how do you do it?

i don’t understand how all of these people i know are able to pick up and start over so fast… i don’t see how anyone can just jump into school, job house etc within a week of being demoted to refugee status from full time job, health insurance, house, and two cars…

i don’t know… i know my wife and i are on the ball and have plans but we seem to be moving so slow compared to others we know who already have jobs, housing and more… plus i kind of feel bad taking red cross money, i have a family who is helping me and there are those so much worse off than me… of course i’m homeless and mostly jobless so i guess i just need to bite the bullet and head down to stand in line like the rest of my fellow evacuees/refugees…

  • It’s only been a week. I can’t imagine how people can already be starting over.. I think even people who seem to be on the ball are going to be dealing with it for a long time too. It sounds like you guys are doing a really great job so far in handling everything. Take your time and do it right and don’t feel bad about taking Red Cross money, it’s to help you too. I’m thinking about all of you… my mom would like to get in touch with your mom, can you email me contact info for her? Thanks 🙂
