Hello Mark,

It's good to hear from you again. I am glad you are still hanging in there. Life is difficult for me. Still have a lockdown with this virus. Fighting against depression every day. It is not so easy. I just try to get through one day at a time myself. It must be really difficult if you can't visit your dad and children. Are you able to work now? Does this virus make it difficult to do business?
I hope and pray you are well. Good to see a message from you.

Your Friend,

James

Thank you Mark. It is difficult for me to cope with. It's good you are able to do some business, but it is difficult. My mind goes crazy, it is difficult to cope with. My wife is divorcing me also, so I will have to find another place to live. A lot to cope with for my depressed brain. Just trying to plod along day by day. I haven't been working. You always find a way to cope even in the most difficult conditions, and you have certainly had a difficult time of it. I pray you are able to cope with all of it. Thanks for reaching out. I am happy to receive a message from you. Take care.

The lockdown is very stressful. Quite difficult for me as well. I am trying to cope with it but it is quite difficult. Life is already difficult. This makes it even worse. Life is quite a struggle and you have managed so many very difficult times in the last couple of years. I am happy you are posting here. It is great to hear from you. I hope we can see each other through these very difficult times. I am not sure how long it will last. It seems to me the lockdown and business closings are worse than the virus. Take care of yourself. I pray things can improve.

Hi mark don’t know if you remember me from sone time ago but you help keep me alive in some of the darkest times of my life and yes this lockdown and virus outbreak is giving us all every excuse to sink into the dark solitude of ourselves if we let it but you’ve been fighting this long don’t sink into it find that silver lining and go that way stay safe x

Hello Mark!

Good to hear from you again! I know it is difficult. I am in Czech Republic. The virus problem is not so bad here anymore. Of course, I am still struggling with my own mental problems. I was thinking of going back to the U.S., but the country has a lot of problems now. Virus out of control and riots. I hope it will calm down.

I know it is difficult. Not much access to psychiatric care. It is difficult to cope with all of this. My mental state was not so good to begin with. It's good you are able to do some work. I know you have been through a lot over the past couple of years. I hope some things have calmed down for you.

My life is in turmoil. Nothing is stable. I am still in Czech Republic now, but I don't know for how long. I have ongoing marital problems. I'm just trying to survive day to day.

Take Care,

James
