    I was a mental health nurse for 20+ yrs. I had to take medical retirement in 2008 due to having 5 heart attacks and blocked arteries in my legs that I had major surgery for. Have recently been diagnosed with c.o.p.d .I am divorced but get lots of help from my 2 children aged 40 & 30 and have an adorable 3 half year old granddaughter who makes the struggle of everyday life worth living
