What a horrific convergence of our current crises. Former Playboy model commits suicide while in quarantine. She was a domestic violence victim & (then, relatedly it seems) battled substance abuse issues. We let this happen, again & again & again. https://t.co/UvP9xYvw4i

The only part of the stay-at-home order I have is this. Knowing how difficult it can be for those struggling with mental health, loneliness, depression, substance abuse issues. My dm is always open.
