When I hit 70 years old I found out that ‘Medicine’ does not care about people who are my age.
Meaning: Pain, inability to sleep, general anxiety and a host of other “age related” conditions are just things we have to tolerate….often without assistance.
I have found that alternative ‘medications’ must be explored.
My late wife used oil to aleviate her nighttime pains and I used grass to help with sleep. Without these aids nights would be unbearable and very long.
The best thing about retirement? Waking up when you’re rested. The worst thing? Not being able to rest.
