Gang, it looks like my soon-to-be-ex-wife has started the process. After 6 months of 18hr days searching online for work, ANY work…it seems my efforts have failed. I have had decent days and bad days and some real doozies…I’ve also gained some great advice and support here among my valuable friends. You all have been very kind to me and appreciate all of you more than you can know. It’s so nice to be embraced by such neat, intelligent, compassionate, and funny people. Although the internet, utilities, etc., stays on for now, I suspect it will fall away in the next week or so. The process has begun. I have exhausted every avenue of survival I knew how to pursue. In every aspect of my life I have excelled at most every endeavor that I’ve undertaken. However, this is and has been my darkest hour and most difficult challenge. It appears I have finally….well…failed. Without a home and without work, I imagine it won’t be very long before I am lost to the world. I am terrified and lost. Keeping a brave face is a very difficult thing.
I wanted to come here as my last stop. My peers. After everything I’ve experienced I need to say this:
Please talk to your partners. Keep the lines of communication open always.
Prepare. Prepare for the impossible. It will save you life.
Live in the sweet moments of life. Know that they are unique and precious. Never take anything for granted. Or anyone.
I’m scared everyone….
