Unless you include "sick over the price of fuel", I'd have to say no.

Thankfully we are healthy and our only complaint is not enough TIME to travel.

Temporarily, I hope, and it coincides with the off-season. Had an angioplasty op Dec 15th with 4 stents installed. I hope cardiac rehab will have me back up to speed before next season.

Good luck to you guys, PyrateSilly. Do what's best for you and tell the others to bugger off!

Had an epidural in `09 for sciatica and it worked great. Back started acting up a few months ago and either the doctor did it different or it didn't work. I have good days and bad days. Seems if I keep moving it loosens up. I'm finding it take a lot longer to recover from any ailments.

We are temporarily in CA and as soon as we get back to MI we are gonna fix a few things that people broke that were staying at the house and we will then sell it. Since we bought it at the bottom of the market we should be able to at least sell it for a little more than what we bought it at. But who knows, only when we sell it will we know. My side of family all think we are doing what is right for us. Thom's side, well, some are sorta OK with it. His sister just cannot understand why he does not want the house with a white picket fence, the 2.5 kids, the dog etc.
We have done the route of doing for others and it's time for us to do for us.
Go for it! I've always heard that at the end of life people have far more regrets about things they didn't do than things they did do! Good luck & God bless!

I had severe sciatic nerve pain from my back all the way down into my left heel. On the recommendation of a collegue who had had the same problem, I took treatments from an accupuncturist. After about 12 treatments, I have been pain free for over 10 years. He has also been very helpful in relieving my wife's pain from fibromyalgia. I might mention that she is one of the "I don't do needles" poeple. Getting her to see him was a bit of a trick the first time, but she's had no problems going back.

We were getting the MH ready to take off south for the winter in Oct. Had some electrical problems and finally got on top of it. Then DW started feeling bad and wound up having a gall bladder attack. Several weeks later surgery. I almost lost her in 2001 and since then she lives with copd. We looked after aging parents and other relatives for years until they were gone. After the DW was sick the company I worked for shut down so we downsized and I retired at 60. We have done some traveling and have enjoyed some great trips incl. 2 winters in AZ. Looks as if we are grounded this winter because now I am undergoing a bunch of testing. Never give up, we will be back out there soon!

I have had 5 nerve blocks with some relief. Have used a tens unit that gives help. Alphawave not to much help. You just learn to do things on good days
