      “He’s finding it impossible to concentrate at school and has lost interest in the activities he used to love”. I am also facing the same situation. It’s hard to get inspired again. Maybe it’s because age affects too much lolbeans

      Thank you for letting me know. I haven’t had time to read this book yet, but I think that now is exactly the moment when I need it.

Books like this, I think, are a very good way to support our mental health and think about what is going on in our own lives at the moment. cbd oil 20%
