Re: Unable to walk much or stand for long

The less you walk/stand the harder it will be!! Tough as it sounds it's a fact. Our muscles begin to atrophy (SP?) after a very short period of non usage - therefore if you don't use it you lose it! I've learnt that DESPITE the pain I HAVE to keep my body moving. we are having the most horrendous summer in living memory in the UK - we're all excited that tomorrow it's going to be 18 degrees and only rain for 2 hours! I literally feel like the tin man/woman - the awful weather is making me seize up day by day and I have to force myself to walk/gently exercise other wise I'm sure I would be a in a wheel chair by the year end. There's a saying................IF YOU CAN'T THEN YOU MUST. And you must walk/exercise or that is the beginning of the end..................x
