I Started to Fall Apart When I Hit 50
At 51 it was cataracts, then high blood pressure (tablets), then underactive thyroid (tablets), then osteoarthritis, then gall stones, then diabetes 2 (no tablets yet) and now retinopathy (to do with the D2).
Don't get me wrong I am not moaning or complaining, in fact it makes me so much more sympathetic to those who are really ill, but it does bring in to question the life style I led.
I have never been a drinker, nor have I ever smoked or touched drugs but I am guilty of not eating a healthy diet and I have always hated sport or exercise of any kind.
When I was a girl people said 'you'll pay for that later' as I rammed yet another chocolate bar down my neck and ate loads of sugar rich food. I just laughed as I expect all the youngsters reading this will do. Old age seems so far away but it creeps up quicker than you think!
