To be sure, there's difficulties -- I have an incurable bone disease that inflicts constant pain, a couple of old injuries that flare up with the weather, and a back that's tired of labor but must be put to the task nightly -- all that notwithstanding, what I really appreciate about growing old is not only do I learn how to deal with those particular issues, but that in dealing with them each day I learn more about how to deal with the vicissitudes of life in general.

Especially with my osteonecrosis and its chronic pain, I've learnt that "mind over matter" is not simply a catchphrase, but an honest truth. I've learnt how to deal with the uncontrollable, in that sense, and I am still mindful enough to traduce the lessons to other, more abstract, parts of my life.

I'm grateful I've never had to battle cancer, and don't much care if grey takes over my scalp (it hasn't yet, good luck with that, you bastard!), but most of all I'm grateful to be able to find lessons where I least expect them.

Sorry you have to deal with that. One thing getting older does do for a lot of people, it allows you time enough to "know thy self" and come to terms with what it means for you. That can be a great gift to yourself. I also like the part where "I just don't give 2 fucks anymore".

how did I miss this jem? Heatheness, this reminds me of this couple celebrating their 50th anniversary.
They decided to do everything jsut as it was on the honeymoon. Traveled to Paris, booked the same room, and even had naked room service breakfast.
Her husband is reading the morning paper and she says,
"after all these years, my nipples still get hot for you"
He looks over the paper and replies,
" One of them is in your coffee and the other is in the oatmeal"

I told my doctor he'd need a gun to get me to go back for another one!

My doctor urged me to get one.

I told him to shove it up his ass. Drinking Beverage

RE: Wrinkles & Grey Hair Thread
im 32 and no greys yet. i have found the occasional white hair in my beard but those could be leftover blondes from before my hair mysteriously changed to brown. hard to tell. no baldness though. ive got a shitload of curly hobbit-like hair. no aches or pains to speak of. i recently had a daughter though, so im sure all of this will go downhill soon.
