About Me

Am 62 years old. Ugh I'm getting old!  Enjoy especially theraputic horseback riding.  I am a diabetic with a neurological disorder similar to MS.  Been disabled since 1982.  Diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 1993.   Been under a lot of stress. Will keep trying, to lose weight, though.     I have 2 birds that live with me. 1 is a cockatiel named Hot Shot who is 21 years old.  I raised him from the time he was 10 days old.  He is in good health.  He loves to talk on the telephone.  He's liable to say "give me a cookie".  For a snack I do give him honey grahams, he loves those, also I use them if my sugar runs low at bedtime.  The other one is a spice Finch named Looking Glass.  He lost his mate a many years ago, was severely depressed, I thougt I was going to lose him too.  I went to the store and got him 2 mirrors so now he thinks he has another bird in there with him.  One is placed on the perch near his favorite spot, the other is placed by his food cup.  He's  9 years old and recovered immediately.    I showed a beautiful grey Paso Fino.  I still ride on a bareback pad.  Update, I've been suffering with leg cramps at night for over 17 years.  I had an EMG done and it explained the leg cramps. NowI use tonic water with quinnine in it, so far it's working well.   Never married.  Oh well, it's probably best for me. Mom used to say to me "You're as stubborn as a jackass." LOL. I think she's right!  LOL ROFL My favorite lifestyle is country life. I'm learning to play the guitar &read music. Have been doing a lot of physical therapy, too.

it sounds like you really keep busy. I love horses myself, had 7 show horses (paint, quarter-and palos. But that's been many-many years ago. I'm back at my parents house cause they need someone to help them. So my place sits idle. I'm a field tech for a cable company, I love it. I love meeting different people . and working outside . And its a pain to get old.

Wow - How nice to hear from you.  How have you been feeling?  Have you had an opportunity to ride lately?  I'm doing okay, had a rough summer with my son, he is doing good now.  Has a neurological disorder which we're working with his Neurologist with.  Other than that life has been good - no complaints.  Write back when you have a chance, look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Kathy,

I'm sneaking a moment from work here to write.  That is so neat that you're riding.  I know from my childhood and having grown up around horses that each has their own personality.  And it's funny how they tune into our feelings.  I had this one particular pony when I was growing up, and if I was in a bad mood, he'd be ready to pick a fight with me!  Just to show me that I should lighten up.  Cantankerous little turd that he was.......

Hey Kathy,

Wow it has been awhile!  Glad to hear you were able to ride.  That's great about the Hoyer Lift.  Does it allow for more people to ride?  You'd think it would make things easier for all concerned!  Happy to hear about any updates.  Take care and soon you'll be able to get over the fatigue!

Hello There..

Nice to hear from you, it sure has been a long time since we've written to each other.  Sorry to hear that you're not feeling so well, hope you feel better as each day goes by.  That is great that you had the opportunity to ride I'm sure you were super excited!!  :)    My son is doing much better, he is still going to Physical Therapy twice a week, he does however have an neurological issue with his right leg/foot that we are working with a Neurologist.  He is still very tired and weak but is back to school; they've made some accommodations for him which was so nice of them, they've been just great!  Other than that the family is all good.  Going to take my granddaughter to dance now so we'll talk again soon.

Hi Kathy,

Nice to hear from you.  I knew something was going on with you but I wasn't sure what.  I'm sorry to hear about all your medical issues your going through right now.  I'm glad to here that your Doctors are responding appropriately and trying to get to the bottom of it all.  I take Lyrica and find it most helpful.  I sure hope you feel better and I'll say some prayers for you and your also in my thoughts!  TALK SOON!

Hi:

I see you're a horse person.  My cousins are horse people.  They live in New Mexico.  I'm not really into horses kind of because I'm afraid of them.  They are so much bigger than I am.  I am 4'11".  I won't say how much I weigh.  The scales don't measure that high.  Anyway, I've got to get stuff out of the washer into the dryer and put another load into the washer, so I'm kind of busy.  I just wanted to say hi.

AWWW thank you for the lovely comment!!!  Pinkers is my Mother Hen... I have to make sure she stays well so she can keep me in pecking order.. lol  She is such a kind woman.  I would LOVE to live close enough to help any time she needed me.  She'd probably shoo me away for being "too" Motherly.  LOL 

Again, thank you so much for the kind words.

Hello Kathy...

Not as tired today but am a bundle of nerves for some reason.  Tonight is the Rehearsal Dinner, just bought a blouse to wear.  My granddaughter is bouncing off the walls with excitement, she's driving my daughter crazy today.  I'll let you know how the wedding goes.  Have a great day.  Talk Soon!
