Hi Im Terry. I Am 35 Have A Wife, 13 Yr Old Twins And A Housefull Of Animals. I Am A Licensed Diesel Technition And Was A Shop Lead Hand Full Time With Cummins Engines, And Ran My Own Auto Repair Business In My Spare Time. My Wife Drives A School Bus And Makes Fudge. (doesnt Pay Much But Every Penny Helps) Life Was Pretty Ok Until Earlier This Yr Was Diagnosed With Rheumatoid Arthritis. I Am Now In A Lot Of Pain And Disabled From Working. I Went From Working 6-7 Days A Wk,(80+hrs) To Hardly Being Able To Move Most Days. I Have Not Been Able To Work Since March 2015. Currently I Sleep A Lot Or Sit Around In Pain, Stressed And Worried About My Familys Well Being, The Accumulating Bills And If I Will Ever Be Able To Work In My Trade Again (fixing Trucks The Only Thing I Know How To Do) 
it's very stressful right now

getting better the more time i spend here tho!!!!

also friends if i miss thanking anyone its not personal. this is also my first time in a chat room and im still learning to navigate through that!!! lol think the website building has been easier to learn!

Hey Terry, thanks for the comment on my Profile and your follow ;-) I joined WA the same day you did and I want to /have to help my family too! I wish all the best for you and your family and your health. And even though fixing trucks was the only thing you knew how to do until now, as a neurofeedback-therapist in training I can tell you, your brain stays plastic all your life to a very high degree and we can learn new things quite rapidly if we have to. A 70-year-old german grandpa will certainly learn english when he finds an attractive 60-year-old woman from the states since his motivation and enthusiasm are there ;-)
Really wishing you all the best and success to you!

since I joined ive hardly turned off the computer. found a new motivation. i try not to think about it but reminds me every time i move and even to type but i worked through the pain for years and it's not going to stop me just because its getting worse now (; Im a pretty stubborn guy lol I'm glad you fought too and are still here to tell your story. I have many friends and family who have fought that battle and I know how truly hard it is on everyone, especially the victim. the meds i take are similar. its a chemo pill. it's worse to handle than dealing with the disease itself. One day at a time. (:

This stuff here is a whole new world and I have been at it part time and I need to step up to the plate and make a living with it. Hope it works for you and your family Terry,

Hi Terry... Thanks for connecting and following me here at WA... I truly appreciate being included as part of your "journey online"... While I can't say I completely relate, having been through the Rheumatoid Arthritis situation with my ex-wife over the years, I do have some insight however into how things are... It's tough and I know there are bad days and some better days... It's always going to be a situation where you need to do whatever you can each day and over time you'll find that each those little steps forward will gradually move you forward... I sincerely hope that you will ask, if there is anything I can help out from an internet marketing perspective... I'm more than happy to help answer any questions of assist in any way I can... Thanks again... Bryan

Yep... In fact I see from your comment below that you're in Brampton... same here... I just moved back to Brampton from Rouge Hill and looking forward to getting back to training again... In fact my original dojo is AMA in downtown Brampton... Where does your sone train?
Reply
TerrySmith Premium
lol AMA north. We were in Caledon for years. Moved to Dundalk last year. Kids still go to school in Caledon. Connor is severly dislexic and we drive him in to ensure that he stays in his program. I was working in Mississauga. My wife drives my a school bus in caledon and got a run to his school. she makes fudge at downeys during the day so it was not a huge deal keeping them in their sports in the city. My daughter does competitive dance in the city as well. small world :)
Reply
bnaylor Premium
No kidding... I've trained at the North a lot over the years... In fact when they first opened the old North on the other side of the street, I was part of the crew that helped out on all of the leasehold improvements...

I know Kim Sue and her husband George pretty well... In fact when I started, George was an Orange Belt... It is an incredibly small world...

I'm coming back likely to train downtown at the Honbu under Shihan Cyr directly... I've been away for a 5 years though... so likely going to slap a white belt back on and work my way back through the system again...

I live in Brampton now and commute between Brampton and London to see my kids and ex-wife... so I'm usually in town Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursdays... We'll have to get together and meet over a coffee one of these days when I'm back... It is a very, very small world... Bryan

Thanks for the follow Terry; I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis so I know some of what you are going thru. I take naproxen (only with food) to reduce the swelling and thus the pressure on the nerves. It is like a silver bullet for me. I can even play golf once a week. (not as well as i used to LOL, it also may have something to do with my age-68) The RA was so bad last year that they had to replace a disc in the lower spine.
Good luck and let me know if I can help. William :)
Reply
TerrySmith Premium
oh no thats awful. glad naproxen helps. it was the first i tried a slow release naproxen. helped a bit but pills tend to upset my stomach a lot have had an ulcer. (possibly still do lol) great to meet you and thanks for following me as well (:

I've been taking it for 10 years and ONLY with meals, guess thats why it didn't bother me.

I have to take everything with food now lol. weak stomach i guess. tried celebrex after too but it was worse. they have me on methatrexate and hydrochloroquine to try to reverse the RA but nothing so far. lots of different suggestions from people here to try though (:
Reply
WBurton Premium
CELEBREX!!!!! I was put on it when they were working on a double pulse rate problem as I couldn't take the naproxen with the other meds. It gave me a minor stroke on just 1 pill. now I write down on every med paper that I am algeric to Celebrex...LOL

Hello Terry, Thanks for the follow. I spent almost 3 years where my full time job was going to doctors and physical therapy. It wears you down. I was classified as disabled when I was 34. I fought my way through it but it took me 5 years to really start feeling normal again. I still struggle with issues and sometimes I wish that I had not come back into the workforce. I wanted to do something on the internet for a long time because I could work on my terms and if I did not feel good that day then so what; I could take the day off. This business and this site is an answer to prayers for the both of us. If you need anything just holler. Dave.

Hi Terry,

I am so glad you have found Wealthy Affiliate. This is really going to be helpful for you. The training and tools are Excellent and the Community is Fantastic and truly wants to help you to accomplish your goals.

I am very sorry for your suffering. I have chronic pain from a variety of issues, so I can relate, at least a little. Also, I know it is particularly hard on a man to be unable to do the work they enjoy, or to not be able to provide for their family, but you have a lot you can offer the online world. Your knowledge is valuable for your online venture.

I want to thank you for following me. It is an honor. Please feel free to contact me by Private Message at any time. I am always eager to help and if you ever get frustrated and want to vent .... I'm a good listener! :)

I truly wish you, your wife and family MUCH Happiness. I know you will Succeed!

Your friend on this amazing journey,

Eileen

hi just Eileen (; sounds like the honor is all mine. reading your profile the first thing that came to mind was my own grandmother. she passed a few years back @65 from breast cancer but was the most amazing person i have had the honor of knowing. loved everything about life, loved everyone, did absolutely everything herself and was never happy until she made sure everyone around her was first. sounds like a quite similar profile description (: reading your profile brought back many happy memories for me. so again it is a great pleasure to meet you and thanks for the offer of your ear (another of grandmas wonderful traits too) and thank you for following me :)

Thank you so much. I am glad you have sweet memories. I am flattered that you think she and I have similar traits. :)

I am always saying "Good Grief!" My hubby says, "There's no such thing." But I say, "Sure there is. It's when we have Good memories of the ones we have lost." Now, if you hear that saying, you can think of me. ;>

Hug those precious little ones for me.

Hi, Terry, warm welcome. I totaly understand you and the pain. I live with pain for several years and I learn some techiques to cope with the pain, mostly through meditation. And of course with strong pills. I hope you will build successful business and get on with your life.

yes pain is not good. i have to use different techniques though. i did strong pills for years from bad back. finally said no more and did not take for years. now have to take a bunch of nasty ones just to try to alter the disease so taking any more than that for me is not ok. stomach issues as well ( previous ulcer ) so too much really bothers me!

Hi Terry. Very nice to meet you. Have you decided on your website topic yet? One I can see right away is building a small advice teaching site about mechanics. People get paid for selling video's or instructions about that. Wishing you well. Thank you for the follow.

When I started my first website here at WA it was going to be about growing natural food and seed collecting, but it was too much research to be able to get a site up and running. So I finally chose to go the affiliate bootcamp here and it was an easy learn and easy build. I am very grateful to WA for the help.
Reply
TerrySmith Premium
lol similar situation. started first one then decided i had no clue what i was doing so cramming in the bootcamp and doing the promo ad first as well. seems easier to learn the techniques that way. then i will be able to apply them to my next site and have it be a bit better :) hpoefully lol.

great to meet you Lady May and great post. i learn hands on play while following the videos. then go over material again to perfect things. its the way ive always done things and works pretty well for me (: you are correct though, im completely new to this and having little to no issues learning it. few setbacks but always get help to get through them. i cant do a bit of training a day though. my brain which is normally a sponge, has been in neutral for the past 6 months, mainly due to meds and what they call a 'drug haze' and total lack of ambition being off work and sore. since coming here i have a new motivation in life. not sure can go back to what i did. started last week and have hardly turned off the computer. its great. on bootcamp 4-3 now. (first time round anyway (; starting to get a bit more content now. just also started to join social media so im pretty unfamiliar with that aspect as well and before coming here had no clue even what a blog was. lol.still need to try to write one but it will come (: learning tons and meeting many new great people in the process. thx for following (:

Terry, thanks for your follow. I'm sorry to hear about your Rheumatoid Arthritis. I recommend you investigate Barleygreen (I don't get a commission for saying that). I use it myself for another purpose, but, as I understand, it helps with arthritis, too. God bless you as you continue.

Hey Terry, welcome to WA! Thanks for the follow; I'll return the follow. Don't give up! You have so much experience & expertise that God has placed in you, you could teach others now! All mankind has God's DNA in them because in Genesis 1 & 2, He said, "Let us make man in our image..." So, you also have God's DNA in you! There is a scripture in the New Testament that says, "Greater is he who is in ME than he who is in the world!" So, there's no way you can fail! Just keep on truckin' on & know that God is for you & not against you. Blessings to you & your family...

I’m sure you’re well versed in how WA works by now and are on the road to healing. I'm disabled too and understand about living with pain. All we can do is push forward and try for success. We all learn something new every day and that’s a good thing, don’t you agree? If by chance you get stuck, please feel free to ask me a question! I look forward to following you and wish you the Best in your Quest. Keep Smiling. Sharon

lol so true. just a few days around here and things are getting better. so many new ideas and suggestions to try. yes. i do agree with that. i have been training apprentices for many years now and always told every one of them that if i didnt learn at least one thing, even a small thing, every day. than that day was a complete waste to me. ive always been someone who seeks out as much knowledge as possible in whatever i am doing and i just found and attained access to the ultimate knowledge vault. :) so good to be here and good to meet. thx for following as well. sorry im slow responding this time.

Hey there Terry … thank You for adding me to your network… remember with each new step and each new experience at WA, you are laying the foundation to create whatever type of online presence you want! There are no shortcuts... It is not easy and the lessons are important to master (patience required). The reward comes when you use what you learn and emerge with the foundation from which YOUR business will grow… It's success is up to you. WA gives you the knowledge. It is up to you to use what you learn and take your ideas from dreams to the reality of having your own business :)

There is nowhere else (that I know of) with the tools, the support, and so many helpful people at one place who are willing to help as you need it… You will find an incredible business community of support. It is a path filled with challenges yet so many possibilities... :) Julie

With your knowledge and love of trucks, there are many possibilities for you as an Affiliate. You could also share your knowledge by doing how to videos or written tutorials of different part installments, etc. Auto Zone has an affiliate program as well as a nice commission rate.
Let us not forget your wife's fudge… May be able to set up a website for her special fudge and create local demand for her product as well. :)
Here are some links to get you started for trucks. :)

Dear Terry:
RA is a terrible affliction to have. When I was practicing as a nurse, I saw some examples and it broke my heart to watch the struggle that goes with it.
Perhaps if you talk to a naturopath, that person could prescribe natural supplements that would help ease the pain. He or she might also have other treatments that would help.
with your professional expertise as a diesel technician and in auto repair, you would have a lot of credibility if you chose to sell the specialized parts for big rigs and autos, especially if you could sell them at a discount on a website that you created. You might also be an affiliate marketer for companies that sold them because you would be able to talk about them from a professional point of view.
Or, you could learn about making videos marketing these parts on YouTube and sell them to companies who want more business. People love videos. That is why they are such good marketing tools.
Just a few ideas you might want to consider?
Regards,
Persia

Be very careful when dealing with Nuance. They are unethical in their marketing practices and the Customer Service is the worst I have ever experienced. Dragon Naturally Speaking is outstanding software.

I ordered an Apple version. The sent me a PC version three times. I paid the freight each way $30x9.

You will also need a modern machine. Mine has 2.4 Gigs of RAM memory and Dragon works fine as long as I don't have other programs running. Dragon recommends 4Gigs ram. and says 2 Gigs is the minimum.

Hey Terry, welcome to WA and thank you for the follow. i have followed you right back.

Sorry about the pain that you are going through, I believe God will see you through this situation. Glad to hear that you have twins that are now thirteen. imagine how much harder it would have been if you were diagnised 12 years ago?

God has a plan. You are now on the best platform there is to learn about ways to earn money online. You just have to dig into to the training, engage others within the community by asking questions so that you learn more.

In no time, you should have a successful online business. Do not rush to start seeing the money. that will set you off track with your training. This is a business you are starting up, it needs to have a solid foundation just as your auto repair business did.

Best wishes for a quick recovery and on building a succesful online business.

Kind regards

Ronnie

p/s our twins are only in their 1st week of the 10th month. I'd appreciate tips on them.

tip 1 hug your wife and tell her shes amazing (; if you have any specific questions let me know! there are many helpful groups online as well. multiple munchkins on facebook they are world wide, check locally for twins groups. in canada we have whats called MBC multiplebirthscanada.org

tip 2 right now your probably exhausted. you will be for a few years. rest up and recoup while they are adolescents...cause when they hit the teen yrs you WILL really need all the strength You can muster up. to try not to kill them!!!! (; lol
twins are great enjoy

Kyle. if i had found this place 6 months ago, i would be in a whole lot better shape by now. possibly financially, but certainly physically and mentally. all the help, info, advice and support in just a few short days of being here has been outstanding. its unbelievable and i never would have dreamed it possible. Its like having a team of health professionals on your side, ready and willing to help when you need it. joining WA has allowed me to break free of the anti social shell ive been hiding in most of my life, and being more open and having people to interact with and talk to about issues I find myself being less depressed and highly motivated to achieve success in life and overcome my impairment. plus i am developing all these new skills here. its a very real possibility that i may never be physically able to get back to fixing trucks. i wish i knew, but unfortunately cant see into the future, so i continue to take things day by day. that was my biggest fear. i have been fixing things since i learned to talk.its really all i know well. i love to work and despite being unable to at the moment i am still a very ambitious and highly motivated individual. Well kyle, all of a sudden all of that doesnt seem to be a very big issue anymore . i now feel that i am developing enough skills here to be able to provide a much better, more secure future for my family
In just 4 days WA has pulled me out from the dark depths of my mind that i was sinking further and further into, and sent me back, heading straight, down a bright and sunny path to my future. WA has changed my life for the better, and i would like to sincerely thank you kyle and everyone out there in the community for all of your help and ongoing support through my time of need.
WA truly is a wonderful, amazing place to be
Thanks again!
best wishes
terry

It is easy to look back and regret decisions, but the best thing you can do now that you have found us is look forward. 6 months is a blip of time in the business world and you have a lot of time to accomplish whatever you set your mind to.

With each step forward you will be moving closer to these goals, you will be able to check off goals and create new ones, and you have the most supportive community in the world here to help you every step of the way.

So glad you found us an dI look forward to working with you as you move forward. Work hard, take action and always remain persistent (there will be bumps in the road and that is completely normal)....and if you need a hand as you move forward, I will be here for you Terry!

Thanks for the follow Terry and I'm sorry to hear of your illness. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease and can benefit greatly from magnesium of which you're bound to be depleted. Taking a Mg supplement could really benefit you, specifically Mg Chloride. Please look into it. If you'd like further details please send me a PM. This community will really help your spirits and teach you how to be a successful IMer. Good luck to you and your family, Ches

Hey Terry, thanks for the follow! I bet you could build some great quality content about anything diesel! I can relate to what a pain it can be to find a platform on the internet that allows you to build a simple website nice and quick. So far WA is everything I hoped it to be. Best of luck!

Greetings TERRY,

Welcome to WA! Thank you for the Follow & In the entrepreneurial spirit here’s 1 back @YA! I only pray I don’t get ahead of myself. As an former Computer Design Engineer for 15+ years, we have a tendency to figure things out FIRST, & then RTFM (Read the Freaking Manual). LOL(Lots of Laughs)

Please forgive my tardiness in replying, got a 77 year old mother who gets my time & unfortunately in 2005 I suffered Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), long story short, I received SSDI in 2009. Social Security has assigned an Entrepreneur Business Development Consultant to work with me to actually start my own business working from home. I’ll be offering Computer Literacy Training to Senior Citizens & disabled people who can't afford the Industry average cost of having someone come to their home to Train them. Therefore I have not been very active in the community. But I have until Dec. 2015 before I'll have to renew my WA membership, I ABSOLUTELY plan to do so as this will be my source for developing my website & Promoting my Services in this region of North Carolina! Please know that I appreciate all of the support, understanding and encouragement! That is the beauty of this community; it allows you to work at your own pace. My mother's difficulty due to her stroke has her having to go to several doctors’ appointments each week and she does not drive. This essentially means that I have to take the time and take her where she needs to go! Please understand, I do see establishing my own business as important, but I do esteem my mother's health higher than my own desires. Pretty much my Bio has ALL of my Life's Challenges listed, but I KNOW that I am More than A conqueror through Christ!

Kind Regards, MichaelP :-)

BTW ( By the way): Just a side note; in PC etiquette it's typically acceptable to type IN ALL UPPER CASE if you are YELLING. I'm sure that's not what you meant, but unfortunately, any written form of communiczation, be it Blogging, email or simply posting a messgae via the WWW, the reader does not know your emotional intent. Therefore ALL UPPER CASE is seen as someone yelling. Hopefully this helps you for future "Technological forms of communication".
