Hang in there, Kyra.....we are all in this together. I understand that my tummy ache does not make your tummy ache feel any better, but those of us that survive will do so because we know that we are not alone in this, and will do whatever needs to be done to weather the storm.....and hopefully, expecially here in California, we will finally remember this at the polls, and do a little house cleaning, sweeping out the politicians that have insulated themselves from all of this with taxpayer-paid-for perks.
