At the beginning of this crisis, I was plunged under a wave of fear and began to drown in anxiety. I was relentlessly tossed by each new wave of change - having to say goodbye to people with no chance to process, losing my regular coffee hangouts with friends (the type that fills you with sanity for the week), feeling suffocated by fear.
