It's time to say goodbye

Last Update: June 17, 2020

Yes, it's time to say goodbye to all my Wealthy Affiliate friends. I have made some wonderful friends here on WA and I'm going to miss a lot of people.

I am leaving Wealthy Affiliate do to my health. My health has gotten so bad that I am no longer able to focus on my business. This really saddens me as I love Wealthy Affiliate but I have come to the realization that I am no longer physically able to work my business.

I was recently notified that I am probably going to lose my legs. I cannot deal with that as my wife can no longer walk and will not be able to take care of me. In the last two years I have been confined to a hospital for approximately eight months. Here is a list of my health problems.

Uncontrolled diabetes

anxiety and depression


several heart attacks

thyroid problems


high blood pressure

irritable bowel syndrome

hi blood pressure

severe insomnia

severe osteoporosis

recently diagnosed seizure disorder

Chronic neck and back pain

recent nerve conduction study which showed no reaction in my legs whatsoever

and the list goes on. I'm not trying to wine, I just want my friends to know where I stand. I cannot and will not allow anybody to take care of me if my legs get amputated. I will put one of my 9 mm pistols to my head before that happens.

This is not a suicide note, it is a note to let all my wonderful friends know where I am coming from.I will be here a couple of days longer and I bid all of you farewellAnd hope you all find the success that you truly deserve.

Hi Donnie,

My heart truly goes out to you and I'm saddened to hear you are leaving us but I understand.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. He is the only one who will give you and your wife peace, strength to make it one day at a time and shower you with love.

You are in my prayers... may the good Lord Bless you and keep you. Amen 🙏

Oh Donnie I am truly sorry to read all this. We will miss you too. You hang in there & focus on taking care of yourself. I have started a better eating plan so that I can feel healthier & basically took out all sugar, grains, pasta, rice and bad oils. I know you probably can't afford to do that at this point.
Saying prayers for you & your wife and I know that God answers those so I will keep praying for you.
Take care.

This is so sad to read and my heart goes out to you Donnie. But I do believe in divine healing and restoration and I pray at this darkest hour that you do not lose hope but trust that there is a God that truly cares and can help you through all the challenges life throws your way.
Never give up, stay strong and keep the faith and hope you will beat this.
All the best.

Donnie, this is my first time meeting you at WA, but your story has touched my heart.
I pray that God gives you the strength to rise above these health challenges. God is bigger than these physical symptoms and He loves you. He is a very present help in the time of trouble.
