    Top ten Perks of reaching 50, being over 60, or heading towards 80

    1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

    2. No one expects you to run, -anywhere.

    3. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac

    4. There is little left to learn 'the hard way'.

    5. Things you buy now won't wear out.

    6. You can eat supper at 4:00pm.

    7. You no longer see speed limits as a challenge.

    8. You can quit holding your stomach in no matter who walks in the door.

    9. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

    10. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

    11. You can do your own Christmas/birthday shopping --- they'll be surprises because you won't remember what you bought.

    Stay safe

      Those are great! Thanks for sharing!
      I am not a medical professional. I do not give medical advice. In all cases, I urge you to talk to your Dr. about your treatment options.

      D/Xed 2003 with IC. Also have the co-existing condtions of VV, Vulvadynia, Lupus, Fibro, GERD, CPP, Endo, & Adhesions, and Depression

      Meds: Estrogel (due to total Hyster)
      The meds r/xed by my Pain Dr. from the Pain Clinic are as follows: Morphine ER and IR, Baclofen, and Lyrica and Seroquel (used off-label as a sleeping pill, but it also helps with depression)

      (I listed my meds in case someone reading this has been told like so many ICers that Drs dont r/x pain meds for IC.) I want you to know that there ARE tons of us who are also dealing w/this disease and the pain and many of us ARE on pain meds.)

        going to #9, it paid off for me somewhere between dxs with the IC and heart condition.... someone told me that between me and someone else they know that they are not looking forward to being 50....(apparently her friend is sick also.)
