Introduction And Theory

Posted by dav_marine72 , 18 July 2010 · 1494 views

Hi Everyone,

My name is Michael and I'm 38 years old. I served in the Marine Corps from 91-95. I have lived a pretty happy life for the most part. In the more recent years my disabilities have become worse causing my pain to become severe and to the point of not being able to take it most days. I take a ton of medications including narcotics and still have severe pain. I am married and have two beautiful children that mean the world to me. I have a daughter age 4 and a son age 3. Right now I am working towards going through a bitter divorce and my quality of life is probably the worst it has ever been.

That's the last I will speak about negatives in my blog.

I have always been a motivated person and spending time in the Marines only reinforced that. Most people that know me and my situation say they can't believe I haven't lost it or ask how I can stay so happy. My trick has always been to look into the future. To find my happy place. I hate to steal that from happy Gilmore but it's true. I have been blessed with 100% from the VA and hopefully my SS will be approved soon. If not I will fight that one along with all other open issues with the VA. I see myself living on a lake or close to the ocean one day. My children will be older and will come see me often. I will not let anyone bring me down even with all my limitations. I'll be a sports card collector and grow my collection even larger so I may pass it down to my son. I will get involved in school activities with my children. I will not let my soon to be x-wife bring me down. She can abuse me verbally and mentally all she wants but I will make sure my children are not apart of it.

Well that is the start of my happy place. I will continue to build it and shape it as time goes by and I reach my goals of being independent. It will exist in my mind and I will be able to always go there because it's mine and no one can take it away.

I am pretty busy with appointments lately but as always I am available to help anyone that needs it. Please contact me if you need help.

My goal of this blog if for everyone to share their happy place. It can be anything you want. Make your happy place on my blog and store it logically in your memory!

Been down the "ugly divorce road" road myself back in 1995 but somehow, I managed to get through that painfull time in my life and am stronger for it. I'm also a former Marine who retired in 1984...Semper Fi! My happy place is near water (ponds, lakes, oceans) and just watching nature while being with my dogs. Someday I see myself living in a log cabin in the NC mountains with an awesome view or... on a farm with lots of animals to keep my mind off of things...Time will tell I suppose...:unsure:
