It has been a long time. I took 2 falls at work, one from a ladder. I landed on concrete on my back. The fall apparently sent 2 things into orbit. One was arthritis in the entire lumbar and sacral areas. To add to that I was diagnosed with AS. Okay, I will make it easy for you, Ankylosis Spondylitis. This is deterioration of the spine. Think of a house with a rotting foundation. That Arther guy has also made his home in my shoulders, hands, feet, hip, and knee. I was fired from my job at the camp because after telling them over and over that they were not allowed to burn mattresses and plastics and that they were not allowed to bury hazardous waste on the property, I reported them to the EPA. EPA came, made them dig up the contaminated area and told them no more burning. No fines or anything. I was fired 2 days later. So I am retired and have applied for SS disability, as I can no longer stand, sit or walk for prolonged periods. Geez,,,,and I have not started on my diabetes!
Okay, personal life. I am still alive, still single, and think I will remain so. I really do not want to burden a woman with my health issues. I have buried 2 dogs. Shadow, my beloved companion for 13 years was buried last year. My heart still aches. Her name was Shadow for a reason. I buried Jazz this past October up at Moms. Her back end failed very quickly and she was crying in pain. I now have a 100-pound vicious pit/boxer. If you came to my house and she was loose, she would knock you on your butt before you knew what hit you. She would then proceed to lick you until you covered your face and begged her to stop. I would be the only one to put a stop to it. When I approached, she would sit and wait for me to tell her what a good dog she was. So, call first! LOL! The other one is an Australian Shephard and who knows. he is about 30 pounds and grows faster than a weed. He and the pit wrestle like there is no weight difference and he cries if the pit is outside and he is not. In the morning they greet each other like they have not seen each other in years, even if they just spent the night in the same bed.
