Lakshmi and Jacci discuss the wide range of emotions that arise while living in a pandemic. The episode kicks off with Lakshmi sharing the experience of a patient whose condition was dramatically affected by coronavirus — but not in the way you might expect.
The co-hosts explore their emotional responses to the pandemic and share the stories of close friends who have had complicated experiences with fertility, adoption, dating, and relationships. Toilet paper as a romantic gesture is also discussed.
I think this feeling of having your hands tied — not moving life forward, the way you would like to move it forward ... gets frustrating.
