Both getting the paper newsletter for years now as well as reading most of the exercise related topic that i don’t remember reading would be how to cope, physically and psychologically, when one has to recover from a physical setback, esp as one ages. For instance in my case it’s 2.5 years on from having a shoulder rebuilt. Swimming has been a lifetime activity/sport and though i’ve been back in the water for 2 years, i’m nowhere near as fast as i was before nuking my shoulder & butterfly is still not possible. Probably one shouldn’t look at a clock as a couple of weeks back i swam 50 yrds breaststroke, felt good…but then saw that my time was a little slower than my 8&under time which was disconcerting.

Staying as active as I can has been my best medicine yet. Trying to attend various local spin classes has greatly improved my cardiovascular systems. The newest infusion OCREVUS has definitely lessened the numbers of exacerbations and a longer period of time between these attacks. Grateful everyday for the improvements.
This disease has been with me over 45 years so feel like I am already winning .
