Hi ya'll

  1. Hey ya'll,

    yuck have to kick that habbit, just got back from living in texas! I was down there for 5yrs. I have been working in LTC for most of 15yrs. The last yr I was working for Vitas Hospice. I was dx with lung ca in oct of 04 had surgery and lost my job for not being able to work, since i was an employee for less than a yr. Been kinda drifting ever since I came back to IL for a few months and worked in a NH and found it difficult. Having Lung ca myself made hospice stressful too. Went back to TX 4 months ago and tried to get into Assisted living with a friend who was opening a new facility well it didnt go well and ended up returning to IL so, I am here to stay. Wish I could find a nitch. Well nuff rambling not to good at my intro but would like to say HI to all.

    All beings tremble before violence.
    All fear death.
    All love life.

    See yourself in others.
    Then whom can you hurt?
    What harm can you do?

    He who seeks happiness
    By hurtin those who seek happiness
    Will never find happiness.

    For your brother is like you.
    He wants to be happy.
    Never harm him
    And when you leave this life
    You too will find happiness.
