It’s not for lack of trying. Or pain medication. Or easing my mind with every conceivable trick known.
My job at the old university ended. I was a political pawn the governor did not like. I was forced out by my whole department. I liked one dude there, the same dude who hired me, but everyone else I just never liked that much.
Starting a new job as an associate professor a few weeks from now. Much better university. At a much better school. With somewhat much better pay. My ex wife still tries to bum rush me for money, my kid only ever talks about video games during our bi-weekly chats, and I have lived in isolation to protect my immunocompromised wife for 1,255 days.
I feel like a living ghost. Albeit one that has trouble sleeping.
