Stay positive May, it has to improve, that's always my theory as well.

Both these are so beautiful! Very vintage and classy too. I had a frozen shoulder a few years ago so I really sympathise! I have more or less full movement now and no pain! I religiously did the exercises the physio gave me and that really helped my recovery. There is light at the end of the tunnel! Take care! xxx

I love both of your tags May! The first one really looks like a found goodie from my grandmother's trunk. Seeing that I am 70 years old, that makes your tag mighty old!!
