While many people talk about the health aspects of the coronavirus outbreak, not as many people talk about the mental health aspects.

She shared a message that said, “It’s ok to feel scared and alone and helpless. It’s ok to feel overwhelmed worrying about money, jobs and the sheer number of cases. [It’s] ok to think you’re developing symptoms every time you read a new news article. It’s ok to not know what to say to your kids when they ask why.”

The post continued, “It’s ok to not understand the math that your kids are doing in school. It’s ok to feel frustrated that you can’t hug your parents or convince them to stay inside. [It’s] ok to cook the same thing over and over then reheat the leftovers. It’s ok to work from home in your pajamas. It’s ok to watch mindless TV. [It’s] even ok to make TikTok videos with your kids.”

[It] is not ok to profiteer from hand sanitizer. It is not ok to pretend that you’re feeling fine if you aren’t. [It] is not ok to not wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and hot water.”
