I am María G., I am 39 years old, I am the mother of 2 children, I live in Uruguay and I am a secretary of management and for 3 years. I have been dedicated to housework because my daughters are young (3 and 4 years old) and I must dedicate myself to the formation and care of them. My husband is a public employee and fortunately he provides everything for our livelihood.

With the COVID-19 everything has been transformed and somehow I would say that things get complicated day by day, the confinement is depressing, although there are already times when we can go to the parks with the girls, the possibility of being able to infect us full of fear and uncertainty and we ended up staying at home for the good of all.

One of the positive things about this pandemic is being able to have my husband at home 24 hours a day since the girls can enjoy his company. He has known how to distribute his time between work and home. Time passes slowly and the echo of silence is accentuated in my head.

I need to visit my father, we used to visit him as a family on weekends and share a delicious lunch, I miss him a lot. Although we communicate daily by phone and by video hugs and advice are needed. We avoid going out as much as possible, we do not even go to the supermarket, we ask for everything we need at home and when the order arrives we disinfect it thoroughly.

I already want this to end, it depresses me to listen to the news as the case report increases daily and the deaths are increasing. Although we do not have economic problems I am concerned about the lives of many people who do not have enough resources to cope with this difficult situation.
