I find myself watching things rather than participating as I wobble when I walk and pain comes and goes. I am constantly up and down getting flowers vases etc and am on concrete all day 10 hour days and it's always cold in my area. Average temp 56 degrees. And at the end of the day all I want to do is veg.
