    That does it! I'm out of luck.

    Many years ago, I was also going through some damn hard confronting reality challenges with a chronically sick son, wife with breast cancer and zero family help and I just returned from East Timor. I read this and well, had an epiphany and a few beers and changed my world with my thinking. Hope this helps a little. say strong and never give up, ever. Time - by Sir Laurence Olivier Stand before me on the sign of infinity, all you of the earth. With the granting of the law of provination comes the application of change. I will give you the key. And with this knowledge, please realise, comes the responsibility of sharing it. I will show you the way. It's very simple. Throughout the universe there is order. In the movement of the planets, in nature and in the functioning of the human mind. A mind that is in its natural state of order, is in harmony with the universe and such a mind is timeless. Your life is an expression of your mind. You are the creator of your own Universe - For as a human being, you are free to will whatever state of being you desire through the use of your thoughts and words. There is great power there. It can be a blessing or a curse - It's entirely up to you. For the quality of your life is brought about by the quality of your thinking - think about that. Thoughts produce actions - look at what you're thinking. See the pettiness and the envy and the greed and the fear and all the other attitudes that cause you pain and discomfort. Realize that the one thing you have absolute control over is your attitude. See the effect that it has on those around you. For each life is linked to all life and your words carry with them chain reactions like a stone that is thrown into a pond. If your thinking is in order, your words will flow directly from the heart creating ripples of love. If you truly want to change your world, my friends, you must change your thinking. Reason is your greatest tool, it creates an atmosphere of understanding, which leads to caring which is love. Choose your words with care. Go forth ... with love.

    iPhone or Samsung help

    Hey Zen, after doing some research I'm going to stick with the iPhone, I know the OP and iTunes as had a huge amount of time put into it for my music tastes and I spend all of my time bouncing around in HV plant in the red dust a I don't think the glass backing wont handle it. Just going to have to pay a bit more for the phone.
  7. I guys need some help. I own a dying iPhone 4S, Battery is now being charged a least twice a day and lives on the power cord. I work away remote mining on a very small idolated project that dose not have the hyped up mining expenditure cash flow that people believe mining company s have and data coverage will not be updated for the next 2 billion years. So my iPhone is basically a media device (Music via Bluetooth/3.5 pin plug&cord) to the newly installed tech in vintage machines. My Apple iPhone 4S has been a great product but for the price and tech inside both the newer Sumsung Galaxy S6 128G to the Apple iPhone 6 128G I am confused to decide on what to purchase. Any suggestions would be appreciated as I going to buy a phone this Friday then fly back bush. Cheers Zaskar

    It's over

    Nothing personal, but that sounds like a god-awful Saturday. :-/ I don't want or need distraction. Folks, thank you all for your kind words and support. I have aspergers. I'm change-averse at the best of times. This is too big of a change for me to handle. I know what my limits are. Looking at it logically... My nephews have dozens of awesome people in their lives, they're too young to know me. I have two sisters that have made my parents proud, and will continue to do so. My parents and family would miss me initially, but as y'all say, life goes on, they have plenty to do helping my sister with her bubs. My friends are all friends with one another, one less in the network would have little impact. Things would be hard for my colleagues at work, initially, but the world is full of SmartPlant 3D experts, they'd replace me easy enough. I'm not seeing a good case for self preservation here. Sigh. I don't want to "kill myself". I don't want to put my family through that. I want to disappear. I want to have never existed. It's too much. Join the Liberal party? (just trying to cheer you up. :) ) Exactly, in fact if you need cheering up, go to the RIP Dr Spock and watch Leonard Nimoy sing the Ballard of Bilbo Baggins.

    It's over

    You don't need to cope, who says you have too?. Shit consistently happens feeling all this mixed up shit deep where the sun wont shine, angry, depressed and destructive. Hearing move on and you will get over it is fucking annoying and a vegetarian telling you there fucking vegetarian. I've got PTSD from years of conflict that's just challenged and destroyed my perspective on WTF is a normal life. I came come from deployment to have my son diagnosed and still battling a ongoing chronic disease and now the wife has just finished her fight with breast cancer. What you will notice is who your family and friends truly are, most will disappear but the offers do roll in over the distancing media devices but rarely appear in the flesh. So what's the answer, there isn't one. Just push on, changing your environment is a awesome game changer. do everything different to the old routines and go have some fun, real fun, all the shit she wouldn't let you do before. Its Saturday, get blazed up, visit mates, get drunk come home late, throw up in the pot plant and wake up in the morning like a monkeys raped your head, shit in your mouth and stole your wallet, lay on the bed looking up at the ceiling while thinking WOW never doing this again and no one to tell you off, then go get your life back brother. Pinch your self, if it hurts then your not dead yet.
