COVID isolation is my life

The mass experience of isolation during COVID lockdown is reassuring for me. Hearing people express the pain of social isolation feels like validation. I’ve been socially isolated by the mental health closet & poverty for so long that I’ve lost all my friends & opportunities for friendships with peers are almost non-existent. Welcome to my life.

It does feel like validation.
My hope is that this struggle isn't forgotten after the "new normal", and real change happens internally/externally.
It has been shamefully easy for people to ignore plight that doesn't affect them directly.
So many people have been forgotten and continue to be.

That was me 2yrs ago, two busted knees, raped & homeless after a cascade of medical malpractice & its fallout. Life sucks when choices are taken away from you & you’re left with terrible consequences & people who don’t get it then blame you.
I take solace in relentless change.
I hope things get better for you.
