I Must Be Getting Old

As of late I have a pain everywhere you can think of. At least that is the way I feel. Suddenly my empathy for my parents has greatly increased. They often like to see who can "out pain" the other. I have begun to think if this is what it feels like at 41, then I'm not sure I can make it to 60 or more.

First it was my back, which seems to now be on the mend. Then my ankles and knees were extremely stiff and sore especially in the mornings. When walking I have felt like an "old man" but once I got going the stiffness/pain seems to go away. So I thought if I am going to start feeling the pains of old age that maybe I need to start taking the supplements that my parents take. I broke down on my last Costco trip and purchased some glucosamine. I've been taking it for a week and it seems that my joints are responding much better. I hope I'm not jinxing myself here but I think I'm onto something!
