Have you been feeling lonely and isolated? Couldn’t go shopping freely; couldn’t visit friends and relatives; couldn’t go to appointments; couldn’t live the life you think you deserved? That’s two years of Covid restrictions! You have been hoping that this will all be over soon – and it may be – soon; for you – right? There is light at the end of the tunnel – right? Many Covid restrictions have already been relaxed or eliminated, or soon will be. But what if it was not going to be over soon? Would you feel bad about that? Would you be distressed, frustrated, discouraged, depressed, and maybe even angry? Of course you would, some people are already.
For a lot of our residents in New Brunswick, this has been their life for longer than the last two years, and it won’t be over soon even with vaccines and medications to fight Covid or whatever might come along to replace Covid.
