City Series – Shifa Ijaz in Faisalabad, Pakistan, We the Isolationists (230th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Shifa Ijaz]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona… and I see myself being anxious all the time. I close my eyes and I see the trauma coming back to me which I thought I have healed from long ago. I see bitter memories and sad shared smiles which I thought I have forgotten. I see myself losing again in front of all that I thought I have left behind in my journey. I see my triggers all over the place in hopelessness. I close my eyes and I see myself in constant fear. Fear of uncertainty. Fear of losing. Fear of this time.
