been busy as #

In case anyone is wondering why I have not been commenting this past week, I've been very busy helping my brother pack and move. I haven't done any exercise in the past 3 years since I had a stroke and OMG my body is out of shape. I'm lucky I haven't put on any weight, actually lost about 20 lbs because I have to walk everywhere I go since I can't see well enough to drive. But even the small amount of physical work I did really wiped me out and now that I know the pain in my hips and shoulders is arthritis, I'm even more concerned about trying to find some type of exercise I can do that I am both capable of and that doesn't hurt so much I want to cry. I can't even lay in bed without being in pain. The trouble is, the pain will only get worse over time. So I will be lucky if I am able to walk and write in another 10 years. Resting will only turn me into a boney bag of jello, so I think I am going to invest in an electronic muscle stimulator. I recall reading an interview with Christopher Reeve where he said he ad one and it got him in the best physical condition of his life even though he couldn't move a muscle of his own volition. I gotta do something...
