Hi Jenny D, thank you for all of your posts today!

I am sorry to hear that you had a rough day yesterday. Getting a COVID test can be tough as is, and not feeling well afterwards can be hard. You are absolutely correct: we are all human and many of us experience the odd ’off’ day. It is great that you took a day off of work, as self-care is really important.

The pandemic has changed a lot of our routines and many of us are not seeing our family/friends as much as we used to, which can have an impact on our mood. While being sad is a normal reaction to such events, constantly feeling this way can be difficult and it can have a negative impact. It’s good to check in with your doctor, mental health professional, and your family/friends to make sure that you are getting the support that you need and deserve, especially since the support groups aren’t currently available to you. You can also check out additional tips here. Hope this helps!
