The echo from what the other posters said is from me too. I have been quietly reading the posts about your situation and think about what the rest of us have in the future. The Good Book of Life doesn't have nice endings.

I'm going to clip a small email to a friend. He was having some bad days too and this thought always kept my mind focused. It's from David Thoreau.

Here's a special part of Thoreau's Walden Pond.

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms, and, if it proved to be mean, why then to get the whole and genuine meanness of it, and publish its meanness to the world.

I liked this part of the book and I live with this thought too. If life is mean, then I want to see how mean a day can be. I try to see if it's a record for being a "Mean" day. With my daily job, I had a lot of days which almost won the contest for being the meanest day but I'm still looking to find the actual winner. I'm sure it will be coming down the road in my life.

Just remember, we're thinking of you and your situation. I'm sure that the other posters are same to me, I think of you daily.

Keep your positive thoughts as much as possible.
