March 11, 2020 was the day the world learned we were in a COVID-19 Pandemic.
A Year Ago…
…I was riddled with anxiety and depression knowing I was going to die within weeks. I did not want to die alone in the hospital, so decided I would die by suicide at home. I gathered all the most potent medications and set them out, trying to figure out when I should take them. I called a beloved friend who would sit with me on the phone as I faded away, so felt more in control over a completely out-of-control experience.
A Year Later
On March 11, 2021, I got my first COVID vaccine shot.
I am going to make it through this pandemic alive.
