My Story:
Hi - I just wanted to get this exchange opened so that everyone that contributed to the previous active aging board would have a place to come.

I am a 57 year old married mother of two children a boy and a girl, and grandmother of two wonderful grandsons. I live outside of Washington DC. I work full time for a government contractor and my husband is retired from a grocery store and drives school bus for our county public school system.

We also have 5 cats and a dog and try to maintain two bird feeders out front in our yard. So needless to say we are busy with the animals.

I have type 2 diabetes which is controlled by Metformin. I am a stage IV colon cancer survivor - now going on 4 1/2 years. I am trying to loose some weight through diet and exercise.

I look forward to carrying on the friendships we created on the previous board and also to making lots of new friends.
