As of this afternoon, my crack/trailer trash neighbors (condo) have been evicted!! It's been six months of Hell that is now officially over.

I got into grad school.

I think my hair is growing back in - it looks longer (I burnt it off in the sun a couple weeks ago).

I just received some Obagi serum and I really like it.

That's all I've got.

My boyfriend wants to spend the rest of his life with me. Though I'm a little long in the tooth, this is the first time I've had a relationship this good and this serious. BF has a great dick, big soft lips, and the sweetest, kindest heart. Lucky me.

I was fired from half of my income this year for having a criminal record. I get work solely through word of mouth so this is a big deal. I have since obtained my own criminal record and there's no record whatsoever. I have (temporarily) replaced the income suddenly lost, and would possibly win a slander case against one of the clients, but just moving on feels freer than bothering with them. And I'm thrilled there's nothing out there on me that's erroneous.

Also, I'm getting my health back and feeling pretty good (have been unwell for a looong time due to unknown allergies).

Working on my health. Succeeding at almost all my New Year's resolutions.

Still haven't found a meaningful job, but I am doing more on my health!

Got a job as a new RN a year ago (& many thanks to supportive DLers, I think my post was called "Great job interview and then nothing"). Unfortunately, it was a job at a cesspool where patients were literally abused. I blew the whistle on the major figures & they were suspended without pay. My managers know that this job is not where I want to be and I'm applying for other positions. They want me to stay but I don't want to, so they have written me great rec letters and I have a lot of good leads. I'm not happy to be job-hunting again but I'm glad that I upheld my nursing vows and advocated for my patients despite a lot of bullying and threats.

Paid off my debts, got off my anti depression meds, changed my eating habits for the better (lost weight as a result), and enjoy the the little things in life (like sitting on my balcony with a cup of tea and watch the sun go down).

Got a job interview tomorrow - first in forever. Wish me luck DLers.

Someone I wrote to about a job got back to me a few hours ago - two months late - but still may be something in the future or just a courtesy email.

Luck, R11. I waited for 3 months before great job interview and offer, nothing in between. HR people suck.

Had my first date in several years. He is a neat guy, I want this to happen, so I have to move slowly.

It's very cool that after all this time, I can still feel kind of giddy about it.

Eldergay thread. Why don't you old queens hang out in that skanky gay bar in your neighborhood like the grand old queens who came before you did? Drinking alone, as you do, is a sign of severe alcoholism. At your age, you really should consider your liver.

Good luck R11. I hope you get the job you want -- this one or a better one down the road.

I get to take a vacation and see some family and friends I haven't seen in a few years. Things aren't great right now, but this seems pretty close to perfection to me.

I was able to install grab bars for my dad in the bathroom. It didn't have normally-spaced studs, so I had to improvise.

I ripped, cut, and refinished old oak table leaves and a broken armoire to panel the walls. I also replaced the popcorn ceiling with aluminum.

It's like shitting in a boxcar!

I've been seeing a homeopath for some health problems and have to pay out of pocket but it is worth it. I am seeing improvement in my health. My main problem was that my asthma was getting worse and now I am starting to not need my medication. Hopefully it will eliminate my allergies as well.

I spent a whole year severely depressed and gained a lot of weight. So far, I have lost 30 pounds. Still dieting and still losing weight, but the depression is lifting and I feel good enough to go outside and walk around, care what I look like, and sleep. What a relief.

Some days I don't feel as good, but it's gradually getting better every day. I've had a lifelong struggle with periodic bouts of depression, so seeing the light at the end of the tunnel this time is huge for me.

I had a bariatric bypass on Friday. Did so well I went home on Sunday at least a day early. So, six days after surgery I'm nine pounds down and completely off all diabetic meds including twice-daily insulin. The surgery went much easier than I expected (though recovery was hellish) and the best part - no more insulin.

I'm a hobbyist jewelry designer who wants to make a living at it. Between crippling depression (since I was about 12) and a nasty bedbug infestation (gotten from my neighbour last October), I'd completely shut down all my jewelry making work. I literally just packed everything away (to save it from getting infested) and stopped even thinking about jewelry designs. Also, barely left the house, since I didn't want to infest anyone else.

Decided to go off my anti-depressants just before Xmas. Since then, I've been cleaning up my house (I've been almost-evicted for filthy housekeeping several times in the past decade), catching up with friends and family, and beginning to care about my health again. Most importantly, I've done a lot of work to eliminate the bedbugs from my apartment, and they are nearly completely gone.

Because of this (few bedbugs and no anti-depressants fogging up my mind), I've unpacked all my jewelry-making tools and supplies and have been designing like crazy! And really great stuff, too, that should sell like hotcakes and get me some positive cash flow!

I quit drinking and smoking weed in January and have since lost 20lbs. Im also doing cross-fit training and though it's brutal I'm loving it.

Out of the blue my mom just told me that properties my deceased grandfather acquired in North Dakota and Montana are being drilled for oil. They are right square in the middle of something called the Bakken shale. Our first well was spudded in December. We stand to make a fortune. Even if it doesn't completely happen the "what if" period we are in right now is crazy exciting.

My heavy, heavy depression is beginning to lift and I am once again in a period of optimistic 'openness' about what's around the corner. Instead of dreading what lies ahead. Considering where I've 'been' since November, that's HUGE for me. And it just . . . lifted. No meds -- although I was very close to getting back on them. I just woke up one day and started to have little pulses of happiness and excited expectation, instead of wallowing in a sense of doom. I'll take it!!!

My doctor put me on adderall this week and I feel better than ever. I'm taking 10mg, and I'm more focused, relaxed, and I don't eat as much as I was before. I have a great job (185k), no drama, and looking forward to a weekend fort the first time in a long time.

After about ten years of hard work, my writing career is finally taking off--I just released a collection of short fiction, have edited a few anthologies (one of which was a Lambda Literary Award finalist last year) and have garnered a measure of respect in the gay literotica field.
