Romantic relationships and trust

major disappointments in my life....whenever I trusted someone they ended up hurting my feelings so I try to keep a distance whenever I meet new people.

On the romantic field, well I'm not a romantic person and saying it's a disappointment gives you the reason why I'm not

Really disappointed:

- The Seahawks lost Super Bowl XL against the Steelers.
- The Mariners couldn't finish in their historic 2001 116-win season and make it to the World Series.
- The Sonics were bought by an outsider and moved away from Seattle to OKC.

Being a Chiefs fan.... I am numb to this disappointment by now though.

If it weren't were for OKC I would still be living in a basketball wasteland.

A disappointment that truly broke my heart:

STEVE EFFING NASH!!!! WHHHYYY GOOODDD? WHY? And Dwight Howard too??

I refuse to watch the NBA any more so you can have your team. They are no good to me.

The Chiefs are trending upwards, they have a lot of talent on their team so I wouldn't be surprised if they become a perennial AFC West division winner soon.

The Chargers talent is aging, Broncos are rebuilding around a Hall of Fame but still old QB, and the Raiders just can't catch a break.

Finding out I had cancer

Losing my left arm to remove the tumor, wife leaving me due to not being able to cope, and losing my job of 15 years.

Am I bitter? It hurt like all kinds of crazy, or it use too.

Am I still bitter? Learning you have a 33% of dying within the year or 45% chance in the next 5 years made me look at all the negative things as positives. None of those things were possible if I was dead. I have a really good job again, I wasn't left handed, and my ex didn't fight me for our daughter. Did it suck I had one of worst 18 month runs known to man. Yes. Is it great to press on and challenge life after it kicked your ass? Hell yeah

Even more so when there families are religious fanatics that refuse them treatment that can help them live longer or better, but instead insist on prayer to heal them. Then the kids die and the parents have the audacity to say it was god's plan or that god works in mysterious ways, at that point it isn't even disappointment anymore, it's full blown, white hot anger.

Also, I'm not implying I'm disappointed with religion or god, believe what you want to believe, it's those people in specific I'm talking about.


And AshRandom appears... now!

Apparently people think I'm the only atheist alive online. Apparently they think accusing you of being me is some kind of insult. Apparently they think I'd use the incorrect homophone of 'their' but I digress... See how they malign you for your good works? We're some kind of disgrace in their minds because we actually use our minds to think and our hands to help.

I work volunteer fire rescue, I've seen the worst traffic accidents and burn victims my city has to offer. These assholes have no idea what life and death looks like. They sit on high horses offering charity and hard work to no one. While we slog it out with walking-tragedies and actually do the work of the lord we have no faith in. What little faith they have in their own imaginary friends. As if a loving God would want mere praises, not toil. As if a divine entity would seek nothing more than blind faith and not the hard honest work of good neighbors.

They think we should fear their God. They don't seem to understand anything do they? Even if we are living in a bizarre cartoon universe where our souls are weighed on the scales of justice against that of a feather -- how could those of us, who daily offer up the bread our own lives, have anything to fear? Preposterous scumbags full of self righteousness and self entitlement will sink into bottomless pits should such a ridiculous trial ever be conducted by the power of the cosmos.

hell yeah dude, way to hang in there and make the most of what you have left! I have leukemia myself so I can relate on the cancer thing (CML) since I was 19. I nearly passed out on college orientation day in the auditorium so I drove home passed out there. My mom came by to wish me goodluck with college, freaked out and drove me to the hospital where I regained consciousness. Thankfully it was really treatable but the Dr in the ER that admitted me basically said the only reason i was alive was because I was in such great shape before the cancer took hold. i was living on a week's worth of borrowed time and she'd never seen anyone with the blood work results that mine came back as. When they did a blood analysis I had a white blood cell count of over 318,000 I think they said. Lost everything minus my life, limbs and family. 9 straight days in the hospital as the only person on the oncology ward under the age of 60 who had a 50% chance of living which were good odds. Walked out 40 pounds lighter due to a procedure called Leuko-phoresis and a crap ton of oral chemo. I'm in remission now but it still kinda sucks, since you know... its living with a wildcard the rest of your life.

You too, you fall under the "Man" category. Reading your stories both inspires me and makes me feel like a total bitch.

lets see... biggest was myself at walmart while i was still in high school. i was getting bad grades in some courses because i didn't care enough, no real plans for my future, a few friends that were only because we shared an interest in school and went our separate ways after. it hit me one day: is this it?

i then got a call from a recruiter and joined the navy soon after graduating high school. boot camp was pathetically easy, and that's from an overweight otaku who barely worked out on his free time, but i was motivated to pass. it was the proudest moment of my life when I got my ball cap to symbolize i was now a sailor.

afterwords, the feeling faded and i felt no different then when i was at walmart. some days worse.i feel like i didn't change at all.

it's had it's ups and downs. im still in after 5 yrs. ive circled the world, got a rate, and am now working on it. i just wish i still had that drive i felt at boot camp.

there are worse ones, much worse but i dont feel like posting those today.
