I feel bad that this is not more troubling to me. I hope of course it doesn't touch me or family and friend but it is more interesting to me than frightening right now. It's in Michigan and spreading now. I'm doing all the things my government is telling me to do or not do. Shelter in place? Yeah been pretty much doing that for 5 years. I've got that down. My brain bleed left my left side pretty much disabled. I have mobility but very little sensation. I can limp around and "leftie" is using his left arm and hand more all the time. Especially on good days. I came out of it very lucky. I say this because I read of so many other members that are dealing with multiple issues caused by their strokes. Frankly I don't know how you do it or where you find the strength. I don't think I'm strong enough to fight through things like they do. So I guess what it is, my world was turned upside down for good 5 years ago and this crap doesn't change much for me Everyone shelter, wash those hands and stay safe

yes sir! I just tried out and then ordered a recumbent trike for my birthday gift to myself. Cant wait to get out and cruise,My short trial ride on our rails to trails thing was so much fun, and no stress, glad i could comfortably and smoothly ride while steering with my right arm only. Getting the Trident trike...Spike.Now lool\king at helmets.gotta protect what I have left.

Great! My recumbent is stationery and I have it in a picture window where I can watch the bird feeders and the rest of the world going by. I have thought about a trike for these scenic dirt roads I live on in the country. I know you did your research before deciding on a model. Good move trying it out. That is what my wife suggested too if I moved forward. Reading reviews the biggest complaint seemed to be that they tend to pull to the side the gear is on the rear axle. What a great gift for yourself to enjoy the scenery. Enjoy and be careful.  :wine: Happy Birthday!

Well that explains a lot. Recorded, watching and rewatching  a 3 part series series on the human body that was presented on Public TV. Part one was on our growth and development. The part that discussed our brains was of course all consuming and very fascinating. FACT: even though our brains make up only 2% of our body weight they demand and consume 20% of our calorie intake and they were talking about an undamaged brain I'm sure. Can anyone say fatique?

Yes always the need to push forward. It is a good thing. With me I can usually do it if I remember to "enjoy and embrace slow". it's not a bad thing and but I need to always remind myself of that. Naps yes! Childhood punishments have become adult rewards.🛌 🤣

I think you will be pleased with your purchase. It will take a little bit of figuring out what set up will be the most beneficial to you. It (like everything) is computerized and will have a nice option of settings from programs (I set mine for manual), timing of the minutes you want to ride and how much resistance you would like when peddling. When done it will display your results for you. I mostly pay attention to how far I rode and total the 3 sessions when done. My recumbent's resistance goes from 1 to 12. 1 being pretty much the peddles going around with very little push. I started at 3 and have recently moved up to resistance level 4. Other days I will do a 5 minute level 7 resistance sandwiched by two level 4's  That is on days I don't do any weights. I use to have a goal of riding 15 straight minutes (per what my doctor thought was a good # of minutes for a senior). I found that to be torture and it seemed like an hour sometimes. I decided to do 3 five minute rides instead and that has worked out much better. The bike and weights don't make me any stronger it doesn't seem and (I think as I'm aging) my strength is not what it use to be but that makes sense to me. However what this will do for is help you maintain and keep what you have. Enjoy and if I can help in anyway with questions at all please contact me anyway you choose.💪

Great plan Janelle, I got one when I first got home from hospital and used it everyday for about 18 months, it was a great tool and very useful. It's been used a lot less often over the last few years, I should sell it, but the cat loves to sit there and watch out the window.:lol:
