So my kid is coming up on 2 and the majority of his teeth have finally decided to come in pretty much all at once (he had like 4 before this), The specialist I had to see said you have a collapsed L3, here is pain meds, muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory and there is nothing else we can do at this time because of the virus.

Owners of the house I am renting decided to sell before the market craters (my property manager said that's what she expects and shes been in the business 40+ years, thinks it will be worse than 08-09 time frame) so now I have to figure out where, when, legal options if they try to force me out before the end of the lease (property manager already briefed me but I am gonna try to move before the end of lease).

we are starting up weekend drill again and yet no child care is available because of the virus risks...

I am still working on my masters, and cannot take a break because my school and the VA are in a tiff right now and if I stop going for any reason the VA will not pay for restarting so I will have to find a new school risking having to redo classes.

Now with the mercury really starting to climb, the AC unit took a dump after 1700 so everything is closed..

Oh and the pending economic apocalypse, potential double whammy with the wu flu making a reappearance come the fall.

FFS I work pretty good under pressure but I am reaching my limit, I need a bloody break.

I sympathize, but it's called life brother. Man up, do what you have to do, and stop whining about it.

I don't mean "stop whining" as an insult, by any means. I'm sure you are just venting your frustration.

I'm assuming you are a male (perhaps incorrectly), but irrelevant anyway. You obviously have ppl depending on you, and being stoic, in the face of adversity, not only builds character, but also makes those around you, and depending on you feel safe, and at ease.

I know, being a veteran, you have faced adversity before. Buck up, what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.

Tough love?

Maybe, but feeling sorry for ones self never got me anywhere.

No worries no hard feelings, to avoid yelling at the wife in front of the kid I complain here till I can talk to her in a normal fashion.

Probably no healthy but I suppose its better than running to the bar with a friend and drinking and complaining.

Not a terrible approach, using a forum to vent.

Don't underestimate the value of a stiff drink, with a "true" friend every once in a while though.

And yes, yelling/fighting in front of children is no good.

Carry on. You seem to have a handle on reality.

Good luck. Keep a proper perspective. It will all work out.
