Is 53 Old For A Turtle? Yes, It's My Birthday
People talk about age all the time, fearing it, or accepting it, but truly not understanding the experience of aging.

I found this site in 2007, I was new to the Internets because I had been busy with life, and just started my writing career, and I learned so much - so many things I had to re-think, and study.

I wish I'd had all y'all when my son passed on 11-9-02, I wish I'd been here on 9-11-01, but I wasn't - I was working 50-60 hour weeks.

I'm 53 today, still the same weird kid I was at 13yo, still the mess I was at 23yo, still the same struggling woman at 33yo, still the survivor at 43yo, and now I'm just the same as I ever was, struggling, odd, and weird at 53.

On a good note, I'm relatively healthy (on no prescriptions), my hair is still mostly blonde (even though I've wanted gray since I was 20), and I can walk without a limp despite the clubbed foot that every doctor I have seen wants to cut.

And the only advice I want to give is that we stay the same, personality wise, whatever we were born into continues, and young folks looking for age and wisdom don't understand that you are, and we are, the same as we ever were.

Happy birthday to me! Some turtles live a long, long time.

There is an ancient Indian saying that something lives only as long as the last person who remembers it.

My people have come to trust memory over history. Memory, like fire, is radiant and immutable while history serves only those who seek to control it, those who would douse the flame of memory in order to put out the dangerous fire of truth.

Beware these men for they are dangerous themselves, and unwise. Their false history is written in the blood of those who might remember and of those who seek the truth. - Albert Hosteen

Happy Birthday! Hope its a good one.
I'm 55 and about the same as you.
I was born with both clubbed feet but as a baby my parents had it corrected and I spent many of the first years of my life in casts and braces.I went my whole life after that without a single problem with my feet till this July when I twisted my ankle in the lawn. It seems like its taking forever to heal and causes me to limp.I hope it eventually heals completely.I consider myself pretty fortunate to be able to have walked all those years without any problems though.Still healthy like you without meds,and weird,lol.
May we conitinue to be weird and healthy for many more years!

Turmeric and dandelion tea has helped a lot. Are you a musician by the way? Weird question I know, but I know so many double clubbed feet musicians who are drummers or bass players, it was weird to discover. I played drums for a while - stand up drummer. Always have to ask chuckle

No, not much a musician here.I already take tumeric along with lots of healthy vitamins and herbal supplements as I'm a healthtard when it comes to that stuff.I'm female so I'm thinking its my age and maybe osteoporosis setting in which might be slowing things down.
