Well I borrowed 3 years and it is now time to pay the bill. In the mid 90's I was told I had IgAN. The doctor turned me over and gave me a 15 year expatriation date. Well I stole more time. For the last 8 weeks my health took a turn and I am now in stage 3/4 more so 4, I got one stage left that lost one is the down hill ride of the roller coaster so it goes fast. This part can drag on for a few years and I better spend it with my wife and grown kids. I also want to focus on some more important things.
I will not have the energy to haul around my video equipment so I am going to start the parting it off. I also need to attend to a few affairs to ensure my wife will be OK. I have not been able to get life insurance due to this pesky IgAN, so I have managed to pay off our debts except one, and that will now become my primary focus (not counting the house) I just bought this house and fought for a low monthly payment so my wife would have a nice place that is cheaper then rent.
I will use the monies from the sale of my video stuff to pay toward that last debt, it is only $2,400, but enough to get my attention.
I am unsure of the guidelines for listing the stuff here, but if I am told it is OK I will, so I will wait a few days until I hear back from the mods to see if it is OK, if not I will take my chances on eBay.
Nothing can be done an I am thankful for the 3 extra years and perhaps stage 3/4 will drag on for a few, but I will not have the ability to do the video work I enjoy, and I do need to attend to this last debt for my wife's sake.
I will of course stay on here and spout my witty words. I can sit and use my wife's laptop. Later as things progress I will have to part with my baby, my computer, I will NEVER get what it is worth. But alas I will have no use for it later.
I also have to make my own memorial video. I have been making them for years for friends an family, free of course, I am not going to put the closing date on it, just fade to black and I am sure every watching will know why I did not.
As things progress I will be closing my online accounts and turning over my web accounts to someone who can maintain them.
I am not bitter, a little surprised, I had gotten use to going beyond the doctors expectations. Yes we considered all options and I am comfortable with my choice. But my point is to let you know that if days go by and I do not post it is because I am unable, if months go by check the obits in the Overton County News of Livingston TN. If I am there just delete me here. Also I am needed to know if it is OK to list my stuff for sale here.
So there it is, darkness falls upon the actor as he makes his ay off stage, only to be replaced by another, younger, more experienced actor. My his name be remembered by someone somewhere.
OUCH get off the pity pot.
