You have such a great looking site, Scott, with a ton of information. Congratulations on all you've achieved. Don't you dare throw in the towel!
Now it's time to organise all that great information in a new way.
Here's what I would do first, just to get you back in the saddle...
Start with combining and deleting pages. Put a 301 redirect on deleted pages and keep a note of them so that you can delete them in google search console too.
Be sure to keep an excel sheet. See my tip here: https://forums.sitesell.com/viewtopic.php?f=64&t=223488
Whilst you're doing that, be very critical and ask yourself if you were a visitor, would you be happy to give that page/article 5 stars for completeness in answering the query.
You'll end up with a very fresh website (with perhaps only 25% of pages left) which will be much easier to oversee, manage, upgrade and change if and when required. Most importantly, you'll be able to monetise your newly upgraded site much more effectively.
Upgrade all your T2s (don't have too many) to 5 Star full-content articles with a maximum of 2 Youtube video on a page. If you want it, I have a code which helps to load your vids faster. Include the new breadcrumb codes (easy to manage with reusable blocks).
Ask for a site review.
See this as an opportunity. Just go for it and come back to this thread often to share what you've achieved. We don't want to lose you and we'll continue to support you.
