I was first DX in Oct 2006. I tried swimming, water arobics and continuing to walk, but they all wear me out. I never liked swimming anyway.:-D I volunteer at Church, in the community and for family. I don't know if that works as a hobby, but depending on how things progress, phone calls or visits. or letters or emails to shut ins. There are international web site pen pals, even to those who are blind or deaf. Also letters to service men and women, walking/or or wheeling for raising funds, for ALS Association or other groups may also be helpful and rewarding. I also took up piano. (We have had a piano for about 17 years.) I have trouble with sustaining some cords.
I hope this was helpful. I always worked (education) and loved it and that was my hobby too, so now I am exploring all sorts of possiblities that never occured to me before. I wish you joy. Take Good Care, Peg
p.s. This is an excellent thread. I just remembered I have a doll house kit my husband gave me in 1985, when I finished my Masters. He said, "Now you will have time." it is still in the box and my hands could still work it enough. And now I have time. i used to collect doll house furniture too. That might make a great "hobby" for me. Thanks, Peg
