A quote from Diana's blog. It says: "I feel that my ability to grieve has been affected by COVID-19. I was completely on my own after my husband’s death during the first lockdown; I felt anxious for weeks and didn’t leave the house. There was no contact with anyone, no hugs and no visits until restrictions were lifted and I was able to make a bubble with my daughter and her two boys."Diana's story
