This piece explores a mental health challenge in a young girl and how she is triggered by her family’s financial stress while shopping for groceries during the global Covid pandemic. I was inspired to dig through some memories, and what kept popping up with the challenge of my anxiety and Sensory Processing Disorder and dealing with that as a young kid. I imagined it as if my childhood was taking place now during the pandemic. I went through the memory and filled in some blank spots with details that made sense. But the skeleton of it is a true story.
