  1. Where is everyone from?

    Lol, Frank is Straight Out of Compton. I guess you still have 2/3 of NWA.
  2. It's my time

    Tom, I am extremely happy for you. I got married last year to an amazing woman also. If it weren't for this site and people like you i would still be addicted and stuck in an abusive marriage.
  3. I still struggle reading long posts due to visual processing deficit. Vitamin B6 and 12 seem to help with focus. Nothing like the hyper focus on that poison but as others have said, give yourself time to heal. Things get better and it is all worth it to feel alive again.

  5. I've been drinking vitamin water zero lately and I find it helps a lot in keeping a positive mental state

    It is pretty neat. Our company uses Concur for expenses which automatically links to Tripit. I end up on the road about every other week right now so it's kind of insane but better than last year where it was 5 out of 6 weeks on the road. Headed home now!
  11. Yes, it most definitely does get better after 6 months (+/- a few weeks). The changes at that point are noticeable; you won't feel back to normal but you will see the improvement in the quality of your life. I joined these forums at about 5 months when I was just about ready to give up and the though crossed my mind up to about the 1 year point. After 1 year, I rarely thought about going back and now I see it for what it is - a deep dark black hole that swallows your soul and personality. Nothing is worth giving up who you are. Stay strong and you will get there!

    Is anyone else here a road warrior? I have been using Trip It for a little over a year and it has helped me connect with my friends during layovers. I figured I'd toss it out there in case anyone else is living out of a suitcase and is interested in sharing some coffee / dinner.
