I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

I have no PT scheduled next week. I'll do home exercises, an reevaluation the following week and see the orthopedic doctor. It'll be nice to have a normal week. I've had PT since the beginning of the year with a short break for my exchange surgery.

Did ourwalk before breakfast. It's another hot day. Glad to be inside the rest of the day. I had a GYN appointment earlier and had a punch biopsy. It'll be good to take it easy today.

Enjoy your day.

Just got back from visit with ortho. I got an injection in my knee. He thinks some of the pain is coming from my back, too. So we made a re-visit in three weeks in case I am still having problems. With all my nerve damage from various causes.....

Everybody really knows what to do to have his or her life filled with joy. What is it?

Quit hating people; start loving them. Quit being mad at people; start liking them.
Quit doing wrong; quit being filled with fear. Quit thinking about yourself
and go out and do something for other people. Everybody knows what
you have to do to be happy. But the wisdom of the test lies in the final words:
"If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them."

I sure hope everyone's pt issues ( over-all health as well ) find some good resolution. I have to admit I can't truly imagine all you are probably going through, but wonder if I could handle it. I am sorry Sandy that it seems it will be awhile for you to get attention for yours. I will be hoping that there is a cancellation and maybe you can get an earlier appt.

Nothing special today. Nice to NOT have to do anything and do just what presents itself as the most pressing.

I hope you all have a good day.
