I’m at the point that I don’t know what to do. I just want to pass my classes, get my certificates and move forward. This crisis has really turned a speed bump into a roadblock.

I need to stay up all night to do schoolwork and even with the whole class online it was very difficult. I only had my phone for online classes up until just recently, when the school provided a laptop. I have no internet at home and libraries are closed. I’m so frustrated and stressed about what I can do. COVID-19 has made it difficult with school and even at home. I’m not sure how much more the school can help with, even as a Veteran.

I just started working again after being home since the end of March – the start of my quarantine. It is May 1st today. All I want is relief from my student debt. Does the light ever shine?
