"Gummer's" Lament!

This thread is for all us Old Farts! For those of us who for whatever reason, often wake up (...or go to bed) to various minor to severe aches, pains, injuries, chronic conditions, whatever, whether from shredding to hard, illness or just plain old years of abuse & neglect. ....seeing as how we seem to have a fairly large number of "Mature" riders? I imagine this might be a fairly frequent occurrence for many of us.

I thought I would start a thread that would allow gummer's like us, (...me ) to post about our Ol' achin' bones without having to muck up the "Today I Hate" thread so much!

My intention is we could us it as a way to list, compare, complain, whine, cry, commiserate, mope, etc. on all those chronic, intermittent, aggravating, niggling, large or small physical issues that might be plaguing us due to our somewhat,... advanced,..? years!

Better still,.. Maybe we can use this thread as a way to draw inspiration for each other for finding solutions, recovering, maybe just getting advice and support for help in muddling thru, as we go about getting out and continuing to ride and show our dedication to "The Love of Shred!" Despite (...for myself anyway,) often experiencing debilitating pain or even just having to carry a medicine cabinet with us wherever we go!

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!

I suffer every night from insomnia, and from chronic back pain, but that is due to breaking my back and still waiting for an operation, the responsible party has admitted liability, that was 3 years ago, and 3.5 years after the initial accident, and still no settlement reached, and still no agreement on what op they are going to pay for...

Well it sucks, but i still do what i want and just take a handle of pills to counter the pain for now...!

Roll on the lawyers getting there act together...!!!

It definitely doesn't help that i am old, well i certainly feel it, i wonder if i would suffer the same way if i was young... Hehe.
Strange though that it is worse int he summer, the winter i have "some" drive because i can snowboard everyday, otherwise i just get down and think about the winter... Haha

Honestly, the biggest complaint I have about aging is the loss of endurance/fitness. I hate getting out of breath doing something that would have barely made me go above idle when I was young (at least that's how I remember it )

I hate how long it takes for little bumps and bruises to go away. Roll an ankle and you're still walking with a limp 10 days later, jam a finger and it will stay swollen like a sausage for a week. And hangovers? Let just say that when it comes to first chair/last call, I can do one or the other, but not both.

I'm looking forward to being able to walk normally or even jog again someday. When I blew up my helmet, I also jacked my pelvis up in that it's twisted and tilted, and then walked on it for like two full weeks before seeing a chiro. We're making progress, but it's slow.

I hate the fact I sprained my wrist having sex with a 25 year old the other night. Does that count?

Oh and The Ritis, yeah fuck Arthritis. This shit is just getting worse by the season. You would figure at 31 I wouldn't be having to deal with it everyday.
