“With the pandemic keeping us all at home, normal life out the door- I saw my mental health getting worse. Even while working with my therapist, it was extremely tough. I gained 20 lbs from emotional eating, I had several mental breakdowns, and I was jobless with bills piling up. When 2021 came around and we were able to get the vaccine, I immediately got mine when I had the chance. Getting the vaccine meant that I could be with my friends and family, work and be productive with my life. Since I’ve gotten my vaccine I’ve taken advantage of safely doing what I love.”
