"You're just fucked, period. It is too late to say, "I'll never do THAT again!" It is too late to stop playing the Hillbilly fucking financing game. Your best friend just took you out, financially, and there is nothing, repeat nothing, you can do about it."
"According to Frederick Wolfe, lead author of the 1990 paper that first defined the ACR fibromyalgia classification criteria, "the large majority of physicians, sociologists, and medical historians" are skeptical about the validity of fibromyalgia as a clinical entity. Some call fibromyalgia a “non-disease” and “an over-inclusive and ultimately meaningless label.” Wolfe now questions the validity of fibromyalgia as a disease. He considers fibromyalgia a physical response to stress, depression, and economic and social anxiety, and believes the associated symptoms are a normal part of everyday life."
But maybe full-time RVing doesn't make sense - at least as a "cost-effective" way to live. And maybe spending close to $100,000 on a leaky, easily dentable travel trailer, sprayed with clearcoat, doesn't make much sense, when a basic trailer can cost about $25,000, new. But to the guy who just dropped $90,000 on a brand-new Airstream, this is heresy.
Apparently, even suggestions about diet and exercise are not permitted.
"Some of my postings - most of them, in fact - may come across as mean-spirited or hard-hearted. I am sorry for that, as it is not my intention to hurt anyone's feelings. But if I say you are an idiot for leasing a car, and you have a leased car in your driveway, well, what should I say? Should I say you are a nice idiot? Or should I qualify things and waffle, and say, "well, maybe leasing isn't so bad after all!" and end up like Sooze Orman - just telling you what you want to hear and validating your bad choices?
And in the examples I use, if you self-identify with the hypothetical, am I really being mean, or are you merely projecting your own life into the fact scenario? I can't help it if I say that Joe Blow is a fool for getting a payday loan, and you happen to think you are a lot like Joe Blow.
I would like to be "nice" - but going down that road only serves to take the edges off of ideas until they are watered down into bland platitudes. Pretty soon, saying things like "Frequent Flyer Miles SUCK!" turns into, "Well, I guess they aren't all THAT bad, if you get lucky and all."
Pretty soon, you aren't saying anything at all - just mumbling to yourself and hoping not to offend anyone."
