I'm 60. I smoke too much, I drink too much. I only eat right sometimes. Been that way for years. When ailments have arisen I've either just powered thru or found a work-around. That's not going to work anymore. I've got permanent puffy pads on the back of each hand. I can't make a fist. I can't play guitar or golf anymore. My ankles and knees are permanently swollen. I can't climb a small stairway without being out of breath and having to rest. I'm going to the hospital tomorrow morning to see what they can tell me. Like I said, I'm a little scared.
