Many of you keep talking about the inevitable weakening of your bodies  ( strength, mental, immune system) Saying no exercise or suppliments can help or delay the decline. Photos of Sylvester Stallone below show him more cut/ripped at 73 than when he did Rocky in his 30's. Never too late to start but it's up to you. Exercise and take HGH (Human growth hormone) or Testosterone boosters to increase strenth by helping your body produce more HGH/Testosterone naturally or go full bore and take the actual shots of HGH or Testosterone available at many pharmacies here or at a hormone replacement clinic in Pattaya.

He's rich and probably still has groupies.

Some of us don't have a life worth living once we pass 70 or so. 

 

All the options for suicide involve some risk of injury to others ( jumping, crashing ) or don't guarantee success. I'm holding out for legal euthanasia. The government can't keep supporting all the oldies as the numbers increase, so hopefully will be forced to allow it.

The extremely high cost of euthanasia drugs has come from the EU countries raising the price so to deter the US from executing prisoners. Your not going to see countries making them redily available due to religious views and or laws on their books. Stallone and others may be rich but I have been taking HGH boosters for awhile can order online and I have bought IGF-1 sprays here in Thailand (about $30 a month) and that alone ( with exercise) has kept my energy levels high and I am phyisically strong. I am 72 not cut like Stallone yet but I'm working on it and I am not taking the shots as he does but even those are onky like $125---$150 from pharmacies I have talked with---- a little more at the Hormone replacement clinic in Pattaya.

Back in the UK I didn't have a life living after I passed 40 or so.

Age 50 I discovered Thailand, then realised the life I had in the UK hadn't been worth living after age 25.

 

I've had more 'life worth living' in SEA after age 50, than I ever managed in the western world at any age.

Funny thing is, I didn't know how worthless and miserable my life in the UK was, until after I had left.

I always though sex (averaging) once a month was about as good as it could get.

How wrong I was!

 

And thinking about the rich and famous guys in the west, do they really have it any better?

How many have lost fortunes (Robin Williams) to women that probably limited their sex after the marriage (same as ours did) or got divorce raped (Tiger Woods) when they tried for a bit more than their 'once a month' wife was prepared to offer. Not to mention all the guys (Harvey Weinstein & Bill Crosby) that were made to pay later.

I'm happy for you that you have something worth living for. Prostate cancer destroyed my sex life, a bad woman destroyed my finances, not getting pension in Thailand so I had to leave destroyed what little life I enjoyed, and now I'm just hanging about in the waiting room. No family so there is nothing to keep me on planet earth.

Nothing terribly horrible with my life- fairly good social security system, though the cost of rents exceeds the pension.

Just don't have anything to give life meaning, since can't afford to do much.

Most exciting thing I do now is eat sugary food and come on TVF.

Similar story to you, except that I stuffed it up by getting married. Biggest mistake I ever made. I did live with a woman for a few years in my 30s, and ended up with nothing. Had to start again.

Where it all went wrong was thinking Thai women were different, and to be specific that the one I married was different.

Renting is the way to go, and when they get stroppy and think they own one, move on.

Too late now, damage has been done, and like I said I'm really up to the gills with vitamins and supplements. I appreciate your advice, but at 77 I'm not sure if a couple of extra vitamins or different supplements are either going to prolong or improve my life. Wouldn't say my health is perfect, but it's probably a lot better than some.

As I mentioned before the rotator cuff can be reconditioned she is 7 years older than you and still cranking them out.

Reconditioned as in having surgery? No thanks, I'll try and enjoy what time I have left and hopefully not face any lingering illnesses, just take one day at a time.

No and I have never mentioned surgery in any of my previous posts. I  did mention certain suppliments that can allieviate pain and rebuild muscles/tendons and various theraputic exercises that can strenthen and give renewed flexability to damaged joints. You hurt both  rotator cuffs by trying to force a pushup instead of seeking a trainer ( if just starting to try and get back in condition) who would have given you exercises to first  help your flexability and then improve your strength thru assisited push ups thru various machines available at most gyms.

Exercise is the best way to go for rotator cuff injury repair, many surgeons will avoid surgical interventions especially on older people. Light resistance training, rest, diet, all help physical and psychological health

I had rotator cuff injuries to both shoulders - fell off a ladder onto a concrete floor, landing on my shoulder to avoid hitting my head.  The next day, while I relaxed in a hammock, it broke (!) and I fell onto a concrete floor on my other shoulder.....

 

Both shoulder injuries were painful and limited my physical movement.

 

Rather than surgical treatment, I began to exercise and to GENTLY stretch my shoulders through careful exercise.

 

Today. several years later, I have zero pain from either old injury.  My range of shoulder movement is about 95% of the norm and I'm aware of what exercises NOT to do which would overstretch those old injuries.

 

The point being - IMHO, thinking you are too old to exercise or because you have previous injuries is absolutely the wrong attitude to take.  Ignore those who tell you to 'take it easy'.  Get out of the house, walk gently, move your arms (gently), slowly bring your body back to the state it was in your 30's and 40's.  It can be done, it won't happen overnight, it shouldn't require surgery or expensive medications.

 

It DOES require a positive outlook 🙂

But they will one day and you will already be used to the aches and have forgotten them. Swings and.....

 

I'm still stiff in the morning, just in a different way!

Does not matter how you try to deal with it, we all end up in a box on our own in the end, then they burn you! 😪

I find whining helps, by releasing certain health promoting endorphins.
