I'll not be beaten

Hi to all. I have recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis which perhaps accounts for the various aches and pains I have had for the last 10 years. Not been pleasant. However, I'll not be beaten.

A few years ago I kept falling of my bike as I did not have the balance or power in my back to assist with turning. I updated to an e-tricycle which requires good turning strength which unfortunately I now lack.

I still attend the gym and walk on the treadmill holding the bar and use the recumbent bicycle.

I retired last year and I try hard to keep myself moving. I am now 67 and I was hoping to achieve good and pain-free movement. It can be a challenge to bend down to play with my granddaughter which I can hopefully improve on.

I have been reasonably fit and healthy throughout my life but menopause was my downturn.

Keep smiling

Kind regards
