  1. Yeah cause if it was that simple first responders would be using it. Hope this gets refuted in a professional way.
  2. This seems to me like its not for real. http://theamazingstuffs.com/health-related/how-to-save-a-person-from-stroke-using-only-a-needle/
  3. Again I posted a pic and this time I see its gone with do not enter symbol
  4. More disappointment with Fitbit but Samsung pulled through. Man this is difficult to insert photo's in here. Sometimes its easy I just drag it over other time it just won't go. Finally got it. My fitbit only recorded 1 mile where Samsung phone got the whole thing
  5. We had a light skiff of snow. Preparing to walk, boots, gloves, scarf, toque, not even dressed yet and I think I've got in enough therapy. I'll attempt a photo. Glad its pretty flat country around me.
  6. Finally after being a little click happy and wiping the posts out reposting the photo. Apologizing for being click happy and wiping things out Steve has fixed my errors. Thank you
  7. Frosty walk. Did 1.2 miles thanks for the pointers Heathber. Tomorrow sounds like snow might be the obstacle to deal with.
  8. I too would burst into tears at location I felt there no reason. First time I went to stroke club. I balled the whole time. Couldn't stop. Felt really confused as most these people understand too. Also have burst into laughter in Burger King at just before we gave our order and it seemed to give insecurity to some younger guys who felt I was laughing at them (maybe a little) but no, I just couldn't stop and the more I laughed the more these guys were becoming challenged. My wife had to step in. I gotten medication to curb the emotional outburst but psychologist reassured me its not a cure all. Its an aid to lessen the effects. Your human and dealing with a brain on the mend. Its all unpredictable. I too was so worried over the crying but the laughter is harder on me than crying was. Glad its in check, not cured but understand better. Thanks for sharing.

  10. That was motivational for me Ray. Thanks.
  11. Learning how to overcome these feelings of tingling and spasticity. Not sure if this is common but as I walk I start to hunch over. Tingling increases. I've used canes, walker & weights. I can walk without any devices and willing to try what ever. Just wonder if there are those that are walker/runners and are interested in coaching or sharing ideas on improving gait? Right now I try and get 3500 steps a day, been experimenting with other fitness thing like Strava. Use a Fitbit blaze. Never was an "athlete" just searching for ideas, things to try, routine methods, from stroke or brain injury perspective.
  12. Was briefly reading material on forums when I noticed at the bottom this web page was Who Was Online. More particular the most members online. Not sure this is good or bad. Keep up the good work for those that invest their time to this. Thank you.

  13. Its the easiest motivator for me. I think I started out with 20 minutes at 1.4 mph. Jot it down. Nice to see your progress. Love the bands. Other than they wear out and fly apart. Still do them once a week. But yes a very in expensive method to work out. Caution though make sure you use the emergency shut down. I've been saved several times. Its easy to neglect but with spasticity thing can go awry suddenly.
  14. Yes I would recommend it for convenience sake and safety. A plus for us wife started using the treadmill also and her health and mental attitude has gotten better.
