Huge rain/windstorm here last night. Our basement flooded...$22k+CAD in damage to the floors/walls, etc, let alone our stuff. All the floors have to be ripped up and replaced as well as possibly a lot of the walls from water soaking into the gyprock. My brother’s several thousand dollar gaming desktop PC may be screwed, though mine might be OK...no idea...insurance will cover up to $22k, but hell knows how much more is going to be needed. My brother and I both live at home right now until we get permanent full time jobs somewhere...mom is retired, but all the extra money we’ll likely have to now spend on top of that was supposed to be for her retirement....

Yes, we’re not dead and we can still live here and it’ll all get repaired so those are obviously two huge pluses, but at this moment I am feeling incredibly depressed, stressed, exhausted (we’ve been cleaning and whatnot since 7am this morning straight) and as unmanly as it may sound, on the verge of tears...it’s just a lot to take in. 6-8 weeks the restoration company estimates, 2 MONTHS before life can have some semblance of normalcy again and I somehow have to keep going to work and all that jazz and then come home to this and keep working at helping clean and sort it all...

I dunno...just needed to rant guys/gals. You probably won’t see me on here that much for awhile...unless you do if I come on as a means of escape when and if I have the time...

I just don’t know and feel so lost and upset. Thanks for listening.
