    (Ovarian Remnant Syndrome) by my Gyn/Oncology. I had never heard of this before and it terrifies me that I don't personally know anyone who has. Coming from a family of women who have had hysterectomies with no complications, I have to question if this is something that could...

    ... the Changes Keep Coming...

    It all happened at once for me.  At a time when I had given up on life, the wife (now ex) decided that she just wasn't happy with me and she wasn't going to endure it any longer.  At the time, I was depressed all of the time, barely working, and on the border of hoping...

    I'm Getting Close to Either Retiring Or Dropping Dead.

     Now, if I died at work my wife would get an extra $150,000 but that's no fun for me!  I already get a free headstone so what do I need that money for?  Money to burn?  lol

    Ugh!

    I hate those gut instincts where everything seems so.. wrong, but you can't pinpoint the starting point, or how to stop it.  If you drove several hours in the wrong direction, but didn't notice til it was too late; what would you do? Do you back track and take the planned route...
