All at once it feels as if the world is going into meltdown. And the questions being thrown around range from ‘Are we all being driven into panic mode by media?’ or ‘Is this virus really sending us into lockdown’?
Once upon a time, I wanted to be a superwoman. I wanted to have all the answers, I wanted to be seen to be able to do everything and I wanted to be perfect
