R: Retirement

R:Retirement

Retirement is the big topic of conversation at work. Seems like every week another Baby Boomer says goodbye to the work place. I still need to decided whether to take early retirement or try and hang in there another 3 years. Seriously though, I don't think I can. I've had a serious decline in my health the past few months; the most recent thing being my legs, especially my right one. I can still walk good but I'm having some trouble going up and down stairs; going up is much worse. Ahhh! the only way I can cope is to take it one day at a time. The future is this scary place and I can't handle it.

Here's a few shots from another recent walk. Strange to find two street  memorials in the neighbourhood.  The cycle of life: creation, preservation, destruction.

Beautiful piccies - Maybe early retirement could mean new employment in the photo media market! I came across your blog looking for people suffering from MS like my auntie in the UK - she has set up a lifestyle blog for people with MS and has always been open to new therapies and treatments - have you heard of CCVSI? you should take a look http://bettebravoblog.blogspot.com/ - she said the treatment was first tested by a doctor in Toronto! Small world huh? lol huge wishes and all the best i hope you can get some relief! kind regards Kate
