man hazelnut, that is one tough story. stories like yours are why i
didn't whine to much about my situation. some body somewhere always
has it worse, no matter how bad you have it. do you realise the odds you beat? how could anyone not wish you all the best? i know i do.
sounds like there is no goal you can't reach. carry on in a big way.

No, I am not saying to just go get a job, and I have been on the bad end of watching my money dwindle, giving up my truck, and home, and having to make new arrangements.
I am saying that during hard times we should have friends or families that are willing to help out, or let us stay awhile, or recommend us for a job!
If we don't have those social connections, it is probably because we alienated them at some point in the past, and we are all alone, because of our own selfishness, or crass-ness, or as a result of improper behaviour! (i.e. drugs, theft, violence, etc.) In that case, it is each individuals own fault for finding themselves in that position!
