    Getting Old is Starting to really suck

    2 years ago, I went to the Eye Dr, and had to get Bifocals. Since then my night vision has gotten pretty bad and I can barely drive and night, and now even when wearing my glasses I can barely read whats on my phone again!!!!

    Not to mention that my hair is more salt than pepper these days...... This really is getting to suck.

    I can't figure out how they stick a finger up your butt and have both hands on your shoulder during the annual c/o.

    Testicultz warts come from holding frogs and letting them pee on you.

    There is a reason why I changed from a annual to semi annual physical. I hear women complain about a mammogram, well that ain't nothing compared to getting a physical once you past 40!!!

    They cry about getting their goodies squeezed, but that's nothing compared to the doc sticking his finger.....

    As if doctors don't stick their finger up women's butts to check things, too . . . happens to everyone, we just don't talk about it.

    At least you don't get the pleasure of the stirrup chair and the cold metal specula (google that one!) every time you visit the doctor.

    And don't scoff at mammograms. They don't bother me too much, but they can be painful sometimes. The technician has to place the booby in just the right position and then the machine squishes it to almost flatness in two different directions.




    Guess you haven't gotten to the age of . . . colonoscopy!

    poor eyesight? Gray hair? Speculums? Childs play!

    Who's the sadistic bastard that came up with Rubber Band Ligation for hemorrhoids? Immediately couldn't tell if I was going to throw up or pass out. Couldn't drop a deuce for 3 days let alone walk.

    But yeah...getting old sucks.
