    Natural deterioration of health is expensive, even if you keep yourself in shape.

    I said the deterioration was free, not getting it treated.

    Natural Deterioration = free

    Botox, surgery, meds, etc.. = $$$

    Well there's nothing to be done about it. Also for those of us lucky to have public health care the costs are substantially reduced.

    I understand your witticism. But to be serious, natural deterioration of health costs you plenty, and not in medical bills alone.

    It can cost you loss of strength, stamina, mobility, mental sharpness, loss of good vision and hearing, loss of activities you enjoy. For some guys it also means loss of hair, maybe some teeth, and perhaps some sexual enjoyment. You may even lose your job over it.

    So in those ways declining health can be very expensive to us in non-monetary ways, as well as in actual money. Trust me, I'm paying the price right now. icon_sad.gif

    Ever since my 20's I've always thought it was unfair to work and save all your life just to pay it all out in health expenses when approaching retirement.

    On the flip side, the experiences gained in life are worth the expense if you had a lot of fun. icon_cool.gif

    The loss of strength mobility etc... are all natural losses. You cant expect to be as strong, mobile, etc...until you die (naturally). The human body is only going to go on for so long and wear and tear play into that.

    Thank you. Your gesture is appreciated. I'll inform my arthritis that it's got it all wrong.

    I'm 14 years older than paulflexes, who began this cheerful little topic; and I have to agree - the physical aging process is no picnic. Even if you eat right, exercise, don't drink don't smoke (what DO you do?) and all that, there are things you just can't prevent or help.

    But, having recently ordered my first senior discount meal at Denny's, I can say that so far, being older beats being dead. And a lot of my friends didn't live to see 55 (or 35, for that matter).

    So I say, keep taking care of your body (and mind) as best you can, and don't waste time and energy fearing the reaper. Enjoy your life.

    I have arthritis in my left shoulder and L4 & 5 disks.

    Yet I can still deadlift over 400 lbs.

    Fuck arthritis. It can kiss my ass. icon_cool.gif

    I get those discounts & perks now. The handicapped parking space is one of the best. But you won't find my car in the handicapped space in front of a Denny's.
