We are in the midst of a pandemic.
Since March 15, 2020 people have been in quarantine, many have lost their employment. People have gotten sick, many have died. It’s a time of great uncertainty. It’s quite scary to be honest.
I have been in self-isolation since March 15. But I am fine and working from home. I’m fortunate to have a job where I can do that.
It’s been hard being by myself and home 24/7. I miss my family and friends. I miss performing live. Despite this, I will keep doing it in order to keep others safe and for however long it takes to get this virus under control.
This is a frightening time for all of us. If you are struggling with mental health issues brought on by COVID-19, there are resources offered by the Government of Canada where you can get help:
