    Its been awhile...

    And very rocky. July 29th will be a year since I went off my antidepressants...I have cried every day. Side effects can last up to a year and maybe more they say. It's not been total breakdown crying, a lot of times people are sitting right next to me and don't notice that I'm fighting tears and...

    Thanks Gerrit! I don't mind any advice even if you don't know me at all. A lot of times an outside perspective is really good. So I didn't refill my anti depressants before my sleep study and from some reading and other podcast about the effects I decided not to go back on anything except my...

    When I thought it couldn't get worse, I find out after a check up that I also need to go off my medication for narcolepsy a week before I retake my sleep study and just happened that the earliest available is August 24th or have to wait till Oct. That left me with going off the medication cold...

    Exciting news

    Hey guys! I been having a rough time for bit. Still waiting to hear something about the job I applied for, it's been a couple months and I don't think anyone has been interviewed. So far as I know I'm the only one. Staff is in short supply and there's tons of work so I try not to sweat it much...

    In one sentence, why did you drop out of college?

    I couldn't afford a Mac computer or Adobe suite so I could do my homework and started failing my classes. I actually liked most of my classes.

    You are %100 right! I had that idea before but just for my kids and I don't think we actually planned anything special cause we couldn't think of anything that wouldn't cost a ton of money or we didn't have much of an imagination. I have Mark Kay inventory that I give to my sister's and step mom...

    Thank you! This process has been an eye opening experience, that's for sure! Now it drives me up the wall to hear people talk about being broke while they go out to eat all the time or buy stuff they don't need. Lol guess I'll have to ignore it or brag that I'm debt free. That's kinda mean I guess.

    Thanks! It's definitely a surreal moment. And when we announce to our families that we are debt free and they see how it changes our life, its going to be pretty sweet to see how they act. They haven't been all that supportive and there was a big fight last Christmas where some of them tried to...

    Thank you! ? I looked into Google docs but I needed office to learn some specific things that I would need for that new job position I want. I know the other guy in that department and he told me things that would really help me when I take their "test" to see how well and efficient I am in word...

    @Teliah Gienger we have thought about what we want to do when we get debt free a lot. At first I don't know if it will feel like we are debt free. We desperately need new windows and insulation and siding on our house to make it energy efficient, because it is not efficient at all! We keep the...
