How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : I already suffer from anxiety and self loathing, and with all this time, it has really made me doubt myself and my relationships. It has given me more time with my son which is great but also a lot of time alone. So it’s been rough. Work has gone down. And put a pause on pursuing a degree.

What questions would you like to ask others?: If you could redo one part of your life, what would it be and how would you want it to go?
