    My wife said she wanted freedom and that it was too much work to love me. I don't know what to do. A year ago my company sent my job to china. So I decided to go to school. I still have car payments and passed my first year with flying colors. But we were heavy in debt and my wife was the one paying the bills. Everything was on my cc. Now I have no job and can't find one. My wife just left me and I miss her so very much. Things are coming due and I have no way to pay for next semester yet alone my car or cc payments. I'm from Ontario and OSAP in their infinite wisdom won't give me money. What can I do or am I screwed. I have to admit I just about killed myself and still am on the edge. I don't know what to do.

  • Are there any options maybe government?

    I'm currenty attending a post secondary school in Ontario. My job was going to china so I made the move to go back to school.

I was suppose to work part time for the company but they didn't give me the hours and said I quit. My wife just took a pay cut and now we are not making enough to get by. Osap won't touch me because I was young and stupid and made mistakes going to school the first moment I got out of high school. Now I'm one of the top students in the first semester but we don't have the money to continue. I'm already up to my eyes in debt is there any assistance we could be eligible for given I'm white, male and English speaking? Or am I screwed and have to drop?

  • Difficult question about fatigue and paranoia?

    He's my situation. I've been working nights now for the past two years. I reside in an office in from 12:00 midnight to 8:00am all alone. No one is generally with in a mile radius of me in the event that something goes wrong. This job I have I like and can't really afford to lose. Here's my problem. As of late I've been having problems sleeping (as in the last three months) in the day for more than about 5 hours. My room is REALLY dark during the day (pitch black :D). I find myself getting more and more tired as the week wears on. Now most of the changes have happened to me very slowly so I've never really thought of them until now. I used to go out at night and have walks, I don't do that now because I hear a sound and it freaks me out. The other thing is in the corner of my vision I keep seeing things like spiders or just plain movement that is not there. My question is what should I do about it? I don't want to take medication of any real kind. I've tried to get back onto the day shift but as most people on night shift know, employers want you to stay there. :P I live in Canada, should I see if this is a medical issue or what else can I do? As well if it is an issue who would I see, a GP, or someone else? It's starting to effect my performance. As well during a recent trip I got to switch back to days for 2 and a half weeks. During this time had no problems at all and could camp at night in the wilderness without having any issues. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Well, thought I'd finally ask this question on here given everyone I've talked to has no idea what type of animal I saw was. Here's what what happened. One night I was at work and looked out the window of my office building. This area is fairly close (4 miles) to a conservation area, in Kingston Ontario. Anyways what I see surprises me. It is a very large, Great Dane sized coyote/wolf/Dog? The animal was about 4-5 foot tall to shoulder and pitch black. The thing looked like a coyote just really thin. The chest was maybe 1 1/2foot wide and had a very long jaw that as well was very thin. It looked very out of place with this thin body and long and what looked like powerful legs. I did not really feel it was any threat so I tapped on the glass. The animal heard this and came to investigate giving me a very long look at the thing. I had my phone and tried to snap a picture but it did not come out. Just wondering any ideas of what this animal was and if it was a coyote/wolf or something else? Thanks!

  • Labrador Retriever in an apartment?

    Alright, I'm a very active 26 year old who wants to get a labrador retriever. I find that they are extremely loving dogs and I've always enjoyed their company. However I do have a 600-700sq ft apartment. Now as I said I've very active and do jog quite often (generally 1.5-3 miles every other day plus plenty of other outdoor time) who generally only sleeps in my apartment. Basically what I am asking is would this be a fair arrangement for the dog given I want a companion to go out and do these things with (have a girlfriend but she does not want to jog :( ) ? Any thoughts? And if you feel that it would be unfair for the dog (Yes, I would get an adult dog not a puppy) can you make a suggestion of a preferably a medium to large dog with short hair and acts similar to a lab that would fit? Thanks!

  • Getting a Media Computer for my TV But what to get?

    I'm having a bit of a debate right now for getting a media center for my 50HD TV. The question I have to ask myself is what box to get. Here's what I want in an HD center (not a notebook): HDMI, wireless connection, ability to download off BT, to play virtually all codec's or be able to get them. 1080P. 5.1 and plenty of storage space. I've narrowed down my search to two possibilities. One being the Mvix Ultio MX-800HD (and get a 1TB drive and N-wifi) total $350ishCAD and a ION 330 ASROCK (with once again a N-WiFi) total $450ish CAD (Both at www.canadacomputers.com). Also keep in mind that it has a narrow space to go into (plenty of airflow basically a place for a Xbox 360). Basically I want to know what one is best. More towards pro's and con's. As well if anyone wants to make some more suggestions that would also be very helpful. Thank you!

New places for oil discovered and old ones being aloud to be tapped for the first time... My question is, amongst all of this... WHY DOES GAS INCREASE IN PRICE?!! According to every stat it should be at about 48 cents per liter here in Canada?! Are the gas companies just that greedy and if so, who should I burn first?!

    Hello, I know that everything with me is fine first off and I am not worried about that. Here's my story and question. I exercise regularly 6'2 208 pounds age 25. Sometimes my blood pressure when sitting and relaxed is 130-135 systolic and 70-84 diastolic at a heart rate of 40-55BPM (btw I feel great no problems there). Sometimes it is at a higher heart rate (60-77BPM) and my blood pressure will drop to around 108 systolic and around 60-70 diastolic. What I am wondering is what phenomenon. It seems there is little information on this. Basically any time my heart rate goes up, BP goes down and vise versa.

    Hello, I am currently really physically fit. I can run three miles without problems. I've been to Peru at the top of a mountain where most people around here would passout I've had no problems. I can pass any of the physical fitness standards of the forces. And have no medical problems currently to speak of that I know about. The problem is my past. When I was about 6-7 years old (maybe younger) I had an asthma attack (My mother, ever being paranoid thought so but I don't really remember things that bad) and was hospitalized for like a day. Ever since then I have had no need for an inhaler or any meds. What I was wondering is, will this effect my application at all or am I just concerned over nothing?

Checked it again this month and 150/55 rhr 55. After doing all that changing my diet, exercising it is increasing?! Does anyone know why. BTW, I was checking every 3rd day it was a slow climb to 150 not a one time thing.
