Subject: RE: BS: Indignities of Aging: the Sordid Truth
Excerpt from a HS friend (my age, we made it to our late 50's!?!?!?) always much "fitter" than I, via email:
"....at our "advanced ages" my physician suggested that I drive no more than 8 hours a day to maintain 1) sanity; 2) body. I followed his advice on the way down to FL last year; however, on the way back I wanted to make time so I drove from FL to Chi in two 11-hour days. I will NEVER do that again. I was wrecked for a week-– and that was before I pinched the nerve in my back! [So-- when planning a trip--] ... take your time and arrive healthy...."
How to tell if you are still doing purty much OK--
Are you IN the nursing home, or visiting the nursing home?
Are you toting an instrument... or planning on playing that piano or house guitar that's already there?
Are you changing someone else's Depends, or your own? (Or are you NOT changing your own nor asking for help?
When it turns out it was NOT a fart, do you know that on your own.... or do you need someone else to tell you?
