I’m sorry Bee. I seem to be having many health issues myself, seem to be at the drs every week. It’s taking a toll and I’m only 41. Isn’t that too young for this crap?

Hopefully tomorrows a better day for us both. Keep chugging along girlfriend! Hugs.

hhugs, Bee!! I’ve travelled a imar journey as you, many years ago. I was part of a group that founded a roller derby league, was captain, on the traveling team, and loved the sport more than anything. Life happened  (I got hurt too, health issues, and a divorce) and after 7 years I retired. Weightlifting became an outlet for me.. as did yoga and meditation. I love competitive physical sports, but yoga has taught me to accept my body and challenge it in different ways. It’s also taught me to be more patient and gentle with myself and others. If you are willing, I recommend you give it a chance. It helped me on many levels. There are many styles – some quite physical (like ashtanga) and some restorative (like hatha).

Having to give up something like this can feel like giving up part of your identity and outlet to manage stress..  I’m so sorry you are having to face this again, particularly when you have other challenges going on. But you will find something that you will love- enjoy the journey and experiment. Big internet hugs!
