I am who I say I am, I work , really work for a living. I am not petty, banal, or small minded. I admit to a bad temper , in keeping with my Irish heritage. It takes alot to provoke me into stupid knee jerk reactions, but about once every 5 to 10 years some comes along and pushes me over the cliff of civility. I believe firmly in the issues and causes I support from animals, healthcare, politics, children, education, traditional family values, and values other may consider out of the mainstream. Some choose to defame what they don't understand or can't prove thatis not my problem, you want answers find them. I don't do my childrens homework for them and i will not do yours either. I am not evil, vile, or insane like some on Care 2 like to portray me . (they know who they are). In my life no one has died on my watch, no one has been physically harmed by my actions. What I want in this world is peace and tolerance of others, even if that means going against what i believe at times. I stand onmy words with 30 years of sober living, more years than I care to admit to of therapy which goes with the territory of being a therapist myself along with my career as a paramedic.
I REALLY DO THRIVE ON STRESS, AT 50 ,I LOOK ABOUT 35, I HAVE BEEN IN A HIGH STRESS CAREER NOW FOR ALMOST 20 YEARS AND ACTUALLY AM NO WORSE FOR WEAR.
WHERE THERE IS LIFE THERE IS HOPE, HOPE FOR THE BEST PREPARE FOR THE WORST.
What Gives Me Hope
LIFE ITSELF GIVES ME HOPE, I WAS TOLD EIGHT YEARS AGO I WOULD NOT BE HERE TODAY, I BEAT THE ODDS , I BELIEVE THAT ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
TURN BACK THE LAWS THAT HAVE VIOLATED OUR BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS,
What/who changed my life and why
THE BOOK THAT REALLY CHANGED MY LIFE WAS ERICA JONG'S "ANY WOMAN'S BLUES" AT THE TIME I WAS JUST BEGINNING TO TAKE A HARD LOOK AT MY LIFE AS IT WAS IN MY MID-THIRTIES AND KNOWING I NEEDED TO CHANGE SOME THINGS .
