Stay The F*** Home

Diary of a Scuba Instructor in Glasgow, Scotland.

Today I did just that – I sat and played Red Dead Redemption 2. I drank 6 cups of tea. I make a Thai green coconut curry because I’m having withdrawal symptoms. I read some good articles on COVID-19, including the daily situation update from the World Health Organisation.

The truth is… I feel guilty. It felt weird going out in public yesterday to all these restaurants, knowing full well the best thing I should be doing is hiding myself in my bomb-shelter and not being a potential link in the chain.

I’m frustrated because I’m only here for 1 month. I came here to see all the people I love and miss. I came here to give hugs, to go out and eat delicious food, to celebrate my birthday and see my friends and family. I’m also aware that none of that matters in the grand scheme of things.

What matters is flattening the curve. What matters is protecting the vulnerable. What matters is not being selfish.

I will need to think seriously about whether I continue socialising, because I’m beginning to believe it’s not the right thing to do. If I’m being brutally honest with myself, I know it’s not. I should really stay the fuck home.
