Everyone is experiencing the pandemic differently but the extreme nature of what we’re going through may manifest as stress, anger, depression, anxiety, loneliness or a combination of all of them.
We’re still reacting to how quickly our lives were uprooted.
Of the 1,000+ parents who have taken the pandemic survey, many expressed that loneliness is the hardest part of social distance. You might think, how can I feel lonely when I’m literally surrounded by family 24/7? Dr. Charmain explains it really well in this quote.
With the pandemic came a total disruption of our every day lives. We are social beings by nature and it’s a huge change for all of our interactions with friends and co-workers to become virtual or at a safe distance.
