    #27 - Patti Murin, One Day at a Time

    Princess Anna and Mental Health Warrior, Patti Murin, joins us to share what it’s like to be pregnant during COVID-19. From Cadbury egg cravings to enduring 5 weeks of what was presumably the virus, growing a human in quarantine has definitely been a challenge, but her “one day at a time” mentality has helped her cope in ways she never anticipated. Having always been open about her struggles with anxiety and depression, Patti feels more equipped than most to handle the emotional impacts of self-isolation, and helping others through what feels like “The Mental Health Olympics” is feeding her soul in a way she never imagined.
