And Piss on anyone who makes fun! Young Punks feel so arrogant when they see those of us who have outlived so many of our generation but continually fight such physical problems as our bodies begin break down from just "wear" if nothing else. Don
Old age? Schmold age! You aren't old until you.....BELIEVE YOU ARE! I am 60 but still am young. Yes, I have to work harder to maintain the body. Use anti-aging serum to keep skin young. Read & write on Hubpages to keep mind young. I am FIGHTING THIS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!
It is one thing to say, "I will fight old age." It is another thing to have the knowledge to do so. It is quite another thing after that to have the discipline to follow through. For instance, I really think as we get older the processes within the stomach and intestines slow down. We, (with older stomachs) can't handle the amount of food we have been used to handling throughout our lives. This is the problem in a nut shell: The intestines do not clear out as rapidly and we overeat. The intestines weigh heavily on the organs and the blood flow throughout the body weakens. Everything starts to either swell or shrivel.
No. Have the discipline to eat less. Lay on a slant board, (head lower than feet,) every day to relive the effects of gravity on the internal organs. Exercise gently often: yoga, walking/hiking, golf, etc. But remember, we can't go overboard with exercise anymore. Swimming is good. Probably the best. Think about it. Be good to your body and it'll be good to you.
Think age is normally the main reason. I'm the same its nothing to be ashamed off. Thank god for tena. However if in drink water regularly it does calm it even stop it. Child birth also is a cause as it weakens the bladder sometimes pelvic floor is recommended. Then there is a possible infection that can be treated.The most dramatic reason is a vaginal prolapse but that's in the worse case. Go to the doctors I'm sure they will help your situation. I just learned to live with it.
Or we could all go into elderly aging with an open mind to perhaps , wear brightly colored striped knee high tube socks , checkered Bermuda shorts , wife beater tee's , driving a golf cart around and around the block while drinking martini's ,in a sun visored red tinted hat , a poodle in the passenger seat and all the while screaming obscenities at the young and old ladies on the block ?.
I keep telling my daughter that ,that is my retirement plan , to move in with her and act like that ! She's a nurse and thinks it would be good to "take care of me when I get old ", wait till she has to bail me out !
