Re: A Sobering Realization

Or perhaps just the peace and serenity of doing what you long to do will take care of it, eh?

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.

Re: A Sobering Realization

This reminds me of when I herniated a disk moving furniture in '08. I asked my doctor if I could still play hockey. His response? "F**k no!" I still skate twice a week. What a d**k. I'm 45, btw. I will probably sail and play hockey until I drop, regardless of what anyone tells me.

Re: A Sobering Realization

My daughter was in a car accident. She suffered a spinal injury. The doctor told her, "No more weights, forever!" After a year of being mostly sedentary, she found herself depressed and lethargic. She went back to the gym, started lifting again and is now a personal trainer and winning fitness competitions. She's happier than I've ever seen her and in amazing shape. Doctors can be overly cautious sometimes.

Doctor's are afraid of liability. If she lifts weights, hurts herself and then says, "but my doctor said I would be fine....." I think they always try to err on the side of whatever is most likely to avoid a lawsuit.

Re: A Sobering Realization

Doctors are like major league baseball players: Often overpaid, morally or ethically lacking, and only able to bat .275 on their best days.

On the other hand some hardworking lackey driving a UPS truck or pouring coffee has to get it right pretty much 100% of the time, or they're gone. Hmmm....

Unfortunately you've got to interview a doctor and often "date" a few of them before you do something radical like "marry" one. So far the best thing I've found about ObamaCare is that an incredible number of older doctors, who never had the business management skills to properly run a practice, are retiring out because "it just costs too much to computerize". Now, how to get rid of the ones with poor medical skills as well....

Which still won't turn an of us into well-conditioned spry eldsters but sure will help prevent further needless damage!
