Had to concentrate on all the important stuff and just survive. And after many bumps, losing my home a couple times and make some other life changes, I'm still trying to make it to the end of the rollercoaster ride, harder than ever.
Among other things, I had a talk with a friend about this specific forum and how good of a place it always was. And I really thought it would be gone in the middle of all the social media frenzy, but here it is in all its glory. So yeah, I'll try to participate again and enjoy all the good stuff you guys share. I do miss that.
I was wondering where you went as you were pretty active right before you left. I've gotten my Wilcoxon pretty well down since then.
Things are pretty strange right now and the divide is great between those who can still work or get taken care of and those who don't.
I can't offer much advice. I myself have just focused on what I can do something about which is getting outdoors and doing a bit of gardening both for fun to save money. It's always been a plan to move more and more in that direction, but it's different when there's real pressure on you. I certainly know what it's like to keep getting hammered down every time you're on your way up again. Not much to do but keep going and maybe be more selective in the people I choose to trust.
Forums and knowledge one can get from youtube and other resources is a great help. I probably can't even begin to imagine how people would cope without and communicate to solve things if not for modern technology. You can find you tribe(s) and at least find something to do.
