I am a tennis player that had "shingles" six and a half years ago and the rash damaged the nerves along the rib area on my right side. I have not been able to play tennis or get much exercise since. My medicine for the postherpetic neuralgia causes weight gain as well. I am looking forward to sharing knowledge with others in the Sparks community.

Member Since: 8/23/2008

Fitness Minutes: 132,693

My Goals:
To get back on the tennis courts, to walking 3 or 4 miles every other day
and eating the foods that are good for my body. I believe these are the answers to my body healing itself. Thus, getting off the medicine!!!

My Program:

Personal Information:
I am a retired public school counselor. I had to give up my job to care for my elderly mother after my father died. I had always told my parents that they raised and provided a good and loving childhood for me and when the time came for me to care for them I will gratefully do so. My mother required most of my time and therefore I was no longer able to have my job, walk 4 miles and play tennis 3 or 4 days a week as was my routine......thus over time the pounds arrived. My dear mother has now passed away.....I am diviorced and now on my own so this is a "new day" and I can take care of me now. I never realized what a job it was going to be to take care of me!!!! HELP! Sparkes friends....... please accept my "pay forward" thanks.

Other Information:

This is the beginning of a New Day.

God has given me this day to use as I will.

I can waste it or grow in its light and be of service to others.

But what I do with this day is important because I have exchanged a day of my life for it.

When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever.

I hope I will not regret the price I paid for it.

    Thank you for the book goodie. I love to read and love our library. It doesn't have a cafe like yours, but there are lots of activities and I belong to a book club there. It's in our city park and there are floor to ceiling windows where you can sit and look out at the duck pond. Hope you are having a great summer and staying cool!

    Thanks for adding me as a friend. I got the shingles vaccine a couple years ago before I retired. My boss got shingles and after seeing how she suffered I sure didn't want to get it. I don't think they warn people enough about it. I hope you are having a great summer.
