Laura Click - Coping with Collective Crisis

For the past week or so, I’ve been struggling with what to say or write as we enter deeper into this challenging time with the coronavirus. And quite honestly, a lot of that is because I didn’t quite know how I was feeling myself. It has been a rollercoaster of emotions and feelings since the…
