Funklab, you certainly gave me a different slant on this, thank you.

I am just irritated that the DMV saw fit to take my driving privileges away. Not that I drive very often, but that I can't when and if I need to. And as a BTW, I do not drink alcohol, never did "recreational drugs" and with NO driving offenses on my record the DMV have seen fit to remove those privileges.

Now thanks to a surgery have been able to stop using the pain killer Rx drugs. I honestly think if I ever get back to the pain I had for so many years, and that enforced my need to retire, I would have put the shotgun to my head and put a stop to it. But simply one surgery has "not eliminated" all that pain, but that surgery did make what pain I have left fairly bearable.
