@susu2 I’m so sorry to hear that you’re are getting weaker and that depression is setting in. This has been such a difficult time for everyone. It makes me think of my mom who at age 96, lives alone in a retirement facility. We have really worried about her and being alone for a year. So we set up some plans to keep her busy. One sister taught her how to use Facebook so she can keep up with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And, she loves it! And every month or two, we have a whole family FaceTime call (thru Facebook).
Do you have someone who can help with something like this?
And yes, the orthopedist was right. Everyone gets weaker if they don’t use their muscles and get moving. Even just walking around your house will help. I posted the link to a discussion about our virtual walking group. It has helped many of us get into the habit of walking or doing some exercise. And we have some great conversation along the way!
