What We Need - Lisa

May 19, 2020

Hello, my name is Lisa, and I am a person with a disability. I live in Burlington, Iowa. This virus has affected me in the sense that I am so bored and I can't go where I want to. I can't see my mom, I can't get on the bus, I can't go for walks to the gas station or to fun city, and I can't go to dayhab. These were all things I enjoyed doing on a regular basis. I have felt more anxious and have experienced some added depression because I am so bored and I spend a lot of time in my room. And the work, I used to have a job and a set schedule of when I worked and I miss not being able to work. Staff have to go shopping for me and there are many things I would love to buy, like CD's, hair dye, pop and snacks. I can't get any of the things I want, it is limited to the things I need. Please don't forget about me when you are making decisions about how to help people through this virus.
