One last Irma/Maria update

  • My mom just called me and let me know that she was able to reach my dad earlier. He’s fine (but needs his diabetes meds asap). I’m going to try to put together a care package for him, but it might take some time because I’ve never done that before.

Now for the not so good news (including a death of someone I knew as a child):

  • Unfortunately, one of our neighbors passed away yesterday in a storm related accident. I don’t remember the guy very well, but he was nice. I’m just kind of in shock. He survived both Irma and Maria and then died in a damn accident. What the hell?
  • I’m back in my dorm and back in class. We’re trying to catch up on what we’ve missed during the storm and it’s been a bit tough. I’m just so tired and so are my classmates.
  • I honestly feel like I’m walking through fog. I’m just so tired all the time because I’ve been on edge for almost two straight weeks. I’m going to try making an appointment with my psychiatrist but I don’t know if he’ll be free and also he’s from Puerto Rico so I don’t want to burden him with my problems right now.
