Why Have I Been Quiet?

Shortly after my mother died last year, COVID19 hit. My energy is sapped.

Staying home during this horrific pandemic, I’ve cocooned with those I love most: my husband and our son.

I cannot predict when or what I’ll be writing next. I cannot predict when I’ll return to mental health advocacy or actively communicate with others on social media.

But, I’m Still Here

I’m still here, alive and well, just quietly so. Reducing my online activities has helped me cope. I’m exercising self-care.

I believe that I’ll be back before the end of 2021. I have hopes for an improved year. I have hope for the COVID19 vaccines. I have hope for more civility and less divisiveness this year.
