I just wanted to pop in and say that my recovery is still a go! Since I last wrote, I lost my job, moved out of state, and am staying with a friend. BUT my life is great! I've since gotten my dream job and staying with a friend has helped relieve the anxiety of money problems.
The trick is to see the opportunity in every situation, good or bad. This time a month ago I had no idea where I would end up, if I'd have a home or a job, and everything worked out just fine.
So take a deep breath because you too will be just fine.
