Coping in COVID-19: A Discussion with Mariquita and Nora

Mariquita and Nora discuss how to process anxiety and grief during a time when community may be challenging to access. On the list of don’ts: toxic positivity and invalidating comments disguised as well-wishes. Suggestions include: reaching out to friends, peer groups and helplines; reading beautiful poetry; and finding healthy coping skills that work for and not against growth.

Content warning: Topic discussions include anxiety, infertility, depression, and grief.
