It's not so difficult as some have been programmed to believe.
In fact, I was told by my neighbor that I inspired him to also retire about 5 years into my own retirement and he saw me still enjoying my life and not having to wake up every morning M-F and commute to a job!
So, after he actually Retired, it was about a year later that his Wife Retired too. LMAO!
I completely understand about loving what one does, but Retirement doesn't have to stop one from doing what one loves.
It simply doesn't make it Mandatory to do to make a living.
If one does not have to be employed to meet one's Living Expenses month after month, then why be employed?
I answer to No One, but those who have authority over my Pension...and even that is by Choice!
Now to plan content to record in honor of the milestone.
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs Saga
15:32 Jul 18 2022 Times Read: 292
So The United States Department of Veterans Affairs has notified me that even though they are NOW covering Asthma as it relates to service-related injuries, they will continue to compensate me at the same amount by continuing to combine Sleep Apnea with Asthma.
So since the compensation for Sleep Apnea is an automatic 50% rating and it has never changed, that means I've NEVER been compensated for Asthma (specifically) which was previously diagnosed as a Restrictive Lung Disease, but later changed to a Reactive Lung condition (i.e. asthma).
Sleep apnea is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night's sleep, you might have sleep apnea. The main types of sleep apnea are: Obstructive sleep apnea, the more common form that occurs when throat muscles relax.
Asthma is a chronic (long-term) condition that affects the airways in the lungs. The airways are tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. If you have asthma, the airways can become inflamed and narrowed at times. This makes it harder for air to flow out of your airways when you breathe out.
Iraq and Afghan war vets exposed to toxic air struggle for breath — and a diagnosis
So even though this chronic Respiratory Illness from my military career feels as though it will try its best to one day send me to the Afterlife before a time that I will be ok leaving, I REFUSE to give up on my Weight Goal.
Food = Calories (Fuel) for the body.
The body must be in motion to a degree to burn the fuel placed in the meat suit or it will begin to create Fuel Storage areas all over the meat suit.
Chronic illness (such as difficulty breathing) may prevent the meat suit's ability to maintain enough motion to burn the fuel currently being deposited and that which is already stored around the meat suit.
1. Find a way to increase burning calories (fuel) with little to no 'negative' impact on the meat suit.
2. As stressors are reduced, the amount of food consumption required to cope with the BS and release 'Happy Chemicals' may also be reduced down to normal 'Portion Control' levels. No medical need for a Diet Program....yet, so deny nothing, but Portion Control EVERYTHING!
3. Purchase food that stimulates 'Happy Chemicals'.
4. Take meds & adhere to all safety precautions to care for your meat suit which includes staying Hydrated.
There's a creature in my closet
I can hear him rumblin' 'round
The demons screamin' in the distance
Creates such a humblin' sound
The monster that's outside my window
He's like family to me now
The things that people are afraid of
Never let me down
I embraced the storm, I found beauty in what was damaged
I'm not afraid of the boogieman
Instead, I look at him like he's a friend
There's not a monster out there in the world
That's scarier than the one that's within
