“Whatever you are doing, keep it up!” Those were the words of my rheumatologist 30+ years ago after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder called ‘ankylosing spondylitis.’ X-rays revealed my spine to be 100% fused, with pain and stiffness.

I defied the doomsday diagnoses given by an orthopedist 35 years ago, “Be prepared to be disabled and in a wheelchair by the time you are in your forties!”

To that I replied, ‘NO I won't! So, in keeping with my rheumatologist’, I did what he recommended. I stayed mobile and kept moving! I am now 74 and worked full time, in very physically demanding job—and retired in my 70th year.

The awful prophecy did not come to pass, as the Dr. Grim said. I never made plans for anything but happiness and a fulfilled life—and that is what has come to pass!

I love retirement, except I found a new career which is writing! I have added Author to my nursing career. More below.

    "One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
    We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
    That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
    We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
    We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
    And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
    For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
    Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"
    -Geneen Roth

    Hi Jan !

    It helps me a lot to be part of a team that is active. Some juicers in this team juice alone, and some incorporate food as well. I feasted on juice alone for 13 days and am now incorporating food for a few days. I hope to began juicing alone soon after some family events pass. What is your plan?
