Been pretty hit or miss for me these last few months.
Mostly miss, but without the bad, the good just don't seem as great.
Now I am back on the upswing, feeling pretty well, got my mind in a good place and intend to keep it there.
Long story short, I had to move halfway across the country on 3 days notice, with little money and no help at all.
When I was at my lowest point, and I mean really really low, like hadn't eaten in 3 days, half a tank of gas and $25 to my name.
No job, no place to stay, looking at at least 3 weeks minimum before I could cash out a 401k for a few hundred bucks to get by on until I find some
It wasn't my family or friends that gave me a hand up, it was an ATSer that kept me off the streets.
The oddest part, we have had some cross words several times.
I was even instructed to feel no gratitude or pull any punches with them in the future.
I have been told to "never speak of this again!! ".
But having been off ats for the better part of 3 months now( because as soon as im just getting my crap together some a hole breaks into my car and
steals my phone, causing me to miss the call for a great job) I have thought of this nonstop.
Well I got a new phone, got a promotion at work effectively getting a 1/3 pay raise( see kids, hard work pays off) and am on the uptick sharply.
In short, thank you ATSer that shall remain nameless, you really did save this man from the tinder mercies of the cold hard streets.
I have lived your advice, I have am and will the rest of my days pay it forward because of you.
I have honestly never had anyone do for me what was done for me by an anonymous internet handle.
This experience has changed me for the better forever.
Some of you love me, others respect me, I dare say some despise me in one thread and like me in others.
I have a very "unconventional " take on many topics, and what has been described as an "abrasive " personality at times.
Love me, hate me...... I'm back ATS, and thrilled to know I am able to participate in the nets best forum again!!!!!!!!!
