    I know exactly how you feel. I've been there for 7 years. It's a dark and lonely time, uncertain and with fear. Glad you made it through. You can do anything!

    thats awsome man, i am glad to know you are keeping your head above the water
    you ever need a place to stay in OK just let me know, i have a room open.

    I know, i know, OK sucks, but a bed is more comfortable then the back of a truck.:)

    Well I won't get into the details, several people around here know my story, and they have really been there for me..thats why I love this place!...but the short version is I had some serious medical problems, and couldn't work, no work means no money for food, rent, etc..and disability took almost a year before I actually got some money..

    Went to Washington, saw a specialist, got better..and never went back to cali..just kinda landed here in Oregon and thats where I am today.

    Oh and by the way..I recently had a one year check up, and Dr. says all is good, and could hardly tell anything was ever wrong!..;)

    Exactly! That's definately good news. Keep up the striving.

    I'm thinking the light at the end of the tunnel is not the train this time!
