not being able to freely express myself, which seemed to defeat the purpose. If either of you are interested, I've been listening to a podcast on the ABC radio website called "Germs and Justice' hosted by John Feign. It's a 3 part series that looks into different aspects of the lock down from a legal perspective with a panel of university professors. I'm glad that someone is finally examining whether the removal of all these civil liberties breaches any law or the constitution. It's scary to me that the majority of people have been so willing to comply with these so called regulations without even thinking about it. I've been listening to ABC radio a lot more. I used to listen to the radio all the time when I was younger, but somehow got out of the habit. I also really like Nightlife with Philip Clarke on 702 from 10pm. It's good when I can't sleep and he discusses lots of interesting topics. Golden82 - I hope you're ok and that you've been able to have another desensitisation attempt since your last post. As I said before, I think it's so wrong that you've been put in this position. Have the trains been crowded in Adelaide? I'm finding it strange that after all the isolation, it's really hard to get out of bed and get motivated. For me, the restrictions on movement went on for far too long. I think it's going to take me a long time to recover from all the set backs caused by this isolation. In NSW, it's good that things have been opening up. Also in SA, things seem to be moving forward so I hope that helps you to some degree. Moonstruck, I agree with you and I always felt the same from the beginning - that this was a great big over reaction that would do much more harm than good. I'm even more strongly of that view now. I hope you're coping as best you can with your bereavement. It must have been awful to go through all that in the current climate, especially with the outrageous restrictions of funerals, some of the cruellest rules that were imposed. In Sydney, I sense that people are pretty sick of the whole thing and I see, when I'm out, that people are embracing the opening of restaurants, bars, etc, with gusto, and there is an upbeat atmosphere in most public places. I understand that cinemas in Sydney are due to open next week. I hope you are both doing ok.
