age is just a number…
Who says you cannot start living after fifty? I have found a Brave new world. 

Come and join me on my journey and the lessons I have learned.

If my journey can help just one person it will be worth it.

I will be writing about a wide array of subjects which I have personally experienced
and are living with.  These include my own childhood illnesses (Scoliosis), My husband’s
 numerous health issues for instance TN (Trigeminal Neuralgia otherwise known as the
suicide disease), Essential Tremors, Heart attack at 42, Diabetes, and a lot more. His
coping with his life altering health issues and struggling to come to terms with this.

I will also cover topics like child molestation, rape, Bullying, Suicide both from the person
 who tried numerous times and from one who watched someone and had to live with the
effects, obesity, Depression and so much more.

But is is not all doom and gloom, I will also share my daily success and dreams
 because age is just a number and does not define me. There is a Brave new world out there.

Come and join me on my journey of self discovery and living…
