Either the Zoloft is working, or my daily walks with VeggiGirl are brightening up my day.
Still have uncontrollable shakes, and the sprain is intermittent and echoing at my hips. I assume the pains in my hips are connected to some sort of compensatory body adjustment. Still, I am determined to keep at the exercise, and a walking cane is mandatory for any foray from the house.
It's almost comical to witness and discuss my MIL's walking problems. She claims she doesn't need a cane, but insists that the only problem is her balance. Well, duh. Same here.
VeggiGirl suggests I use a walker in the winter, but frankly, that seems a bit extreme. If the cane went out from under me, why wouldn't a walker do the same? It's time to recognize that icy roads and sidewalks are a bit more dangerous for a woman with osteopenia. My "sprained" finger still hurts, and hurts even more during exercise. And it's interesting to note the discomfort I feel during the back stretching routine.
Oh, well. I will do "as much as I can for as long as I can." It's always worked in the past.
