    Re: I was a wide eyed babe in the woods

    We've all been there. It's called "the school of life". And it's very important that you learn there!

    It sounds like you did.

    On paper, I lost a quarter million in a few months. I've felt that pain, and it ain't fun :(

    • Don,

      I totally agree about the special kind of pain that losing a chunk of your net worth causes.

      During '08 - '09, I remember a few times when all I could do was sit here and stare at my screen, shocked numb by all those red account numbers.

      The only thing I can think of that even comes close to that horrible kind of anxiousness is when your wallet's missing and you can't remember seeing it since the bar last night. That's an icky, icky feeling that kicks off an increasingly frenzied search.

      Kind regards,
      Chris (AKA, a convert to Don's first name idea)

    • Lol, you can call me whatever you like.....most on this board have already. Don makes me laugh
      and so does Infn. I don't even mind the insults when it's those two doing it.
