I wish I had a future or a way out of my miserable life.

First things first, I am 19 years old..Entry level discharged from the Marine Corps because of my hearing loss...All my life I wanted to be a fact from the farthest I can remember I always did...all my friends looked up to me ...I made decent grades in high school...had lots of friends...i was in the delayed entry program all through my senior year in high school...passed all the requentrants at meps..I was sent to bootcamp..and then the shit hit the fan...the docs on parris island told me I had hearing dreams were literally crushed right in front of me..I still have nightmares of my DI's telling me that I am worthless...and I will never go anywhere in's been 1 year since I was discharged...I tried joining other branches ...considerd college...but I'm stuck working at McDonald's...hearing aids won't make a's very hard to keep relationships..I feel like I'm going to be stuck at my sucky ass job for the rest of my life...I live every day hoping that one day I will find a better calling...a future...maybe even someone that I can love and make me forget about how shitty my life has life sucks..

McDonald's is my dream job, to be able to fit in there would be out of this world for me. you spoiled, well nurtured fucks have no idea what a sucky life is
By anonymous at 07,Jul,12 04:20

you have no idea what this guy's whole situation is. only a bonehead would come to your conclusion after reading only his short story.
By anonymous at 03,Oct,12 19:40

yeahh, agreed... u dont really know his situation yet, so dont judge, kay?

By anonymous at 04,Jul,12 01:35

You wanted to be a Marine so you could do what? Your life is glorious compared to the people that you wouldve been killing.
By anonymous at 06,Jul,12 07:04

i have respect for our US military and the way they defend our country.
By anonymous at 11,Jul,12 18:09

They millitarrs does not defend your country, they might defend your oil supplies that happen to be underneath middle eastern soil, but thats about it.
Invade afghanistan to kill one CIA asset??
Invade Iraq because of weapons that they knew did not exit.
you'd have to be a complete retard to rehash the narrative about the US millitary "defending" anything.

By anonymous at 07,Jul,12 04:11

Sorry for your hearing loss. That sucks. But you'll eventually find something that suits you. Life changes all the time. If something doesn't quite work, you take a second look and take another route. Everyone has to go through problems like these. The good thing is you found out while you are still young. You have a lot of time to re-think your life. And you should especially be proud of the fact you pursued your dream of being a Marine because not everyone has the courage to pursue their dream.
By anonymous at 04,Sep,12 02:38

I identify with the hearing problem stopping your dreams I am a nurse who has had a rough year and am working a low paying retail job. Plus I was trying to wait for the right nursing job not just take the wrong ones that called first like I had done in the past. I had the chance to get my dream job at a hospital but I got a terrible ear infection which made my ears numb and burn and made me flunk the hearing test for the job. I have not been eliminated from the job for sure but I am not sure if they are going to wait long enough for me to pass the hearing test or if I will end up not getting the job after all. I have lost everything - no car and I share have a room with my nephew in my living situation. This is a chance for things to get better and for career opportunities to open also but it may not happen. I am devastated. But I think the one writing the post on being excluded from the marines because of their hearing should go to college.

You are who you are, in real life it's not going to get better than this. One thing you have to looking forward to is as you age, life gets harder not easier as most think. You'll be 45 and a sorry mess from standing on concrete floors at McDonalds all your working life. Your knees and back will be fucked and most likely completely deaf by will be in debt and be close to bankruptcy, not to mention relationship and child support payments. So today try to look at it as things are not that bad, here in America for the lower middle class it's in the statistics life only gets more burdened with every day that you open your sorry eyes, but hey at least you can see.
By anonymous at 08,Jul,12 20:47

Ed you ARE a pecker--life does not need to get worse as you get older. We gain perspective with age and realize what is really important. This person may very well feel better with time and life experience. Don't contribute to negative thinking and thoughts. Be supportive or keep it to yourself. People don't visit this site to feel worse than they already do. They come here to vent and/or get support.

You will die miserable and alone. :|
By anonymous at 12,Jul,12 04:59

youre a horrible person and should find something better to do

By anonymous at 11,Jul,12 20:53

Dude I'm so sorry.

By anonymous at 12,Jul,12 00:19

"considerd" college?

By anonymous at 04,Sep,12 02:40


By anonymous at 12,Jul,12 03:27

I am sorry your hearing is bad. You will get your life together. Go to the doctor and get a hearing aid and go to community college and finish at a 4 year university. Then you will make enough money and live a good life!!!

Change your attitude from I can't life sucks to I can. Even though marines will not work out, does not mean your life will not. I do not believe that worthless shit they told you, they were trying to train you, but that did not work for you. As a human your worth is beyond gold, so go back to school now, get a hearing aid, and find your dream girl!!! while in college.
By anonymous at 13,Jul,12 12:18

My friend used to work at McDonalds for awhile too, now he has a masters in engineering, makes good money, and has a hot girlfriend!
By horny harlot at 15,Jul,12 23:03

could you just give me that guy's number?

By anonymous at 12,Jul,12 04:58

You are super young and probably doesnt feel like it now but you will find something better. Besides people who never struggle are boring and as far as I can tell unhappy too. I cant imagine what it must be like though- seriously shitty...dont listen to the mcdicks dick- he doesn;t have the kind of determination you obviously do. Good Luck

By anonymous at 12,Jul,12 12:58

Ever thought about learning sign language, so you could perhaps teach or communicate with people who are totally deaf, you would have an advantage, having hearing problems yourself, you would understand the difficulties that deaf people face.
For someone with your determination, it should not be too difficult to learn, and it would be so rewarding to be able to talk to someone who cannot hear, And remember, you may meet a marine who has had their hearing destroyed, then you can really help, in their time of need. Think on!!

By anonymous at 16,Jul,12 21:21

I wish you was dead, I'm mad because no one post anymore stories since June 19th.

By anonymous at 19,Jul,12 02:56

I'm so sorry I hope things will get better for you.

no, that site is fucking retarded. it's full of bitches like on twitter where nobody is actually saying anything. that site is some bullshit like oh they messed up my haircut. if your trying to coral us over there so they make more money i say fuck you, i wont go.

By anonymous at 24,Jul,12 11:41

hey listen it's not the end , maybe this sucky life is hhiding something in the corner for you, just keep your choices open and trust there are plenty of girls and women who will understand you and make your life worthliving :)
By anonymous at 03,Aug,12 17:14

Hey listen it is the end, maybe you should put a pistol right to your head and blow the fuck away. Give up hope, dreams are for suckers, ain't no future for you, so do as been told, end it.

By anonymous at 25,Jul,12 12:25

Forget the DI's--their in a different society which allows 'em to say such things. You can't treat people like that in the civilian sector. Get on with your life, get counseling.

By anonymous at 01,Aug,12 01:50

Sorry mate it is what it is, you can get some cheap low rent housing buy an old car and fix it up over the years, do your shifts and live within your rmeans how does it make you feel that immigrants come into the country and get more money that you on a monthly basis the they bring the old people here who after a few years are collecting old age security and draining the supplement before you wil even have a chane even though you worked here all your life."nice

By anonymous at 03,Oct,12 04:06
