Default Best get to know one another

Hello Stella,

Looks like we are here alone so should get to know each other so here goes. I am a 53 year old Married man with 5 daughters and that is a lucky thing for me.

Here is my story I worked as an Aircraft Services Instructor with Air Canada and oddly enough St. John's was where my tripping began to be more noticeable to me. (I was doing a safety audit at the airport) My progression seems to be quite slow to me. The slow progression I attribute to serendipidy. I did not drink for 15 years but decided there would not be much harm in it even though most people say to avoid alchohal. I also started to smoke (not tobacco) and this seems to allow me to feel like eating once a day at least. (only do it at night same as beer) I have also been diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic so must have protien with my beer I am asthmatic with genetic high chloresteral and blood pressure. Having said all that, I am still in pretty good shape when we gather at the clinic. I have my family here with the exceptions of one daughter in Denver and one in a Fransciscan convent in Illinois. They support me and care for me. I am a Catholic however being Irish it is sort of on my own terms. That is me. How about you?
