Hello! We're another week into our quarantine, bringing it up to three weeks now. How are you holding up?

I have been through all the stages of grief and reached an acceptance that this is the new normal for now. I hesitate to write it because I know so many people and...

How are you doing?

We are two weeks into our quarantine now. I am much less anxious than I was last week but do still have bouts of worry. I am willing myself to be more disciplined and minimize the late-night Googling, which benefits no one, and trying instead to prior...

I have cried. I have prayed. I have stockpiled. I have gotten yelled at at the grocery store for "taking all the food." I have stayed up way too late too many nights in a row anxiously glued to news articles. I have been surprised at how normal our daily lives still ar...
