I like to think of myself as unique. However, after reading Lisa Haney’s article in the AARP Magazine February/March 2019 edition entitled “They Won’t Kill You But They Sure Make You Miserable,” I feel so typical. She writes about 8 conditions that are not “medical calamities” but cause a lot of pain. Four of these conditions I can attest to: urinary tract infections, kidney stones, migraine headaches and intense shoulder pain. The others, so far I’ve been spared, are shingles, benign prostatic hyperplasia – not going to happen, gout and fibromyalgia. Like I’ve said before, getting older sucks.
