    That looks worthwhile Heather. Hope you used government money. Think I'll get one. Alan so glad you felt stronger after using the bike. My poor girl has cobwebs on her. I seriously need to get serious. 💚👑

    That is odd, Deigh. Hopefully a one off 💚👑

    Might have to read Marty McFly's book! Love what his father in law told him, one to live by 💚👑

    Makes sense about the hip pain, Heather. Sometimes I do wonder why my hip hurts so much, but having to work hard to walk...yep. Of course everything is going to hurt. 💚👑

    Oh Pam. Life is not fair. I'm so sorry to hear you have to cause yourself pain to fix another issue. Hope it works for you 💚👑

    Wow Pam, you certainly do have it all going on! All the best with your next procedure. Take care 💚👑

    Oh Tracy...thanks for sharing. I don't suffer emotionally like your stroke deficit, and I must say that it must take up a huge part of your day, overcoming emotions constantly. Keep fighting the good fight. Heather you go girl! He did say get comfy!! It's interesting that you say about people hearing what they expect to hear. When I'm stuttering over words, or searching for them, it's amazing that when people try and do me a Molly Meldrum, just how wrong they can be!! 💚👑

    Not sure if I'm just getting old (I definitely feel like it!) or if this is just one of those things... My affected ankle swells heaps, especially when I've done too much walking or even standing. Apparently my leg would be out of the socket like my arm is, but because of gravity it's all good. But even so, my ankle pays for the weight of me standing on it. Also, I'm trying to 'walk' on my foot, not drag it along and sometimes I slap it down on the ground so hard (without realising) I'm in massive pain. Anyway, my calf hurts too, may

    At the moment the shoulder is the least of my physical problems!! I cannot believe that more shoulder, which is painful a lot of the time, is not top of the list!! Been having a lot of trouble with my back and hips. Apparently my hips are bad due to the back pain. Everything seems to happen as a reaction to one thing. My neck is sore quite often, as it tenses up to help the shoulder stay put. It's very hard to exercise all parts of the body at the same time. Because of fatigue, I can't give each problem the ti

    Kelli please pass on my thanks to Missy and her techno guru! 💚👑

    Gonna be the same here, Willis. We've got no cases at all in WA, and when we do they are usually people off ships or overseas return travellers. When we open borders, no one will know what to do! No such thing as social distancing etc here. Which is nice, but it will be hard to adapt. 💚👑
  14. GreenQueen

    So glad freedom is yours again Sue! We are opening borders to you guys next year. We have no idea how to cope with long lockdowns, and hopefully we won't find out! Thanks to you, I do know that whatever happens over here, we will cope. 💚👑

    Resistance to change is a tough one to beat. Kudos to you, Asha, for giving it a go. 💚👑

    Tracy your positivity is shining through!! You go, girl!! So happy for you re your sugars. That's a huge difference! And a huge high five for weight loss! When we are happy with ourselves other things do come a little easier. 💚👑

    Deigh...GREAT cartoon...thank you! 💚👑
  18. GreenQueen

    Thank you so much for your support, online family! 💚💚 Everything came to a head, and tears flowed. So did many angry words...not from me...but I did respond quickly with hurtful words. Yes, was with my husband! The trouble with all of us, really, is we bottle things up for too long, and the resulting 'conversation ' can be very painful. I do feel better emotionally now everything's out in the open. 💚👑

    Joey has the happy dance going on!! Chandler...not so much!! 💚👑

    It is lovely to be back. There's been issues here at home, so I can't promise to be here fully just yet. I hope that everyone is ok after the break. 💚👑

    Kelli we watched America fall apart from the safety of our living rooms. While our initial lockdown seemed harsh, we are glad for it. Here in WA we've had freedoms almost like no other. Now that you guys are heading into winter, I hope that whatever strategies are in place keep you safe. 💚👑
  22. For reasons that I can't/won't explain, there's a lot of tension in the house at the moment. So much so, I really need to cry. But I can't. It just won't happen. I'm not holding them in, they just aren't there. Not even the silent tears that fall when you are desperately trying to keep in. Is it possible, that after all the tears and emotion that happened when thisall began, I've run out of tears? 💚👑
  23. GreenQueen

    Oh Sue. I'm so grateful you have contact with others via social media etc. We absolutely do need new purpose in life, after all this. Mind you, we haven't even begun. We watch the rest of the world in disbelief. This cannot possibly be happening. WA is absolutely FULL of conspiracy theorists. Makes for very interesting conversations. Take care Sue 💚👑

    Some amazing quotes there, Asha. One of my favourite quotes (my signature) is: I am where I need to be today. That's from our very own Tracy. I remind myself often of this. 💚👑

    Exactly. The ache is dull, but can get painful over long periods of it not being supported. 💚👑
