Time for me to hang it up.

Good afternoon.Well I got a lot of reading done. Did not spend too much time here. I play tennis this morning. It was fair.I am thinking of hanging up my racquet at the end of the year. I had enough.My life is going nowhere. Tired of shots and blood the only things keep me going. I have had it.going in full retirement at the end of the year. Tired of pain etc.This is a hell way to live. Tired of everything. Been thinking this while I was reading most of the afternoon. I am reading Rooster Bar by John Chrisham. So far so good.

So sorry to read that you sound so depressed. It is not like you, but I do understand how you feel. It is not easy to have some big health problems, I know all about it. Sometimes you feel like there is no hope but the day after, somehow, you get the energy to get going a while longer. Hang in there Alfredo, we love your writing and it does help us to know that there is such a nice guy out there.

We all face things that make us weary, those issues that never go away. Yet, we take a shower, dress, then put our shoes on, each and every morning. It's hard work, not knowing what today might bring! Enjoy your book, Fredo
I know that when your energy is gone, it robs you of your livelihood, but don't hang up your racket. Don't do it because when you are up you love to get out on the courts, and everyone has their good and bad days, and you're no different, you just really dislike your bad days.

Fredo we love your posts so even if you give up tennis for a while that is very understandable. I don´t feel much like writing either. Have to go now have a good night and enjoy the book which I have not yet read either.
A lot of people feel like what you are feeling currently. I hope that you will feel better. I think that it will not be a bad idea to take a break from tennis. I gave up a sport before to pursue my other hobbies. It worked out well for me. All the best.
I like novels by John Grishman. Don't lose heart and give up - did you have pain while playing tennis? If there was no pain and it doesn't make your health worse , I think you should continue. The activity and interaction should help to lift your spirits.
