Older Otters: what do you miss doing that you can't do anymore?

I realized last night that I can't sleep on my stomach anymore. I haven't been able to for years because of my sleep apnea and creaky back. I am 47 years old and as I approach fifty I am becoming aware of stuff I used to be able to do that I can't anymore.

So I am posting this totally pathetic thread, which I know will be completely trashed by the yowuns among us, but there it is. Please provide input.

I can't drink until 4:00am anymore and be functional the next day. I used to be able to throw down quite a few, wake up and be somewhat productive. Now if I drink that much I feel it for the next few days...

Shit my pants. I can still do it, but it isn't socially acceptable anymore.

Drink milk. One day, fine; literally the next day a bowl of Life put me on the dumper for an hour.

I wish I could sleep through a whole night without waking up to piss two or three times.

Me too. I will do it out of sheer obstinance if someone makes fresh cookies, but I pay for it about an hour later.

I also now can't read with my regular glasses on. I have bifocals, but I hate them.

I take saw palmetto (daily!) and it's helped quite a bit. Still have some nights where I gotta get up, but most of 'em I get to sleep.

Yup, I have found if I take a multivitamin high with the Bs when I start drinking (maybe after too), I can be somewhat productive. If I forget to take the vitamin, if I get off the couch other than going to the bathroom it's a minor miracle. Bonus the vitamin turns my urine neon yellow.

You have become lactose intolerant. Try switching to soy or almond milk.

Play baseball. I used to play from morning until it was too dark to see the ball. These days I play once every couple of months and am sore for days afterward. I go scuba diving every weekend, or else I would join an over 50 league so I wouldn't have to run so fast to keep up with the teens I play with now.

Find a quiet hour to rest and read after work. Having a child at a later age really changed my time management!

Grow stuff in the dirt. Somehow, it just doesn't work as well in the desert.

Sleep. Having a kid screwed that up big time.

Every morning at 5am I take a big long piss.
Every morning at 6am I take a big dump.
I wish I could get out of bed before 8am.

I just wish I could sit on my couch for more than 30 minutes without dozing off.
