My doctor has prescribed Gabapentin, 1200mg. twice a day. Not perfect, but it really helps.

Merry, you are a great excuse maker. Your comments make me feel better. One time years ago, before NHL I drove to the gym, sat there in my car and then went home! Crazy. Now I am back, but it is an effort, as you now. Hang in there. gp

Great shirt and nice photo. My friend sent me a poem when I was in chemo with a roaring tiger (my nickname)

Fate whispers to the warrior,
"You can not withstand the storm."
The warrior whispers back,
"I am the storm."

Hang in there. gp

Thanks to everybody for checking in. After surgery and chemo in 2017 for stage 1 Non Hodgkins Lymphoma found on a fluke, my doc in January 2019 says I am cured and just need yearly checkups with PET scan, unless I have symptoms.

Hang in there, Warriors. gp

I hope this lasts long enough for me to get back in the habit. Thanks, gp

When I can get my butt to the gym I do also like the rowing and reclining elliptical bike. The trick is getting myself there… All the talk about activity on this site is encouraging me.

Nice recipe. Will try it soon. How 'bout the other one? Thanks.

I have work experience in counseling people in behavior change but can't motivate myself to get back into the gym. Any tricks? Studies specifically show that people with Non hodgkins lymphoma who exercise are less likely to recur. You'd think that would get me moving but…
