I am not to crazy about them either I think it is because i know it is for me like I cannot breathe.I dont like being covered up like that.I have agoraphobia however most people who have that also have claustrophobia.I usaully after a couple of minutes pull it down because i wear the one with like some of the doctors wear the blue ones anyway i pull it down and take a few breaths for about a minute then put it back on,I jsut wish this whole virus would just disappear.

An update.

Apparently the only ones really suitable are those used by hospital staff. We've been told not to buy these so NHS and care homes have unrestricted supply.

Something to do with fabric density and ability to trap germs/virus. Homemade ones and scarves offer no protection whatsoever.

Still going without. Will be interesting what happens when I get hairdressers appointment. Word is they will be using disposable ones....
