Story Contest

Medium

Hello everyone,

With the corona virus going around, many of us, around the world, are stuck in our homes. I have been in my home for a week now. With weeks to probably go..SOOO

In light of this I am having a story contest.
Give my a story on how you are coping with this, or how you will cope.
Remember this, we are all in this together and we will get through this dark time together.
If you have fears, talk to people about it. It will help.
Yes, I will give a prezzie as well.
I think I will keep this open for several weeks so you all have a place to come to to talk about this issue.
So, get your writing hats on…

My care home is in lockdown as a precaution.
Yesterday I had a major breakdown but took the very important and difficult step of getting help before it escalated too far. It took most of the day to get out of it but I finally budged it by looking back through my photos and finding a picture of my visit and keeper shadowing experience at the local zoo I had for my birthday last year.
A month before my birthday mum took me to the zoo and we both were guided down to the African enclosure where we came face to face with Otto, their superb male white rhino. He was a truly gentle giant and, though this may sound silly, he was really just a big dog. He looks tough but is really very soppy and loves attention. He didn’t need encouraging over once he saw us there at the bars, he came straight over for fuss.
We rubbed and petted him through the bars and I was even allowed to stick my head through to get a really close look. Things got even better when the other rhinos and the giraffes noticed what was happening and all came down to get their share of attention. Even the calf came bounding down to have some stroking.
All round an absolutely amazing experience and reliving it helped me so much, and still is as I am now planning to save up to revisit him again this year, specifically requesting I see him if I can. He has a new calf with one of the females and I look forward to seeing them too.
The planning really gives me hope and something to look forward to.
