    It is a lovely place, though I would find it lonesome especially in winter months. Rich you should get a dog, and a room mate. or better yet, invite a care cure member out for a visit to beautifil Bucks county Pennsylvania. I suggest the fall months as the most amazing.

    I was thinking if you didn't mind, I would drop in around fest time and grace you with my self and my ukulele.

    Back spasms and roaring nerve pain making everything so difficult, I spend every day counting the minutes until I can get back in bed. If I didn't have an office job I don't think I'd ever get out of bed. Thankful for the job of course, but it's hard when I'm constantly in pain and everyone else is just walking around chatting about their hobbies and their great weekends and vacations and all that stuff I can't have anymore because I hurt too much all the time.

    Don't get down on yourself, you have been through a lot this past year. Keep on keepin on.
    Thanks Jim,
    I have been handcycling occasionally. But, I tend to overexercise when I do get out!
    I so appreciate your kind words.

    If it keeps up I'll probably get carpal tunnel syndrome or some type of painful hand and/or wrist condition. I have no idea how a quad or a person with arthritis in their hands and wrists could possibly open them up.

    I find I drop things a lot these days. Seems harder to grip things.
    When I grip too hard I get a nasty spasm (or is it a cramp).

    Sorry you are feeling depressed. You seemed to have a great time on your trip to Florida, I think this shows that w some changes life can be more enjoyable. I agree that a lot of exercise (if your pain issues will allow) can help dissipate the blues.

    I have tended to strain myself working around the property.
    It's nice to do as much as I can, though.
    Exercise does help!

    Alexis,
    I hope you can feel more peaceful about things.
    I'm working on it.

    It was fantastic, remember you're still the same man as the guy presenting the film.
    Thanks Timaru,
    I watched the film again. It lifted my spirits a bit.

    Man, I wish "science" would develop a way to turn off such unnecessary pain!
    Pain is useful when it lets us know we need to remedy a problem.
    But, we have a generally unfixable problem.

    I hate people. Ha, not really. But I do feel like that at times. Mostly, they only think for themselves.
