My account was disabled for several months because I infracted upon the Ubuntu Code of Conduct. I had a medical issue that required hospitalization and I'm making very good progress in my recovery. I reviewed the code of conduct and I've had time off to reflect upon my illness and how to cope with my symptoms and I wanted to return to say that I'm doing much better in my life now. I've moved to Nutley, NJ in a supportive living housing environment in a large apartment with another room mate who I get along with quite well. This was about two months ago when I moved in. I'm happier and healthy now and my medication dosage level has increased so it's much more highly effective. I'm trying to be as general as possible in describing my condition in the public and I don't want to get too specific about it.
I've learned the importance of conviviality and being sociable with others. I'm making new friends fast and we're participating in social meetings and parties during this summer. Things are going well with my parents and me and my life has taken a dramatic improvement recently. I can say that I've put my past behind me, forgiven others for their wrongs against me, and I hold no grudges against anyone. I'm happier now and this is the best chapter in my life now.
I'm fully disabled and I'm retired and I like this new lifestyle a lot.
My plans for the future are to help my parents to move out of their home into their new apartment this weekend. Longer term, I plan to enjoy my new lifestyle and make more new friends at the local public library and coffee shop. I met my best friend at Starbucks out of all places and he's been a loyal friend to me.
I'm saving up 6 months of money for emergencies and I should reach my goal by the end of this year or I'll be really really close to hitting my mark. Beyond that, I'm paying off old debts quickly and I'm nearing the light at the end of the tunnel medically speaking and financially.
I'm thankful that my account is now active and I've learned some lessons about my medical condition. You don't know what you've lost until it's gone is very true. I rely on Ubuntu Forums to research specific technical problems and solutions and it's kind of hard to troubleshoot without this resource. I won't abuse my membership in the future.
I find that the people on Ubuntu Forums are a bit more helpful and friendly than other places including social media outlets. You can look me up using my real name Welly Wu if you wish to contact me or send me a friendship request or follow me. I've cleaned up my act in real life and online due to my ongoing treatment during recovery. One of the most salient aspects about Ubuntu Forums is how far strangers will go out of their way to try to understand me and my situation in order to help me. I like the fact that people here know their limitations on how they can help and they don't try to point me to chase paper dragons if they feel that they've reached their limits.
Finally, thank you. I know that this was a long post, but I felt it was necessary. I hope you don't flag this post as spam or report it to a moderator or administrator after having read it.
