Reminds Me of Jimeka, Erash and Amore54
Sorry if I left any others out--be sure to let us know if you, too, are cyclers like jimeka, erash and Amore55. CalfeeChick, I hope to hear that you are riding again, even if it means in a different form from what you are used to. 🚴
Love it tutu, I thought for a moment you had drawn the picture. Thank you 😊 🦋 🌈
Me draw, jimeka? 😂😂😂
Hey Tutu ,
Do stationary bikes count? Seems to be the only bike (like thing) I can ride these days.
Yes!!! You inspire me to go ride mine, jennie62. Just working up the energy to do so. 😉💕
jennie62, I stopped by our free neighborhood 'gym' yesterday and checked out their equipment. I didn't go today, and may not make it tomorrow due to an outing with my mom, but I plan to go back and try the stationary bike. I have to use the recumbent. Can't remember why 😳, but I wasn't able to use the regular one before. Legs don't move that way or something, but I think I'll try them both. Thanks! It's all due to your mention of this.
I'm so glad I had something to do with it! Sounds like you enjoyed the "free" gym. On Wednesday I go to see my PT and love his stationary bike! Can't wait to use it, has a timer and everything-lol. The one my dad let's me use doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it's closer than the PT's office.
🔔 and whistles are nice, jennie62. These are like that. I think you can regulate the tension through programming various 'rides.' I hope you enjoy your PT appt tomorrow. Do you go regularly?
I see him once a week, and he is so nice. Love his sense of humor...he's funny like the people I've met here and so very helpful too. So glad my neuro recommended him last year.
Tutu, my bike is supposed to be assembled on Tuesday! I will post a picture as soon as it is done. I bought it in December when Amazon had a good deal, but then had to wait all this time. Very patient. But now I am very ready to try it out. Thanks for the great post 😃. Kelly
Looking forward to that photo (w/u on the bike) Amore55 Kelly 😀
Didn't realize it hadn't been assembled yet, Amore55...but where's my head? (No marble jokes, Jesmcd2) I guess the weather in Utah hasn't been conducive to safe bike riding. 🚴
Today is Tuesday! Post a pic of your bike when you get a chance, Amore55. 🚴
Tutu You've reminded me to enjoy my trike today. The weather should be beautiful and hopefully my energy has recovered enuf from my week out of town.
Tutu, I don't know how u do it w/ all of your traveling!
erash l don't know how she ( Tutu ) does it either l would be sleeping for days!😴
Good luck on all the bike rides!☺💕
I did, Jesmcd2. 😴 And still feel like a slug. 🐌
I'm wiped out, erash. I often exhaust myself talking myself into going at the first. But once I'm there, I'm happy I went. It's the getting there and back home that is so hard, and becoming harder each time. It takes me longer to recoup after every trip. Thankfully, the adrenaline fuels me for a while, but when I'm traveling on fumes, it's much harder to push through. I finally unpacked my bags. Just walked by and looked at them for days. Not me at all, but guess that's the new, new me 😉
Was it a fun trip or time visiting your parents? That didn't come out right...but you know what I mean. 💕
Visiting parents. Dad had another lung biopsy and mom has a very serious hip problem 🙁
Sorry u feel the post-travel fatigue too...but at least I don't feel as wimpy.
What's the saying, "better to wear out than fade away"
I love your last line, erash. I'll have to remind myself of it when I feel worn out.
I'm sorry to hear about your parents. Perhaps being in the healthcare field you anticipated this in your future years ago. Not me. Naive, I guess. But we are at the age now and our parents need us. I don't know about you, but MS complicates things. It takes a lot these days to be there for someone else and be what they need when we ourselves lack energy (and mental acuity).
I hope you don't have pressing demands and can rest up as needed. 💕
I am sorry also erash l know l have been very lax on my emails. The drama never ends here. And with my mom it's always drama. So lm just trying to agree, then disagree when l hang up. I'm also trying to change the way l put things to her. To make them her ideas, instead of mine.
My prayers are with you and your family 💕
Jesmcd2 sounds like we have very similar moms. I'm very glad you don't have to live with her
I'm sorry jennie62 😞😢 ~hugs~ for you! I did with the girls for about 3months. I had a nervous breakdown 😑 l feel your pain my friend!🌠
Haha (why I laugh I don't know), but I too had a breakdown.
Hugs to you too! And thank you for being there.
We laugh jennie62 cause we ALL lived through it💕 And any time!☺🌠
Tutu l hope you are being very careful on your travels and resting when you need to!💕🌠
erash it's really hard when our parents get to the age we don't want to, and it's only around the corner really. I am sorry what your parents are going through, being in the field that you have been in you know all the ins and outs. I know when my parents went through it, it was harder for my sister being a doctor than it was the rest of us, as we could take it a face value. So hang in there and try not to over question everything. Blessings Jimeka big hug x
As I told Iona60
I'm writing/editing a book, Parenting your Parents for Dummies 😜
No doubt many of us can write a chapter for this book...
Are you really, erash? I don't know how you find time between all of your volunteering, bike riding, etc...
Tutu nah...it's a joke (even if not much of a joke) 🙁
But I did just receive a request to review an article on MS for a leading NURSE PRACTITIONER journal. There's a 2 week turn around so I better get busy 😊
I haven't done a review for this journal in awhile so it was a surprise!
Congrats! That's exciting, erash.
One thing I've learned working with senior citizens is that no one ever leaves us. They're just on another plane looking in on us. You're doing great with them and with everyone here too.
I'm still riding my bike!
Yay! Did I leave anyone, aside from Iona60, out? Sorry, didn't mean to!💕
I hope that's correct...at least it's what my calendar says...regardless have a wonderful day 🎈🎈🎈...
special lady, that's you! Without you in this chat room we would often be very very blue. You give comfort and...
Thinking of you in all that heat and you guys in California and wherever else it is hot, blessings Jimeka...
