Thread: Moving on

    Default Moving on

    Hey all.... I'm the guy who built this website. It started out as a way to threaten my insurer by exposing their practices to the nation on the web. My insurer wouldn't ok my back surgery. Eighteen months after my injury I bought the domain name I contacted the insurer and informed them of my intentions. My surgery was approved shortly thereafter and I built the website while recovering from surgery.

    Long story short, I settled my case five years ago and continued to keep the website operational for injured workers. Lord knows they need all the help they can get. Time to move on. I'm selling the website with the stipulation that there will always be an open, moderated forum for injured workers.

    Things I've learned along the way.....

    A work injury can devastate lives

    You alone are responsible for your future. Lawyers and case workers can help to some degree but in the long run it's up to you to keep the ball rolling.

    Don't wallow in your misery. Look for the good things in your life no matter how small or trivial. Pain and uncertainty can blind you from the fact that injured or not, there are always things to be thankful for.

    Be persistantly patient. Workers' comp moves slowly.

    Huge thanks to Tony, the moderator. You're the best!

    Take care...

    Bob Dugan

    Default wishes to fulfilled future.
    There's a path IW need to take...through the stages our injury, pain, anger, confusion, acceptance and healing. But in order to heal so we can get past our injuries, problems and losses it takes time to get through stages of healing. It's wonderful to hear you've reached the end of that path and can now move on.
    Thanks for giving us all a place to do that, Bob.

    What a wonderful sight you provided the IW's that have been fortunate enough to find it. This sight helped me throughout my claim, and although mine is now over, I still come back to voice my opinion and to give others advice where I feel that I can.

    Congrats on moving on with your music. May you be blessed in all that you endeavor in the future.

    PS: aren't leaving us are you??
