“Recovery Stories: Coping with Covid-19” – June 2021

The line “Keep the rage tender” from the poem “Therapy” by Nayyirah Waheed expresses how I feel about the year 2020. I was angry, depressed, and grieving about what happened last year; but having a kind heart toward myself and others softened the blow. I have learned to live softly and slowly in this new normal.

As of March, 2020, when the news broke about Covid 19, I made the decision to temporarily move from my nine-person, four-generational home to a three-person home with friends who were as careful as I was about remaining free of this deadly virus.
