    Then continue to talk to all of us here.

    Checking out would dishonor the lioness you still mourn for.
    Called and spoke with someone for a few hours that night. It took me off the edge, but I'm not out of the woods yet. I'm still not eating more than a few hundred calories a day or sleeping for a couple hours at a time. Frequently waking up drenched in sweat, too. I'm also toggling from grief to sadness to despair to anger in quick intervals of time. My focus is non-existent. [excised] If I drive, it's erratic and risky - I typically drive at or below speed limits, and brake gingerly.

    I'm living in Orange County, as I have since summer. A friend in customs has offered a place for me in San Diego to get things sorted out, and I may take him up on that. Getting laid off and left cold reopened the wounds and scars left from the life I was to live with my wife. Trying to start out, again, on a career path that could take half a decade or more - this would put me in my 40s - is difficult enough, but now I'm faced with doing it without the comfort, security, and love of my wife. While also trying to simply make ends meet for myself in the meantime.

    Your post had me worried you might hurt yourself. I am glad you are still kicking.

    I'm glad you logged back in to talk with us.

    Maybe a CA member could reach out to you.

    In any case, keep fighting...the night is darkest just before the dawn.

    I think I would try to view the change in work and scenery as a positive if it were me to try and focus on something else for awhile . It may be good for you . Let us know if you need to talk .

    I don’t know you from Adam, which may be appealing when I say, PM me if you need someone to talk to who is thousands of miles removed.

    The human experience oscillates from tragedy to triumph on a timeline of its own making. I pray for you.

    What ghengis86 said...

    I was 30 when I met My Wife. and I met her as a fugitive. Nationwide warrants for arrest,, Assumed Armed and Dangerous,,

    I have owned two homes since then..

    I am Contemplating my 40 year Anniversary as an Outlaw.

    Been married 57years concurrently.. 32+25

    It can turn around,,or take some other direction ,,,

    I am 62 and contemplating what to do next myself.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

Not in the sense that I could lay out a road map, more in a general sense; I can sense when people will be more than okay, that they will thrive. I say it sucks, because this sense doesn't trigger when I look at myself. I say it is a talent because it has not yet, to date, been wrong. You might say, "How can you say this about me? You've never met me," this is true, but I've read you for nine years--a not insignificant amount of text. Writing is mind distilled, yes, in symbols transmittable? Milton said that words offer the purest access to another person's mind.

    So, take it from an internet lunatic: while things don't always pass for everyone, and it isn't always going to be okay, these tribulations will pass for you and your life has strange and interesting things still in store.

    P.S. That bit about indulging... delete that. I'd prefer if anyone that quoted Abcess did the same.

    Glad that you checked in. This isn't easy to do at the moment, but focus on right this moment. Not the past, not the future. But just this very moment. Eat and sleep are the two most important things you need to do right now. If you have not been eating but a few hundred calories a day and not sleeping, your thinking is not going to be clear, and it can just mess you all up. You have to eat and sleep. Your brain needs it. Take it a little bit at a time and please focus on those two things. It's really, really important. Ok? You're going to be all right. You've got options, San Diego is one. It may be something that turns everything around. Or maybe it will lead you to the true new start that you need. But now, please take care of you. Get sleep and nourishment. Thinking about you and hoping you find peace. Please pm me (anytime even months from now, whatever) if you ever need to talk about your grief. I'm almost an expert at this point and have a lot of compassion for those going through it. Take care.

    Still in despair, disharmony, and desperation. I'll be at the LP convention tomorrow in LA sometime around noon, if anyone will be there. I'll be in a black polo, gray Dockers, and black Adidas Icon 4s. I'm tall and lean.

    Hey man, very sorry for all the loss.

    You must continue to live the best life you possibly can in the memory of your lioness. Life is full of obstacles, some harder than others, keep moving forward step by step, it will better.

    Which part of OC are you staying at? Have you found a new stable job yet? Maybe reach out to one of those medical debt non-profits to see if they can help you out or possibly declare bankruptcy so you can start fresh and save up.

    We are all here for you. Join the chat that swordsmyth posted up.

    What are your skills and experiences? Its not out of the ordinary that someone here on RPF might have leads on job opportunities. The economy is in great shape right now, shouldn't be hard to find a decent job that will get you on track.
