    BigAl I can certainly relate to rough times and being a workaholic. It just isn't worth it, concentrate on family and friends as those are the important things. I'm mot going to rehash how terrible the last few weeks have been as I've posted already but the job certainly takes more than it gives. I wish you and your family the very best.

    Jason, the workaholic convinces him/herself that they are doing the most for their family by focusing on work and thereby making lots of $ to make life better for them.

    what he forgets is that what makes the family richer is having mommy or daddy around as an active part of the family.

    the truth of the matter is also that the workaholic knows he/she won't fail at works but has a deep seated fear that he/she might fail as a parent...the unknown.

    Remember this: your family loves you very much. You can't fail at being loved.

    Printed and in my view, in my mind.

    I hope this helps others. Again, thank you all for the care you have shown and given over the years.

    Mistakes - It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

    Hang in there.

    It sounds like you know what needs to be done and are moving in the right direction.

    I wish you the best in your efforts.
