I was successful but stressed

I had my most productive work in 1990. The most money, the most opportunity at age 65. It has taken me all that time to finally to get to that professional level. And the next year was very difficult because we were in India during the Gulf War, and India was not sympathetic with the United States' position during the Gulf War. It was a very tense time to be there. We moved back in June, I made two more trips to South Asia and carried a virus with me most of the time. So a lot of stuff just added up. I just had no reserves at all. In fact, one would reflect on how much my immune system had just given up along the way, which is why the breast cancer showed in the first place.
