Greetings,

The last 5 years have been a roller coaster for me and all on a downward free fall, from personal problems, medical issues, work related issues and such. I ended up in the Hospital on Christmas and was just discharged yesterday. While the medical problems have not been too serious on an individual level, when they are all put together its taken its toll. Some of the results has been the loss of my job, insurance, savings and just about everything else we rely on on a daily basis for basic survival. If not for family I would be adding homeless to that list.

I am generally a pretty private person however in this case ATS and its community have helped me through some of the rough patches along the way.

To those whom I find myself on the same side of arguments - Thank you for making the experience enjoyable and reminding me of the power of humor.

To those whom I find myself on the opposite side of arguments - A sincere thank you for keeping me on my toes and forcing me to constantly research and learn.

As I try to figure my life out I will be away from ATS.

Again thanks to everyone.

I wish you well for the future and hope things pick up for you.

Brightest Blessings to you as you navigate this rough terrain. I cannot say that I know what you're going through, because none of us truly experience anything in precisely the same way, but I have been there...and though it was an ordeal that I do not ever wish to repeat, I survived it and learned some of the most valuable lessons in my life thus far, and I am better for it.

One of the things that helped me the most and that I always tell people to try, was making a concerted effort to think positively. I started small...it's not easy to find the positive when you're sick and homeless and hungry and nothing seems like it will ever be OK again.

But one crisis at a time, I started making myself find at least one positive thing that manifested from it. Pretty soon, I was finding the tiniest things to be incredibly heartening...and the more I found, the more seemed to manifest. You've got a roof, you're out of the slammer (what I call hospital stays), and you're sorting it out. You're already on the road to success.

Good luck to you, and please feel free to U2U me any time if you need someone to talk to. I mean that. And if you can, pop in from time to time and let us know how you're doing. You've got this.

You know we have the best advice here in these situations no mater our differences, please utilize us as much as possible ...

When I say " our differences" I mean yours and some members at ATS not mine..we usually agree.

You got this..if your body can't handle it anymore , it only means you have grown out of the flesh and are resenting the flesh..

Take care Xcathdra, I always enjoy reading your posts even if I don't agree with them because you clearly know where you are coming from and the points you wish to articulate.

Wishing you well and don't stay away too long!
You'll be missed on here and I mean that sincerely.

here's to looking up and climbing up.

Well wishes friend. I also appreciate what this whacky and sometimes cantankerous community provides me. Its a place to go even if its virtual.

Take it easy Xcathedra. I went through my own hell being shot in the neck and back of my head with a 12 ga 00 mag buckshot on Christmas morning about 3AM in 2001. Spent two Christmases and two New Years in the trauma center. It devastated me the same way it has you. It took me about 3 years to climb out of that hole. Keep a positive attitude and holler if there is anything we can do, even if it is just shoot the breeze. (pun intended).

Look forward to your triumphant return!



Will keep you in my prayers brother!

Deeply troubled to hear of your ailing health and general dilapidation Xcathdra.

I hope that you find whatever peace and physical stability there is to be had, during your down time. Do not rush yourself. Healing is a thing best done in the absence of pressures, real or perceived, and one of the most crucial elements of it is to recognise that nothing comes before the need to heal. Not money, not external stressors. If you can, banish all thought of anything save your physical health, until you have it to rely upon. On that foundation, many things can be built, that may currently seem either unlikely or insurmountable.

Godspeed to you.

I hope you know that I wish the best for you and your family.

I was diagnosed earlier this year with stage 4 cancer this year (tumors in kidney's and Pancreas) BUT I was not stage 4 according to the specialist who were able to remove the tumors. Am I tumor free? YES.

What worked for me was something very simple....I told God that I was putting all my problems, fears, and anxieties in his hands to determine my outcome.

On the op table I almost died (diabetic ..... almost bled out...) laid on the table for 6 hours while numerous professionals took turns cutting on me and then I wake up.....pain free.... very fast recovery .... all pain free...even when they removed the forty staples in my chest and stomach.

BUT YOU are suffering much worse than I and I hope you have not given up on God. He has not given up on you and is waiting for you to make a move towards him for this is the only way he will respond.

I wish you and your family health, much success in 2017, happiness and inner peace. God bless you.

I'm real sorry to hear this, X. I'm happy to hear you are out of the hospital, and that you have family to help see you through. My heart and prayers are with you too. You've been so patient and helpful to me in understanding certain things and sharing your knowledge and experience and I appreciate that so much.

Take good care of yourself -- and BE GOOD to yourself! -- and keep on trucking on. We're here for you whenever you need to vent or rant or rage or just ponder or wonder. Or send me a PM and let loose.

Brightest blessings for you and yours

Ummm...I've been there myself my friend...I've taken leave of this place a few times...Usually after six months or so I wander back...It's kind of like a comfortable old sofa here sometimes...and I appreciate the use of it and crashing here...

I wanted to let you know that I really didn't like you at first...but then one day while we were conversing about some topic or non such...you made the comment that sometimes you took the position you did...just to provide balance to the subject...(paraphrased)...After that day I had and have a great deal of respect for you and your obvious intelligence...

Thank you...
Thank you for elevating my perception...for being there with the right turn of phrase...the right message...the right teaching that I needed in that moment...

I've found that some of the people here I initially disliked the most...have become in my mind at least...good friends...good company...and great souls just trying to reach out with their words...

You've reached out my friend...taught a recalcitrant old dog some new tricks...I just wanted to let you know that you have friends here...and that sometimes handshakes and appreciation come in the form of simple converse with persons you might never meet in the real...

...Here's to respect...and to wishes of well being...May your burdens slough away...May you experience the joy in each moment that I seek and mostly find...all be cause I choose to live on that brighter side...

Be well...You Sir...are in good company...in all of your future travels...remember this place where foe becomes friend...where communal realization births a growing up...especially for one so recalcitrant as self...

Thank you...


YouSir
