I am going very much insane. This current state of the pandemic is frightening. Even though schools are open, I’m hearing of 17,000 cases being reported every day, and so many deaths. With all this, how are people supposed to go to work and school. Shouldn’t we mourn? To me, this is inhumane. But I really can't speak about lockdown since I technically haven’t been isolated from friends due to seeing them everyday at school.
Art can definitely play a therapeutic role, especially if you’re a bit closed and finding words to describe situations is hard for you. Here, in Russia, therapy is taboo, many people don’t believe it works or they see it as a waste of money. It’s hard to find a therapist that’s affordable and highly qualified. For teenagers it’s also hard to get your parent's permission, some also need therapists that are LGBT friendly, and God knows few can ask their parents for such a thing.
