March's Mental Health Column: Coping with Coronavirus Pandemic

Click on icon for full paper
Greetings from Holland
Our MEBO Mental Health Director reaches out to us yet again to guide us in times of trouble, especially now during this worldwide crisis - the COVID19 Pandemic.

"It is my belief that even though this is a very difficult and trying situation for all, TMAU, malodor and PATM sufferers might already have certain coping skills, that can help us get through these difficult times...some of us have lived or are still living socially isolated lives...tried to avoid crowds of people social contacts and now everybody across the globe has to do this?" (Click on tulips picture above for full paper)

Wishing you much strength and health! You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Take care,              

We thank Crissan for her steadfast dedication to our community as she understands us, she gets us, and she uplifts us each step of the way throughout the years. Thank you Crissan!
