    I can feel those people, I am still having issues now. I have insomnia every night. When this pandemic came I was so mad. I was pissed off everyday, I was mad. I hate how the president is handling the virus. Every other country in the world has 0 cases while there is 2 Million Cases in America. I couldn't sleep, I eating has been off, I was depressed. The littlest thing would make me snap.

    For me, the best ways to help my mental health is get good sleep with my psychiatrist prescribed sleep medicine, stay busy doing things I like, and only allow myself online access to highly reliable Covid info and data every four days.

  8. Sakura Moore says

    Now, the world can be a nasty crazy place out there, we need a lot of courage and we need a lot of resilience after that, and we will fall down before we stand up… What really matters is the silence of the night in our conscience, when we are alone. We cannot control what happens but we can use what happens. We have so much reserves of love and support inside us, if we can just remember that in our mind and move on.
