Hi Folks,

I voted for jogging since that is what I am now really learning how to do correctly. I have a jogging leg and love it. But I also walk and bike ride for exercise and pleasure. So how come I can't pick more than one type of exercise. That is like only being allowed one item on a menu.

My 2 cents

Paula

I put bike riding, swimming and gym. I would have liked to have put jogging as well but I am unable to do that at the moment because the socket of the running leg that I got made in England before I came out to HK and which cost me - get this - 4000 pounds - is too uncomfortable. I am getting a new socket made in HK at the moment which is costing me - get this again - 500HK dollars - which is about 40 quid in English money.

What on earth is going on with the NHS in the UK if they have to charge so much for something that obviously must cost so little???

Sorry off topic. I am going to start a new thread about this when I have time.

Makes you wonder, doesn't it Fiona. Perhaps we all need to come out to HK to get private legs.

First I love water aerobics because it makes my whole body feel good, just can't do it in the evening because I get to hyped up to sleep--that's an old lady for ya. Secondly, after watching Heather on Dancing with the Stars, I decided to give my love of dancing another try. I'm pretty good at the mechanics of the steps, but I can forget every turning since we gals turn on our right foot. The upperhalf may start going, but I'm afraid that being an RBK, my foot won't be able to take my leg and lower body with the upper. But, I'll keep working at that, too. Anywho, those are the active things I really enjoy doing. Thank goodness we can do some activities or we'd all be outgrowing our prosthesis.

The one cliche that comes to mind is "Nothing worthwhile, ever came easy" or "I got it the hard way, I worked for it" or "Nothing ventured, nothing gained" or the least relavant "No pain - no gain". (I don't really llie that one).

You, my friend are the ipitome of these old tired sayings. Maybe they are true....maybe not, but I have to admit, that they do fit you. AND, more remarkedly - I don't think I've heard you complain or whine once about it. That is perserverence. You have my respect - as do all of the others out there each day who just want to navigate a curb..... and keep on trying.

Thanks Jim! I also rode a bike as child peddled with one leg as I had a brace that could not bend...So it comes easy to me. :)

You know Jim I owe my attitude to my parents they never papmered, babied, gave me special privileges or made me feel special for my birth defect. They taught me to accept what god gave me and to do the best I can they never held me back..They often had to reming teachers and friends to do the same. I was one of 8 chilldren with me being the youngest and I was treated equally. They were wonderul people andraised us to respect ourself as well aas others..I was very blessed to have such wonderful parents.. :)

Another example of good "PARENTING". People ask me what is wrong with the world today, and I have only one word for them - yes.....PARENTING. Just like the language that we speak, the manners and attitudes, are also learned at home. Too many parents now-a-days, are too busy thinking of themselves than their children.

There is an old saying: The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Which is just another way of saying - Like parent - like child. OR A chip off the old block.

Just the thoughts of an old man who has been watching the world turn for 70 years. Another un-asked-for opinion. :P

My srump is in poor shape..I had over 15 operations in my leg since 8 months old and the more operations and pain before a amutation the more pain after. My stump still had the pseudoarthrosis in it and the remaing tibia is bowed. My prosthetic is built around it. But I do ok..Thanks for asking! :)

My parents, and my mother in particularly always told me I could do anything I wanted to. When the school system told her I should go to a 'special school' as I wouldn;t cope she told them that I was going to the local school the same as my older brother and that was that. Nowadays she sometimes complains that she didn't mean me to take her quite so literally - such as when she is watching the latest DVD from training camp!! But I owe what I am to my parents and to their refusal to see my problem as anything but a minor inconvenience - but I do think that I am sometimes a somewhat unsympathetic parent. :unsure:

You could ask them to amputate higher.....up around the clavicle might do the trick :lol:

Only joking :D :lol:
