I cannot believe it has been just over a year since I began working from home, wearing a mask in public, and self isolating with my partner. So much as changed. The year has felt excruciatingly long, and yet it also feels as if time has not passed at all. I know I’m not alone in how I have felt during the pandemic, and I’ve written a couple of pieces already discussing how I was personally trying to get through such a weird time. I wrote about 6 ways I was coping through self isolation, and I also collected ten things that were getting me through the pandemic in another post. However, this post is really just to take some time to reflect on my year in self isolation during a world wide pandemic. I hope you’ll get yourself some tea and settle it with me while I get some of these thoughts out.
Before I begin I would also like to give a content warning. I will be discussing my mental health, my body and weight, and other things that may be triggering.

There’s nothing but love here for you so take care of yourself first.Continue reading “Spoilers! Reflecting on One Year in Self Isolation”
