You can call me movin_on. I am diagnosed with Parkinson's.
For those of you who may not be familiar with this term, a Bucket List is a list of things that one has not done before but wants to do before dying.
I have been doing a lot of thinking, and although I do not think I am coming near the end of my life, I have came to the realization that I have let many years pass by due to my depression, pain, and symptoms / limits. Yes my physical limits and symptoms are horrible, but I think it has been the depression that has limited me much more and the depression stems from those symptoms and pain, but ultimately it is depression.
I feel if I just get my depression taken care of, I can do so much more, so I am going to work on this.
But... anyways... this comes to me discussing a Bucket List. I do not have one at this time, but I have done some soul searching and thinking about activities and things I want to do and see before the day comes! I do not want to let more time pass by.
I would love to hear from you!
What is on your bucket list? Have you done anything yet that is on it?
Has your condition affected your perspective of the present and future?

I want to feel comfortable inside.

I am trying to overcome Bipolar depression and anxiety, which hold me back now, more than ever before. I spent most my life in manic states, that helped me succeed at work, career and college, but destroyed my social life and my decisions with terrible men.
My bucket list was created early on as goals and aspirations. College was one. I wanted to achieve a PhD from age 14. I made it to psychiatric nurse and a BA degree. Having Crohns set me back constantly, always in hospital, having to stop and start school often. My bucket list consisted of travel, but I haven't had money to do that. Living in S CA was expensive and caring for my kids was expensive as single mom.
My music career didn't happen. I was in a band early on, but back then, not like today with social media. My horse career, also started but was stopped by family. I was trying for pre-Olympic riding events but I was too young and family was fearful. MY last goal, to make it a writing. My first submit, I was published. Then life happened and I stopped submitting, not writing. Now my career is over, due to leg amputation, and COVID, so writing is my only outlet. I'm determined 100% to get published again, get an agent and write on. My goal is to be on Best Writers List in different genres, NY Times and Los Angeles Times bestselling list before I die. My biggest issue is laziness, anxiety and depression keep me from getting my works out there, not written. I procrastinate and then miss deadlines. Working on this daily. Right now, I'm supposed to be writing on computer.
I knOW with hard work determination and just do it, I will be successful. I truly want to share with the world what I write, as I know my words can help many, so my nursing career is over, but I will still be helping others.
