They also told me I have had Diabetes for a while too. Thats been hard to deal with. The combo of Heart disease and Diabetes killed my sister two years ago, and it devasted me. But now that I have it, it explained my dramatic weight loss as well as a noticible change in my vision. I can still see well enuf to scoot! Add to that another bout with Depression and I was no longer the man known as Marbles anymore. I look different, I feel different and life is very impotant to me now. I walk up to people tha have known me for 25 years and they dont recognize me!
I have focused on my new house (Rancho De Angelo) and have started a surf band. I play Guitar and Drums and write original tunes... http://www.strangebutsurf.com
I still have my Velocifero and it still runs, but I believe dirty gas/and or tank is prevnting it from really going. I traded my Scarabeo in on a Burgman Type S. But my Stella is still my favorite.
I tried to fit back in at the BBS, but found that It really didnt compare to other forums like burgmanusa.com and others. The childishness never appealed to me, even if I was part of it, usually by mistake, sometimes by design. I love scootering, it has really helped me in my recovery, both phycically and mentally.
