I am feeling so many things because of this pandemic we are in. My depression is being exacerbated. I missed out on being able to celebrate my 30th birthday (which was last Monday - March 23rd) and I am struggling to make ends meet. It doesn’t help that every time I claim for unemployment, my claim is “not payable.” I also feel like I’m rotting away because I am just stuck at home. I’ve left the house a total of 3 times to buy groceries and essentials. That’s it. I feel so hopeless. Does anyone feel the same way?
As of right now, I feel even worse about myself. So far today, I’ve seen countless posts on social media with people bragging about having jobs in this crisis. Maybe it’s just me in my feelings but I wonder if these people ever bother taking others into account? Surely, I am not the only one who is unemployed at this time... and surely, these people who keep bragging about having jobs have friends who are in the same boat as me. Some people just love waving their lives in other people’s faces... and frankly, it just drives me up a wall. Maybe it’s because I’m not the type to brag about things. It’s like their shoving my misfortune in my face.
That’s the end of my rant! Haha!
To the FGB community: If you’re jobless at this time, how are you coping? How do you feel about everything that is going on? Can anyone relate to how I feel?
