    I was browsing the online forums after a bit of a cry and realized a lot of people seem to be in the same boat as me. I noticed how much good reading through the posts helped me, and I wanted to jump in. So here it goes -

    Hi, my name is dwarfstar. I'm in retail and haven't had much luck with work since the pandemic. I find it's harder to find joy in the little things now the days are really starting to blend together. That's something I'm hoping to change. Thank goodness for pets!!

    Talk soon.
