This is my post # 90,000! [View all]

It took almost 18 years for me to get to this point. (Member since: Tue Nov 9, 2004, 05:03 PM)

It has been a lot of fun. There have been a few surgeries that slowed me down. Three shoulder and two hand.

Speaking of health, I continue to use trazadone for my Frontotemporal Degeneration. In December of 2013 I was told I have FTD and probably had two years of quality life left. FTD is the most common form of dementia for people under age 60. I'll be 66 in January. Each FTD patient time line is different. I'm one of the fortunate ones.

I'm most proud of three things. I started the Labor Group that was later named after me. I'm not as active there since I retired. Raising over 2.4 million dollars for President Biden is another source of pride. I continue to be a host on the DU.

Because of my FTD, odds are I won't be here 18 years from now. That doesn't mean I won't try. I've made a few mistakes here because of my FTD. I'm Sorry.

The DU is the first thing I do in the morning after I take the dogs out. It is usually about the last thing I do at night.

I love this place and it shows.
