Symptoms worse due to quarantine/COVID?
Post: 

Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone else's Trich symptoms have worsened due to anxiety in relation to the COVID-19 crisis and/or being in quarantine. I know mine has gone off the charts, and was just looking to see how you guys are managing your symptoms. Glad to have found this!
