I LOVE to dance but am suffering badly with osteoporosis. 18 broken bones 2018 doctors dam fault had me on too much blood pressure medication and every time I stood up passed out broke bones. Stood up one night fell on my back on hardwood floors and broke 5 ribs took my breath away. I just lay there until I could crawl to the bed. Then starting taking my own blood pressure woke up one morning 60/40 passed out in toilet and put 2 more fractures in my spine. She said to me your too thin your falling over and breaking bones….. I was angry and snapped back and said “ that’s YOUR fault” she won’t treat me anymore thank goodness she told head of medical centre she can’t cope with me. She was too interested in telling me about her $200 eyelashes that she had to brush buying new clothes to keep up with the young ones in the medical centre and going to the races and buying facinators with a TV presenter her husband is a TV news presenter. Thank god I have a new doctor. But unfortunately the broken bones in my foot ache and I want to learn to dance swing so am desperately trying new vitamins from a girl that’s studied nutrition. That stupid doctor sent me to endocrinologist and she wanted me to inject myself every day with this stuff. My nutritionist said it does make your bones stronger but just fills them with putty you need to repair the bones need nutrients from food and these really good vitamins they are expensive but the ingredients don’t come from China and what they say on the bottle is actually in the bottle a lot don’t. So I am hoping I can get back to dancing I just love it it makes me happy and it’s such great fun which we all need now

Hi! I too love to dance but my husband does not. I needed good, fun exercise besides the gym and discovered Body Groove dancing. What a great way to get in shape at your own pace! Dance your own way, join a fantastic, supportive group of people who become your cheer leaders as you work to improve your life (a private Facebook group you just have to join for free) you can dance in your home, and make whatever modifications you need for doing the moves -like some who are recovering from injuries, surgery, bad knees, bone issues, might do it at first by sitting, or like I do with a painful bunion I do not do any jumping, etc. I think this might be perfect for you to get going. Add strength without doing heavy weights and enjoy dancing even before you are ready to tackle that swing dance ?which i also love!) It is found at Bodyvrooveondemad.com and there is a Facebook group by that name ( Body Groove On-Demand) you can search for to request to join. The access to the dances on line is one price ($60) for a full year access and might even be on sale right now. I do the 30 day challenge, the workout of the Day and am going to try the other options like Young at Heart which has gentler moves, that are included in the one price. I bought a combo DVD set to do when my year is done, though I will likely renew the online demand one too.. I know i soundi like a commercial, but this dance exercise has changed the lives of so many , including mine,, and you seem like you could really benefit!! just join the Facebook group and read the comments to see what you think.

Hi there! Glad to meet a fellow dancer. Yes, it would be great to dance again! At times I do dance by myself at home, but this staying at home situation and the upcoming family holidays are feeding into my depression big time. Am grateful for babysitting which gets me out of the house.
By the way, I'm on blood pressure medication and wonder what dosage is too much that would cause such brittle bones.
From one fellow dancer to another…we will dance again!
