@cindyt63 – Great comments! I agree with you wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, I don't think there is any way to get a spouse to do what they don't want to do themselves (she said with a sigh based on hard experience! LOL.) Sorry for your husband's distress. I hope things improve for both of you. Does his limited mobility affect your own options for activity? How do you handle that?

I don't let his mobility affect mine. Although I have degenerative disc disease, osteopenia, fibromyalgia and other ailments I refuse to give in. I do what I want within my limits. That means he stays at home and I go do whatever. Forty-three years ago, I didn't think our eight year age difference would be an issue. Now he's 71 and I'm 63 I have tried to take care of myself and stay as active as possible. I do all the yard work and I have a small garden in the spring and summer. I do all the shopping, cooking, cleaning, household repairs and laundry. I also have hobbies such as crocheting, knitting, quilting, genealogy, and embroidery that keep me as busy as I want to be. I have always believed that keeping our minds and bodies active improves our quality and quantity of life.
