Been a while

Good evening everyone.... It's been a while. Got an email that looked to be randomly generated asking me what's going on. So let's get into it:

If you remember I was an Army Paratrooper and was medically retired at 17 years. I developed standard gulf war syndrome type problems, i.e. fibromyalga, cluster headaches etc. Also developed bursitis in my knee, (like I'm an 80 year old woman who left the window open at night).

I got married, to a girl who was in the army. She got out and we went to fort Campbell, ky. We then decided to have two children. A boy, joey and a girl, Evelyn.

Children... They wear you out and they are out to try and just suck all the little life out of you that is left. They are demanding and cause all kinds of drama and trouble.... I wouldn't trade them for the world. However mundane my life has become, (I wear sweater vests and eat baked chicken) it is amazing with those little monsters.

I am working as a mortgage banker, (so if you need a home loan...) And walk with a limp all day. Basically I completely sold out and am working on my B.A. in English and plan on applying to med school once done. If that doesn't work, then I plan on selling out completely and going to law school. My dream is to have an awesome commercial on during Maury, currently my slogan I'm working on is, "just because you did it, doesn't mean you're guilty".

However broken my body is I'm still training to do an iron Man triathlon. Hopefully next year. At least goal is to complete one. We will see.

There's my update. Thanks to all of you for your support years ago. I still randomly creep around but I don't writ anymore.

Take care everyone.

So very good to hear from you, Jay. It wasn't a random email... I'm trying to reach out to my PoetryPages family to maintain and re-create contact.

Thank you for your response!

Your post left me smiling, with a few chuckles.

Sounds like, despite the traumas, life is rich. :cheers:

And Wow! on the Triatholon. Good success with it!

Thanks for the update!
