  1. 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.

    High Ropes. Straight pull up then walk across cables
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Yes congrats. I'm so suspicious of my anniversary date and 2nd year was pleasantly uneventful.
  8. A new hobby that is therapeutic.
  9. Just browsing about again today waiting for stroke chat.  There was a moderator in the lobby.  When I checked that chat schedule I noticed that its all gone.  The time and group active.  Is it gone with this new format?  I thought I had checked it with the new board and it was there.  See if it is the same for you.  Maybe just us Great White Northerners.

      Mark, some of the e-mails you receive will be from ksmith....That's Kelli Smith, and she is an administrator who works with Steve (they're both super helpful).  Only the administration team of StrokeNet has your e-mail address.  Are you online now?  If yes, I can meet you in the chat room in a few minutes to answer (whoops, change that to try to answer) any questions you have.  I'll check back here at 12:15 my time which will be 11:15 for you, ok?  (I really try hard to not say "eh", lol)

      It's  alright  eh!  12:30 pm nap time.  FYI others can reply on here.  It shows as email inbox on the new format.  That's where I'm getting them and my personal email notifies me.

      Mark, I haven't noticed the email inbox; but I think it's probably the same place that I call a message inbox.  Semantics, eh? :2thumbs:

      we usually have chats every day in the afternoon 3-4 EST & evening 8-9 EST Monday,wednesday & friday

      Thanks I'll try this evening.  Without that calendar it is a trick to remember times and type of chats they're hosting.  Joined a stroke support group last week.  Its good but tiring right now. Only going for Wednesdays.  Its a half hour drive also.  Again thanks.

  12. Pearl that sounds like another read I should tackle. Right now reading an ebook called Brain Facts: A Primer on the Brain and Nervous System. I like actual books after trying this. It did help me with the page turning. Bookmarking was excellent but recalling what I read that something just have to do. Over and over sometimes. Makes for slow reading. Interesting learning as some of the material you can relate to. Its more a medical book so I find it not too compelling to read. Next read a hard cover book "Cross The Line" James Patterson.
