Re: Water Therapy

hi courtneyrae,
welcome to the boards. i did aquatic therapy for a bit over 2 years. did wonders for me. like you walking was an issue. the water, ah, what heaven. in water i could do so much that i could not do then on land. now i hike, kayak, garden and i can even run a bit. my walk is my own again. before i walked like frankenstein, ya know? thanks to water and determination my walk is smooth, my gait healthy. go for it. you will love it.
by the way when i started my swimsuit was a size 18. i now wear a size 7 suit. determination. being sick was enough to incorporate. being overweight i could do something about. i went from 198 to my weight today at 124.
sure it was hard. life is hard. it is also so fun. so exciting. tomorrows are magic. more magic when you have fibro. you never know when the magic will happen and you get a few days of being a "normal", giggle.
peace,
