    Yes, but with some modifications for the disabled bits I have to modify my physical and mental dreams, but so far, so good. I was mad as hell for a few years. But also thankful that I had started my retirement accounts when I was 27 years old, so I would not have to eat alpo during early retirment. I had planned to only work a 9 to 5 job until age 45, cancer pushed it back to age 40 years old. So, I was well on my way to being a retired person, who could use my dream of writing books to the next level. I got to be a stay at home mom by default, but the five years I spent as as single mom to a teenage son was priceless. We are very close, much closer than dd with whom I worked 24/7 to provide for her expensive hobbies. Yes, I am doing what I want to do, so if staying in bed all day and eating nachos and bon bon's, knowing I have an income to pay all my bills and still save, then it worked out just as planned. It was scary with all the chemo and surgeries, but even though there are lots of bits missing, I still enjoy life.
