DEAR DEIDRE: A MONTH ago I was given the all-clear from leukaemia.
I never thought I’d be glad to get back to school but it was the best.

And now the school’s shut I’m stuck at home all over again. I feel my life will never get back to normal.
I’m a boy of 14. What makes it worse is that my mates are all meeting up round each other’s houses and having a great time, while I’ve been advised to self-isolate for my own safety.
They were pretty good at visiting me when I was in hospital and at home sick. But now they’ve got so much else going on they’ve sort of forgotten about me. I feel rubbish.
DEIDRE SAYS: The Government has asked everyone to avoid non-essential contact.
Point out to one of your more understanding mates that some parents are bound to start being difficult about them meeting up soon.
Suggest you all get together virtually, using Skype or FaceTime, and you can play games online together. Be brave and take the initiative.
Try to do physical stuff every day to keep your spirits up and protect your health.
