: Thanks everyone for the info. I have started the process, I'm hoping I get approval the first time, I guess everyone does. It was a tough decision to make, I am 49 and didnt want to admit to myself that it was time, but now the pressure is off, what a relief, my wife say's it made such a difference in my attitude. I was laid off from Boeing last July and the job interviews have not gone well, get a little nervous and the shaking goes into high gear! Again thanks for the info.
Good for you! It's interesting what has to happen to open our eyes. It may mean some downsizing in your life, but the less clutter, the less pressure. Dealing with PD is a full-time job all by itself. The stress taken out of your life will lengthen your life. Our neighbor was your age and slated to retire at age 50. He had a fatal massive heart attack 38 days before his 50th birthday, his retirement day. We are now his age, and we take each day as a gift. You can enjoy living in new ways now.
