bad luck and trouble

i'm 45 years old, unemployed, separated, and about to go through a divorce.

i couldn't believe how well things were going in 1999-2000, the .com internet days! I had stock options worth over $4,000,000, just been married for 2 years, had a nice, new home with bright prospects for the future.

now, i'm over $100,000 in debt. i've failed at starting my own business, found out my wife had a sexual affair outside the sacred bonds of marriage, been diagnosed with mild depression, can't find a job, probably am about to lose my car, and the self-pity story goes on and on...

how did i find myself in this predicament? can things get any worse? probably. but then i think about cancer-survivor lance armstrong who came back from death to win the tour de france an unprecedented 7 consecutive times! sure, he's been accused of taking drugs, but has he? i don't think so. after all, in america, we are presumed innocent until proven guilty. such inspiration in lance armstrong's story.

also, i've been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder, slightly obese, and out-of-shape. my doctor wants me to lose about 20 pounds as my goal. so, i guess i gotta cut out the cheese and other fatty foods when i go to harris teeter with my vic card... oh well

will my problems ever cease? probably, not. i hope i'm not being too whiny, but you-know sometimes i get down, y know. it happens. and it is very slightly therapeutic to vent anonymously on the internet.

oh well, dog bless! and happy new year!

keep the faith! strenth and honor! what we do echoes in eternity!
