Two steps forward one step back. It is so easy to get discouraged when you get thrown into difficult situations. Easy to just give in and give up.
It only takes one step to start getting back on track...I hope I can find my way down lifes path this time.

Update: Oct. 2017
All right my friends here is the skinny on what I have been up to and what is current now.
First thing: I am having a lot of trouble typing!! My left hand is nearly shot. I was supposed have operated on on Oct. 2 but has now been canceled twice and I have put it off indefinitely while taking care of other new health issues namely BP that wants to skyrocket from time to time, strongly suspected diabetes and RA being untreated so out of control after having been about one month away from being considered therapeutic.
Second: All of this came on and tied in to a problem with one of my meds which the culprit turned out to be beta blockers that news only being discovered in May along with the severity of my hand situation which being affected by lack of RA control...
Yeah I know, complicated right :p Trust me I am barely touching the surface but my goal here was just to ballpark it for any of my buddies still hanging around and were wondering :)
