I donít have an alcoholic ex-husband whoís driverís license has just been reinstated. Iím not a single mother whose teenagers are careening through life. I donít have a husband whoís been disabled for twenty years. I havenít lost my house and possessions to a 500 year flood. I am not unemployed, donít have breast cancer. I have a loving almost-fiance, two demented cats, an unhappy back that may curtail certain future activities, and a job that pays the bills but is ultimately frustrating, and a house thatís too small and needs some infrastructure upgrades. My life isnít all that bad.
