Wow first time I've seen Nov mentioned but I won't engage in speculation.
My MH doesn't have the capacity to "gamble" lol.
Day by day & minute to minute during my work days. News is off.
My Year 12 son is enrolled in a school a LONG way down South (but has been living at home most of lock down thank God)... received a Survey tonight for Year 12 students to VOTE about whether to hold the HSC Exams (which he is FOR for statistical reasons) or whether to ditch them all together and use marks all ready from previous assessments - which sucks for rational reasons. OUT goes any rational thinking. Who cares about them?
There ARE ways to hold exams - safely.
And my others in Year 12 don't quite have as much invested in the HSC as South son or p.son as I call him.
And another child in Year 11 who's like a pig in mud learning from home - far higher marks now and FAR better "attendance" because she never has to attend lol! She hates school but is very studious.
My work is nuts since LD.
My deepest anxiety is around homelessness rising, businesses going bust, people starving.
I work in the Community with families and it's extremely stressful NOT being able to help them. Much.
I called 2 helplines around 4am this morning. One said "this is not really the line for you" so I called the one she gave me. After explaining my anxiety - they hung up. No real response! No goodbye. Nothing.
If I was a person in a worse state than I am, HOPING for help then raking up the courage TO call a "help" line, only to feel worse BECAUSE I phoned a helpline. WOAH THOSE ARE ISSUES.
Issues that don't seem to be resolved with "help" lines. Help my foot. It's disgraceful.
So if I can't get earthly support to support around 6000 ppl, ummm wow.
It's God all the way!
