I miss normal life


Liam Campbell

Initially, I had thought that being quarantined would be relaxing, or at least something of a neutral experience. Recently, however, I have begun to feel increasingly isolated from my pre-quarantine life. It has caused me to feel hopeless, anxious, and sad. Staying healthy and stimulated feels unimportant, because my life got taken from me and I have no idea when I’ll get it back. When I do, I don’t know what that will look like. I know that my experience is being felt in similar ways by people all around the world, and that this is something that won’t be forgotten. I just wish there were some magical solution that didn’t involve lost time.
