I am a highschool student in Oregon, I'm on track to graduate a year early. I do mma and train at an amazing gym. I hope one day to be in the ufc. My experience with the pandemic was off. It felt as if I had no one. The pandemic brought me a lot of bad things and also good things. It was hard and boring. I hated it but there were times when I didn't. To all the people who are having hard times or think the pain won't stop. It will stop one day. You'll find your way out of the darkness soo. I promise you all that, you guys will all find light. I hope everyone gets through this, stay safe everyone.

Hey, I’m a 16 y/o high school student. I’m here to tell you about my experiences in this pandemic. And mannn I’d just describe this whole pandemic in one word- crusty loll. These past couple years been tough man. Not just because of lockdown and so much change, but also so much going on in my personal life as well; Just like most of us. The pandemic just makes those things 10x harder to deal with. Having most of my highschool experience taken away from me has been rough too. It’s not fun to be home all the time and just be isolated and unproductive, it can really weigh on you. But I’m here to tell you you’re not alone in this at all, even though It’s been nothing but lonely, so many people can relate to you and me. Over the pandemic, I’ve had a looot of time to self reflect and find some better ways to cope with everything. I realized developing healthy hobbies/coping skills would benefit me in a lot of ways. I’ve gotten really into playing sports and exercise, not only is it good for the body, but also the mind. Lots of days I don't feel like getting up and doing that, but honestly, i've learned that if you Just do it without thinking about it, you wont regret it and you will feel good afterwards. I know it's hard but doing slight productive activities can really bring you out of an unmotivated, depressed mood; and make you feel inspired enough to be productive in other ways too. A little motivation goes a long way, the power is within you to find it, and use it to its full potential! P.S. The activity doesnt have to be exercise, it can be anything from doing your makeup, drawing, listening to music, playing a sport, going for a walk, cooking food, ect. Anything you enjoy!! I hope I helped manifest A positive message into your life as an individual, if you took the time to read this loll. Stay safe, I Love You All! <3<3

this pandemic has been hard on everyone, some people more than others. For me I was somebody who went through loss of friends, a special pet of mine, and a loss of myself, throughout the pandemic I went through many different clothes, many hair colors and styles, and many relationships, all of these have shaped me to be the person I am now, while the pandemic is still happening 2 years later, I can say I am finally content with who I am and the life I have, the pandemic wasn't a positive experience, but it was life changing, and for me personally it was for the better; When school started up again is when I really started to find myself, it still was a very lonely time only having 2 classes a day with 3-4 students in the classes I had, and not much conversation. But I found a great school with great people which finally opened me up to many opportunities now and in the future. I hope everyone can find the positives from this experience, stay safe

When the first lockdown occurred I thought it wasn’t going to be that bad but I started to lose friends and my grandad died but I he was to far to travel for the funeral so I became depressed and almost at the end of giving up my life. But, the email that saved me was a congratulations to being offered a place to UOB to study my dream course. it gave me reassurance that I will be okay and that I need to put my trust in God. Fast forward to this current lockdown, it hasn’t been easy especially feeling stressed and alone at home but this year I gained people to support me even when I am feeling at my worse and I know how to get back up when I’ve fallen down. I’ve just found out about this website and wanted to share that even at your lowest point in life you will feel alone but seek help even if it’s just for company; it’s better to be with someone then to feel and be alone X

After I split up with an abusive partner in 2017, I got my life together, found a job and emigrated to Canada, met someone and we are happily married, I started work for both the Canadian and British government and until Covid hit was very happy, had a full life, but when Covid happened, both my sister and I got it.

 

We were told to stay at home and isolate, we were both key workers but they had already had an outbreak at our workplace, but when Justin Trudeau got it also, life was difficult. we always thought we could carry on working especially with restrictions in place but that wasn't to be.

My sister was part of my bubble and so I stayed with her for quite some time.

When we fell ill, I missed my husband a lot and my son's and grand children also, and I couldn't get to see them.

 

My sister being so much older, got it first and she couldn't lie in bed, because every time she tried, she was coughing up blood, previously we had been told to stay at home and isolate and quarantine for 14 days but when I saw how ill she really was, I panicked and called our private healthcare, tried to explain to them, they said the same as government.

 

This was in the early days of the virus and I know it was in both countries before the end of 2019.

My sister died February 2nd 2020, the day she was born and I still can't believe she has gone due to the very people who wouldn't help, the people we worked for.

I miss my friend who died with Covid in May. She was such a special person to me. She lived a 100 miles from my home. But we saw each other several times a year. Listening to her on the phone from her home in her final days was difficult. I wanted to hold her hand, I wanted to give her some company and some comfort. I tried my very best to be cheery and kind and understanding. She had supported my family - therefore - in the end, not to be able to reciprocate was awful. But that was not to be, life has been thrown into all sorts of disarray. No final goodbye, no funeral, no celebration of her life. Just another statistic. I feel sad about that. But I am glad she was part of our lives for a long time and that we had shared something good over the years.
