A long time since my last comment. I have continued with my strick exercise and habit change chain program, with heartening results. Because of the current isolation restrictions in Australia, gyms etc are closed. I bought a second hand stationary bike , and ride it daily to improve my cardio level. My neuroplasticity exercises have given me evidence , that somethig good is starting to happen, but, with a long way to to final healing, which I now believe will happen.. I am walking better with reduced pain; I am sleeping better than I have for years; I have decreased the urgency of needing to have a pee; my balance is improving. Now these improvements are not massively great, but ARE honest improvements. I am now on target to ride an exercis bike for 90 minutes on ,my 90th birthday in January next year. By then I believe my Peripheral-neuropathy should have reduced. Right now I ride my bike for 20 minutes 3 times a day, and will increase time each month til my target is achieved. I control my diet to maintain energy levels. Best wishes to all from Australia.
