Say goodbye to the world we knew before. Before the schools closed. Before most of us were sent home to work. It is difficult to make sense of this new world where uncertainty is on speed-dial.

Some days, my mental health is challenged. Other days, I am up. Then slowly down again, gripped by something in my stomach that makes me feel out of control.

Then I feel OK again for a day or two. Then I am down again.
