Used swimming pool

Tuesday, February 04, 2014



To give information missing from my previous blog. I’ve been walking every day since 2007. I believed the story that I could walk every day for the rest of my life. I tried. The story is a lie. Until Christmas Day 2013 I was walking 120 minutes a day, every day. I have walked through plantar fasciitis in both feet. I have a heel spur that needs to be surgically removed. I have osteoarthritis in my ankles. I have had a cortisone shot that stopped my heart due to allergic reaction, not once but two different times. The doctor didn’t believe me when I told him I was allergic! Here I am still walking. I can only do 75 minutes most days. Some times when I put my foot down my whole body jars with a pain that drops me to my knees. Yet I still walk. The doctor is afraid to operate on my foot due to my allergic reactions. I’m afraid to see the doctor anymore. I have panic attacks just thinking that I might have to see a doctor.

I ride my exercise bike and find myself starring at the gauges. I cover them so I can’t see them. The bike bores me. When I walk my mind runs free. Why doesn’t the bike do the same? Thanks for the suggestions. I haven’t watched much TV in my life. The last movie I saw was Star Wars. Yes, Star Wars in 1977. I’ll keep trying.

I’ve been lifiting weights for a few weeks. Remember the osteoarthritis in my ankle? Well its now in my elbows, my shoulders and my wrists as well. I read the instruction manual. I didn’t over lift. I didn’t over do it. Weight lifting is probably out of the question for me. Sigh.

Anyone have a used swimming pool they would like to sell me?
