Joel was living the American dream. Four kids, two story house, a lovely wife and a skyrocketing career to partner in one of the city’s most preeminent firms. So in some strange way he saw this day coming. It had all been too good, too great. It had to end somehow. This might as well be it. The warm numbness crept up his leg as he swung it like a six-year-old over the edge of the now- towering exam table. The doctor landed two, three pert knocks across the tendon and grimaced reflexively as he worked. Joel knew what it all meant, even before the doctor straightened to deliver the news. It was neurologic. It was progressive. And, yes. It was fatal.
Don’t do that it would embarras him and make him resentful of you. They sell a water proof sheet to protect the mattress. Show him how to use the washing machine. When he gets up he can toss the wet sheets and blankets in the washer. If he goes to school you can toss them in dryer or he can when he gets home. When his laundry is done he can make his bed. When he gets good at it, you may even make it his choir to do the family laundry. A win win for you.
On the island of Isla Mujeres neat Cancun I was sitting at a beach bar when a women walked by topless with just the smallest red bikini bottom on. She weighed about 300 pounds. I then thought about a man I had seen walking on Daytona beach 10 years earlier wearing a red Speedo and weighing about 300 pounds. I told her adjust it,she did,she unbuckled my pants pulled pants underwear down while I was driving she proceeds to do oral on me while I drive after i was relieved.she left no mess she put her head back on my lap and slept withme driving

I once handled cases like these, and believe me, I’ve seen the most impossible attempts. Once of them involved a man, made up to look like a woman wearing a gown. Behind her skirt, guards found cans and cans of cookies he had managed to pin between his legs, slow-walking towards the door. If that was impossible, how he got to the door was impossibler. As often as your parents ask your too!! What do mean by irresponsible of parents? Aren’t they providing a food and shelter and everything in between?
Fulfillment had been the name of the game until now, while actual happiness a four letter word. His whole life he was just about, almost, so close, nearly there, and now? A year. Maybe two. And that time would just roll by, in wheelchairs, on machines. He hopped down, stood up, and stepped off… the treadmill. A burning relief flooded over him. Divorce papers in hand, he had a condo on the beach a week later. A week after that, his resignation. And after that, freedom. For as long as it would hold.
