Time to give up? Mourn and accept new health reality?

@keeptrying I'm with @oldkarl. It can be depressing to look back at what was instead of looking forward with what is. Life really is about changes and how we react to the changes. Me, I hate change. I hate that I can't walk more than a few blocks and then it's a struggle but I just try to do the best I can and work on seeing if I can go a little further each day. I think it's always a good thing to reach out and see if there are ways or treatments you can do to help with your current health problems. Each of us are unique and there just maybe that one thing out there that will help. I have resigned myself to never being able to run but then I couldn't run very fast even as a kid. Now I'm the guy you want to be with if a bear is chasing you. All you have to do is outrun me which is not too hard to do. ☺

Do you have any hobbies that you enjoy that you can do? I like taking pictures of critters out of my window in the room where I have computer. Took this one yesterday - squirrel jumped on my bird feeder and ate most of a large bird seed wheel.

Hoping you have a pain free rest of the week.

Yes I try to keep an 'Attitude of Gratitude' I still have so many things to be grateful for, my loving family and friends. No one wants to be with anyone who complains all the time.

a very happy and well dined bushy tailed rodent. Thank you for sharing and giving me a chuckle.

@parus - here's a link to a video of how he got on my bird feeder. Guess I need to shovel some snow from under my feeder so the squirrel cone is higher. It's one of those keep trying until you get it right messages.



@johnbishop Preety crafty squirrel there John! loved the vidio!

One of the many reasons this group is helpful is that sometimes you can't help but smile!☺ Love your critter photo. I too tinker around with photography. There is something calming about doing a 'still life' of something you find in nature. If I can't hike in the woods anymore, I can surely bring the woods to me. Photography also brings the element of surprise that you encounter in a hike. Nature is good medicine for the soul (I think.)

We have several all White Squirrels on our block! I feed them peanuts in their shells but causing quite a mess on the sidewalk. Still...worth it.
