Life looks pretty different since the COVID-19 pandemic has emerged. With daily routines at a standstill due to social distancing and a constant stream of worrisome news, it’s easy to feel anxious, uncertain and alone. And if you’re living with chronic illness, or caring for somebody who has one, those familiar feelings are likely at an all-time high right now.
