no one told me it would make me nervous that my doctor is older than me and might not be there for me as long as I'd like.

doesn't matter how long you spend on the toilet squeezing out all the pee you can, you bundle up, get out in the cold, you're ready to pee again.

something somebody did tell me about getting old:

you tend to walk with your feet closer together when you're on slippery surfaces in danger of falling, even though spreading your feet apart actually makes you more stable.

even knowing this, i have to stop and force myself to do it.
Thanks from coke

it is common it seems for old people to instruct their children or grandchildren to never ever no matter what put them into a nursing home. I find that a selfish attitude that can create great distress as the older person becomes incapable of caring for themselves.

hopefully at 59 I'm still a long way from this myself, but I have already instructed my wife and daughter: whatever you need to do fine, my only rule is no not let me die of thirst.
Thanks from coke

Friends going day after day...like leaves falling from a tree. Another one went last week...his wife heard him fall in the bathroom at 3:00am...stone dead. 62. I guess we're all on the same escalator...being polite ("You first!") and trying our best to walk backwards on it!
Thanks from coke

My mother-in-law once said, 'if i can't feed myself, let me starve'.
She has since had back surgery, went to a rahabilitation center, was then put back in the hospital with septic shock, (had to redo the surgery to remove the infection) and is now headed to her second rehab.
She has been through so much, and was so strong and independent. Now she is weak, and relies on everyone.
Needless to say, i have mixed feelings about getting old. But diet and EXERCISE are the two components that will make it easier.
Thanks from coke

diet and exercise, ya can postpone, and that's a good thing. go for it.

the endstory, however, is inevitable, eventually everything breaks down.
