“Whatever you are doing, keep it up!” Those were the words of my rheumatologist 20+ 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!”

I replied, ‘I will not prepare for any such thing! So, in keeping with the 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 grim prophecy did not come to pass, as the second doctor said. I never made plans for anything but happiness and a fulfilled life—and that is what has come to pass!

My plan for continued success is joining the spark team 5% challenge, therefore, I can be in good company with a group of spark members who are making plans for change and optimum health!

My Goals:
Fall of 2020--Joined the 5% Challenge team and plan to add to my current commitment--to good health and fitness. Will update as things progress. Looking forward!

Personal Information:
I am married happily for 42 years and we live in Eugene, Oregon
2020 has been a challenging year--no question about it. But through the turmoil, I am proud to say i added Author to my lifes' accomplishments--and my memoir, "It Happened at Dawn" was published in January of 2020. I am currently writing my second book.


I love writing and graduated from the Institute of Children's Literature in Reading, Connecticut.



Other Information:
If you haven't noticed, I love writing fun and inspiring blogs on spark people--lol.
And believe it or not, I enjoy being a senior citizen and love the silver lining that I have found after retirement.
Retirement actually is not in my vocabulary as I am just as busy as when I was still working! Wouldn't change it for the world!
