    Hey guys, when was the time and place that you were like... the worst in your life? But you managed to get through and 'win' in the end.

    I became unemployed on 7 december 2014. Worked 8 years for the same company, quited school to work, spended big, no savings.

    3 Months of desperate attempts to find a job, no luck. Society requires you to have papers these days... Luckely, my parents supported me financially, even though i have about 1,5k a month worth of bills to pay, they kept supporting me.

    Forward to 4 march 2015, i took a shot at IM. Within a week, i earned 500$, then bad luck struck again. Earnings stopped... I was devastated but i refused to give up. 1 Week later, luckiest moment in a long time, things where going again.

    Forward to today; Total revenyou is almost 7k dollars, earning about 400 dollars a day, and aiming for $1k a day :).

    Yes, this happend all in the past month :). I see myself as one of the lucky few

    Let me see...

    About 1990 sentenced to 15 years in prison.
    About Aug 25, 2005 released from prison. Had no place to go and only 100 gate money. Had spent the previous two years in solitary confinement. Year before release prison unconstitutionally and illegally prohibited me from writing people seeking work and housing on release. Ended up living in a tent in the hills for a year.

    June/July 2014 ER trip to hospital, life threatening pulmonary embolism - had just started a lawn care business that spring.

    End of November 2014, diagnosed with a second pulmonary embolism.

    Feb. 4, 2015 life threatening heart attack. Walked out of ICU nine hours after heart surgery. Had several minor heart attacks since then.

    4/10/2015 told that I might have cancer and that it may be at the root of the above problems.

    Moral: Never think you have hit bottom, Mr. Murphy can always show up and show you that you have not. Keep on keeping on. If you overcome an adversary you are winning that day.

    I was about to post about how I hit my low point and came back up for the win until I saw this post and it just shredded my story. $400 a day? seems I've yet to win.
