Getting old is no fun

Bookmark and Share
Lately several people have expressed the fact that your mind will lie to you.
It thinks you're 40, when you may actually be 71 as I am.
What a pain.  Literally.
Each morning I have to stretch my legs almost before I get to the coffee pot.  My legs shrink or something as I sleep, I guess.  But when I wake up there isnt much that doesn't hurt, until I have moved around a bit.
I have to talk to myself all day, a running narrative of whatever I am doing just to stay focused. And still I can't remember whether I took a pill or not 5 minutes later.
I don't get enough sleep.  I feel in such a hurry to accomplish a lot of things while I still can. I fugure I may have at least ten more years in this realm, so I am busy leaving lots of marks on the planet, like paintings and other projects.  This week I have been tossing lots of things I don't need and never will use, but unfortunately, in the process I think I threw away several credit cards that I now have to call and get replaced.  Yes, I seem to do something like that every day.  I spend a great deal of my day looking for things.
