It is so hard when you can't do the things that you use to do. I went through that when I got fibromyalgia. I was in too much pain and too fatigued to do anything any more. And I did a lot of walking. Every morning. I would take my dogs for a walk in the woods and we walked a long ways. I can't do that anymore and it was hard finding other things to do in place of that. I still walk when I can, but it is just around the block, but I to twice because I have two dogs to walk. I use to cross country ski, and I can't do that anymore. I just dont' have the stamina for it anymore. I wanted to go just a little this year, but haven't got the inspiration to go yet. The days are getting warmer though, so I hope to go one day soon.
But yes, I understand not being able to do what you enjoyed before. I am glad that you are handling that part well. Finding new things comes too though. I got into making jewelry, collecting rocks, painting and wood burning. I love them all, but without the exercise, I have gained weight that I would like to lose.
I hope that you can get back into your hobbies, they sound interesting. I am not a photographer, but I got a nice camera and am learning to take good pictures. I carry it with me when I go out into the woods.
Well, I am starting to ramble some. I hope that you have a good night. Best wishes to you.
