Growing old is a ****

I know. It beats the alternative.

According to the interwebs, I may be suffering from greater trochanteric pain syndrome. Or I have a toomah.

How the hell do you hurt yourself standing up?

    What is scary when every single pain in your shoulder or back has you wondering if you are not ignoring a heart attack.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Bad news for you guys, as you get older the phantom pains get worse ( nothing like a good leg cramp in the middle of the night).. And the alternative really does suck..

  • I've been getting the leg cramp thing for years. After a day of fishing, I'm guaranteed to jump up in the middle of the night in excruciating pain.

    Me: I'm getting leg cramps
    My Doctor: Drink more water
    Me: Does beer/wine count
    Doctor: NO!!

    I used to have the same problem. The cramps are due to low potassium levels in the body.

    Have 2 bananas and some orange juice at breakfast and another 1 or 2 bananas at lunch or sometime in the afternoon. And make sure to drink plenty of water. This will guarantee no more leg cramps in the middle of the night after a day fishing.

    Maybe you all have cramps because your periods have synced up.
  • Hope your feeling better CG.

    It's both, but I just wanted to yank your chain a bit.

    All the best to both CG and you in the coming year.

    The saddest thing is worrying about sitting down too hard.

    I appreciated all feel better notes, regardless of granma. Don't what she would have to do with it anyway.

    OMG, happy syrup is almost gone!

    And to all those with oowies, get better.

    I hope you don't have to go outside for the next few days. I can't imagine it would be very good for your breathing in this **** cold.

    Even though he posted just over a half hour ago, I think we can safely assume creekguy has passed.

    Say hello to cappyduane, sweet soldier!

    Should we send flowers?

    ****, I don't even get to announce my own death on this sorry board. How brutal of Hextall to rob me of the final Obit.

    Send whiskey. Duh.
  • HextallHextall Senior Member Posts: 9,520 Senior Member
    Well, the good news is that anybody that had you in their 2015 death pool got a lot of points right at the buzzer.

    When did my condo turn into a long tunnel of light, and why is there an angel bathed in light casting dries in a spring creek at the end? Probably the syrup.
