Thanks man. Issa bummer that's for sure

Talked it over, mothers not bad off yet to where I need to come back. As she says. But anyways, talked things over with brother and fiance. I made a commitment to uphold and I'm not about to start burning bridges. Haven't gone through hell and slept in a sauna these last 2 months with a trainer for nothing. Lmao. And we don't need another 3700 dolla bill.

I understand what you're dealing with. Unfortunately at a young age. I had a grandfather who had ALS. It will take sting relationships for what lies ahead. Best of luck to you. We are always here when you need us. Many of us can be contacted personally for support. I hope all works out.

Having to quit unfortunately):

Well, as much as I hate to do it. I think I am having to leave and go back home. So much is going on that I can't be out on the road away. With the start of the year my grandfather passing, best friend taking his own life. If things couldn't have gotten anymore down they have. I left NC and my fiance to come pursue a dream of mine that I have had since I can remember. After busting tail performing labor roofing and taking on a cabinet apprenticeship in millwork when I was 17 I was able to buy a house at age 22yrs. My goal was to come out on the road, eventually make enough so that my fiance could take off from working full-time and go to school, acquire her real estate license and we start flipping houses after renting our current one out. Well, for years, my mother has had medical problems that Chapel Hill and another hospital couldn't figure out what was wrong. Muscles deteriating and etc. Just got the news she has been diagnosed with ALS. And somebody is eventually going to have to help care for her. That leaves my brother. 20 years old. He is halfway finished with acquiring his residential electrical license and moving out on his own for the first time end of this month. I just don't have it in me to take that from him and him not fulfill his goals. I feel I have already been somewhat successful at my age and I can keep going. Thankfully I have learned 2 trades to get by and have options out there. Spoke with a woman for dump truck driving that offered to get my cdl for me in Jan. Once my ticket dropped off my record bit I couldn't wait and she says I'm more than welcome to come drive and learn that through her business. Have 2 weeks left to finish my training here and go solo. But I don't believe I can stay out 4 weeks a time away. On the fence and talking things out with my fiance. But its looking as I have to give it up. This path wasn't built for me. Its been real, yall. Just don't know what else to do at this point.

This has been the best move, but really crappy.

Thanks man, and you as well. Its a bummer. Just know him and his ol lady got into a argument he took off and they found him. Had hung himself. Was just on the phone with him 2 days prior. Seemed all good and happy. But you can never know what is going through peoples minds and what's happening in their lives.

Dang Cole that is rough. I’m sorry for your loss’s. The older I get the more similiar notifications I get, never gets any easier. My prayers are with you and your family. Sounds like your trainer is a L/O and a piece of work.

I’m loading now headed toward the house for similar circumstanes. A close buddy of mine passed last thursday unexpectedly. He was on a job site and collapsed. Autospy showed he had a heart condition he never knew about. Only 45 years old. Service is saturday at 1100.

Coming to Wilson has been the best move I've made regarding work and a career. Was building cabinets before hand. Just finished a project for Emily Proctor (csi Miami) and Lonnie Chisenhall ( Cleveland indians) Well now its turned out to be a wreck emotionally. 1 week in otr with trainer my grandfather passes. Okay. Normal, old age, still sucked. Well, I'm out for my 30k w trainer and I got news Jan. 29th from my fiance that my buddy had taken his life. Service is saturday, and was getting routed back home to get my license this Monday. Well my trainer decides to take a load 15hrs away from my direction because of pay. I get it. But F me right. Sorry, just needed to get off my chest.
