WOW, THANKS SO MUCH, SAN, SUCH A POSITIVE AND HELPFUL MESSAGE! in my house before i literally had not even enough space to crouch down (if you can believe that!), especially not if i needed to lean against a wall for assistance, but now i've been able to clean out one room so, i'm going to try it!
also, someone recommended abdominal exercises - now i'm going to pull out the balance ball and see if i can't whip my deep core into shape!
...may i ask, do you also use a squatting platform or step for your commode? i wanted to get some feedback on those. the commode here is really tall and i am short and i just KNONW it is part of my problem.
THANK YOU AGAIN!
i keep trying and trying, i really want to restore my body and wish i could get this problem to go away permanently (with proper care of my body, of course) ...it's like, things always work for a while but then i wind up back here asking for help :( ...here's hopin'!
