23. Thank you for this. I needed it.

Iíve turned in to such a wimp. Iíve had a hard time through this, and I get mad at myself. So many people have had it worse. I should be stronger.

I lost my job when all of this started and I havenít found anything. There was a time where I wasnít looking too hard because I thought COVID would be a thing of the past, but as time stretched out, I started looking earnestly. I have had a few interviews but nothing has materialized. I have one tomorrow morning, so please say a prayer for me. Itís an in-person appointment, and I admit to being fearful having to go and sit in a room with strangers not knowing the precautions they follow. I will mask up and distance, take hand sanitizer and take my own bottle of water.

Things are starting to break, which stresses me out even when life is normal and regular. But especially now.

My heating/cooling system is in need of service and I just noticed that my truck had some oil under it when it was parked.

Iím a wimp because in the grand scheme of things these are such minor things to contend with. But Iím alone and itís hard not to just lose it sometimes.

It gives me hope that others have some hope, so thanks for your post.
