Mummy blogger Constance Hall has revealed how the coronavirus pandemic has caused a ripple effect on her life, including her marriage.

The Perth mother-of-seven, 36, took a swipe at her husband Denim Cooke on social media after he ‘accused’ her of ‘unnecessary panicking’. 

‘I don’t know if my marriage is strong enough to survive this virus,’ she said to more than 1.3 million followers in her Facebook group. 

‘If I get told I’m panicking because I’m simply preparing to feed and care for a house full of humans when the food is unavailable I’ll scream.

‘If one more man tells me that I’m neurotic, anxious or stressing out over nothing or panicking when really all I’m doing is what my brain wants me to do, stay aware of potential dangers so I can avoid them where possible.

‘Maybe instead of accusing me of unnecessary panicking my husband could thank me and my sophisticated brain for keeping his children safe and prepared.’

The outspoken author said she has been suffering from asthma since she was a child so she relies heavily on Ventolin medication.

But in recent weeks, pharmacies right across Australia have been forced to limit the sales of inhalers as concerned patients stock up amid the coronavirus crisis.

‘Today I was told that no chemists in town have Ventolin. The woman who works at the chemist snuck me an emergency one when she found out how often I’m using mine,’ Ms Hall said.

‘If I didn’t get a Ventolin I’d be in hospital for sure. It’s not the virus I’m worried about, it’s everything that’s falling down around it.

‘The interesting thing about this virus is that it’s not the kids I’m worried about, it’s not my husband or any of the other people we are used to putting in front of ourselves. This time it’s me.’

Ms Hall – who has asthma – said she’s also concerned about the Ventolin shortage because she has been relying on the essential medication since she was a child

Ms Hall said she was hospitalised several times as a kid but she ‘always responded well’ to the essential medication. 

‘I haven’t had a serious attack since I was 20 and it’s never been something I worry about, I do however rely on medication,’ she said.

‘The family isn’t used to me being worried about me. It feels weird to them. But what happens if I go down? The only person who would drop everything to help me is my mum and I can’t risk her.’

She suggested the COVID-19 outbreak could be a ‘nice wake up call’ to her family.

‘Maybe this is a nice wake up call to the rest of the family. Mums are not indestructible, we are not put on this world to serve our families,’ Ms Hall said.
