I’m a retired State worker. I was lucky enough to have a job counseling fellow co-workers about problems that were interfering with their work and lives. I’ve been retired for many years now — I left when diagnosed with a “terminal” illness that keeps dragging on, thank heavens. 🙃 I love to play piano and write poetry and stuff. I have good friends and close family, but no spouse or kiddies. I had 3 wonderful cats and can’t deal with their dying anymore. I look forward to reading many of your blogs, both those of people I have things in common with and those whose lives are very different from mine.
