Thank you for beginning an excellent thread with a gracious post.

I recently went through a divorce...a very ugly, messy one. My ex-wife not only deserted me, or rather kicked me out of the house, leaving me with literally nothing...she did her best to try to destroy me professionally and socially.

For the past eight months, I have been slowly trying to get my life back together. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder (Manic-Depression), and have also experienced major back problems. Getting my life back in order has been an ordeal beyond my wildest imagination.

Several friends have lent (given) me $$$ to help me get back on track. But, even more important, they also helped me with a place to live and transportation. I will NEVER forget what they did for me...NEVER. They did not make me feel like a leper...they just plain helped me out. No questions asked. They saw the need, they filled it.

Their only request is that I help others later the way I've been helped now.

God bless them.
