I am self employed soft tissue therapist and I haven't had a good month since April. I picked up a part time gig at a grocery store last week to supplement, but things are still going to be very tight unless things turn around a bit. (If any of you are in the Minneapolis area or know someone in the Minneapolis area that needs a good therapist for joint, muscle, or back/neck pain, pm me. Sorry for the shameless plug.) At any rate, I know that there are quite a few around here that are in similar or worse shape than I am in. Please pray for us all.
I know what it feels like to be underemployed; we're in that situation in our family right now too.
And by the way I WISH that you lived near me...I could REALLY use a joint/muscle therapist, badly! Everything hurts, all the time, from overuse injuries from frequent workouts for the last 10 years...(so much for exercise being a GOOD thing!)
