  1. Wow, so interesting that you lived in Wuhan right before the pandemic, and as a black woman! I was so interested after reading the title that l wanted to know more about your story. You give me hope and I appreciate you sharing.

  2. There was a time when my son and I had to live in a hotel for a while after losing my job and home. It was a very embarrassing time for me because I had lots of family in the city around me but nobody offered us their homes. That gave the illusion that it was something “wrong” with me. I know people secretly wondered why my family didn’t help me at this time but I pushed on. We eventually moved to another state and started over again but the stigma of it all still lingers with me to this day.
