You often hear people say that their bones ache when different cold fronts start to come through, rain, snow, etc. The Struggle is Real with Arthritis. I sometimes ache down to my fingernails. My co-worker's tell me the same thing. We all are aging together and thankfully can understand and encourage one another through or minor aches and pains.
I am finding out that age really has nothing to do with the aches and pains of the "beast" I call Arthritis. I know some very young people that suffer from these annoying aches as well. I just think the older we get our tolerance is more difficult!
Becoming a Senior Citizen hasn't been the most pleasant experience. I need more AIR CONDITIONER people! I don't think that we ever need to turn on the heater here at work. Why can't men experience hot flashes like women? I holler out down the hall frequently...."I NEED AIR" I tell them you can put on a jacket but even if you were butt naked you would still be hot! Probably not the best thing to say at work.....but it gets the point across!
Another thing that I have experienced while becoming a Senior Citizen is going to bathroom a thousand times a day. Well at least it feels like that much! Although when I was young, my nickname from my sweet daddy was Prissy Gayle (without the r in it) Back when I was a kid, you could ride in the back of a pick-up truck. Daddy took us on a trip to Louisiana to see my brother, he had me and my sister ride in the back of the pickup camper with my two older boy cousins. Daddy knew that I would have to go to the bathroom several times so he decided to bring along an old Folgers Coffee can with us. Of course, I had to go to the bathroom in that can!
My older cousin reminds me of that story every time I see him! The Struggles Are Real!
P.S. To the young ones: if you see your grandparents saving Folger's cans.................RUN!
