Looking back at 2020 | Doctor Anne

I have done different kind of Recap posts on this blog over the years: Some that listed the most popular posts of a year, others that summarized what I had written in the past month.

Well, last year was different than the others, which is why I am here looking back at 2020, not in terms of most popular blog posts (there weren´t as many anyway), but in terms of how…
