Alex, I’m SO SORRY. I can’t imagine what that must feel like on top of everything else your going through. It’s important that you keep your stress level down through all of this. Maybe adopt some positive montras to remind you that right now you are ok, and not to focus too much on the future, just do what you can in the moment because the future is not in your control.
I also want to say that I appreciate your “Embrace The Vegetable” attitude and it has inspired me to feed myself better.
The Oregon Trail card can be a blessing, and you should go apply right away if you intend to use it.
