I’m over all this, I can’t do it anymore! The way I feel right now I wish I would go to sleep and just never wake up.
This might seem trivial to many people, but the introduction of mandatory face masks in Melbourne has pushed my anxiety levels off the scale. Let me be clear, I would happily wear a mask if I could, but for whatever reason I can’t breathe when wearing one, I feel like I’m suffocating! It is not from lack of trying either. In the last month or so I have spent around $200 trying to find some sort of face covering in preparation of this day coming. It doesn’t matter what i try it is the same with everything I’ve tried. I end up ripping the mask (or whatever else) off my face gasping for air.
I believe I can go to my GP and get an exemption, but in reality that won’t achieve anything. Instead of not being able to breathe I’ll be harassed by police and harassed and abused in the street for not wearing one. I even read that some retailers will not allow you into a store without a mask and more will without a doubt follow I can’t win no matter what I do!
I know some people will find this trivial, especially since I’ve already been abused online when I asked a genuine question about any alternatives and was told I was a whinger and trying to find loopholes. I wouldn’t have wasted $200 on trying to find something if that was the case!
I won’t even be able to go for a walk, so I’m going to be stuck inside 24/7 for who knows how long and no one cares.
Thanks for listening.
