(CNN)Michelle Obama is reminding Americans practicing social distancing because of the coronavirus that no matter what they're going through, they "aren't alone."

"These past few weeks have been scary and difficult for many of us," the former first lady said Monday in an Instagram post.
"We just don't have a roadmap for what we're currently experiencing -- that in and of itself can bring up feelings of anxiety, loneliness, and fear. Not to mention the worry we feel about the health and safety of our parents, children, and loved ones and the financial security of so many families."
