After almost 27 years doing the living history and reenacting, I am faced with the decision that it is time to give it up. Not because gas is four times more expensive than when I started, and I am at the extreme southwest corner of the peninsula, which makes it expensive to travel anywhere. And not because I have to work most weekends, because that is what I have been doing for 12 years.
Simply, I'm dying. It's a slow, painful death. It might take years to kill me off, but I am not getting around very well. The complications of diabetes have hit me hard this past week. I am not able to walk any great distance and do not know how I will be in the future.
I have really enjoyed all the years with my friends and would not have wanted any different. There are two events that I hope to attend in the next eight months, but I am not making any other plans.
I'm so sorry to hear that! I enjoy your posts about the various events, & I have learned a lot from you that has helped me with my paintings.I know what it is like when it is hard to get around(I had Lyme disease) I hope you will be on an upswing soon-
