    Years of recovery and pain is so exhausting and emotionally draining.

    A dear friend of mine is currently dealing with 5 lower disks that are damaged or deteriorating. Watching her moving around in excruciating pain is painful for me. How she copes, I don't know.  The only thing that keeps her upright is her strong core muscles she developed from belly dancing. She's 72 and still dances...even roped me into it. I love it! Gives a girl a chance to dress up in bright colours and gauzy things and get exercise while having fun.

      what a wonderful experience you are sharing with your friend. I am so impressed that she dances AND you dance with her! I send good vibes to you and your friend.

        why not have fun while doing it! There is a whole group of us seniors belly dancing and we even put on a show once a year. Our instructor is my friend.

          Walking outside here is too risky because of ticks. Walking on the nearby road would get me run down by a log truck. A treadmill is boring but I've had a lightbulb moment. I'm going to move a small t.v. and watch movies while I 'walk'.

            a tray, angled slightly, and set up a laptop or pad on it?
            Type and google while you walk.

            •  I have a thingy that fits over (0+ / 0-)

              the top to hold a book. I don't have anything other than a
              desktop in the way of electronics. That would be a good way to pass the time though.

                do get a pad. But reading is good, too.
