In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine.

In the past couple of years I have been diagnosed with 4 pain conditions - FMS, Allodynia, Arthralgia and Neuropathy. I have a spinal injury which occurred at age 10 (but never pinpointed till age 41) and also sustained 5 herniated discs and arthritis in my spine. It is a challenge finding the fine line between the right amount of activity and going beyond that - which often results in prolonged periods of immobility. This has impacted adversely on my ability to exercise, and my weight has crept up as a result.

I am now trying to eat more consciously and be more aware of portion control. Like many Spark Page members, I do love my food.

I love meeting new friends, so feel free to stop by and say hello.

Being mindful of portion control.

Move my body as much as I can within limits.

Personal Information:

I love animals, and lost my beloved cat Coco aged 17, in December 2009.

Inspirational Quote:

People who succeed have momentum. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
~Tony Robbins

Hi, Happy February. I hope you and your mum are doing well.
I am easing in to retired life, and just managing to live on my pension without the extra work income. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Nattacia. Thanks for visiting my blog and the good wishes.It still has not sunk in that I am retired but it is good to know that I can take my time and get things done around the house. How are you handling the hot weather? It is so humid here, I'm exhausted. Have a great and healthy New Year. emoticon
