All you can do is make the best of whatever goes on and hopefully have the power of God on your side to help muscle thru and keep your head on straight..........

I've lived on the edge long enough to have earned taking up a little extra space!

Not much more than a blip on the Serious Scale.

Still, I'm glad you took the opportunity to let your friends know of your travails. The path you tread is not an easy one. In fact, it is tough. But, you are coping and looking out for others. That is something that many could not do.

We all have to play the cards we are dealt. Some do it successfully. Some wilt and fall into the dust. You sound like you are one who is still coping. I can empathize. I've had my share of pain and incapacitation. But, at 80, I'm still in good functioning and am looking forward to however many years I have and to know when to pull the switch.

I have a similar philosophy. I say it like this: "Life is a series of problems to be solved. You live as long as you can solve the problems. The, one day, there comes a problem you can't solve."

You are setting a great example for others. Thank you.


I guess I really misread your post Hawkowl.
Please accept my apologies and disregard my post

Man, isn't this embarrassing.

Don't we all do something like this from time to time?
The only box you have to think outside of is the one you build around yourself
