When you need masks for your ears
Fifty days into Coronavirus/COVID-19 lockdown on 15 May 2020 prompted me to reflect on the frontlines personally and professionally as a nursing manager, adding collegial anecdotes.
The World Health Organization notes that half of health workers report mental health support needs during this crisis. Overarching anxiety is common. A dark shadow on days and light into the pineal gland at night, fighting sleep. To lie awake, wonder and worry about your patients, your family and lastly yourself, while imagination writes inflammatory nursing notes in your head.
