Do you believe in medicinal marijuana? Perhaps consider some research into it and cbd products as well. I have many friends and colleagues that have implemented this and it works great for them

Feel the same way. Create a routine, it helps. And I’m not talking about a high level routine. Really dig deep and set a certain amount of time for each task that you have to do. And don’t be super hard on yourself, celebrate small wins.. this was never going to be the most productive time of our lives. It will get better - stay strong

You’re not alone! I’d highly recommend talking to a therapist - it can really help! Stay strong, we’ll get through this ✊🏼

Also not sure if i should be looking for a studio or 1br for more space but at a much higher price tag that i have to pay for. Any thoughts?

Anyone dealt with your sibling getting divorced and the SIL fallout? My brother is going though a divorce and it is ugly. She is saying he is “unfit” (he is not). He has a 32 yr old who I am very close to, and a 12 yr old who is my goddaughter. His ex was my bff and now she says he is an unfit father and trying to take away his parental rights. I am stunned. It has fractured us beyond what I thought possible. Do I stay neutral for the nieces? Do I shout at the top of my lungs he is a good guy?
