I have just joined. I am 81 and not very mobile having suffered a couple of strokes two years ago and then a fall a year ago. I had physiotherapy which got my speech back and made my writing just about legible. After my fall I lost my confidence and realise my balance is appalling. I "furniture walk" round the house and use two sticks or a rollator when out and go to balance exercises every week. I have painful arthritis in my wrists and ankles and a painful knee that is very mis-shapen. Luckily I can still drive. I need to lose 3 stone (but 1 would be nice!). Miracles may happen!
