MDJunction to me

jaguar62"Here's a success story for you ,, there was this poor guy who all he ever did was work his butt off day in and day out, and would settle for no less than perfection which caused him to somewhat be an outcast among his peers.

But then people around him started to notice that failure wasn't an option and this guy could really get things moving in the direction they were supposed to go so when they had an issue they would hesitantly ask for assistance at first.

But as time went on more and more people started getting referred to him. Before you knew it he was recognized and he had a top executive job,Escalation Supervisor of the whole Eastern Coast of United States for a communications company was staying busy like he loved to do and helping people along the way and life was excellent, good salary and benefits ,loved going to work "everyday".

Then one day (it was a period of time ) it was over ...seemed like it disappeared in an instance (after being diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease at the age of 49) and it stayed that way forever it seemed and life was slowly deteriorating around him ..depressed , no motivation, no job, health issues getting progressively worse much faster than just Parkinson and then being told it has possibilities of being MSA (Multiple Systems Atrophy) well seeing as i wasn't working i started checking out sites online and just so happened on MDJunction and the Parkinsons Support Group and absolutely loved the forums and feed back from the GLs and found out it wasn't just poor me at all, it was lots of wonderful people who shared the same symptoms that i was and still am going thru every day but in a whole lot better more positive frame of mind . So after about a year of posting and reading the forums daily and meeting so many good people I knew i wanted to give back some of this well needed love that i had received , So I applied for a Group Leader Position and ...

I had a "new job" and its helping people as well as getting the necessary help I now require and I can do it 24 hrs a day if i want to ..HOW GOOD IS THAT .

OH Yeah!I almost forgot the best part is the wonderful fellowship around the workplace,,

MDjunction has opened my eyes and offered me a new beginning to what was looking like a very dark end. thanks MDJ (and yes i do know where I would be without you.)

Day 4

May 19 2011

I havent heard from my boyfriend in 4 days. I think maybe it's over. I cant say these past few days have been hard..most of the time ive been way too busy to even have time to be upset. My new job requires lots of networking and ive been going out with work friends after work. I have been drunk every single night this week which is not usually like me. But I am trying to fit in and make friends and I think its working.

Ive also made very good friends with the 3 girls I now live with. They have been inviting me out every night this week as well. So as soon as I get home from work there is always so much stuff that I have planned that there is just no time to even think about my boyfriend.

He hasnt texted..and I havent texted him. The last time we texted he pretty much answered a few questions and then ignored me the rest of the night even when I kept trying to talk to him. So I decided im not going to try to contact him anymore..I will let him come to me.

I also deactivated my facebook so I dont really even know what hes been doing! I dont want to reactivate it either because im too scared of what im going to see. Sometimes I think its almost better this way. And maybe he feels the same too. Maybe it is time for this to be over. I love him and miss him but I dont know if it will ever work between us. His friends dont like me..and he doesnt really like my friends. So we have to hang out alone which is never very fun.

These past few days I have been more social than i ever have been in my life. And it feels great. Ive actually met a few nice guys as well. Just as friends but maybe someday..

I just cant help that I feel so strongly connected to my boyfriend. I wonder if that feeling will ever go away.  :(

Stay strong and stay away from him. The pain will eventually go away and when you get enough distance, you will realize that you were lucky--you escaped a terrible relationship! It will take time to realize this. For now, hang tough. You can do this!
