Call it a type of self-care if you will, but I have made a point of not listening/watching/reading about anything more than the absolute basics of this tragedy.

It's not that I don't care, it's not that my heart doesn't go out to those families who have lost love ones or who are trying to support those who have lost love ones, but I know just how sensitive I am to this kind of thing, and just how deeply it will affect me if I watch all the heartbreaking footage.

I had a hard enough time dealing with the suicide of Jacintha Saldanha recently, keep bursting into tears all the time, and I don't want to be that affected again so soon - it's not fair on my children (or myself) when I am like that....not that anything about this tragedy is "fair"

What I've learned in therapy is that I just am a very sensitive person... and that is often a blessing, but sometimes has a down side too.

The people of Newton are in my thoughts now, and will be over the whole festive season -  but I am learning how to care for myself too
