Almost a year ago I had a difficult problem that only I could work out.

Sometimes you have to look back 3 years just to see how life is treating you. Yes, I still have all the stress, and have pretty much taken on everything, but I am the STRONGEST i have ever been. I never thought we would get to this point in our lives.


It was a year ago, when Len collapsed in our townhouse, and broke 4 ribs.  After calling 911 at midnight, he refused to go with them to the hospital.  I had to talk him around, after 30 minutes of the guys saying that they couldn’t kidnap him.
