Disclaimer: This is not a stupid self help post, just something I thought people should know. I am quite shit at helping others personally in general so don't expect much or in fact anything.
What I have to say
It goes like this, I have changed jobs recently and have had less hours and stress in general, the world seemed a little more friendly in general. Recently I have been having severe headaches and general aches, so I go to see a GP. Goes through usual life shit, Drink too much - Check, No Sleep- Check, Poor Diet - Check (Apparently Foie Gras, wine and cheese is not healthy!).
Anyways, he couldn't figure it out so I am sent to a hospital for a series of test etc.
Results came back a few days ago. Remember I am in my twenties, average build, not over/underweight, so I don't fall into a high risk bracket. Anyways, I have about 6 months left, turns out I am fucked inside (not going to go into specifics).
My point is, I am not even thirty and I am going to die alone in my apartment, and have sweet fuck all to really show for it bar cars, motorcycles etc. Am I going to quit my job? - No, Am I going to change anything - No.
BUT, I do just want to say to all the guys going in to this game, don't lose track of whatever goals you had before you became obsessed with greed and work in general.
I was born with a lust for greed so I was fucked from the get go but there is more to life I am told.
And before the usual shithead start jumping up and down, I DON'T want sympathy, pity or anything like that, I am going to burn out in my own way. And no you can't have my car.
