I am still confused with prepositions.

I think I can't bear the situation within the next 30 days

Is that sentence correct?

Or there are other prepositions that might suit the sentence, replacing 'within'?

    We speak of some event happening within the next 30 days, meaning 'at some time during that period', but we don't use within for an ongoing 'situation'. Commented Dec 5, 2019 at 16:56
