    Re: I am genuinely curious ....

    I'm a mom of two teens, I have an extremely high stress job, I don't get much exercise since I started this job. I'm too tired to feel good. I'm almost 44, but I have a sick sense of humor and try to find something to laugh about everyday. I do sometimes think something is wrong with me (physically) but I am not going to a doctor to have them look at me like I'm crazy. My house and bills will be paid for if I die, and my kids will be set. Life happens.....we're all here for the ride. Might as well enjoy it as much as possible.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Re: I am genuinely curious ....

    I am not a person who enjoys physical activity, for the most part. I am 59 years old; my personality is never going to change. I do try to get fresh air, but that's about my mental housekeeping, not an attempt to be physically fit.

    I could be in better physical shape, as I well know. To do so, I'd have to give up cigarettes, meat, fat, sugar and chocolate. I choose not to, as the payoff just isn't there for me.

    I'm not surprised Dion is in the medical filed; I know no such person IRL who doesn't support euthanasia.

    Bottom line for me is, my "quality of life" is excellent in my opinion -- and who else's counts?

    You should move here, then. You can't even enter those Bocce Ball tournaments until you hit a certain age.

    Re: I am genuinely curious ....

    Generally I'm pretty happy with my health right now, both mentally and physically. Granted I'm only 28 so there isn't a lot to be concerned about yet...but I feel much healthier relative to my own past too.

    My diet has gotten a lot better over the past year, although it's still not where it needs to be. I used to eat fast food or takeout food for almost every meal, every day. Fortunately I don't do it as much anymore. I've made a lot of progress in reducing my meat consumption, and increasing my fruit and veggie consumption. It could be a lot better though; I still don't cook very often. It's taken me a year to get to where I am now, so I'm optimistic that in another year it will be more in line with my ideal diet.

    In terms of exercise, it's been kinda hit or miss. Up until last year I almost never set aside time to exercise. Since then I've gotten a gym membership and committed to going 4 times a week...although realistically it's only been more like 1-2 times a week. Maybe I'm doing better than I think though...living in DC, I get plenty of exercise walking from Point A to Point B without even really thinking about it as exercise.

    I think my mental health is a lot better than in the past. I'm much happier with my life now than I have been for most of my life. I started meditating, setting goals for myself, and journaling. I've also largely overcome my chronic social anxiety, which prevented me from finding a relationship for a long time. I've had more dates this year than in all the rest of my life.

    Alas, I voted no.
    You have a lot on your shoulders and yet you are already beginning to think of something you can do to change this. You are already heading in the right direction.

    Yes I am - because I can deal with my issues and not let them rule me.

    I have a limp, chronic leg and back pain, numb toes, and other health issues that effect me physically - but I'm fine. I know what they are, I have them under control through activity, diet and other issues.

    I could use more exercise. If you have lingerie and a few hours free, you can remedy that.

    There are men and women in the Kenyan village over 95 who can and so still dig furrows and otherwise participate in the family farm. Granted, that's kind of a different world.

    If my life is all about tending plants and hanging out with my family and friends at 95, I'll certainly stick around.

    Uh, Gipper?

    Dion is a man.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that............just don't let RadicalModerate catch you asking for lingerie, or he'll revoke you're "okay to have sex" card.

    LOL.
