Whoa Nomad, congrats! You overachiever, you. :badbone:

As for me, Gobs and I went to a Mexican buffet today, which pretty much set the tone for the rest of the day: AWESOME!

It's story time, kiddies. Once upon a time, my eleventh grade teacher had assigned The Great Gatsby for us to read. In haughtiness, she boldly claimed that "Jay Gatsby is the most influential character ever created."

My eyes narrowed. I rose my hand, and in a calm, cool voice, said: "Ma'am. Clearly you don't know who the hell Kamina is."

And... CONGRATS NOMAD!

Heartbeats.  Today it finally hit me, after weeks of contemplation, mental preparation I didn't see this one coming.  The idea alone is scary and rewarding yet, it seems not long ago I would imagine one day I would become a father.  Above all achievements, titles or reflections a very natural thing as this, is by far the my biggest accomplishment.  I do hope, I am man enough to face the challenges ahead... And the spamming of children's programing and music...

Sorry, the feeling got the best of me  :guts:.

Twins! Awesome dude! Congratulations.

So... Twins huh...? $___$

Ha ha!  That my friend is where the million dollar question lies.  I am fortunate enough to say that although we have moments of financial struggles, we always pull through.  My concern lies on my education vs parenthood.  But i'll do whatever it is that I have to do to give these kids a good life.  Time will tell!  I'm telling ya... I had never imagined they'd be two.  I didn't faint because the wall held be up lol.

We're expecting fraternal twins.  Which means they each have their own sack, so the chances of them being identical is if not low, none. It's too soon to tell the sex yet (wife is at the end of the 1st trimester), but we're hoping for the boy and girl pair.  6 years, nice... I have zero experience with babies that alone... Twins.  So any suggestions I will gladly take!  I have heard from other twin parents that once the first years are over, tends to get easier than raising a kid alone... But I wouldn't know lol.

Yeah i didn't have much experience and my girls with my first.  My suggestion is buy plenty of red bulls cuz you'll need them. LOL.  If you get the pair that be nice.  Its true first couple of years its tuff especially with diapers and milks  :ganishka:  ouch on the wallet.  But once they become more independent it gets easier.  Also if their boys good luck with that.  I have a 18 month old boy and he's giving me more trouble than my girls did combined.  Either way having children is a blessing, and again congrats.

I kinda was going to post something similar to what you had stated but I decided not to at the time. I know things get crappy like that sometimes and having no job makes it even worse mentally because you have more free time to let all the bad thoughts enter. In my experience, over the past... maybe 6 months or so (not sure) I've gotten very bored of everything I do, lost all my real life friends (wasn't many), dated some girls and got completely ignored or got into the "friend zone",  and ultimately been by myself - with no one to talk too. No one to talk too or hang out with for months... is a really horrible feeling. It's also very painful to hate my job and can't wait to get home everyday.. then when I get home I'm so bored and not motivated.. I'd rather just be at work. The weekends are the worse, I try playing games, surfing the web, reading..etc.. but the whole time I'm so numb and bored of it.. I just keep doing it cause I can't think of anything else to do. Then finally the weekend is over and I've done nothing but waste time and didn't enjoy any minute of it and now I have to go to work and relive the pain again - rinse and repeat. Blah.. I'm even tearing up writing this.. sigh.. can't be helped I guess. Though, my escape to this site and community is no doubt treasured and enjoyable - it's just a different me outside the internet. (and yeah.. I know.. people all over the world are in MUCH worse situations..I know.. blah..blah).

... But like you mentioned working out helps out a great deal and also mentally. Taking vitamins seems to help me out at least. Someone mentioned taking vitamin b complex as a real good (over the counter) substitute for antidepressants that you normally have to get a prescription for. Maybe give that a try? Or at least research it. It seems to be helping me out a lot here recently and I'm feeling much better (and plan on fixing, friends, job, etc). But try to get a job as fast as you can and even fake being motivated for the interviews if you have too. That's a very important thing to do that you must do very quickly and it'll help you a lot - self-worth, money, etc. I hope things get better for you.

Ive been doin the 1000mg time released b vitamins ontop of my multis for like a month now actually. They def. help. Thanks for the kind words and advice.

Since that post things have only got more painful and harder as reality is setting in. Everyone seems to give the same advice though.
"Live one day at a time"
and
"Time will heal everything"

So...thats what i am trying to do. I just feel lost in general though.

Going through a pretty nutty storm right now.  Lots of hail, wind and lightning.  The tornado siren just went off which means our family jumps in the cellar next door.  I always take precautionary measures, putting my AOW statues on my bed just in case it shakes the house around.  Apparently the circulation that was near us dissolved, so that's good.  Fun times in tornado alley!

Damn, how bad is it? Will it heal on its own or does it require surgery?

Oh God, I'm so sorry to hear that, man. I hope there was no severe injury to your eardrum, and it heals by itself. Or at least can be treated by an otolaryngologist.

Holy crap, that's terrible! I've never known anyone that's experienced this, so I'm not sure what to recommend, but I hope you're taking it easy.

Thanks guys. What really freaks me out is that I have 0 clue how this happened. I saw my doctor today who is sending me to an Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist. She said it will eventually heal on its own. It hurt REALLY bad a week ago. I assumed I had an ear infection and sucked it up. Today I got up and was sound very muffled, which sent me into a state of panic. I'm on antibiotics. :/ It feels like when you're on a plane and you have do that thing with your mouth to unpop your ears. :judo:

It's confirmed that it's been blown out, and it's not just a large build-up of liquid? Man... this sucks, dude.

Glad to hear that it's gonna heal. Still, that really sucks, there's nothing more annoying than the feeling that you need to pop your ears, but can't. :sad:

This is how it went. She looked in my good ear. "Ok, looks fine." Looked in the other and said, "Oh boy."
I did this:  :daiba: "Give it to me straight doc. Am I going to have to learn sign language?"
She followed by saying it was very inflamed and made me tilt my head all sorts of ways and concluded with, "Well, you blow out your ear drum. But don't worry it will heal on its own over the course of a few weeks. Def. go see a specialist." So, as long as I don't go deaf I'll be thrilled.

I hope you do get good results from the specialist. Sucks to be in bad shape in any way or form, but yours is worse than mine, since a cold can go away soon. Get well Proj

Sorry to hear about your ear drum, Proj. Mine ruptured several years ago due to an ear infection, and from what you said it sounds like the same thing might have happened to you. I didn't lose hearing in my ear and I don't remember seeing a specialist (I had to go to the ER in the middle of the night, though, so I had a doctor checking me out there) but if that's what your doc is recommending, then that's what you should do. Good luck man! I'll be sending good thoughts your way!
