gosh has it really been that long since i checked in, logged in, weighed myself or tracked anything yes.. i guess so. I was diagnosed with graves disease a couple of years ago. at the time i couldn't understand why i was losing weight and yet to me, i seemed weaker. I could barely walk a block without getting out of breath. one step at time right. so i was put on meds that blocked all that thyroid stuff and of course i gained weight. then i went in remission, but my heart rate is still pretty high. they just keep telling me to walk more. but honestly with my bunion the way it is, its pretty hard to walk, and i developed buristus in my hips, incontinence (from the muscle weakness) in both my bladder and bowels. and still they say to walk. now my stomach hurts all the time. and they added IBS to my list of crap i have. I 'm not sure that is what it is. plus i developed internal hemeroids, and i sware it feels like my bladder is in my vagina or something is.

'sigh. I just needed to type it all up and get it out, so i can try to let the worry go. I am broken at 54, and i hope it is not to late to fix me.

    Sorry for all the body challenges. Ugh...We do what we can. It helps me to vent too.

    I have pretty severe arthritis in one knee, but at age 55 I think I'm still too young for a replacement. My doctor suggested swimming (walking being a little out of the question). At first I could only do a few laps at a time but now I am swimming up to two miles in a workout. When I'm out of the water I still have the knee pain (though it is less), but in the water I use it a lot and it never hurts. Swimming can be a great exercise when walking is too painful.
