Congratulations! Do you have a "handicap" sticker? (you probably do---just thought I'd ask). You definitely deserve to splurge after all you've been through. Is your husband still able to drive? I have handicap plates. My husband gave up driving about 3 or 4 years ago and surrendered his ...

I come a little late to this conversation, but I wanted to tell you, firemonkey, that I have always liked you and read your posts with interest (except during those intervals when I wasn't participating here at all). You have always struck me as a kind person who hurts no one, which is far more than...

Make/model? Car ppl are always curious. And whether new or old, $500, $5,000, or $50,000 - congrats! New to you cars are always something to celebrate. Have a piece of cake or something. 8) My brothers ex-MIL needed a newer vehicle that could accommodate her scooter she sometimes uses due to MS. Th...

Very nice. What colour is it? Red, and I had to pay extra for it. I said to the salesman (a nice man I have dealt with before), "This is the last car I will ever buy*, and it might as well be RED!" * I'm in my late 60s. I tend to keep a car a long time... by the time this one is used up, ...

Monitor your own internal state. Do NOT let them force you to work right through your breaks or lunch. You need those times for yourself.

To some extend, diagnoses seem somewhat arbitrary between different psychologists. Is it possible for one shrink to say, "I think you have PTSD," and another to say, "I think you have depression." for example ? I ask, because I'm seeing a shrink, hoping to get my foot in the doo...

That's great about the apartment. I'm glad you have something (a) affordable in (b) a town you know and like.

I will pleased when you never have to complain about this old-lady neighbor of yours again.

I needed a new car because I only had a compact, and the electric scooter I use due to a disability was very hard to lift into the trunk. I used to do it, but then my husband began lifting it in. However, he has a painful disk condition in his back and shouldn't be lifting anything heavy. So our sol...

...ever since I was 13 (when it happened) Bobby Kennedy's death has had one little loose end - that I am still waiting for someone to tie up. And that is Sirhan's supposed motivation to kill him. That motivation was that...on one occasion RFK showed support for Israel by helping legislate aid -givi...

Your earlier rejection of him - because he was on the rebound and you were too busy - makes it extremely unlikely he will try again. He's probably still smarting, from being rejected before.

It's worth mentioning that Stanford is a top, selective, elite university, sometimes called the Harvard of the West. Graduates from four-year programs there, or even more so, graduates from masters and doctorate level programs, are going to be very very smart, much smarter than the average autistic ...

A guy I used to carpool with murdered the old lady who rented him a room in her house. It was bloody, he beat in her head I believe. Well, he'll die in prison. The irony is his dad used to be a prison guard! We have to remember that overall, these events are rare, but news sources look for the unusu...

Vision is involved in balance, so closing your eyes might be the wrong thing to do. For those times when you elevate the foot/feet, do something with eyes open such as watching TV or reading. Alternatively, you can elevate the foot lying in bed. If you start to feel like you're falling, let yourself...
