    Will I Live to see 80?


    Here's something to think about.


    I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said I was doing 'fairly well' for my age. (I just turned 60.)


    A little concerned about that comment, I couldn't resist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'


    He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?'


    'Oh no,' I replied.. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'


    Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?


    'I said, 'Not much... my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'


    'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'


    'No, I don't,' I said.


    He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'


    'No,' I said.


    He looked at me and said,... 'Then, why do you even CARE?

    jh, don't be so quick to think your life is shortened, b/c I took care of old people that were on insulin and lived to be in their upper 80s .My own life expectancy was sequed(sp) ? b/c of my history of endometrial cancer 7yrs ago.

    I Did not get where i am today by haveing sex,and fast cars,it might have help though,

    Do not have sex in a fast car, wait until the car is stopped or you will certainly shorten your life.

    I'm tired of dying at 80 or 90. So I have decided to stay here a lot longer and I'm glad to see the medical industry so willing to step-up to the un-dying challenge as they break down the doors of death. If you feel like hanging in there with me, you're welcome to join the party. 80 is just a number as is 160...think big and go far beyond the records. 200 sounds interesting if I can look, feel and think young at that age and beyond.
