What I Want to Do: be myself, be healthier


 
If I Could Change Anything in My Life
If a genie could grant me one wish for anything in my life, I would never have started smoking.  I started in high school when cigarettes were 35 cents a pack and gasoline was 35 cents a gallon.  All my friends smoked, my parents smoked.  Now I can't stop smoking and it is literally killing me.
If anyone out there ever reads this, please, if you don't smoke, don't start.  If you do smoke, please stop.  If you want to commit suicide, please do it in a quicker and cleaner and less painful manner.
A good day is a day without pain and a day when I can breathe. 
I am not asking for pity.  I made my bed and I lying in it.  I just don't want anyone else to have to lie in it too.

About Me I have been ill for quite a while and kept getting worse. I was forced to retire. Please don't think me rude if I don't respond to anyone or anything. I have been barely able to keep up with my family..
Also, I do not IM or chat. I have dyslexia & I type very slowly.
Also, my husband and I are a sort of unoffical cat shelter. We take in & take care of cats that are dumped by our house. I guess we are known as the crazy cat people in the neighborhood. We take care of them and try to find homes for all we can, but like any shelter, we end up with more than we can find homes for. They are mostly adults and I cannot take them to the local shelters. We do not have a no kill shelter here in my town. It is costing much more than we can afford. I also donate though my work to the Bat Conservancy, local shelters and the Nature Conservancy. I will sign any petition, but I cannot afford to donate.
