The future is an uncertain thing. I have tried and failed at planning it, guessing it, predicting it, expecting it, and influencing it. The problem is people; you are in constant relation with people and therefore your future is somewhat dependent on--not only your choices--but those of the people in your life (whether you choose for them to be their. They chose for them to be there. you choose for them to not be there. They choose for them to not be there). There is the problem of family; for as much as we long to make them happy and proud and follow every word of their advice to a T... we still have to do what we know is right in our hearts. We still have to--sometimes--make our own mistakes. Education and career and the individuals you encounter along that rout are ever shifting but that can make it worse. So many philosophies. So many ideals. So many competitors. So many colleuges. One can only hope on an unlikely whim that we will make it to the "place in life" that we fore-see and are working toward that whole time! Friends; the real true sacrificial exhuberant and challenging kind. Find those. Cherish them. Friends Should help you when you are at your absolute lowest--not be scared off and acknowledge that they've been there too--challenge and stretch your philosophies, expectations--and know it's ok if they're not 100% identical--and hold each others feelings to be their own--empathy. Then the most complicated of them all... Trust. Support. Betrayal. Heartbreak. and Love. The kind that truly tears you in half; whether you have it. are looking for it. are "lost without it". or have Too Much of it. I guess you just have to look at: at the end of the day... who's there? at the end of the day... whose arms can provide you the most comfort? at the end of the day... who can make you smile when you feel all hope is lost? at the end of the day... who steadfastly refuses not to let go of or break your heart? because at the end of the day... the future is still an uncertain thing

Hi all! This is for those of you that have or have had the same neurologist for 4 years or more. I have been with mine now since 2009. He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him. BUT.... I feel like my visits are not what they use to be. He...
I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
