Q: My husband battled several health problems the last two years. My entire identity became wrapped up in caring for him. Now that the struggle is over, I feel empty and lost as well as grieved. I honestly don’t know where to turn or what to do next?

Greetings District 36. I want to continue to recognize and thank all those living in District 36 who have been called to duty to serve others while making great sacrifices. As we forge through this extraordinarily unsettled time, we often hear the term “unprecedented” used to describe the circumstances and the challenges ahead. To me, the good news is that despite accounts of epoch struggles throughout the history of mankind, we continue to persevere, and we do this community by community. The length of strides made is based on the strength of the communities.


Q: My financial portfolio has taken a huge hit in recent months. I’m trying to keep a good perspective; after all, “money is the root of all evil,” right? But I’m still struggling with the idea that everything I have leaned on for security is in jeopardy. Do you have any advice?

Restrictions Being Lifted Too Soon? That Would Be My Thought

The National Collegiate Athletic Association says it’s OK for college football teams to start training again, with some restrictions, giving a glimmer of hope that there will be football to pre-occupy our otherwise addled brains this fall.


Q: I’ve always had a tendency to worry, but it’s gotten worse in recent weeks with everything that has happened in the world. I know worrying doesn’t help -- what I need to know is how to stop. Help?

Greetings District 36. COVID-19 continues to impact every aspect of our lives. It is important we stay informed and up-to-date on developments with the pandemic. I want to remind you all that as the State begins to open up, we should continue to practice social distancing. Keep six feet apart in public places like grocery stores and offices. Wear a mask when out in public, wash your hands with soap and hot water, and clean often used surfaces. These measures will help keep our communities healthy and the number of infections down.
