    I got a photo taken yesterday to renew my passport. I have to send in my previous passport that has a picture of me taken 10 years ago. I feel good, I feel healthy and I am physically active but, gosh, looking at my two pictures I wondered what has happened to me! Is this what people see when they look at me (not how I see myself) but sadly I had to say 'yes, it is'.

    I wasn't aware until it happened to me that as the feet age toenails grow up not out. I now have one of these. It's not painful but I dislike it.

    The past couple of weeks have been absolute hell for me. Every single joint and muscle hurts. Tylenol barely touches it and I can't take NSAIDS. Next week I start to figure out which doc to see first. I don't want to be a downer on Thanksgiving, but I understand why people don't want to go on........
    In spite of the pain, I have cleaned the house and made 4 things to take to our get-together. This year I'm thankful it wasn't at my house!!
    I can collapse tomorrow..........then find the energy for christmas. I cry a lot.

    Cathy, Christmas will come again next year. Only do what is comfortable, delegate if possible or don't do it this year. Find some small things that are special and easy even if it is just cocoa and a movie at home. Try to pamper yourself with wearing soft pjs whenever possible, warm socks, hot bath or shower, and hot tea (or drink of choice).

    Spend only a little time at the get together and, if asked to help, tell them you dont have the energy or ability. Take it easy.

    Hope the doctors can find you some relief.

    I am so sorry you don't feel well. The holidays often magnify things and not in a good way.

    I also am very sorry to hear about all the pain you're experiencing, Cathy. I hope you find a doctor who can help. Have you been to a pain management specialist?

    56 here. On the topic post, I had to scan to see if I had already posted as the title is so me. I am glad to hear so many of us have similar feelings. I am nearing if not there the point of that my body will never look that way again I struggled for a few years. As silly as this sounds to me so it will to everyone else theses are my old age creeping thoughts: * I have struggled each Monday since I was 14 with "This week is Different", I will change my diet Yes diet and exercise are big in my life. GEE when will I leave that baggage on the side of the river and move on??? *This morning I looked at my hands and thought well Mom is always with me, as these are her hands!!! *I find myself saying what I want to accomplish before..insert date or age The Bucket List. *I don't want to end up like..insert name. *You can't take it with you. *** OMG the Back when I was young statement!
