    Rythm of Life

    For some of us old farts the percussion section is the weekly rattling of the meds as we sort out our next weeks existance. I often enjoy the random patterns they make before closing them up. This week I went and grabbed the camera first.

    What are the metronomes in your life?

    And if I may quote the Rolling Stones; "What a drag, it is, getting old!"

    BUT... it beats the alternative!

    I'm on Aciphex for my acid reflux, and Flonase for my seasonal allergies.

    Now, I take a multivitamin everyday, along with Ginseng, Gingko Biloba, and Saw Palmetto, but those are all optional.

    This may rapidly become an old geezer post! I can hear the twenty-somethings complaining already...

    Yeah, and they'd have a point. I had intended it more as "what are the routines in your life that you usually ignore photographically but maybe shouldn't" sort of thing.

    I guess they'll have to put up with us old farts nattering on and never saying what we mean too.

    Now, now...
    Some of us "youngsters" have problems, too. You want a list of ailments? I bet you don't, but here it is anyway. And keep in mind, I'm a poor boy- health insurance is a dream I hope one day will come true.
    Both shoulders: torn rotator cuffs, right shoulder is so bad I can't sleep on it. Right knee: brace worn daily for 6 months now, pain keeps me awake some nights. Right wrist: carpal tunnel. Sternum: car accident separated it, never fully healed. Back: multiple car accidents/whiplash-- do the math. All joints: snap, crackle, pop all morning, every morning. Insomnia: no sleep 'till midnight or later most nights, can't stay asleep, so I wake up between 2:00 and 4.30 every day, and then I'm wide awake. I get migraines randomly- the real ones that end my day if they happen.. you want real pain, try a migraine- like getting creamed in the head with a baseball bat constantly for hours and hours.... Painful cavities that three daily brushings don't help... so much for flouride....
    But don't get me wrong- all this crap doesn't slow me down. I just ignore the pain and keep going. I couldn't stand being stuck at home 'cause it all hurts too much- I'd go crazy. So I stay just as active as anyone else. You learn to live with constant pain and fatigue. It just takes a little more effort than some people are willing to put forth. But to me it's important to not let little things like a knee that feels like it's full of broken glass slow me down. I'll rest when I'm dead!

    Yes, I'm afraid we got sidetracked quickly. Sorry about that. I guess it's a geezer trait. ;-)

    Here is a snap shot of a day in my life. One meeting after another.

    Health department meetings, environmental health meetings, on-site meetings, program specialist meetings, bio-terrorism meetings, EPI meetings, communication meetings and the list goes on. Some days I feel like I spend my life in meetings. :-O

    No matter how many pills end up in that box, or chest, or trunk for that matter, keep your spirits, keep your sense of humor, and try your hardest to keep doing what you love.

    That's a good idea Nat. I'm going to take a week off starting tomorrow for a dose of my own heart medicine - riding crooked roads in Arkansas with friends from all over the US, Canada, and Mexico. See you when I get back.

    Outdoorsman -- you mentioned migraines. This is the main reason for my daily medicine. I have to say, that if one has not experience migraines, one has absolutely no idea how excruciating it can be. This is not a headache. This is your skull crushing in. It's a sharp needle being poked slowley through your eye. The dizzyness, the inability to breathe correctly, the profuse sweating, the vomitting. It's not a headache.

    A year or so ago, I ended up in the hospital for four days because my migraine caused me to lose my ability to speak. I mean, I'd try to say the words, but garble would come out. I could think them, but I couldn't formulate them. How much of a freak did I feel like trying to say to my wife: "No...Can...Can't...Speak...Doctor..." Imagine her panick.

    Now I know what it must feel like to be in a coma, or have brain damage that affects your speech, but not your ability to process. It was the most frustrating and frightening thing I ever went through.

    Then there are the strange looks when you tell your boss that you can't go on for the day because you have a migraine

    OK. That's my medical gripe for the year!

    ANYTHING I DESIRE ;) Now do you really think I would post an image of me in my birthday suit?

    SHAMPOO MOHAWK could be done ;)

    I will try to remember this weekend(can't take the image myself) to have Michelle blast my shampoo mohawk.

    BTW...I haven't really made one in years, but I used to EVERYDAY when I WAS a kid( still act the part)

    my life is VERY MUNDANE....... wake up, drive to work, work, drive home, get cumfy, surf, sleep, surf, go out, surf, sleep, bathroom, sleep..... all over again ;)

    Try spending every weekend waiting for the big bad wolf in the form of one hurricane or another to come and blow your house down.

    Oh well. At least I don't have to deal with snow. When it stops blowing, I can always drop the boat in the water and go fishing or drag some lobsters up to throw on the barbeque.

    I know you younger guys can't relate, but one of these days you'll know what I'm talking about.

    Interesting post Chunk, thanks!

    You don't play around, do you?!!!

    That is the GOOD STUFF!

    Hmmm, now you're wondering how I know? Because as I've gotten older, I've slowed down. Recharge time takes longer. And the wife likes seconds every now and then. So I got some samples. My observations.

    Levitra works. Does exactly what it says it does. I'd have to give it a 10.

    Viagra works like it's on steroids! It's an 11 on a ten point scale.

    Cialis is works like Viagra that's been turbo charged. It rates a 12!

    Now, here's a little secret for you. Ginseng and Gingko Biloba. I started taking those one week ago, and I may never take another prescription pill again! I still have some of the samples left, and I don't anticipate ever needing to take them. Trust me, this stuff works!
