How has COVID-19 impacted your mental health?: "Hello, my name is Maria and my mental health was never really great to begin with for many different reasons. But since living in the pandemic without the lock downs and many restrictions, it's definitely deteriorated. It's very lonely and hard to be stuck at home all day. The kids faked and the Break Stuff. It's hard keeping them entertained every day. You just read the phone call from school to say that someone has a slit again. My son needs 24/7 care and attention and I was a single parent. That's an awful lot. So I'm allowed the next day same a Bible for extra help or respect which I really do need a go to my mom's more stairs, or they come to my house. But that also leaves me an awful worried and paranoia all the time that if I was to pass on call, but the main mom or dad and they were to get sick and anything was to happen to them and that it would be my fault and I would have to live with that and also that my family could hold me responsible for making him sick. So what's You can't win it's a no-win situation for anybody."
