They both look great, I am not that put together like that now. I am kind of thankful for the mask wearing, covers a lot up. My forehead looks great thanks to botox for migraines. I would take the wrinkles over the pain any day.

Sorry you have such horrible migraines.. that must be horrific for you :(. but I wasn't thinking of how they look ..altho' the both look fantastic, I was thinking more of their mental, and physical abilities.

This is kind of a fear of mine. “What do I do if I outlive my wife and kids?” It doesn’t happen often, but it does happen. If I get to the age my mom was (87), I will have lived a good life and probably still of had most of my faculties.
...but would you be happy to die if you still had all your faculties?... I'm sure I wouldn't unless I was in terrible pain...

I’m not sure I understand the question.
well , it seemed from your last post that if you lived to 87 like your mum with all your faculties, you;d feel like you've had a good life... and I was asking how you would feel about dying at that age if you had all your faculties ( presuming you weren't in pain) ..

I suffer from Cluster headaches/ Migraines and unfortunately, I passed them on to my children.
My daughter treats hers with 30 botox injections into her scalp, she has got guts, I will give her that.
I much prefer using oxygen to overcome mine. Both my sons also use oxygen.
All the more credit to these wonderful women! If I ever get to that age I hope I have their energy.

I do the botox thing every three months. Mine are in the forehead, the scalp and the upper shoulders. It does help but does not make it all go away. I have xanax and naseau medications to use when they are really bad.

The cluster headaches sound like a nightmare. Like my migraines but worse. It you have not tried the botox because you think it would hurt to much it might be something to consider. The ones in the forehead are uncomfortable, painful but it is short lived, the ones in my scalp and shoulders do not bother me at all. The whole thing, getting the treatmet is about ten minutes.

It is kind of like child birth, not fun, painful but at the end worth it and it only takes 10 minutes not 10 or more hours.

There is a reason people like this are in the news. And only one word is needed to explain why. "Rare."
I think what is rare is that people this age are still active and mobile. It is not as rare to see that they are still alive due to modern medicine.
