This forced isolation feels like a bad break up; sitting still in the hurt, wondering when the pain will end, fearing it never will. Most of us were good with two weeks. Can I give up my life for two weeks? Sure. Can I give up my life for three weeks? Um...starting to...

When my child was in serious danger, I blamed myself. 

“I didn’t keep him safe”, I cried, through a text to a friend.
