Hi, my name is guitarman!

guitarman Member Posts: 1 Listener
I am 60 at xmas and suffer from various things such as arthritis in my lower back hip and both knees, I have a heart problem wher it only works at about 70%, also breathing problems and i am verry much overweight, mainly due to the lack of mobility, I cant stand for more than about 30 seconds and cant walk more than about 10 yards without being in pain and gasping for breath. But apart from that I'm in the rudest of health.......lol.
As you will guess from theuser name I play the guitar and this has been a lifesaver for me as it gives me something to do with my time, I am also into photography and video making, but just lately I havent been getting out as often to do any snapping.
I live in Leeds West Yorks in a nice Council bungalow which meets my needs and have great neigbours. Well thats about it not much of an introduction more like a good moan.......lol

    Hi @guitarman,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you on board.

    Thanks for sharing this with us - are you currently receiving any support for your condition?

    Also, it's great to speak to a fellow musician! I used to play the guitar many years ago, but I'm more of a drummer now and have been playing the kit for around 10/11 years - I love it! I also love a bit of photography from time to time myself as well. Great hobbies!

    If you have any questions, please do get in touch!
