I guess this is goodbye (for now)

First of all I normally hate these kinda threads, but I'm going to do it anyways . Some of you know my current situation and a lot probably don't. Well I'll try to keep it short to update you. My wife is mexican and is currently trying to finish up her citizenship. Well back in Feb. we had to drive down to Mexico for her first appointment where I had to leave both her and my five year old little boy. It was the hardest thing I've EVER had to do. Well, since then I've gone way down hill suffering for a severe case of depression, so much I just felt like ending it all cause I couldn't do anything about it. Well I started to finally get better as the time for her second and hopefully final appointment was coming around. Well I just spent the last day and a half driving down to Mexico by myself from North Carolina just to find out there was some paperwork issues and she will have to wait another 10-12 months to try again. Well I can't go through that again, so the only thing I can think of is to move down there with them and her mom. I'll have to quit my job and let them take my car away. I really appreciate everything everyone has done to help me out, I'm just sorry I couldn't bring them home. I feel like it was for nothing. I want to thank the Staff for giving me the chance to help them out as being a Moderator, I'm sorry I couldn't continue. The Staff and members here are top notch and there is no other forum I enjoy visiting more. I will try to get internet access once I get settled in. I'm going to have to rely on the family I guess to help out with enough money to live on. Kinda hard to get a job in Mexico if you don't speak spanish, yeah I know I should know it by now. Once again THANK YOU all for being such awesome friends and I guess this isn't really goodbye, its just see you later. So....Later guys

Life is full of surprises, and who knows you might find something in Mexico that is better than what you have in NC. I for one know the pain of leaving everything behind to follow your wife and heart. I commend you for doing what right now my seem impossible, but remember life is lived one day at a time and most of all you will have the support of your family and wife to help get through this trying time. I hope everything works out for you SNS b/c you deserve it. I'll miss your news posts and will pray for you and your family in this time of need. Hope your back soon and always remember you have a family here that will always welcome you back with open arms.

Adiós y vio con Dios.

I'm saddened to hear of your temporary departure screenamesuck, please ensure that it is ONLY temporary, as I've enjoyed discussing MMA and everything with you. You're a stand-up guy, and you'll be missed around here. I hope everything resolves itself and that you, your wife, and your son find happiness together in Mexico. Definitely be sure to drop us a line if you do come across the internet, as we'll be eager to hear from you.

All the best man, take care of yourself!

Whoa, thats an intense situation you have. I am sorry this happened to you.

Go see your family and be happy with them, you can always get another vehicle and job. You need your family and they need you.

But make the best of the bad situation. Learn to play spanish guitar and buy a Mariachi suit and post photos of it

Your absence here will definately be known and more than likely be missed.

You got your priorities in order if you're dropping everything to help out the one's you love. You know I'll miss you as a part of the Staff and even just as a normal poster. I hope everything gets resolved and she gets her citizenship. Best of luck, and hopefully we'll see you back sometime.
