Q. What does Covid Realities mean to you right now?
I first took part in Covid Realities because I was very much involved in studies and participating in the research and understanding of the pandemic. I wanted to help in any way I could and this was a way of doing this over the past year Covid Realities has been a rock and you have all been amazing. I really do feel heard by all of you and you are the kindest people the little surprises that you send out are so thoughtful and very caring. Mental health has been a big issue for myself and for everyone else around me and in this study and the kind words and the thoughtful gifts and emails checking in make me smile so much and come at times when I need to be reassured there are kind people like the amazing people on your team. I wear the Covid Realities hat you sent us all in the winter time everywhere I go and everyone that has commented on it I've told about how you amazing people have given me a voice and helped by showing that you're listening. I tell them to get involved because your all doing such a great thing researching the pandemic and more you're helping us all. I am glad I joined Covid Realities and talk very highly of you all you have all been absolutely amazing and I don't think I would've stayed as positive and as strong in this pandemic without you all listening and letting the government know what we all have to say about what's happening to us all through this and I thankyou all for that and I hope that the posts I've sent in have helped with your research. Hope you all have a great day and stay your positive happy selves :)
