Let's make this the best APRIL ever. This is my 11th Sparkversary, so thanks to finally finding a doctor who put me on Metformin, Armour Thyroid, and Bydureon, I've been able to lose weight, with about 20# to go. I fell and broke my femur right below my hip joint in June '17, so I have a titanium rod with screws My bone scan showed I have no osteoporosis. The doctor tells me my bone has healed thanks to my Ultra-Sound stimulator, but I still have problems because of the pins, but I'm dealing with that. . I'm continuing to exercise daily.

You may be old, sick or very old and decrepit have a kind of emaciated body but if you practice, the perfection of yoga is certainly possible Hatha Yoga Pradipika

    Hi! Thanks so much for your comment on my SparkPage. I added you as a friend, please feel free to do the same.

    I know things a few decades back were very hard and expectations and demands towards women were horrible, but it's also true that I owe all the rights I have now to all the feminist fighters that came before me. It's them I have to thank that I was able to go to college and have a masters degree, it's them I have to thank that I speak 3 languages, it's them I have to thank that I can choose to be childfree and no one can make me have a child if I don't want to (they try and it's still a very frowned upon decision but I am free to make it). And now, my responsibility is to fight for all the rights we still don't have, to help other women find feminism and the sorority that comes with it. The girl friends, the support, the empowerment, the strength....

    I hope you know that it's never too late to start fighting for yourself and for your sisters and the more you fight, the stronger you become. I hope you find all this, and if you want a friend, just let me know.
    I send you a big hug.
