Make the cash flow cutting the priority above all else. You don't know if you will remain unemployed for a week or a year. Do every single tiny thing you can tolerate to reduce your outflow to the minimum. Prepare for the worst.

The worst is unlikely materialize, but better to expect it an be prepared than to ignore it and be sorry.

I'm very glad that you joined this community those years ago, and became an example of what to do RIGHT. Keep it up, and you will weather this problem, and it will eventually become just another bump in your past that you overcame. We're all figuratively holding your hand.
