I'm not here to piss and moan but through a series of events from 2007 to the preasant , I've been on a sinking ship ....! . Many bad things should have happened and would have happened if-n I weren't so dang stubborn !

In all reality , it's possible my wife should bail and leave me , financially I'm ruined and by next spring , it's possible I could be living under a pine grove ! LOL ....! Knowing this ship can sink at any minute , I learned to swim like a MoFo .....it is what it is , one hell of an adventure either way ....!

I have no doubt you will rise above whatever is thrown at you ! Hmmm....you by any chance Polish...? Thick skin and extra thick skull helps.....
Keep the faith bro , sometimes , that's all that's left ...

My wife spent an hour in the ER at a N. GA hospital two weeks ago, and the raw bill is $4500,k for which they examined her advised her and released her. No meds, no shots, no bandages. Only advise for her blood pressure. I am waiting to see what deal they cut with Medicare and insurance, and what I have to pay.

What we all need to do is go back and negotiate. If they seem to big, they probably are.

Thanks guys. I say b!tch about what gripes you, as holding back tends to just make it worse. that and it gives you something to laugh about from time to time, and we all need that.

I remember when i was down just 2 toes on the left, back in 2006, while in buying a few Macanudo Vintage 97s at a local smoke shop, when one of the girls my wife worked with, and i had also worked with, stubbed her toe in the door frame coming into the humidor. Needless to say, she was quite proficient in profanity, and had a good string going, until she looked up, and saw me there. At that point, she stopped, started to turn red, and said she was sory about it.

That's when I couldn't keep the laughter from coming out.

See, I've always seen it as God doesn't give us a cross to bear that is more than we can handle. This happened to me simply because I could handle it, no more, no less. I also played my part by not getting into a specialist sooner than I did. However, I know a lot of folks who would just stay at home, mad as hell to all the heavens that it happened to them. Feeling that God had abandoned them in their time of need.

I'm just one of those folks that ain't wired that way is all. I get that we all have our own mountains to climb, and I accept it as the test and challenge it is. I went through the stages of grief back when all this started, and figured out quick that it is an enhancer. If you were a strong willed, decent person before, you find a deeper well of tenacity and of kindness, that will let you keep going forward, even when life kicks you 12 steps back for every one you ever made forward. If you were a self centered d!ck before, who blames others for even a hangnail, same rule of multiplication applies.

I keep going because I have family, at home and here, that gives me a reason to, just like you who have followed this thread have. If i start to get down about how things are going, I remember my grandfather, who after 22 years in the NYSP, had to take an early retirement from his next job in the 1980s, when he ballance started to go, and he would fall down at work from time to time. Not good in na machine shop. He went on for another 26 years, getting worse and worse, going from walking left, right, and forward, with some issues backing up, to being in a computer chair at home, and a wheelchair (Power one bought by me as a thank you for keeping my family in the upper apartment for 4 years while I was waiting on my SSDI to be approved) once my SSDI claim was accepted and the money came in.

Through what I can only imagine was a quarter century of hell, going from being a no-nonsense man who still had a big heart, but could hold his own with the best of them, to being frail enough that I sometimes had to carry him to his car, he never gave up. On himself or me. i push on, in part, as a means of carrying on his legacy, and to honor those men I met while dad was in the Corps, who all left part of them self forever in the Hells that were Korea and Vietnam.

that is what I grew up around, and their influence stays to this day. that's why I will, and do, keep going.

and yes, i am very glad it didn't cost me an arm and a leg.

although it still could cost me other body parts.
