Having RA since age 6.5, and years of hospital stays and surgeries (38 operations and counting) have kept me on a weight loss roller coaster my entire adult life. I have five artificial joints, but love to work out, the higher intensity the better. I have three forms of arthritis destroying my body, but fight to keep moving every body part they damage. That is all that stands between me and a wheelchair. My favorite fitness classes are Boxercise, Step & Zumba! My trusty elliptical keeps me moving on the days I can't get out. Winters are long and hard here and even more challenging to keep moving.
I can only type with one finger so request you do not add me as friend as its all I can do to keep up with the great friends I already have!! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read this!

Linda thank you for all the support and the love you give with your comments. I look forward to your blogs and hearing from you all the time. I have my fingers crossed that your bad air situation will freshen up quickly. :)

I'm on board with Watermellen. I know it takes effort and potentially knocking some heads together but we're here to give you whatever support we can to help you get through it.


Thinking of you this morning my friend. :)

Please consider contacting the local health unit, then: and/or the local community legal clinic. I'm not sure what Sask city you're in: Regina? Saskatoon?

You don't have to fight this battle yourself -- I have to believe that there are lots of people who care about this situation and lots more who will benefit by you drawing attention to it.

And: what a great news story it would be as well.

emoticon Thanks for your input about the Foam Roller. I did talk to the Trainer a little about it today. She said much the same thing you did, so I guess I will keep trying to use it at least a little bit and on muscles that it doesn't seem to hurt more than it helps.
