As an adult I wrestled , played football and competed in MMA at pretty high levels.
I have always refused medical care. I now have scoliosis ,degenerative disc disorder and arthritis in my spine. Which gives me a migraine almost daily.
I have been KO’d and/or concussed in the dozens of times. So I can’t remember shit and I am always using the wrong words when I talk.
I have shredded meniscus in both knees. My right ACL tore in 04 and I refused surgery. Now my patellar tendon is so thin from years of slop in the joint I am waiting for it to pop.
My shoulders, I don’t even know what to call what’s wrong with them. Permanently in the wrong spots I guess .
My leg muscles stopped working so I couldn’t refuse surgery and I had hip surgery before I was 30 ( 4 or 5 hours after surgery, I boned a smoking hot waitress that I met at Buffalo Wild Wings two weeks before for the first time . Then went elk hunting 10 days later, killed a bull so far back in it took two days to pack out). So that hip never healed. My other hip feels like it has a steak knife stabbed in it when I lay down to sleep. Walking hurts.
Life is painful but at 6’2 255 I can still grab rim on a 10’ hoop without a running start. And I could still go jog 4 or 5 miles painfully any day of the week. My overhand right is also still legendary. So it’s not all lost.
All of this said, the worst part of getting old is when you realize you are hooking up with women in their 30s and no longer hooking up with women in their 20s.
It is depressing.
How about you OG?
What is the worst part of getting old for you?
