Thanks for the prayers, Kitty. If you want to pray for her by name, her name is Azalee.
The kidney stones is about $10k, and she's racked up her credit card bills to about $7k. There might be more, but that's probably the bulk of it.
I did. Looks like it got deleted. :(
Things are getting better. I'm helping her address some things in her life that have pushed her to this dark place. One of them is her finances. In the summer, she had two kidney stones which required surgery to remove. Combine that with her having to quit her job for other health reasons, she's underwater. I spent three hours with her opening up bills and figuring out how much she owes and calming her from her panic attacks.
I've helped her come up with a plan to get out of the hole, but it's going to take some time. I came here out of desperation asking for charity, prayers, information...anything.
i dont have any experience with options so i wouldn't know how to do whatever you're talking about. im still a noob when it comes to investing.
The day ZLCS announced they failed both their P2 trials I had only gotten 2 hours of sleep. (She's an insomniac and wanted to talk all night.) I remember waking up for work and seeing my portfolio was down and I really didn't care. When someone you care about is so close to death money doesn't mean much. Even though it's not me going through the pain, it really has helped put things in perspective. Thanks for the kind words you two.
Thanks. I think she is through the worst of it. She has clinical depression and has been put through the ringer lately with her kitty dying, her mom being diagnosed with breast cancer, and the anniversary of her sister's death. All I'm doing is being around which has left me sleep deprived and because of that haven't kept up with stocks.
Thanks Kitty for the summary. I did some reading on NURO, looks like it should pull an OXBT with only 2million shares on the float. I missed the boat on GALE and those winds took her out of the harbor so I'll just wave from the shore line as you all have your fun on your fishing trip. I still have lots of RMTI from before CRUISE1 and I'm just sitting on them--today was a good day. HALO has been kind to me lately as well.
For PTX is it a trade or a buy and hold? I will look into it when I get the chance. This hamster has a life, but the drama is coming from a close friend trying to off herself, so I've been busy helping her through the rough patch.
As for our good friend VTUS. I dont mind sitting on my butt while she goes through puberty. She'll come out and will be the talk of the town and everyone will want a piece of her. But she wont be cheap :D
I haven't been keeping up with anything lately. Is VTUS still good? i may have to move to stocks that I just buy and hold and feel safe not looking at for weeks at a time.
I LIVE! just been away for a bit. have I missed anything the past week or so? drama going on in RL makes it hard to keep up with other things
it is! but it was never a good stock to begin with. my point was sometimes the pop comes late. sometimes it just goes down and stays there NSPR after meeting primary endpoint in their phase 3 trial, DRTX pos results in P3 trial, ATRS had a pop but is lower now then it was before the pos P3 results. ZLCS popped nicely after getting orphan status, but then did a RS and they bled bad. the market is a fickle mistress and we never know how she will react to news. but if you invested in ADXS because of the science, then, in the big picture, orphan status doesn't mean that much, and you knew going in, that there was a long road ahead.
Friday AH sept 27 DCTH got orphan drug status. went up 10% on monday, down 3% on tuesday. Wed it closed 90% up. sometimes these things take time. each stock is different how it reacts.
lack of news is causing people to lose patience and move their money to greener pastures. seems to me at these levels most of the risk has been removed it only lies in execution.
