Beware of a VERY Angry Forty-Year-Old!

The GERD attack got too out of hand, so I hightailed it to the emergency room yesterday. As I wasn't having any "chest pains" they didn't suspect a heart attack; however, "chest pains" aren't always a sign of a heart attack in women. Given that both of my uncles died of heart attacks, I certainly didn't object. While guzzling that yummy, delicious GI cocktail (and yes, that is sarcasm) the doctor came in with the lab results. "Good news," she said. "Your test results are perfect. They're better than a 40-year-old's." I'm about to turn 59, so that was great to hear. The EKG, the urinalysis, the blood work, all fine...not just for my age, but for a younger person's age! However, it was also distressing. If I have the body of a 40-year-old, that means there's a VERY angry 40-year-old out there, walking around with the body of a 60-year-old!!! If you see this person, don't tell 'em you saw me, okay!? A great song about getting older:

I always find it annoying when I am in extreme distress and all my labs come back normal. OK, I guess I'm fine then, at least I can't prove otherwise.

I’ve had a “nervous stomach” since I was 13. I got some extremely good news just before the GERD attack started, so that’s probably what vaunt. Good stress is still STRESS.

You win some, you lose some I guess. Sounds like you won this one. Good for you.

I am also in my laten50's but acting as in 40's, I eat a lot as if my metabolism is still fast.

It's not mine. I left that age behind a while ago. I'll keep my eyes open though, and if I find her, I'll steer her your way.

No! Please! I have the mind of a 4-year-old and the body of a 40-year-old, and I want to keep it that way! Don’t send them over to claim things!!

Glad you are alright. Being alone I constantly have to fight with myself when I feel a bit off and reason it out that stupid me is alright just stressing and scaring herself out. I hate that but what can you do. In my younger days when things went wrong, I put on The Beatles song When I'm Sixty Four and would amuse myself. Guess what? It has all suddenly snuck up on me since I just became 62 and this song is now coming to be a reality soon and I will have no one to look toward for a friendly shoulder to lean on. SIGH

I thought about that song when Paul turned 74 a few years ago. He'll be 77 in June. Dang, how'd HE get so old!?

@FourWalls that is like one Christmas long ago one of my best friends who has her birthday on December 29 said she would pour herself a drink that day and think about how she got so old. Now she is my age and her children are already grown so I say time for another drink and speaking of Paul since he was always my favorite Beatle and I am alone how wonderful it would be to run into him now. Yeah, the best dreams just get better

Vile? That’s one of the nicer descriptions. There’s one thing for certain: pharmacies don’t EVER have to worry about people breaking in to steal GI cocktails!!!

the doctors were amazed at my mother's bloodwork and which it was theirs, who are half her age.
