Quarantine Portrait Series: Mike, Very Stressed

My brother Mike is in the hospital. Even if he was nearby I wouldn’t be able to visit because of the COVID19 quarantine. I’m sure COVID is the reason that they are offering video visits. The only problem with visiting my brother in video mode is that Mike is nonverbal, autistic and low functioning. I never felt that Mike recognizes me as his brother. I spend the call saying his name and watching for a reaction.

The only way I used to connect with Mike was by touching him.
