Somehow, all the bad feelings i've been feeling for the past couple of days may have just dissipated. This sudden sickness feels just like my typical annual flu which can be cured with enough rest and good healthy diet.
There's just really only one thing left for me unchecked that is a second swab to see if I have completely eliminated the virus.
I have an old friend who's on a self destructive spiral (I think it's a lot of stuff but especially drugs) and I feel almost guilty not because I did anything but because there's nothing I can do to help him. They don't even want to talk to me. What bothers me most is that everything was normal a few years ago and now it's like I don't even know him. I had a similar problem with a relative a few years ago and everyone tells me "It's not your problem, they made their bed let them lay in it" but it's still so awful.
@KolpSlack It starts with trying to determine why it stopped working in the first place. Because it was working just fine until my dad unplugged it from the TV for whatever reason, and now I can't get it working again.
After about 30 minutes of trying to fix it to no avail, I tried ejecting the tape (a video of Bill Nye the Science Guy about space) and the tape got ruined. This is part of what prompted the breakdown.
I just… don't want this to be a failure like everything else I've ever been involved in.
Welp either the economy will collapse or war with China happens. I don't care which because if either happens it will be because of these lockdowns being reimposed and destroying the economy. 32% loss of gdp if this goes on for another fucking year. Not to mention the ballooning debt and possible collapse of the dollar…..maybe suicide isn't so much of a bad thing….
