Old Age Doesn`t Come Alone
A dear friend of mine passed those sage words along to me not long ago.
Boy was she right! I have noticed that there are things in my house that were not there fifteen years ago. They appeared slowly, one by one, and so I never noticed them until those words from my friend popped up the other day. I was making the bed and it hit me.
Old age surely does not come alone; it has brought these things with it so far—
Mister now sleeps with a pillow between his legs to ease an aching hip.
I sleep on a wedge to help my GRD.
I now wear these to help with an arm-length problem I was having.
Yep, purple pills to cut down that stomach acid.
A corn heating pad to be placed on Mister`s aching hip as needed.
Because regular coffee fires up my reflux and keeps Mister and me up past ten.
Daily just as a precaution for something I didn`t think I needed to precaution for when I was twenty.
For those who are now worried about blood pressure.
To keep middle-aged colons happy.
For those of us suffering from CRS.
I`m sure there are lots more but I can`t seem to remember what they are….
