"Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many."

~Unknown

Our bodies are like cars. What do I mean by that? Well, just like with any vehicle, parts wear out, deteriorate, rust, or just stop working altogether over time. We may do lots of preventative maintenance, "change our oil" like we are supposed to, but still, eventually, the car will fail for one reason or another. Our bodies are no different. Sometimes, we even are stuck with defective parts, but unlike the auto industry, there is no recalling parts of our bodies that didn't come as they should. So what does this have to do with growing older? As I tell my patients, the alternative to growing older and facing all of the challenges and problems that come with it, is simply this, dying young. No one gets out of life alive, so we might as well take good stock of our situation, and be grateful for what we have. It could always be worse.
