Stock market rally was mostly in US due to the unlimited QE, which is mostly flowing into wall street instead of main street, causing asset inflation. While other market have recovered slightly from the low, it is still about 20%-30% off the peak. Even in US, the spread is unequal, while S&P 500 almost recovered to its peak in feb, it is mostly contributed by the big cap and the tech stocks. If you look at the small cap ETF, it is still struggling. The lower the you go in the corporate food chain, the more they will struggle right now.

How do you cope with that, if you don't mind me asking?
Sorry to hear about your conditions. Can I ask what were the circumstances that led up to your current conditions, like were they hereditary or were they a result of certain lifestyle choices? If it was the latter, you will need to make certain drastic changes to your lifestyle.

Okay since you said that you feel physically tired often, I would suggest you to completely get rid of any activities that serves no purpose to you whatsoever, and focus your energy on the essential ones. For example, coming onto this forums. Other than coming here to seek advice/get your queries resolved, a lot of the threads on this forum is really quite toxic and just a form of entertainment to pass the time. So just focus your time and efforts on things that are important, ie. your job, medical treatment, self-recovery and self-improvement. Don't waste your time on activities that consume your energy but not helping you to get better. The road to recovery is long but like I mentioned in my previous post, no problem is ever resolved overnight but slowly step by step you will get there. The important thing is to keep moving forward, making little progress everyday.

For my conditions, just gonna share my coping methods for tuberculosis and depression. TB happened at a time right before my A levels which was really ****. But my method to cope was similar to what I mentioned in the para above. I still have 24 hours everyday and I just focused my time and energy on things that mattered, like my A levels, giving up on activities that were wasting my time. I also wanted to show everyone that I was still capable of doing well even with this TB so that was a motivating factor for me.

Depression defo took a while to get over it and even today I still have small bouts of it once in a while. Yeah it wasn't easy so I know what you're going through. What I realised was that the only person that can really help you is yourself. Specialists can understand your situation and give counsel/advice, but only you know yourself best and you must actively take charge of your mind. Something I did was to just talk to my mom whenever I felt down, somehow talking it out just seems to help me declutter and empty whatever was in my mind. Another thing I did was to note down small achievements that I did and use that as motivation whenever I felt depressing thoughts recurring. I was very conscious about how I reacted to certain issues and made sure I didn't let those negative thoughts permeate too much.

Since now is CB, use this time to focus on yourself, map out what you wanna achieve. Even if it is a simple thing like to reduce the time you send out an email from 30mins to 20mins, set it as a goal and attain it. Then move on to increasingly larger goals for yourself. Don't ever underestimate the small steps you take everyday, cause at the end of the day, you are those small steps closer to recovery.

Anyway hope this helps. Jiayou man take one thing at a time, you can do it.

I heard of it through a university friend who recommended it to me and signed up with them, never thought i could get an internship during such times. Would recommend for y'all to check it out cos it helped me clinch an internship position.
