You are one of my favorites here on ATS True Brit and it saddens me to know that you are in such a crap storm right now. I myself have had several bad
years of late, I could elaborate but won't as I haven't seen much sympathy here for the most part. ATS hasn't been what it used to be for me and I
haven't thought of it as being a place to find support. I have all but abandoned it for other venues lately. I think that it is great that you have
found as much sympathy as you have here and it shows that ATS still has many good people left (as surprising as that is to me).
I will say this much about my situation, I could very well have died in a recent accident and I'm facing another very hard winter, having come to the
conclusion that last winter was the worst I've had to endure my entire life. I was "laid off" with no unemployment just before my accident and due to
the injuries I've sustained, it will be some time before I can pursue employment again. I've gotten little support from family beyond a couple of get
well cards. I have some good friends and neighbors that have helped although I'm the type who isn't in the habit of asking for it. The government may
end up helping, but as of right now, I'm basically on my own and physically unable to provide for months to come.
I'm not at risk of losing everything though, I will heal, I have some resources yet (as few as those are), but these too are desperate times for me.
Personally, I feel pretty good about surviving and should be completely healed after the doctor removes the hardware from my body in about a year. But
at this very moment, I can sympathize with you because if I don't generate some revenue quickly, they'll be nothing left to pay the bills. We are not
quite in the same boat but we both sail upon the same rough seas.
Such a close bush with death and severe injuries have changed my perspective for the better and I have hope the same could be said for your situation.
It can be hard to see what good may come of all this, but have faith that it will, I do. Having faith is better than having nothing but despair,
regardless what those who would disregard faith would have to say about that.
I wish for you the best and hope you can rise up from your misfortune to put things back on track once again.
From your friend across the pond, MSB
