    Lately my lower back has been hurting like the dickens when I arise in the morning so I bought a wedge pillow to put under my knees. It's been helping a lot. Now I can lay in bed for like 4-6 hours straight and play Solitaire on my phone... pain-free!

    I need this.

    I turn 50 in 2 months, it's old age and ovaries.

    You look flipping amazing!

    Awe, thanks. <3

    If I could kick mother nature's *kitten* that would have me feeling amazing, but she wins in the end. :D

    YES. My miles are down, my times are down, takes longer to get warmed up, and if I sit too long then I get real stiff and sore. I was told a year ago that I’ll need a right knee replacement and that I won’t have enough time to finish my 50 state marathon goal. And I really like to sleep now,

    Back aches, knee pain, mostly the right one. Sore, tired feet. I get tired easily, nap more. Sometimes I'm content just rolling pennies or organizing my recipe box ... :wink:

    I used to criticize my mom about her aches and pains.

    Karma has bit me in the *kitten* as I'm the one now with the weirdest aches and pains. Tomorrow might be my left eyebrow, who knows 🤷‍♀️

    I don't even want to go out anymore. Unless I can wear comfortable shoes.

    This is so me! Date night the other night I put on these super sexy knee high boots that have studs all up the back. Took three steps and was like “nope”. Then changed into some flats. My other half comes out and is like “where’s the sexy boots go” and I’m like “if you like them so much you can walk down 4 flights of stairs in them. Be my guest. I don’t want to die today!”

    First five steps every morning are like a bowl of Rice Krispies.

    The worst to date has been when I had to buy a nose hair trimmer. Serious humility moment.

    I hate when the 20-something Target cashier refers to me as "sir". I try to be all hip and say "check ya later, bro" when I walk away. :joy:

    My Target cashier said to me: "have a good one!"

    I told her: "I already have a good one."


    and to the original question, yeah... my left knee hurts, maybe it's onset of arthritis or maybe it's because I've been doing a soul-crushing 45 minutes every day on the stair mill at the gym.
