I know about that.

One month for now.
One kid in college still.
Still own a house - in Florida - same type market as a boat ya know.

I have, for the last 6 years worked or been on call (24/7) for between 320 and 345 days a year. 7 years in the OR before that averaged 61 hrs a week. 10 years before that averaged about 50.

I am tired of working.

Not trying to one-up you but know that nurses are one of the most trod-upon professionals because they cannot get upset and walk off or put the job down.

PS. lots of those hours are of my own doing because I am greeeedy.

I tend to think that each situation is of our own creation... through action, re-action or complete lack of anything whatsoever...
We are where we are... joy or sorrow but brooding over yester year and re-hashing in your mind all the what if's is no way to go... its gone and cannot be changed...
Wake up tomorrow and look outa the window... not in

Also remember.... age is a process of ever decreasing circles... sooner or later we're all down to just us... if ones brutally honest.

Zee, was able to send a bit. Hope it helps. Wish I could help you bring it over to Carib., but not sure I can get away. That is, unless I say, "hang it all" and just do it. Still trying to sell my home and buy by getaway. Still wishing you the best.

i understand that everything is a result of my participation or lack there of... i accept everything that i have done or not done as it maybe... I only wish things could have been different.. i wish i had the ability to see things before and make changes and or get the help / support necessary... and ultimately i wish i could let go... this is something that i dont think will ever happen... I dont think it will be to the detriment of my ability to 'move forward', but as things are, I only want to survive and maybe gain a couple more memories before the circle gets really small..

If i can do that, then things are good, if not, I can only hope to find an assisted care facility that wont make me feel as 'unable' as most folks who are in that situation... I dont think i am 'unable', at least not physically. yet... so we will see...

Forget it Bergovoy! Even if you get an assistant living paradise you will still be miserable knowing you will die and be a depressed old fogy in pain from chemicals and whateber needles they throw at you and all the regrets and knowing that the angel is a comin'. See it all the time in folks. No matter how much money you have OLD AGE SUCKS!!!

So, you might as well go in style while you still have hemorrhoids to call your own.

You should quit whatever, take your cash, and grab a boat in Sin Diego and GO!!!
