I'm still standing (better than I ever did)


Recommended Posts

Helllooooo. :)

Just a brief visit (I think, at least that's the plan for now).

How is everyone??? 

I am well, truly well. For about 3 years now. :) No episodes, no symptoms!

Faithfully taking my meds - no ways am I going to risk destroying my stability and good life. Swallowing a few pills 3 times a day is easy-peasy when it means I can have my life in return.

I packed up and sold my house, car and most worldly possessions and moved my life in South Africa back to my home country, Denmark. I've been away 43 years. I absolutely love it here. Plus I brought my cat with me and she now miaows in Danish. ;) 

Let me hear your news?

Thank you SweetSue and OnlyHuman! How are you both doing?

I'm having to retake my driver's test, both theory and practical, as Denmark does not recognise my South African licence. It's dreadful! How can they expect one to do this at 54?? :o Plus I'm having to learn to drive on the WRONG side of the road, with the controls on the WRONG side of me. I'm a nervous wreck and have to keep reminding myself that I did this before and WILL eventually be able to do it again.

I did! I did!

Not without a lot of worrying myself silly, but in the end, I passed. And then went a bought myself a dress, to  celebrate.

I have bought an old car (it has a tape deck!) and can only take the practical test in August, so I can practise a lot more. More confident now.


How are you doing, Finding?
