Thank you, Ed! Yes, it’s been challenging. Even my therapist has commented that I’ve had an unusually bad luck. She thinks I should move — it looks like I probably will in the next few years (for unrelated reasons).
I appreciate the words of encouragement! I take breaks when I need them, keep my standards high and expectations low, and try to retain my sense of humor!
I think you should publish your story on Medium! I would definitely read it and it might benefit others!
