I'm a retired psychology professor. I've lost 50 pounds in the past several years. I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes 15 years ago but have tight control (HbA1C 5.7) using metformin, diet, and exercise. I either walk on a treadmill 30 minutes and ride an exercycle 30 minutes or walk outdoors 1 hour daily. I also have sleep apnea that was diagnosed 20 years ago, although I have had it most of my adult life. I use a BiPap every night. I have heart disease and had 3 stents placed in my right coronary artery in 2012. I also have occluded small coronary arteries which cause angina.

I have been married for 54 years (June 2014) and have two daughters, both happily married, and five grandchildren. Our middle grandson was killed in an auto accident eight years ago. He was 19.

We are both retired and love to travel. You can tell this from my photos. We usually take one month-long international trip and one month-long trip within the US every year, along with several brief road trips around Minnesota and South Dakota and down to Texas. In the last year our travel has been limited due to my heart problems and my husband's aftereffects of several small strokes.

emoticon Virginia,
Most of the problems are because of two reasons:
We act without thinking or we keep thinking without acting.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Life is good when we think its good.
Life is bad when we don't think.

emoticon Laugh as much when you breathe, and love as long as you live.

emoticon Laughter is always the best medicine unless.....
you have diarrhea.

emoticon Laugh until your belly hurts and then just a bit more.

emoticon Sometimes I laugh so hard, my tears run down my leg.

Thanks for your comments on my page. I am really looking forward to getting to spend time with my nephew, and taking him out to dinner! I am glad you got to be close to your grandson when he was in college. Stephen is just starting out in his career and relocating to a new city, it is a challenging and exciting time for him.
