They say: “Age is something that doesn’t matter – unless you’re a bottle of wine.”
“You are only as old as you think you are.” But if you wake up every morning with a new ache and/or pain, yes age is interfering with your golden years.
I feel like a brand new person since my Primary Care Doctor finally gave me a referral to a Rheumatologist for my pain. Now, why didn’t he send me there 9 months ago? The Specialist said I suffered in pain needlessly. Major improvement within days but I still have not received the results of the Specialist’s blood work taken. At least, I now have movement in my arms. So grateful. Now, if he can’t get rid of my swollen hands and feet, life will be good again!
I’m looking forward to getting back to the gym soon. I miss my Silver Sneakers classes and friends that I have made at the gym.
We seniors all try to embrace new opportunities and seek new learning and to try and stay motivated and lively at heart. But, in fact, we can’t do most of the things we used to do. We do have the wisdom and experience we have acquired over the years which is a plus.
It is so important to keep your body lively through healthy diet and exercise. I still cook all my meals, that way I have full control of the ingredients in my food choices.
I try to stay in touch with the world via modern technology, that way; the world will stay in touch with me!
Time to pour the wine!
