    Thanks for the welcome!
    I'm at the 67th Level in age, and married to a wonderfully supportive wife!
    She often forgets about my Ataxia, in a good way. I suffered a heat stroke while running 8 years ago which resulted in non-degenerative Ataxia. Enjoy writing poetry, reading, learning and taking care of my wife.
    A motto I learned to live by: "If you  want a helping hand, look at the end of your arm!"
    But Be Humble! In July, I was traveling backwards as usual (Stronger legs than arms), and someone said "Can I push your wheelchair?" I responded "Of course not! I do this all the time!" I raced up a hill to keep up with a group I was with, didn't notice the sidewalk turned 90 degrees and plunged down a steep incline 25 feet and was stopped by a concrete structure. There was blood everywhere and a broken wrist! Lesson: Pride comes before a fall!
    All the Best,
    There's no future in time travel!

    Great to read more about you @chaim613, but not about your latest accident!
    I also enjoy reading; haven't written poetry for years, but still enjoy both reading & poetry. What sort of books do you like?

    A Poem about my heat stroke:

    Stroke Deliverance

    When discombobulated, Hit the Restart Button,

    Restart...Happened 6 July 2011,

    Now the 7th Milestone,

    Dr. Cooper rescued my life before we were to Daven,

    Unconscious 5 hours, 105* F., was able to say "I was Yidden",

    Asked "Did I recognize anyone?",

    "Yes, Barbara! My wife Lovin'!",

    "Teshukos", God has No needs but Desires to Overflow for Man,

    As does Barbara! Who spent Day & Night at Mt. Pleasant,

    Who'd have expected? An Earthquake! What's It All Portend?,

    Also Massei we read, the 42 Journeys, this was surely One,

    7, "Leave Well 'Nuff Alone!", Shabbos, 1,000 Mosiach yrs., B"H "Stroke's End",

    Thank you Dr. Cooper, Barbara, Rav Shuch, I'm to be still Kickin'!!!
