Sorry for the post and run, but I thought I'd drop in with an update.
I have read and re-read the responses to my last post over and over again, and truthfully, I am grateful for you all. Your frustration with me is completely understandable, and if I were in your shoes I would have said many of the same things.
I thought I would give you an update before I left for the weekend.
In the last couple of weeks, I have talked with a lot of people. I met with a lawyer that I'd spoken with before but hadn't hired because the money I had set aside was needed elsewhere. I'm still not sure if I can afford him, but its a start. I have a consultation with another lawyer on Monday afternoon.
Counseling for myself continues. I'd stopped going when I was laid off during the summer, but I was not ready to stop (obviously). So, back I went, I'm going once a week for the next couple of months at least. I have a lot of work to do on myself, and lost a lot of ground in the last few months, but I know I will get there.
Just thought that if anyone was interested, I'd leave some better news on the board. I'll try to pop in again before I leave for the weekend.
