I was delighted when I discovered Five Minutes. They publish micro memoirs of 100 words about five minutes in one's life. My piece, This Year, was published this week.
For the past year and a half, my family has been struggling with the aftermath of long COVID. Last week, I published this essay, Parenting with Long COVID Is the Nightmare No One Talks About, in Tiny Beans. It was a hard topic to explore, but I hope other families affected by Long COVID and other devastating chronic illnesses feel a little less alone when they read it.
