Why is it that we rely on this site to solve all our problems?

No matter how helpful this site is, I can't help but feel like a complete loser when I use it.

I don't rely on this site to solve all my problems. I keep most of my problems to myself.

If a problem can be solved here, it's not really a true problem. How'd it go today.

They called, asked a lot of questions, and said they'd get back to us. Hopefully in the morning, I pray. Waiting is so hard, when you know something is growing inside of someone. It's hard to be patient.

I can't imagine. How are you holding up? I've been thinking of you.

Thank you. I'm holding up for him. I feel kinda like a stack of bricks are sitting on my chest though, if that makes sense.

I'm sure you do, makes great sense unfortunately. What's his name and age? Tell me your name too please. I wish I could help. I'd do anything.

My name is Shirley, his is Jim, short for James. He's my oldest of two sons at 38. My other son, Chad, is 20 months younger. You now know more about me than anyone else on here. That's until they read this. Time for you to spill some details of your own, mister. ;)

Yes I'm married, think I mentioned that in a reply some time back. My son is 30, a combat vet from Iraq. He's doing quite well. I've a grandson named Taylor and a 10 month old granddaughter named Adeline. They're both Brett's. Lacey is my 26 year old daughter. She got a bachelors degree in microbiology from UGA in '09, she lives in Memphis with her boyfriend who is a cinematogher working on his first full feature movie. Yes Will is short for William. I stand 6'2".i was hoping for something a little more juicy than that, Shirley.

Okay, I didn't want to pry , but here goes.... Why were you on your own at such a young age? How did you manage to educate yourself, on your own? Did you have to sleep on the streets? Who pointed you toward God? .... My dad's n name was William(Bill). He was 6'2" tall.

I came from violent, abusive, alcoholic parents, so I split. my best friend had a dead beat dad who let me stay with them. I'm still best friends with him to this day. I quit school. Worked construction jobs because they paid under the table, no taxes, I needed every dollar to support myself. I also sold dime bags of marijuana to supplement my income. Soon I had a license, an insured car, and I thought I'd reached nirvana. Education never came into the picture until I was thirty. I was a wild child rockin' the streets. It suited me.

What or who turned you around?
Report as
Nobody. I spent my time drinking and doing smack among other drugs. All i wanted to do was live the rock and roll lifestyle. It didnt really stop until about 10 years after my daughter died. Then it became So bad i was forced to die an ugly death or change. I'm a pretty resourceful man, but no one will ever convince me it wasn't the hand of God. Luckily I chose wisely. I was a much different man then.
Report as
God just doesn't give up on us, thank goodness. I have more questions, if you're not tired of my prying, but I'm about to fall asleep on you. Will you be on again soon? I'll try to catch you then. Please continue to pray for Jim.

What to you think of me giving you an emai address, then quickly flagging it. It would make communication easier.
Report as
That would work or put it in the interests part of your profile. Then you can remove it yourself.

I'm guessing it's late and you may be seeing about other responsibilities. Rightly so I might add. You've not answered in a while. Not to worry. I'm working tomorrow so I'll be busy. Not much spare time when you work in a cardiac intensive care unit. Maybe we can hook up later that evening if it suits you. Keep yourself wrapped tight. I'll send good vibes your way Shirley.
Report as
Thank you Will. Sleep well. I'll check your interests out.

Well, if that is the case, why are you here?
Me personally, I ask questions when I'm having an issue that I can't decide what to do, or what other people would do in my situation. I love ask.com. It's helped me in more ways than one.

Don't feel like a loser. People use this site for many reasons, though I suspect that many are looking for the opinions of life experiences of others to gain insight, some are lonely and like the interaction , others may enjoy the thought of being a comfort to someone in need, etc. Personally, I usually keep the things that bother me to myself and try to use some of the responses I read as being helpful input .
