    Having A Life With Health Issues

      I an not sure where to start with a health experience.  First I will make a pastrami sangy.  Be right back.  Oh Yummy!  Pastrami with horse-radish muster and a sharp cheddar.  I was born with a heart murmur, lived a good life.  In 1973, while flying a UH-2, we were taken...

    Depression Takes a Lot Out of Me

    I absolutely refuse to say I battle depression. I may be deep in depression and I may say things that depress others but I absolutely feel that there is a battle is not true. I've been in and out of depression since age three. I know that there are medications that keep me...

    I Concider Myself Lucky!

    I get down sometimes I do admit, but I get over it relatively quickly. The odd thing is both my parents and most of the rest of my family has it. It's because of them that I know for a fact I don't have it. I don't think my brother has it either. Away from home I am much...
