I lost my business off the back of the last financial crisis and it's taken since then to get back to anything like normality.
Our family's life changed overnight when that happened. I had 4 children all under the age of ten to support and massively eye watering debts to deal with after spending a year borrowing and personally guaranteeing loans and overdrafts to make sure the business stayed afloat and the staff were always paid.
I've never quite been the same since then. I lost my swagger and my confidence has never returned to the levels that it was before the hit.
I was prescribed anti depressants but being old school I couldn't admit that to my wife that I was taking them. Although I stopped after a few months as I felt like a zombie. I could function better with a hangover than the effects of the pills.
A lot of marriages would have crumbled under the strain. I'm not the easiest to live with at the best of times. But we got through it and things were going great until this crisis hit.
These financial packages give us a real fighting chance of survival and her tears were those of relief as much as anything else.
A bit of a look at me post I know and not my normal style to admit fragility.
This really could be the end of Trump. Biden has been so much better on Covid 19.
🔥@Yamiche: You said that you don’t take responsibility, but you did disband the WH #pandemic office...so what responsibility do you take to that? Officials in that office say that you lost valuable time.
