Day 17: Reach Out! (Remember you’re not alone)

This is a short post, mostly a reminder to everyone that we’re in this together. It can feel very isolating to not see the people you’re used to seeing or even be able to leave the house. Don’t suffer in silence if you’re feeling especially down. Reach out to your friends when you need help or if you run out of something or if you just need somebody to talk to. We’re all in this together! Here are some helpful resources during this difficult time.
