Hey Groupthink,

Nothing super substantive to contribute but just got back from a country music festival with my parents in the midwest - very out of the ordinary for me, and I’ve consumed several alcoholic beverages. I normally live on the East Coast but have now taken FMLA for the next two months after trying to work remotely. I don’t know what the future holds. My life is basically crap either way, and I’m too old (30+) to chalk it up to trying things and not knowing. I’ve got 8 weeks. Counseling, yes. Medication is helping me feel better. I’m contemplating a trip out west....but will lost income starting in two weeks. I love hiking and running, just really really really alone right now.
