Jane Basson - UK
My inspiration came from the fact that my social anxiety is usually hidden from others behind a mask of gregariousness. I struggle constantly to overcome my feelings of panic in social situations. The first lockdown gave me physical barriers and I found I was conflicted. I actually missed social interaction but, at the same time, I felt protected. This conflict was a revelation to me. Lockdown also allowed my husband and I to reconnect as we had time for each other after busy careers and family commitments.
