  1. Yes if they say it's backdated to your six month point then they will give you an extra check or more money in your check to make up the difference. This is pretty common especially in larger companies where things move slowly and they can't always get stuff done right on the date it is supposed to happen. I've done that for my staff and made it retroactive to a certain agreed on date so they get what amounts to a little bonus in their next check.
  2. I had mine out two years ago and still have problems with spicy foods. Also high fat foods cause me issues but not as bad as the first year. If you've only had it out two weeks ago your body is still adjusting and healing. So some issues are to be expected. Keep your fat level low (it doesn't have to be non fat) and meals smaller. I took some digestive enzymes supplements for awhile to help me but I don't need them anymore. It's a journey and a process to figure out what your new body can handle so be patient and give it time to heal.
  3. Unconditional love does not mean you support or condone everything that they do. You can believe your child needs serious help, or deserves prison time for what they have done - yet still love them. Family members of those who have committed heinous crimes still suffer because they are trying to come to terms with what their loved one has done. That's not to say I'm comparing their suffering with the victims or the victim's families - merely that all are suffering for different reasons.
  4. Well maybe it's time to be looking for a new job. Nothing wrong with that if you aren't happy where you are.
  5. Hi friend. I'm very sorry to hear about your horse. I know how important they are to you and it's the hardest decision to have to make. I can't really answer what's going on in your mind but just want you to know that you are a good person and have a lot of love to give. I'm sure you did what you thought was best for your relationship. *hugs*
  6. Sorry this happened to you. Depending on how sophisticated the hackers are you may or may not be able to recover the hard drive data. Try booting from the original Windows CD and not from your hard drive. From there try doing a Windows Repair. That may erase enough of what they did to let you boot up without destroying your data. If that doesn't work take it to a recovery specialist shop to see if they can bypass the program they installed. Lets hope they didn't actually encrypt your hard drive. If they did that then it's probably toast.
  7. Yes, I know we've had this debate before. But I will keep encouraging you to get help and not try to go through this alone. It's my way
  8. Well my friend, you have to let people in so that they can help you. This isn't something you have to go through alone. You need a support team working for you and helping you fight for the life you deserve. You are a wonderful person who happens to need some help. That's all. That doesn't say anything about you other then you need some assistance. And we all do from time to time. We aren't meant to go through everything without support. Whether that's emotional, medical, mental health, or whatever. If you are at a point where you are "stuck" in a cycle then lets get you some help
  9. *waves* Hi there! Chin up my friend. I wish we could all win the lottery and not have to worry about work and money.
  10. I remember this like it was yesterday and its been nearly 10 years now. Though I've moved on to other things in life this event touched me deeply. Such a sad loss and a tragedy for his family. It was surreal talking to a detective and realizing this actually happened and we've truly experienced the greatest loss you can ever have. I do hope this spurred others who may have been hurting and needing help to reach out and touch someone. Make that phone call. See a counselor. Go to the hospital. Anything to try to alleviate the pain they feel inside. Because once it gets to this point t
  11. Congrats on the new love. I hope everything works out for you and you are happy!
  12. Its a painful decision to make but you know it's the right thing to do. You are a compassionate person and that's why this hurts so much. Rejoice in the time you had together and know that you gave these horses a very loving home. Hang in there.
  13. Hey my friend. Sorry to see you back under such circumstances. I know this is a terrible decision to make and unfortunately all of us who have animals must make it at some point. Only you will know what's right - you know Velvet best. I don't even know what to say about the wedding. I just want you to find happiness and be at peace with everything. Whoever that's with and wherever that is the time will come for you. You keep hanging in there.
