Default What do you hate about getting older?

I'm up in the middle of the night.....I've got a pain in my hand and I have no idea what caused it!

When you were young you usually (unless you were) knew what happened to make that pain......

......what peeves you about aging?




oh ya, and NO, it wasn't because of either.

Stuff just doesn't heal very fast anymore. Minor scrapes / cuts / bruises.

It's annoying.

I hate not being able to do the athletics I used to. I canít even run anymore due to bad knees. Iím relegated to cycling and lecturing motorists on my superiority.

Arthritis, extra vertbra in my lo back, L6 spondalytis is what the Doc's call it, it's why I not .mil background....one month and one day Aug '66 Ft. Bragg basic and outtathere....still could have flown a desk though....
so this shitty skeleton made of poorly constructed joints from reprocessed rusty old American junkyard parts forced me outta the DC region/Md. to Florida some 20 years ago....it got me about 16 years of relief, but now it's back in spades...every damn joint, toes to noes......loss of dextarity in fingers too....
then most recently loosing teeth, and of course that freeking tummy crap with that stupid mesh I had fixed for a belly button hernia, and sure enough I got problems with IT now.... and glasses, can't find anything decent...have to try again due to license exam next year.....

Stress, not sleeping well, back ache, minor ailments bring me down when I use to just tough it out.

All those sports injuries from when I was a kid are coming back to haunt me. Shoulder, ankle, elbow, back....you name it, it hurts. I can't remember the last time I bounced outta bed without some kind of pain. Seems like we're all in the same sinking boat!

Reading glasses????...what's up with that? I can't do any small work without them now. Distance is great with the new lenses but close up sucks.

I guess a hundred years ago we'd all be pushing up daisies, so I'm thinking it's better than that alternative.

That's what the Heinekens are for!

When I used to drink one of my favourite expressions was...."I drink to make people interesting!"....so true in a lot of cases, especially when they're buying food and drink in your establishment. Feigning interest in inane banter is very trying.

When you're drinking, always wrap yourself in Bubble Wrap. Old people usually break bones when they fall.
