First, a big thank you to @PERFECT GOOD for mentioning aging, and to remember that age is no limit to anything...
But it is hard to ignore the PAIN. Arthritis is challenging me in many ways. Since I am allergic to NSAIDS, I am particularly challenged. No ibuprofen for me! I even have arthritis in my feet, of all things. When I wake up, it feels like there are shards of glass in my feet. This is rather hard to ignore. My back, too, is rather a mess. I can no longer stand to cook. I am also losing the use of my right arm- they are trying to figure out why, but it is slow going. My local medical center has so much red tape and is PCP-oriented, so everything has to be seen by the family doc first, even when I already know she cannot help me, and i will be referred out to whatever specialist is required. And wait up to two months to see that specialist...
I know, I know...it is a state of mind...but when I am chopping onions for my famous chicken soup, and suddenly, my arm quits, I cannot ignore it. I must ask Wade to finish for me. A solution, yes, but it is hard not to mind- to have to be dependent on him even to push my wheelchair. UGH!
So, I would appreciate hearing from you all...how do you face your aging challenges???
BTW, I have already found that prayer and meditation help. But they do not fix permanent limitations. I cannot seem to know what to pray for at times.
Practice is the secondary part but first of all I want you to understand what I mean.
With cheerful please read the answer.
Arthritis OK considered pain. What does it mean to you. Some kind of pain that makes you helpless. OK stay at helplessness and try to observe around its circumstances.
Keep you observation continued....
After some time you see that helplessness itself is package of power. You actual want that power to win your weakness.
Instead you always making rival with that power. In the sense you do not want to accept it. If you do not accept the power that want to friendship with you. No medication will be helpful without that power.
Jaianniah believe me. You can win. The only thing you need to do is SEE POWER IN ALL.
Do not compare your pain with scriptures. Pain itself is the package of all confused scriptures. It has to be embraced. Embracing by means focus on silence.
Silence releases your scriptures in the silence itself. Released scriptures turn towards you as a health. After turning something that make you feel good. Do not try to apply your explanation to it. Just continue to quieten the sense. It will recover all.
I believe you, you can do it.
With well wishes the answer. Thank you.
it is interesting that
how to use wisely the gift,
how that is known becomes a
otherwise the corner one

Pray for a better diet!......
I go on a juice fast twice a year and every time I am absolutely amazed at how juicing heals the body. Juicing is where you require a "juicing machine" (not a blender) and drink the juice of vegetables and fruit. When I 1st started juicing it was a little difficult because I didn't realized how addicted to garbage food I was. After juicing for a week or 2 I watched rashes disappear, skin start to clear up, lost weight, and watch my stomach shrink and the bloated feeling go away. But juicing goes much much further than that.....it heals!! it is the most natural form of natural medicine.
Here is a video that describes your condition:
