one step at a time...

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine.

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine. It is a challenge finding the fine line between the right amount of activity and going beyond that - which often results in prolonged periods of immobility. This has impacted adversely on my ability to exercise, and my weight has crept up as a result.

I am now trying to eat more consciously and be more aware of portion control. Like many Spark Page members, I do love my food.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by and say hello.

Movement as often as possible.

Being mindful of portion control.

Move my body as much as I can within limits.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
I love animals, and lost my beloved cat Coco aged 17, in December 2009.

Inspirational Quote:

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
~Tony Robbins

Hi Nattacia, Thanks for your comment on Mother Nature. We didn't have any flooding in our neighborhood here in Z-hills, as we call it for short. Our old mobile home park in Tampa had about 3 or 4 ft. in some areas. We are so happy we are out of there. emoticon
