    20 years post

    well tomorrow marks 20 years post. pretty hard to believe how fast life has gone by. getting hard to cope with life sometimes. my wife left me after 13 years for an AB guy. man, i know the bible says the Lord won't give you more than you can handle; this is hard to believe sometimes.

    i need to remember the blesings in my life, and where i have come from. because of sci i became a Christian and so have a few of my friends and family. i have a 6 year old son. countless other good things in my life are all around me.

    however i am reminded daily of the physical struggles, and every 30th of june i'm reminded of an accident that changed my life and it's direction forever.

    couple of beers and good company with family should pass the day nicely.

    i don't post here often, but i needed to get some things off my mind with others who know what i'm going through

    God bless and thanks for listening

    Mike

        Hi Mike,
        I hear you. My anniversary is tomorrow, too--5 years for me.

        I try not to think about it, just coast through the day, like June 30th doesn't exist.

            Happy Anniversary Mike. Somehow with several scars and many broken bones to show for it, I've managed 33 [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

                  Hell no, I'm still cribbed up at the Residence Inn. It's a pain in the butt but the big roll-in shower sure is nice, along with breakfast every morning! Everyone jere is super nice and hanging out by the pool with the cute Sri Lakan babes is spoilin' me [img]/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

                  The insurance company insists on dragging their feet. I was pissed yesterday when I talked to them and said, "well when you guys decide what the hell you're gonna do, call me, I'll be by the pool at the $140 a night hotel!"

                  Sorry Mike, didn't mean to go off tangent on your serious thread.

                        July 12th will be 24 years for me. I'll acknowledge the day by thinking about how my life was changed in an instant, reflect on the good things in my life and have a drink or two. Some people use the word "Celebrate" to describe what they do on their anniversary day. To me that conjures images of party hats and a joyous occaison.

                            I guess saying 'congratulations' might be inappropriate, eh?

                            jk, 19 yrs post last month here.

                            hang in there, dude.
