Sorry. I'm in my mid seventies and still going strong. Had my last attack, although very mild, a couple of months ago.
I thought this was true also, and I tried it on my neuro. "These things tend to go away with age, right, Doc?" I said.
His answer, very dryly, was: "Not neccesarily at all." Followed by dead silence, while he looked at me over the tops of his glasses. The problem is that I have a son-in-law who is a doctor and he gets me into all these medical experts who know who I am and don't couch things very carefully. They figue I understand the system. Son-in-law says things like, "You have headaches? Have you tried phrenology?" Or "Take two aspirin and call me in November." This is medical humor, I guess, and it's too bad I like him so much, or I could think up some sort punitive measures.
