It is, thanks for asking. I stopped ALL of the drugs the doctors had me on, even against their recommendations. I was taking 150mg of morphine every day, as well as several other hard-hitting meds. I just didn't want to be a drug addict any more, so I spend six months weaning myself off of them. And let me tell you, life is SO much better sober. I missed myself.

The pain is higher now than with the meds, of course, but I can tolerate it. And on bad days, I just remember back to what it was like screwed up on opiates all the time and I instantly feel better.

I love it. I've never had a job that pays to play games all day. (Well, I don't do it ALL day, but I have to do benchmarking and thermal load testing with at least one 3D game with each machine I build, and nothing heats up a PC like three hours of Crysis with high details, a high screen res, AF and AA, and you have to play that long to get the heat measurements to level off at their operating peaks.)

As for me... I'm still stuck down in MS. But I got a new truck! Also, my job is coming with more and more perks and benefits as time goes on. I get free things from vendors, I get to spend lots and lots of money, I get to tell people what to do, I get to play with ATVs whenever I want, I can usually work at my own pace, and I have my own heavy equipment.
That sounds very cool. Kudos, man. Getting free stuff, using big expense accounts, having command authority, playing at will, self-scheduling and having your own big toys? That's pretty much the definition of "perfect job" isn't it?

Nothing much with me, except for my epic post, which only happened quite recently. I'm nutz! And shame on the mod that binned it; that was some quality loonie bin there!
I'll go check it out now.

I hope the convenience outweighs the sacrifices you had to make to get there. It usually does, but it might take some time to adapt. Cheers!

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.
