That's about the funniest description of a FTF gun sales I've ever read. Pretty accurate too, including the height, I am 5'4". Thanks bwphoto, I needed a good laugh today and you sure served one up





And thank you for the kind offer and well-wishes. A friend of mine took all my guns for now, to include the 357, but will give them back to me when I'm ready for them. So it's in good hands and will remain that way.

Damn,.... that story is hilarious!

If I didn't give up after my SECOND divorce, you can not give up either!
Everything happens for a reason,......... I finally learned to quit dating tramps!

Everything will be ok,....... remember, I still want to see pics of you in the "Wonder Woman" plane!

I'd say that over and over to myself, and just keep fighting it until the next day, and then the next day, and then the next...

I wish I could just give you a great big hug

I *promise* you, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, though it may be a hard slog... Just keep fighting, giving yourself just one more day. That's the only battle you have to win- one more day.

You keep doing that, every damn day, and you *will* come out the other side in one piece.



I read this yesterday and have been thinking about it all day. This may be the best advice of all, one more day, just one more day. I've been looking at next week, next month, next year and it's too much to deal with right now. But just one day I think I can deal with.

I've told myself so many times I can't let those Afghani ****stains win. That I can't let my comrade's death and a lot of medic's and doctor's hard work be in vain. That would be so wrong. So I won't let those bastards win today. Thank you RottnJP.

I wish you could give me a hug too, and I could give you one back. I'm glad to see you came out OK on the other side. Maybe I will too.

Please, never give up!


It just always amazes me how we can grow to care about someone we've never met and maybe never will. Before I came here I didn’t think that was possible, but now I’ve experienced it in both directions. Do you folks have any idea how hard it is to type with tears streaming down your face? I do, because that’s what I’m doing now. Good thing I use spell-check. Reading stuff like this does help me cope. It helps me see that this will all be worth it in the end.

Thank you Magnus2131

I didn't kiss him though....

I am glad, and honored, that some part of my experience can help you get through yours...

If you think about it, there are variations of that theme common to many cultures/philosophies. You may enjoy digging into the philosophical angles a bit, and run with whichever version resonates best with you... How do you climb the temple with one thousand stairs? One stair at a time. What is the hardest part of a journey of a thousand miles? The next step.

In general, one part that sticks with me, and is helpful for me to keep in mind during all sorts of challenges, is the idea that it is only your choices in the current moment that truly matter... The past is done, and the future will be what it will be, based on the sum-total of our choices, and a whole lot of other factors. Our choice any given moment is the only thing we truly control.

As I've heard it put another way- The past is set, you can not change it. But, any given moment you can choose to create a new future.

Anyway, enough philosophy for now- don't want to bore everyone with my dorkiness.

I'm still chuckling over the " 5'4" of trouble " story, by the way...

Hiya Lone_Wolfe!

I haven't been in GT for a couple of weeks, so I'm sorry if I'm late in posting my well wishes along with everyone elses.

I didn't know that you were dealing with PTSD & the nightmares as well as recovering from the physical injuries...although after what you've been through, it doesn't surprise me. I just hope you keep the faith and "keep on keeping on"! (Besides, I still have a .357 with yer name on it!)

Hang in there Lone, I'm here for ya if you need anything!

B.
