The Coronavirus Pandemic has been terrible. I've been anxious for months over getting sick. Finally, the Fall college semester rolled around, and during the first week I began to meet with all my friends again (with social distancing, of course) and to go to classes. I was having a good time. I even wrote down a whole schedule for the next week where I would meet with someone almost every day.

I live in Louisiana. My family and I evacuated for Hurricane Laura at the beginning of my second week of school. I thought we were just doing it as a precaution and that we would return home in three days. However, Hurricane Laura destroyed our city. I've heard that it caused 2.5 million dollars worth of damage to my university campus alone. Our house is relatively intact (although it does have some damage), but our city is in shambles. We've been living out of hotels for about three weeks now, I think. Classes have been delayed and moved entirely online. I won't be seeing my friends much again, and I won't be around my peers. This is my last semester of college. I don't even want to go back to our city.

On top of that, I've been around my family so much now, and we're all depressed and anxious. They're getting on my nerves, and we're arguing. Things were just beginning to look up for me, and then they all came crashing down again.

Any advice would be nice.
