I'm going to be frank. COVID-19 has messed with my mental health in more ways than I first antcipated & realised but the good thing is, I know I'm not alone. Today, I'm simply going to share the content of those that have been sharing their experiences online but also how they're coping. Reading through all these articles really helped affirm in my mind, I'm not going crazy & that I'm not alone in feeling like this.
