I talked to this great woman on the phone this morning, for a half an hour. She was from my local clinic and was asking questions that are part of my yearly Medicare checkup.

She was diving deep, with questions like have I ever considered harming myself or others. I said I love life, and others. She asked if I was depressed, I told her to read my blog.

She asked how I slept, I told her I drink myself to sleep. There were more probing questions and I just laid myself out on the slab. and answered them all.

I've been sitting around with Daniel as he bemoans his heart condition. He could drop dead any minute, and I would miss him!

But most of all, I would miss life...
