How is your first quarter of 2021? I hope is better than that of 2020.

Are there challenges that you are facing at the moment aside from the pandemic concerns? I am having difficulties with my kid's homeschooling - I am a bit stressed with it. And still in the period of adjustment. ;(

Kids are terrible. I can’t stand them. But the good news is that they will grow up and usually (in most cases) become wonderful people and they will take care of you and you will become a child again.

I have been doing home health physical therapy throughout the pandemic. A lot of the nurses who work at my agencies are older, and when this first started, myself and one of the other therapists were talking and we thought it very unlikely we would all make it through the year. Well, a year later and we all made it.

I can only imagine how tough homeschooling thing must be. I used to work with special ed kids. I can't imagine what some of them are going through.

I have been feeling a little ground down at work. it's been a super challenging year. There is hope on the horizon, though. It is spring anyway.

Hey I used to live in Maryland. Where in MD are you?

Indeed, very challenging. You have to allocate your time doing household chores, working and teaching the kids of the lessons you have forgotten. It feels like I'm the one who is studying and the kids where the ones teaching me :smile: By the way @blackgreen15 I'm looking for an inspiration nowadays to uplift my spirit. Maybe you can also try it, I'm engaging myself in Basic Yoga moves, but ask first your physical therapist if its recommended to you.

Oh thats a big YES! it is indeed a difficulty. Our fam is just new to homeschooling. It is a whole new adjustment at the same time working. I am reading in advance on whatever the lessons would be to easily teach or facilitate my daughter. And she asks TONS of questions. Sometimes I got irritated by it that I become irrate. We are still managing things on how to cope up with everything. But honestly, we are a bit far behind the lessons. ;(

With Covid going on and all other stressful things in life, I am really really exhausted. Damn! Sometimes I want to end everything and be gone...But I am thinking about my kid that's why I am trying to hold on. ;(

A good and concerned neighbor told me to see a counselor in order to help me out. I am browsing and searching online. Have you tried talking to one? How helpful is it?
