About this aging thing….

I’d like to Opt Out.

Seriously.  Why was I so sure I would dodge this?   I remember turning 40 and thinking, “Hey, this isn’t so bad. I don’t look or feel any different than I did in my late 30s.”  I kinda cruised through 41, 42, 43 and 44…

Then came 45.

  • My gallbladder quit and had to come out.
  • Cartwheels hurt. (so I stopped)
  • My back issues increased (degenerative disc?!)
  • My endurance vanished (can’t work out)
  • At 48
    • I started to need more sleep and never got it.
    • My colon rebelled. (Diverticulits)
    • My back REALLY went on strike
    • I had to stop riding (read, see my shrink)
  • At 51
    • I had to have colon surgery and my left ovary removed
      • I got Pulmonary Embolisms
      • I got Pancreatitis
    • That tossed me into menopause
      • Hot flashes (how’s 20 a day sound?)
      • Getting up 4 times a night to pee
      • Tired. All. The. Time.
      • No attention span.
      • No endurance.
      • Back really rebelled: can’t hike, bike or walk long distances.
      • Wrinkles.
      • My no ass is now all in my waist.
      • I am five eight and 140

I think we should all stop aging physically at 40 and drop dead at 90.  Perfect solution.
