At 34, starting over is not fun but I think it can be considered a test of ones esteem. I started out in shambles but after help I have new goals and am happy in life. I enjoy church, I go every Sunday and I also attend a single parent help group that is a true help.
I now live with my parents, ok sad yes but we all have to start somewhere! I am disabled, I suffer from petit mal seizures, 30-45 second 'spaced' auras. They don't effect my day to day life, I have 1 or 2 about every 30 days. It does, however, keep me from driving - down here that is a big problem! After my second car accident caused by a seizure, where I rear ended a lady and her daughter, I gave up my license freely. I have a scooter which gets me easily to most places, I have taken it to Wilmington and to myrtle beach. OK, a scooter isn't the most ideal mode of transportation but I can ride all week long for less than 20$. With a lot of family close by if I need a ride it isn't hard to find.
I owned a very successful house painting business until my disability and the housing market slowed to a crawl. I still paint, I do smaller jobs when they are available. I also work part time as a cashier, I enjoy the job, I love to talk with the customers and see the locals.. Holden Beach is not a big area, seems like we all know each other here.
I find being honest on my profile will weed out the ones who are looking for perfection... We all know that is very hard to find, I feel my positives out weigh my negatives and am worth starting a conversation with or continuing one I start.
