“Lockdown has evoked a lot of emotions for many people,” the media personality wrote.
About the challenges she recently faced, the soap star explained, “Some days were incredibly difficult. Dark. Unworkable.
‘When my mother was in intensive care, I could barely function. It seemed as if I could only cry. I couldn’t get older. My inner child yearned for my mother’s touch …
So I felt ashamed / mother to blame for not being able to ‘mother’ my own son. I’m lucky – I have a brilliant, practical husband who has supported us the most. Some people don’t have anyone. I can’t imagine that.
“Along with a huge change in my hormonal balance – last month was nothing short of horrible.”
