“I'm no longer employed...on disability and social security, but money is still a stress and struggle which creates anxiety. My current job is writing and right now I'm having to push myself very, very hard to even get an outline done. I'm depressed and filled with ennui, and life doesn't make sense. And, so, I am working on an absurdist short/long story full of absurdity. Even without a 40 hour week, work causes stress, but we can't live in bubbles. Sometimes you gotta push and push.”
