Check-ins have been a soothing balm during the pandemic, and I am forever grateful for the Speqtrum team and the heart that they've shared during this time.
What brought me to Speqtrum was a combination of desperation and loneliness. During the early stages of the pandemic I was going through what many were going through, but I was feeling the loss of my queer community really deeply.
The validation I've experienced during check-ins has turned days where I've struggled with suicidality into days of contentment. I know this doesn't outline a specific situation, but like many others, this year has been a rollercoaster. I would be hard pressed to find something specific that has been more helpful than the next.
Ultimately, this program is one of the reasons I have made it through the harder seasons of this pandemic.
