@True concern... Thanks so much for this post, my friend. I appreciate the kind words. Unfortunately, @Joseph isn't even associated with this forum anymore. He's been gone for quite a while. So your words will likely fall on deaf ears. Still...I'm moved by your post. Quick update on me: After being severely underemployed for almost six years, I finally landed my "dream job." I'm two weeks into my new position as Operations Assistant for a nonprofit based in Michigan called Families Against Narcotics. It's an amazing organization that works hard to educate the community about addiction. We also have a "Hope Not Handcuffs" program that allows anyone wanting help for their addiction to walk into a police station and say so. An "angel" is then called, and that person will assist in getting the struggling person into treatment. We do other things, too. Like Naloxone training (and handing out free Naloxone), family coaching, peer coaching for people battling addiction, etc. I never thought I would have a job that I truly loved. But now I do. Peace and love to everyone. Never give up.
