I got the email notification. Thank you Heinz!
I don't do Facebook, so I'm posting here on the Pages.
I've popped in occasionally and "vow" to myself to visit more...and then life happens and it's one more "vow" I haven't done. :shock: :lol:

I'm living with ongoing nerve damage throughout my body which began in 2011. It's been really rough. The toughest thing I've lived, I think.

In June, 2016, we discovered that my recalled, defective hip implant from 2008, had been leaching cobalt and chromium into my body, which can contribute to nerve damage. So, in August, 2016, the scalpel artist (surgeon) took it out and replaced it with a non-leachy. My metal levels continue to come down, and I've seen improvement in some areas. I'm grateful.

(Isn't this what us aged folks do? Chat about ailments? :lol: )

Due to the nerve damage, I had to give up a lot of activities, including hiking. Despite the nerve damage, I discovered I could ride a bike. So, I cycle often on railtrails and greenways. It's been a lifesaver for me through the trauma of the illness.

When using my legs to walk, I usually have to use trekking poles or my walker. My bike's name is Olivia. My walker's name is The Phoenix, or Phoenix for short. :cheers:

I'm still blogging and every so often publish a poem on my blog(s).

I don't do FB but I do Twitter here:
Follow, if you'd like, and I'll follow back.

:hugs: :hello:

Wonderful to hear from you, Carol. :hearts:

It seems we're all getting older... wonder what causes that? :mrgreen:

Thank you for your response... you made my heart smile today.

Hello token, I meant to type nekot lol I'm sure I have pulled this one on you in the past. I came back to the site last night and noticed your Pages name. I said to my dementia infested mind I know this person. Then this morning as I read through the discussion forum it clicked :hello: I can relate to your nerve pain and pain in general. Continue to Heal and Be Well my Friend. Take Care
