Bad Day.

Who, what, and why.

Bad Day.

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Sun Oct 16, 2016 9:39 am

I failed my ten yearly medical on the railway, and ended up having a M.R.I. scan. It was found that I had Huntington’s Disease, a un-curable heredity probably passed on from my dad’s side of the family. Anyway as the job I do is safety critical, I had another assessment with a doctor, which I scored fairly low in.

My boss has now put me on the sick pay, although to look at me you wouldn’t know. So I have a few months now to find a job on the railway, or receive my pay out.

As if that isn’t enough to take in, my wife of 22 years has been sleeping with one of the neighbours for about 3 or 4 months or so. She doesn’t wear her wedding ring.

I am now back at mum’s house living out of a suitcase pretty much, and on the plus side, I have more chance of fining a job here because there are a far bigger amount of railway staff here.

My daughter, thinks the world of him too.
All the best,

I don't know if I can "third" something, but the sentiment is truly here.
Hang in there Andrew.

Hello Andrew. Wow. A powerful post with so much grief. I'm sitting her thinking did I read that right. I've met your family so it seems it cant be true. But then this stuff happens. Keep strong Andrew. I also went through this 23 years ago. Wife went off with a neighbour took our 3 children. Had no idea where they were for 7 months. Now I was on my own in a 3 bedroom house the council ordered me out. That eviction notice came on my birthday. Then my car got stolen. Everything I had worked for had gone. But keep strong. Thinking of you. Ken.

Andrew, so sorry I read this not-so-good news. Please stay strong. One day I'll explain why this web site the most precious place in the world for me. And when the last member of this forum to leave the community I will be still present. I want you to stop as soon as the course of disease. I send you sincere greetings.
