My conditioning is limiting a lot of things that I can do, i.e. boating, walking long term, standing long term. It's difficult to do my job teaching pre-school. Painful to sit too long at the computer. Driving is painful for more than an hour. Grocery shopping is difficult. Just normal every day things are harder and painful.
