Biography of jJO CAREY

I AM OLDER THAN THE HILLS, WITH NO DREAMS LEFT TO CHASE. JUST WANTED TO TALK TO SOMEONE WHO FELT LIKE ME. I GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, ATTENDED SOME COLLEGE, I WORKED AS A REAL ESTATE BROKER UNTIL I LOST MY HEARING. I AM NOW COMPLETELY DEAF. I HAVE A COCHLEAR IMPLANT, DONE IN 1993 WITH SEVERAL UPDATES AND GET ALONG FINE WITH THIS AND READING LIPS. I AM SO GLAD THAT I FOUND THIS SITE, FOR THERE ARE THINGS I CANNOT DO. I HAVE HEP.C FROM BAD BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS IN THE EIGHTIES, BEFORE THEY TESTED FOR HEPATITIS. CONFIRMED 4 YRS AGO, BUT I AM DOING GREAT. SOMETIMES I GET DEPRESSED ABOUT MY LIMITATIONS BUT I CAN DO MOST THINGS. I READ A LOT, I CAN LISTEN TO MUSIC AGAIN AND TALK ON A CELL PHONE.
SCIENCE HAS COME A LONG WAY AND IT SEEMS I HAVE TOO. I THANK EACH AND EVERYONE FOR ANY COMMENTS TO MY POEMS. SOME WERE WRITTEN IN 1958 AND SOME NOW. SEE IF YOU CAN PICK THEM OUT. I HAVE TWIN DAUGHTERS, WILL BE 43 THIS YEAR AND 2 STEPSONS IN THEIR 40'S.
MARRIED 29 YRS THIS TIME TO A WONDERFUL MAN. HE IS WONDERFULLY ENCOURAGING. I HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO.
THANKS AGAIN. PUBLISHED IN THE INTERNATIONAL LIBRARY OF POETRY AND JMW PUBLISHING.KEEP WRITING, IT IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO GET RID OF PAST EMOTIONS AND MISTAKES. JO

I Lost A Friend

I lost a friend yesterday, its still so hard to believe
We went thru so much together and cared so much
And although she moved away and carried on her life
I still remember her as if it was yesterday

Double dating, exchanging clothes
Talking on the phone for hours
Funny how all the memories come flying back
And I still see her as she was then
