What We Need - Terry

May 22, 2020

My name is Terry and I live in Burlington, Iowa. The virus has impacted me in the sense that I have been experiencing more anxiety than usual because I am worried about my family. I am not able to see them and they can't come visit. I have some depression because I haven't seen my family since February. I have spring fever too, when it is very nice out, it is hard to accept the fact that I can't go anywhere. I can't buy anything I really want because staff have to go shopping for me and they aren't able to go as often and are not able to buy things that non-essential. I haven't been able to see my therapist or caseworker, all the "appointments" have been over the phone and that is very hard for me, I would rather be with them in person. Please don't forget about me and my needs when you are deciding how to help people during this virus.
