About Bkcook
Joined January 2014
Hi, my name is Brenda Cook and I want to take a moment and introduce myself. After a lifetime of working in the computer field, I got sick and lost everything. I was unable to get out of bed some days. Unfortunately when the money dried up, so did most of the “friends”.

Before my diagnosis with MS and being put on disability, I was a Computer System Analyst and beginning training in web development. Now that I'm on disability and unable to work, I welcome the opportunity to continue my education in this direction with Wealthy Affiliate.

This is a community of like minded individuals and I am so blessed that I found this site. The tricks of the trade that I have learned here is far superior to anything I have previously been exposed to in the traditional educational system.

Welcome to Premium WA Brenda. Hope to connect with you soon. I also retired from the government in 2008 and am now on SS. You have a good list of social media contacts. Contacting you will be easy as I have some of them as well. Enjoy your stay.

Hi Brenda, and thanks for the return follow =] I just read your profile and found that you and I have quite a bit in common in the health department. Ten years ago I was diagnosed with a congenital defect that resulted in six abdominal surgeries, the loss of all savings, and the loss of my ability to even get out of bed for the vast majority of each day. Not quite two weeks ago I found this wonderful community and am feeling the uplift of support, knowing this is the place that will help me reinvent my life.

My heart goes out to you... If I can be a source of encouragement for you in any way, on any day, it will be a gift to me to be able to give. Sending you goodness and courage; looking forward to seeing all you've already accomplished :) Blessings, Gwynn

Thanks Gwynn,

Appreciate the good wishes, consider them happily returned back to you.

I've been in a massive state of depression and haven't been following through with my lessons. Time to go back to the beginning and start over. That's the wonderful thing here, we can always go back through the lessons and apply what we learned and move forward.

Yes it is a wonderful place to find support. We are not alone in our journey and someone is always there to bring us up when we are at our lowest.

Looking forward to watching your success.

Hugs,

Brenda

I has been a wonderful place for me. I'm not making much progress with the websites, but when you don't work on them for days, what do you expect. The friendships I have here helps more with the depression than anything else I've found.

It's a good place to be and believe there are a lot of us who can't work through no fault of our own!

Welcome to the family.

I've been out of the computer force since my layoff in 2004/5 can't remember. Then 5 years with Avon, and out of the work force since 2009 when I got the MS diagnosis. To say my skills are rusty would be an understatement. Boy have things changed.

So glad I found WA. I'm just trying everything I can to feel like I can still contribute. Focus on the little things. I can still walk and when my eyes cooperate drive. Other than that, mind wants, but body has other plans!

So what part of the IT were you in? I just read your profile. Database for small business. I'm assuming you are more versed in the PC side of the house? I am planning to convert my old laptop to Mint linux. It won't run Win 7 so it's a paperweight right now.

That will be a whole 'nuther can of worms for sure. Sounds like fun.

Yep, when you feel you are at the end of your rope, I'll do my best to encourage you. However, when I'm ready to throw in the towel, I expect the same in return.

Best of luck and we'll talk soon I'm sure.

Brenda

There are a lot of us, aren't there? I felt so alone at first, now I'm amazed by the number of people that are all around me. I have learned to use it. Now when I do something really stupid, crazy, or just insane, I blame it on the MS. Now I can admit to you, sometimes I'm aware and just using it as an excuse, but let someone prove it! Have fun with it. We're stuck with it might as well enjoy it.

All the best to you on your business.

Hi Brenda! A big welcome to WA! I know exactly what you mean, this is something that is so very different than all the other things I have tried, and I too feel blessed by this! I too am on disability, because of 3 back surgeries that didnt really help much, and now I am on pain meds every day of my life, which I hate! Anyway, dont want to bore you with that, so, hope to talk soon, and thank you for the follow! Appreciate it greatly! Have a blessed day! Tammy

Onward and upward!

tammygreg2 Premium
That's right! You can do this! And, I am certain I can too! You have a disability so much worse than mine, and I will defint, itely pray for you! God does wonders, and sometimes people don't even know it, until they figure it out later on. I know about the money situation too! I was divorced when I had those back surgeries, trying to raise my two kids, and trying to live on $600 a month! I got a little help from the Family and Children Services here, but not near enough! Now, my kids are grown and married with families of there own, and doing so great! I am so proud of them! They had a Dad who was not around that much, and did not contribute to their welfare like he should have. All that is now in the past, and I guess I did a good job with my kids, cause they are so wonderful, and they love me, and I am just crazy about them! And my grandsons, 2 of them, and 1 granddaughter from my daughter. She is 3-1/2 months old. And, what really gets me, and makes me proud, is that they want to help me! But, I am just fine, I am married now, and very happily at that! I finally found somebody that does not just think about himself! My kids are so glad I am happy. Well, sorry, I know I went on and on about my kids and all, but am a very proud parent! I do wish you all the very best in health that I can, and I WILL pray for you! Know this is very long, but I feel we have something in common. Please, talk to me anytime you want, and I promise I won't be talking about my kids, or family, unless you want to! I want to know about you and your family! Sorry this is late getting back to you, but I have been busy working with my husband and is hard sometimes to keep up with things. Hope you have wonderful and pain-free days ahead, and of course, healing!

Understand about the time issue. My disability really isn't all that bad, it just has it moments. Can't hold down a job because we never know when that "brick wall" will be hit. Sure makes it easy to be "lazy" so I have to watch out for that.

Don't apologize for going on about your family. I've made lots of mistakes and not sure if things will ever work out with my son, so I enjoy hearing about the success of others.

To our mutual success with WA!

Welcome. We all have to take things in stride and move on I guess. You just made me realize it has been five years (Aug) since my diagnosis.

With that time frame in mind, I've come a long ways. Most importantly was probably finding WA coming up on six months, so I guess I better get it in gear. I've made a lot of progress, but so much more needs to be done.

Lets make a pact to help each other. Course that's the way it is around here. Helping each other at every turn. Thanks so much for the feedback on my sites. Now that people are starting to look, I better get moving and get t hem updated, huh?

bkcook Premium
Thanks. Yep 6 months and I've been having fun, but not really staying on track. Oh well, I've got the rest of my life!! I've met a lot of nice people and gotten alot of "atta girls" so it's all good.

My only advise would be start the lessons, read ahead if you must, but finish each lesson and do your homework. Be careful when you get answers to your questions b/c no one knows what lesson you are on. The question you are asking will most likely be answered within the next 3-4 lessons. (Been my experience anyway) Never be afraid to ask questions. Many time when I was ready to ask, someone else did. That taught me, there's always someone else with the same question.

Enjoy the ride! Prepare for info overload! Trust Kyle and Carson. They really do know what they are doing.

Brenda, Firstly let me say thank you for taking time to look at the post and I understand that the two names seem closely associated so it's easy get mixed up, that's okay.

Focus, as you say; can be difficult for all of us but I understand the health challenges you're facing and it mustn't be easy for you.

Small success's are important and finding things that you can do, small things that make a difference to your potential site visitors - have the power to raise one's confidence and propel us on to new challenges.

If you go to Pow Toon and have a look there, there may be a trial.

I think you could have fun with it and the possibilities are endless with it's use. Besides, Google seems to like You Tube stuff and cartoons are very much trending right now, maybe worth having a look.

You never know, you could be the next super animator just waiting to be discovered?

Once again thanks for taking the time to check out the post.

Anything I can do to help please don't hesitate to get in touch, I'm no whizz kid but I always share what limited knowledge I have.

Take care Brenda.......

Thanks. With all the support I have, I know I can not fail, unless of course I quit and I'm not gonna do that.

I've been exposed to the Law of Attraction and believe in the entire concept. I've just been lax and lazy. Time to pull myself up by my bootstraps (oh wait, I wear flip flops now because I can't put shoes on) and get back to work.

Melody Cook, here ... thanks for the follow Brenda. We are also in dire straits after job loss and health issues. I kind of have a plan for my site but where I am lacking is the technical ability to put a web site together. I was so happy to find this group and I am hoping that you all can help me. My talent is words & ideas and I am always happy to share and tweak content for anyone who needs it.

bkcook Premium
I see on your profile you perfer the holistic way. I'm trying to get my niece to sign up for WA and put up a website. She does a LOT of research on things. She has multiple health issues, Celiac, crohns, among others. My sister has digestive problems and I have MS so there is a lot of research.

When you get your site started, I'm going to share the link with her. It might be the final things that convinces her to join. Perhaps the two of you can share your holistic information.

I don't have any medical background so I have a hard time understanding what I have to know to keep my MS in check. I see all these possibilities for website subjects, but don't understand what I'm reading so I can't put it together.

Hi Brenda, It is so nice to meet you! Reading your intro reminded me of my own health issues. Currently I am waiting to see if my disability will go through. I have Type II Diabetes, Herniated discs, and Neuropathy.

For years I was a CNA then transitioned myself to work with Developmentally Challenged individuals. I loved everything about my work so passionate about helping others. Four years ago I just could not do the work anymore so luckily I found a company I now work for as an Independent Consultant working with essential oils. It's funny, the certified oils have helped me deal with my health & pain better then my own medication given by my doctors. I truly have a better outlook on natural products.

I'm gonna head over to Google and add you now. Hope to chat with you soon. I wish you all the success. Have yourself a Blessed Day!

Thanks so much. I really want to get back to the fantasy site, but while I was off in the tulip fields, Amazon dropped me because of lack of activity. Guess I just need to set a schedule and stick to it. Yeah, right! I've been saying that for four months and I still feel like the newbie that started yesterday.

I don't like the cold either. My answer to that is wearing clothing in layers and wearing thermal underwear. Lol. I always imagine a warm fireplace when it is cold...never had one though.

Eat a tea spoon of honey in the morning on an empty stomach, it will strengthen your immune system and help against the cold.

I wish you the best and you have a great background. Those people were not your friends and it is their loss.
