Living with lung cancer is complicated on a regular day, but the global COVID-19 pandemic is creating an entirely new set of complications: shopping, accessing medical care, and getting some fresh air and exercise take on new complexity. As quarantine fatigue increased, so too has the stress and anxiety about the reopening of workplaces and restaurants.
