Ok, the Mrs has Scoilosis and had spine surgery that stretched her torso 3 inches , she has 3 metal rods in her back.

I echo the Tempurpedic endorsement! Mattress is incredible. Every time I lay on it after a long day, it feels amazing. It is pricy, but it is so much better than any other mattress on the market today.

Re: The Getting Old Sucks Thread

I'm 40 and the doctor put me on a beta blocker this week for blood pressure. Hairline ain't what it used to be and I don't sleep as well as I used to.

I can still drive it 290 down the middle and the weiner still operates though so I'll take what I can get

A few other little tricks that will help with you blood pressure. Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother) ,I take a table spoon twice a day and it really does work . Breathing (yes sounds silly but) taking long deep breaths will help with your blood pressure also.Two small painless things that you can that will help.

I noticed work out and eat less salt are not on your list. Are you making a list of things that actually work, or a list of things you can do that don't involve actual effort? lol

250 plus plays more than fine if you can get up and down and make a putt. I just spray and pray these days.

Speaking of getting old. I can only seem to make time to play about 10 times a year, what with kids in sports and all. Back in high school when I was playing 4 times a week I had the index at about a 9. Can't get below 12 anymore.

Yeah I'm on a low dose beta blocker myself. We all know the deal, lose some weight, work out, watch what we eat, etc. But sometimes it's also just genetics too.

As for sleep I know you're anti-weed but CBD is amazing for sleep.

Re: The Getting Old Sucks Thread

I have to really agree with the sleep...I sleep much worse with than I used too. if I have a drink or three it will really affect it. I do the CBD if I have a bad night of sleep to get me back inline. Also room darking curtains ive put up as well. With me its not that I cant go to sleep, but the waking up early not getting back to sleep before work.

Also with the drinking...as I get older, Im a cheap date now...tolerance has gone down a bit.
