Now that the major shock of being retired is getting settled in my head and body, a lot seems different. I have more aches and pains - at least that I feel now that I'm not completely sedated 10 hours out of every day - but I'm workin' it out and it's getting better. I can't say my anxiety is completely gone, nor have I gotten rid of the Xanax completely, but it's a whole lot better and that's more than a girl can ask for.
I'd say I'm doin' pretty A-OK, all things considered. I think I might get out my kite flyin' stuff this afternoon.
And I am blessed.
