A safe place to scream into the void

Many of you are processing the impact of COVID-19 on your livelihood, family, and sense of self.  Some of you are open about it and share your concerns publicly.  This can provide a feeling of relief to others reading, knowing that they're not alone in feeling the things they're feeling.

We've created this post to act as a "Post Secret"* type of electronic repository, where magicians can ANONYMOUSLY document things that they may not want to share on their own social media.  We're hoping this repository can serve two purposes:
  1. To let others in the community know that they are not alone in feeling what they're feeling.
  2. By putting in writing the thoughts in your head, it may help you to dwell on them less and provide some catharsis.

To participate:
  1. Comment ANONYMOUSLY on this post.
  2. Do NOT identify yourself.
  3. You may state whether you're full time, part time, or semi-retired.
  4. You may state the number of years you've been in the business.
  5. You may state what country you are from.
  6. Do NOT use profanity. 
  7. This is not a place to ask about or reveal the secrets of magical effects.

If your life is in danger or you know someone’s life is in danger DIAL EMERGENCY NOW (often 911 in your area) DO NOT HESITATE!

* From Wikipedia: Post Secret is an ongoing community mail art project, created by Frank Warren in 2005, in which people mail their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Selected secrets are then posted on the Post Secret website, or used for Post Secret's books or museum exhibits.
