My great aunt never paid much attention to what she ate, mostly fried foods and the cornbread she made every day. She was very southern. She lived unassisted until she was 92. Because of knee problems she needed a walker and some part time assistance. She lived in her own home until she had a stroke at 106, she died two years later. Exercising would never have occurred to her in her lifetime.

I think I'm at an "in-between" stage! In between the stage of needing either Clearasil or embalming fluid! When I looked in the mirror today, the need for embalming fluid seems to be winning!

That's what he told Marilyn! "I'm on my back more than you are!"

President Kennedy had a severe injury to his back due to his time spent in the Navy. He also had an autoimmune disease, which I cannot recall the name, however, it made his skin turn darker, as if he had a tan. He was in great pain most of the time. All hush hush, the American people did not know this. Different times, different times.

I think it was addison's disease. He was not a healthy person. He sat in a Boston rocker due to his bad back.

LOL - I CAN relate!!! My skin is going through puberty. Very embarrassing. Maybe I'll even get hair under my arms now. Not that I want it ; I just thought it weird I only had maybe 3 strands....I'd go for hair under my arms and a return to my nice complexion.

'v

I've seen that documented on the internet (so it must be true). A fatter face when young makes you look older and a fatter face when older makes you appear younger. The reverse of course is true - thin face young is more flattering - thin face older is more haggard. Ahhh, life is so full of choices. More weight, more residual estrogen, nicer personality. .................Less weight, estrogen gone quickly, meanie.

I have dealt with much much stress due to a very bad marriage when I was younger and I now have RSD as well as PTSD. I don't eat as well as I should especially since I am a Type 2 Diabetic.

When I am feeling stressed now - I purchase an On Demand comedy movie. Got to laugh. Good for the soul. Don't be naive to think that these celebs have not had work done to them. I will bet Christie Brinkley gets some nips and tucks done. She looks great but if I had her money, I could too. (grin) WE all could ladies. Love yourselves - take care of you the best that you can. If you suffer from chronic illnesses as I do - you need to pace yourself. Learn to say NO. Just do your best. I do use Lancome Products and Cetaphil cleanser only on my face. No soap. I know I now look my age but that's ok. I have been through a lot. Attitude is everything like the one poster mentioned. Throw some music on. Music puts me in a great mood especially from the 70's.

What does this all have to do with retirement though? (laughing) I guess I need to go back and re-read the OP's post??
What does it have to do with retirement? it was a memory test to see if you remember the original post.
