PTSD Project Link
« on: February 17, 2019, 10:17:19 AM »

I wasn't sure how visiable this was, but this is the link to my gofundme page which speaks a bit more about my project than I usually speak about here, has pictures and updates, and has the option to donate to it, should you choose. Even just sharing with others helps. If you aren't comfortable with gofundme, MY is also taking donations in my behalf towards the project.

Thank you for joining me on this journey. It's been terrifying, but getting better every day.

PTSD is not fun, I have it myself although it is not as bad as it used to be.
Good luck with everything.

A Huge Thank You

Thank you to everyone who donated yesterday. With this project stalling, I was unsure how things would go. But after your help, I now have only $264.38 left for leaf springs for Project Pass Inspection. I wish I could divide these campaigns to show this, but I thought this way would work.

I've recently decided, with both my hubby and my therapist's blessing, to take a 6 month break on my therapy sessions to focus on figuring out 'who I am now?'. I've hit another wall in getting anywhere in therapy and after some introspection, I realized it may have something to do with... I just don't know exactly who I am past what caused the PTSD in the first place. I found myself always falling back on what I thought people wanted me to be, but never what I wanted. I don't even know what that want is anymore, and it's like having a weird 3rd person view on your own life.

 If maybe who I am or want to be now is clear and defined, bringing up past traumas will be a bit easier to have distance from, enough to get through them in therapy. I hope we are right.
Thank you for reading. Donations are still accepted on my gofundme or paypal. Even a share helps. Thank you.

Parts I might need also helps too. Currently, I'm in need of not wimpy (aka has the middle support) .5 in lift, 1inch longer than stock leaf spring shackles for all 4 leaf springs. Does anyone have any they would be willing to part with?

Nevermind on the shackles, I exchanged the too long ones for the right ones. Wish I hadn't screwed up the purchase order of the parts for Project Pass Inspection. I will basically have bought anyone's 1.5 OME suspension kit in parts, making it more expensive :(. Oh well...

Another part I'm just in need of is a shifter that isn't all the way worn out like mine is. 1 to 2 is getting kinda crunchy and when I replaced the bushing, the guide where the guide pin is was worn out at the center like this ( ) when it should look like this | |. I used some files to do my best to clean it up and get rid of the burrs, but I'm pretty sure it's only goten worse since last summer.... Also... if anyone wants to buy my parts... make an offer, I'll probably take it, or I'm probably just going to take them all to the scrap yard. Which, is a fun trip to make, don't get me wrong :)

Thank you, that would really help me out alot :D The pin not always meeting up and not letting me shift is a little scary.

If the parts are not worn out, find a place to store them. Youíll be happy when that ďoneĒ thing breaks and you knew you had one and now donít.

Thanks for the advice. Yeah, I've sold a few things because something better exists, but you are right about solid thibgs, like the shifter. But, man, I should have got a picture of it. The grove is definitly like this < >, like a huge divot in the middle.

I am sorry about your friend, Phloop. Yeah, it sucks alot, but knowing people are still there for you means alot too.

Just waiting for her to get in touch. I could text or call her, or just walk out of the house and knock on her door. Iíll check on her in a couple of hours. She told me last night that she needs time alone. Iím worried about her, not concerned. If that makes sense.
