I live with my two sons and husband in the high desert near Victorville, CA.  I am 50 years old and feel like I'm going on 80 too many days.  A head-on collision years back left my low back (L5-S1) and neck (C3 and 4) pretty tentatively operational; most days my pain level is a regular 4 or 5 and it gets to an 8 or 9 a few times a week, rendering me useless, my un-favorite place to be.  I sleep very little (vampire hours, with 11:00 pm my "groove" hour, where I start to pick up speed) and this isn't a good thing from my husband's perspective.  I collect things; antiques, collectibles and anything old and pretty.  Sometimes it is a profitable endeavor but most of the time it's just "job security," trying to get and keep it organized in a (too small) garage.  I long to move back "to the dirt," as cement and asphalt aren't my comfort zone.  Not moving again until I can buy my little piece of Heaven somewhere not in the middle of the city.  I spend time with friends and enjoy my family and our pets, music and adventures in the cyber world (mostly Spin Bingo).  I found this site due to an interest in smoking cessation and am curious what others are finding most successful with regard to quitting.  I am not fond of most proponents of the AMA, respect chiropractic and holistic approaches to health and healing and just hope to find a method of state regulation that is affordable and works for more than a minute, mostly with regard to the mental part of health maintainence.  I will read anything psycho-spiritual and love anything promoting recovery and peace of heart and mind.  I'm friendly and am fascinated by anyone who will let me in on their truths and what works for them in this life - which I hear is so hard for reasons we will one day understand.
