Slid into 50, in overall good health though. Every day is the most delicate balancing act.

    I accepted I am not gonna live to be an old bastard a long time ago. If I make it to 55-62 I'll be happy.

    Problems as of now,
    High Blood pressure and Anxiety I didn't know existed until about a aug 2020. Under control with meds...
    Liver is toast pretty much... Go for liver scan in a few weeks.
    Kidneys are fair but minor damage
    C4-C5 herniated disc w/nerve impingement, and arthritis set in adjacent verts
    Lower back issues but I can keep them under control with PT I do everyday. Had a bad accident in my mid 20's broke L1-L5...

    Past that I have had many wounds/injuries...including but not limited to several knife wounds, stabbing, gunshot to my right wrist, several broken ribs, fingers, dislocated shoulder, broken wrist, torn meniscus, dislocated kneecap, punctured lung.... etc....etc.... from being an Enforcer in a gang, a notorious street fighter, ATV/Motorcycles, and auto accidents (none my fault)

    I live in constant pain and have for years. Is what it is... I take some ibuprofens everyday and try to stay active as that helps most of that, except this new neck problem that cropped up. I actually broke and went to the E.R. yesterday after waking up in agonizing pain. They gave me some shots, steroids and what not and I do feel better today. Life's a bitch then you die...

    Just to add a thought as even as worn out as broken down as I am and some of you are, Take a look at the younger generation of so called "men"....
    Smile and know even in our state we are twice the men they will ever be (the majority of them leastways) Just thought I would give us all something to make us smirk on..lol

    I dont have to back-off anything s I really never went full-blown on anything. Was always health conscious, since I have a horrific family history on my Dads side.
    (He was 1 of 12 siblings, 9 died before age 50).

    I lifted Natty from 1978 to 2016 (age 12 to 50) before jumping on TRT at age 50. I mostly just do 100 mg a week, but throw in TRT plus a couple times a year (for a month each) just for a boost. (A little Deca, maybe one A-Var tab).
    Blood work just came back perfect, we know thats not always a perfect picture even when great. I had calcium score, Stress-Echo test, all good. (I do have some calcium, but zero plaque or blockage, and perfect ejection fraction 65%).
    Doc says calcium is from statins doing their job, calcifying potential plaque so it doesnt rupture.

    Anyways, at 100 mg's a week Test-E, things are perfect. (850 Test-Level)... All other markers in-range... Just keeping-on at my old age (55)...

    I am lucky at 51 -- slightly high blood pressure unless I do more cardio than I'd like, and high RBC. Lipids could be better -- LDL is high-ish but total cholesterol is low. Never had any lifting injuries other than strains, had liver issues ten years ago, but diet seemed to keep it at bay.

    I was actually walking around today in a funk feeling sorry for myself…then I came across these posts.
    I am so blessed not to have to deal with some of the shit you’ve guys have gone through and your battles lifted my spirits x10 👊🏼

    Im 55 on TRT and do add some low dose extras in about twice a year to stay above average with my physique. Maybe low self esteem, vain, whatever you want to call it, I just like to look good without a shirt lol

    HBP- under control with losartan and bystolic

    Had aortic scan because of family history of aneurysm and revealed moderate plaque build up. My total and LDL was a low high so Dr wanted to prescribe statin. Ummm, NO!

    I went on a supplement regime of Bergamot, niacin, Vitamin K, and D, and NAC.

    Two months later, all in normal range with rise in HDL 👍🏼

    BTW…donate blood regularly. Especially if you’re on TRT.
    I’m learning more and more that not only high hematocrit but high iron is the enemy of longevity

    For all the guys in their 40s who think they won’t live until 55 or whatever, don’t plan on it. Dying early I mean.
    I lived my life taking significant risks and was pretty sure I wouldn’t make 50. Then it came and I thought “Fuck! Now what am I going to do?”
    So at that moment I realized that I better start taking care of myself.

    Scheduled to hit 58 in September.

    What if you're in your 50's thinking you won't make it to your 60's? Progressively, those odds are in my favor, right?
