I'm a wedding musician here in Brazil, so this crisis is hitting me really hard (a lot of cancellations, suspensions and so on). A famous and rich "digital influencer" was infected in her sister's wedding in the beginning of the month here in Brazil (a guest coming from Aspen was sick without knowing at the time), so even before the lockdown, people was asking for cancellations. I'm at home only working on music transcriptions (I'm also a copyst).

I don't know who this Dr Jack (ass?) is, but he has absolutely no sympathy for the common working man. As he states, he is in no financial hardship over this situation. I get the feeling that he has never been in financial trouble and can't relate to any kind of person who has.
Ok. Well, I suppose people can go about their business, go to work, get paid, and then die from the virus, right? Or they can choose to stay home. I don't see how the latter is "no sympathy for the common working man" when "the common working man" is the person who would survive, right?
Did you listen to the link?

My point was, basically, that this guy can't relate to the reality of so many people. Maybe your idea of what a "common working man" is differs from mine. Anyway, things are so ridiculous right now that I can barely function. The property I have been living in for the past five years has been sold. The new owners gave us thirty days to get the hell out. Nice timing, right? I'm getting prepared to move one thousand miles back to my home town in one week. Got a truck and a car dolly reserved, but who knows if I'll actually be able to travel by that time. If that is the case, I'll be homeless and jobless. I'm a machinist by trade, not a professional audio guy who can work remotely in any way. I currently do one off and prototype work for the likes of HP, Seagate, and many other critical (government connected) companies. I probably won't be able to find a job in the same range. My Mastercam skills will help, along with my drive and determination. But, who knows.

I have never seen anything like this. People are completely losing it. I just want to be able to buy some organic ground beef again ...

(Nothing against you personally. I have read and have enjoyed many of your thoughtful posts)
I've listened to the link. And it seems doctor Jack is at the end of his energy coping with this crisis. He just wants a bit of recognition for the people in the health services that are by the way saving your life when it comes to that?!

So I totally dig that!

I have the feeling that you feel very sorry for yourself and think that your (financial) crisis is worse that somebody else’s? But you’re wrong! Lots of people are barely coping at the moment. Me too! But at least I’m alive and healthy for the moment.

Your still healthy and not fighting for your life, are you? So get over it and deal with it! It’s just bricks and money you’re talking about! Not your life!
You’ll be amazed what you can achieve when you’re with your back against the wall and if you actually want to live? I’ve been there and I’m prepared for that again if necessary!

So stop whining about your situation and what you’ve lost and start looking for what you might gain from this situation!

Life is not only about security and mortgages! See it as new start. No home and no income. You’re totally free! You just need food and a place to sleep. And you’ll be amazed how basic life actual needs to be to be able survive? And how inspiring it can be to really start from scratch again?

Like I said, I’ve been there and I’m ready to go there again if necessary!

Just don’t go pi**ing on people like doctor Jack that only wants some recognition for the people that can save your life? Remember! If you get sick and doctor Jack is not there to help you, you’ll die!

And if all the money you have/had an/or the stones you had as a roof are gone? You might as well give it a try while your still alive in whatever circumstance you may get? You can always kill yourself if you can’t cope or don’t like it?

But if doctor Jack and his crew is not there to help you if you get sick? You'll probably die? So again! don't bite the hand that feeds you!

And always remember this! The worst thing that could possibly happen is that you die!

Fair enough. I feel you need a soulmate that feels the same pain as you do?

As of next Monday I have no income and will be living of my savings that will get me going for maybe 1.5 max 2 months. If I don't get income after that I'll probably be in the same situation as you are? No home and on my own. But like I said, I've been in this situation for the duration of about 3 years before about 15 years ago.

I can tell you. The first few days it looks like life stops and your world has come to an end. So you can either leave it at that and die in some corner or you can try to want to survive.

Obviously I choose to survive. It took me a few years to get back where I am now. I was already skilled as an IT engineer so eventually I could get back via that track. So I've managed as a contractor until now? My outfall back then was related job loss and depression. It took me over a year to solve those issues and about the same time to fight my way back to where I am now.

You have a trade 'machinist'. That will literally get you back on track once the Corona crisis has settled! After this we will need people like you again. So try to hang in there. And believe me, this is not the end of the world! This is just a setback that will be cleared soon!
