Sorry for not contributing much lately...

Post by DroothR on Thu Apr 16, 2009 2:59 pm

But I have a pretty decent excuse, I swear.

You'd be surprised at how little spare time you have when your primary computer dies, you get engaged, find out your fiance is pregnant, get your first paid gig as a (wedding) photographer, and spend every spare day inspecting rental properties for a new place to live.

Shocked

I've not stopped being here, just haven't had time to post all that often. Embarassed

Once I find a residence for my new family (my fiance has a 5 y/o son, who I'm dreading getting close to my thousands of figures, which he has yet to see silent), I'll start contributing again on a more regular basis.

Smile

RoB.

Congrats Rob......kids are impossible to resist. I remember the dread I felt thinking of my daughter getting her hands on my toy displays......now though, I get a real kick out of seeing her eyes light up and cheeky smile as she reaches out with her tiny hands to pick something up Smile

Thanks everyone!

Things have been so crazy...

I'm moving this weekend, and that's going to be painful. My bloody ISP is doing it's best to be uncontactable, so I can't switch my broadband over to the new place, which means I could be offline for a week or two, GAH! Shake Fist

Hopefully I'll be back soon! In the meantime, take care everyone!

So, a month and a half later...

  • I've been battling a viral infection for the last 6 weeks, and as a result I may have liver damage (going for an ultrasound soon to find out more). pale
  • I now need to use a Nebulizer daily to breathe. No (Hopefully only temporarily)
  • I've run out of sick time AND annual leave at work, so I may end up unemployed. silent
  • My girl just left me (for reasons I don't even understand). Crying or Very sad
  • Now I'm alone in a house I can't afford to live in, and have over 10 months left on the lease. Shocked
Lessons to be learned?
  • Life sucks. ALWAYS. Any evidence to the contrary is a lie.
  • Don't trust anyone. EVER.
  • I exist to suffer.

Dude I hope your health improves. (That absolutly sux)

From my experiance there are different degres of Suckyness in life, you are just in a bad sucky one. There is truely never a rock bottom. The things that break us emotionally make us stronger and occasionally wiser.

I hope things get a bit brighter bro.

My gosh Rob, that all sounds awful. I wish we could all lend you a hand somehow.
I hope your health improves quickly.

With regards to this house, was your girl not on the lease too?

My thoughts and hopes are with you.

Man, that's just terrible! I guess the not knowing why is the worst, but believe you me... there are good people out there. They are just getting harder to find every day.

Thanks for your support guys.

Yes, but she has no income currently, and when she does sort things out with CentreLink, I doubt I'll be able to get much from her anyways.

No, if we aren't able to patch things up eventually, then I'm officially done.

Girls will be for friendship and perhaps casual bedmates only (should I get so lucky). Nothing further.

The Jekyll I fell in love with was perfect, but I never saw the Hyde coming. So if this is the absolute end for us, then I'll never trust anyone else, or more importantly myself, ever again.

Mate, i really hope things pick up for you. And if it's not too personal, she was pregant wasn't she? Hopefully she is decent enough to be amicable when it comes to child support and visitations......

Jesus Rob, that is a truly ghastly chain of events. I know we don't "know" each other, but if you ever need to vent, PM me anytime!

Things can only get better, Buddy.

Ah, the joy of miscommunication + multiple illnesses...

It seems I jumped the gun a bit, my girl and I are seperated, not split.

Embarassed

Possible we might part in the end, but things are still not 100% closed, so that's something.
