You’re in Australia, right? Was it strange to go back to normal life?
It was really strange for me because I had Covid and I was in a hospital for 40 days, so I spent a lot of time on my own, so going back to normal life, for me, was really weird. I suffered so much social anxiety. Yeah, I don’t know after being in solitary confinement for so long, it just felt so weird to me to be amongst people. I also felt guilty or shameful—just all of those kinds of things—so it took a while for me to reintegrate back into society.
But I’m not sure if it’s normal fully, yet. It just changes up and down. If we had this interview last week, it would be normal, but then we had a little flare-up over the weekend, and so now we’re back to wearing masks in my city. I think we’ve now grown used to having a lot of freedom, which I am so grateful for, but we also still have to be prepared for changes at any given moment.
