How did COVID-19 for you?

Hey... How did you guys handle the situation?
What happened for you the last six months?
Are you guys okay?

Here in The Netherlands COVID-19 is real. But somehow not in my family, relatives or colleagues at work.
It seems like something is out there, but just not for me.
So we follow the guidelines and nothing happens.

I was sent home by my colleagues from work, overstrained in the first week of March of this year to get some rest.
Then the schools closed due to COVID-19 and instead of needed rest I got to take care of three kids and homeschool them.
This caused a severe burn-out.

Then my mother-in-law passed away unexpectedly after a sickbed of only 3 weeks (cancer), I had to take place in conversations about euthanasia of my own father (dementia), my brother had a fire at his place and lived with my family for 2 weeks with his dogs (and we already live with 2 adults and 3 young kids), our 2 week holiday consisted of remodelling the attic into a bedroom, and we had euthanize our cat due to complications.
So I got depressed.

Things are starting to get better now since two weeks, but this has been the worst period of my life.

How are things for you guys?
