    An update for those of you that remember

    Well I thought i'd update you all that remember my last thread of how i was depressed and had given my guns up for a while.

    Well I left the guns with my parents and took some time to myself and I'm doing a lot better. I got my guns back and honestly i felt naked without them.

    I found out i'm going to be a daddy and I got married march 6th.

    I finally had enough of my job at the school and the school itself so i quit and found a job as an in home computer tech in birmingham. Work is extremely slow right now but hopefully it will pick up soon.

    Life is going pretty good now. Things are still tight but i'm not so depressed anymore now that i've gotten married to my beautiful wife and have a kid on the way. Kinda puts things in perspective for me. So now i'm working on trying to get into flight school at wallace state and get a new career started.

    I want to thank everyone that helped me through the hard time i was going through. Your words were really helpful

    Glad to hear you're doing better! I hope the flight school goes well, I went through it a few years ago. I hope you have lots of money, or really like the idea of paying off lots of student loans.

    Flying is very fun though, there's nothing like it!

    Congrats on the new wife, and baby on the way!

    Well done, and congrats.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    SUPER Glad to hear that news! I've been wondering what's been going on since your last post. It sounds as if you've turned a positive corner and have a bright outlook on the future. It was helicopters, right? Good luck and congratulations on all the positive changes.

    Glad to hear you're doing better. Sometimes, just taking a step back and looking at things from a big picture point of view can make all the difference in the world.

    Best wishes to you and the new family.

    Now that would get me really depressed.... but I"m too old for another child, I'm still working on raising 2 grandkids on my own, and since I'm single.... and don't want help. LOL

    Glad you are feeling better ..... good luck and hang in there.
