Sometimes don't you just want to SCREAM

 I think that we all have days when we want to scream and can understand when someone does. Especially during these crazy Covid pandemic times. I think that everyone has their own personal issues and then we just add the layers of dealing with others, politics, finances, health, personal believes, faith and we just get blasted with social media and it's overwhelming. As a nurse that gets to review inpatient hospital stays I can honestly say that people are having more mental health admissions, suicide attempts, alcohol and drug related admissions, accidents and then just not going to the doctor so more late diagnosis of cancers, heart disease and many conditions.
 That's why I make my cards to de-stress. Please remember to find time for "you" and take care of yourself. Hugs.

Brilliant card Lisa- love the image, and sentiment- we all feel like that sometimes! I agree with you about the stress the pandemic and all the resulting restrictions to medical care have added to our lives, it must be so difficult for everyone working in health sectors not to be able to provide the usual level of care for all the other conditions and needs that have been pushed to one side. Take care of yourself and kep crafting!

That sentiment is so true and we all need to give a scream sometimes (or go for a good walk).

I am in love with this card! During the Pandemic, for the whole year and 1/2 I saw 11 people, most of them nurses or doctor appointments that I couldn't miss. This coming weekend is my husbands birthday and I am having a small gathering of 2 couple + me & hubby all of us vaccinated. I can't wait!
