Hi My name is Trish, I am going to be 50 this coming year and I have 2 knees that are in need of replacements due to arthritis and no cartilage. I have let myself go for far to long and am looking for a new me in the up and coming new year. I have 4 daughers and 2 grandsons as well as a grand daughter on the way. I have battled depression for the past oh 45 35 years. 2018 has not been very nice to me when it stated my mother had gone in for a routine test only to be rushed to a Chicago hospital. A day before her one of her 3 surgeries that week my father passed away. Her triple bypass surgery was on the day of my fathers funeral, and my best friend died the day after we said goodbye to him. In the month of May my favorite uncle died and in July my 15 year old tried to take her life because of bullies in her school. I have been married twice and divorced both of them because they were mentally abusive. So this year, I want it behind me like both of my marriages. I am ready to start a New Year with a New Outlook! :)

Hello! I am glad to join all of you! emoticon I am 64 with bad heart, bad lungs, bad hip,etc. in a wheelchair, can no longer walk. Yes I appear to be a mess! But all of this cannot always spoil a person's spirit - even though my spirit is sometimes reaching for sunshine! Well, that is why I am here. I need some new friends. I am a good listener and believe a breath of fresh air helps everything! emoticon emoticon

Hi,
My name is Rodger. 58 year old male, from Missouri. I have many health issues, heart, weight, joints, limited mobility. I am still able to do my job, but if I gain any more weight I believe my health will get to a point that I will no longer be able to continue. I have had three heart attacks, I have CAD, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Right knee is bone on bone, two herniated discs in my cervical spine, A Fib, edema in the legs, and morbid obesity. I need to lose 300 pounds. It is very difficult with limited mobility. My situation is something that is of my own doing. I do not have a good explanation for how I got here, but I know that I have to change things before it is too late. I think that I could use all the help that anyone can give me on increasing my activity level slowly, at present time walking any distance is out of the question until I can increase my stamina and breathing volume. I think that there are probably chair exercises, light weight workouts with dumb bells, and things like that. As far as diet goes, I would accept any suggestions, I am in the process of attempting to control portion size , and eat much cleaner , with little if any added sugars, as little commercially processed foods. I am hoping to get at least a friend or two on here that can lend me some support and encouragement. If I don't start to get my life and health turned around now, I fear there will be no turning back. Thanking any of you in advance, and have a wonderful day.

Hi I am Karen. Reintroducing myself as it has been a long time. I am 52 (53 next month). I have had severe arthritis in my knees for years. An illness several years ago damaged the knee and lower leg even further. I am now in a wheelchair. I struggle with stress and boredom eating. It is something I am really trying to control. Over the past year I think I have gained around 100 pounds. It is already hard enough to get around without that added weight. I am trying to get it together but really struggling.

Hi everyone, I am Carol, 72.5 years old (ya I'm counting). I have osteoarthritis in my knees, hands and shoulders. Believe me when I tell you that I have a very slow metabolism and don't eat much, so my body holds on tightly to what I do eat. Started a goal of no sugar, flour or rice. I am making progress but it sure is hard to eat as much as I need (I know...poor me lol). Like to hear from you, I love free advice! emoticon

My name is Tamara, and I just found this group today. I have mild Cerebral Palsy which affects my left side. I use a walker now when I'm out, because fall outside sometimes. I'm going to be 58 on the 22nd of this month. I love to loom knit baby caps for our pregnancy center that our church supports. I also like to watch the pioneer DVD'S from Jeanette okee. Love Comes softly series. Sorry this is kind of long

Hi i am new to this group and finally won SSI 2 years ago after fighting for over 10 years but for 3 years with a lawyer. Once i got a court hearing i won on the spot by a judge that has NEVER granted it for my lawyer for anyone and she had never had a case win on the spot in all her years of doing this. I am disabled both physcially and mentally (mental health depression, anxiety, severe PTSD, Grief from losing 4 babies and my hsuband, BPD etc) physical is for my back that i need surgery on asap but need to lose weight before they will touch me, i have fibro, many many other health issues and go on very little sleep. Even though my vit d level was at 4 when they tested me last week which si suppose to be 30 to 100, i still barely sleep im just really tired. I have issues with my heart but they cant figure out exactually what it is other than the symptoms never appeared until i was my husbands care giver ande got much worse when he died.

There is no strength where there is no struggle

Hello,
My name is Cindy and my disability is heart related. I pass out with out notice because one chamber of my heart beats out of sync, leaving me with no blood pressure. Because of this it is very difficult for me to do any kind of exercise. I will be 60 next week although my children will tell you I am 30 with 30 years of experience. That comes from being told that I would not live to see 30. But then again Dr's are only practicing, right.

I have three daughters and three step-sons. Who have blessed me with 15 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. I currently live with my husband and three of my four brothers. We also have two small dogs, one large cat and 18 chickens.

My hobbies include reading, crocheting and playing with my animals. I am also a born-again Christian and spend time with my church family.

I have had surgery 129 times including: Cancer four times, three heart attacks and I am on my 3rd pace-maker. I was misdiagnosed for 19 years, in that I was told it was all in my head and I was passing out for attention. You cannot imagine the self loathing that happens when you believe you are falling down for attention and you cannot stop yourself from doing it. Along with that I believed that being pretty was costly (raped at 16) so I sabotaged myself with food from an early age.

I am finally on a healing journey. I am hoping to find support and inspiration here. Everything I have read so far makes me believe this will be a great group to be a part of.
