Taking care of yourself: 

Maybe also think of 20mg of CBD by mouth once or twice a day as well.  It has worked well for a lot of people to help keep their anxiety under control and get some sleep.  We like CBDistillery products (click here)  I am taking some myself nowadays.

We will get through this together.  Let's try to take care of ourselves and each other as we do.
