    So I have been thinking about this for a bit more.

    I think that what I am going through is a grappling match with reality. Reality has me pinned.
    But being pinned almost feels like, or rather it actually does feel like, a strange form of relief.

    Pinned sounds like you're stuck. What parts are stuck and why do you think you are stuck.

    Or did you mean pinned in a different sense?

    Oh, I am stuck. But I am starting to feel like stuck is the most realistic position. And it is restful compared to the constant struggle of grappling with reality.

    I think UL is pretty much on the mark. He's not depressed, he is facing facts. Why do we feel that we have to cheer someone up all the time?

    In your searches for courses, UL, how about looking at risk management? Sounds as though employment opportunities are fairly good.
