Mom Graham Wants to Walk and Climb Stairs Age 84 #elderexercises

I can leave for Haiti, without worries. Soon Mom Graham will go 100 percent free range,, and do her exercises without any supervision from me, Andy, a.k.a. Gadget. I am super proud of Mom Graham, when she got up off a 13 inch chair today 3 times today, I knew that she also would, and could climb flights of stairs 5-10 times, truly the only limits exist in her brain, not her body. As best I can surmise, and understand a body of age 84, they can reactivate their muscles, it the brain that is tired, or retired, not the body. Yet, it is difficult, I had to remind Mom, "You was in a wheelchair when we started." The brain of has this delusional, illusion that denies age, or that is has gotten older. I thank God I became a rip roaring alcoholic, and was forced by the legal system of the USA to learn my limitations, and can walk right up to them and not pass them, but push them. Mom is learning how to touch her limit, but not pass them. I call it though, "Pavlows Traumatized Dogs" as she does not understand Pavlow's Dogs, or classical conditioning, she has to stop traumatizing her body, and accept she is not old, or not young. My best friend Chet, a.ka. Jeff K always like to quote Clint Eastwood. "A man must know his limitations." Watch on YouTube LOL - I know mine, because I fought athourity, and authority always won, I accept who I am. -- Thank Johnny Cougar --- Watch Clint https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_VrFV5r8cs0 Watch Johnny Cougar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsEwK69LXjQ
