Painful joints were traditionally treated with oral painkillers such as acetaminophen (paracetamol), ibuprofen or stronger anti-inflammatory drugs.
These are now discouraged following concerns that they may affect your liver and kidneys, as well as increasing your long-term risk of heart attack or stroke.

When I set out to create Boomerly, I knew that I didn’t want to build another “over 50 dating” site. Instead, I wanted to create a place that baby boomers could come to make new friends, no matter what they were looking for – a travel partner, a friend, a tennis partner or just someone to talk with. If some of our members find love along the way, I would be delighted. But, that’s definitely not the focus of the site.
What do men over 60 want? For women who have been trying to find that illusive “special someone” for a while, this may seem like an impossible question to answer. After all, for most of our lives, men were simple creatures. Now, as we reach our 50s and 60s, the situation is somewhat more complicated.
When I asked the Boomerly community whether they still believed that it’s possible to find love after 50, I knew what to expect. I was prepared for a fairly even split between people that thought that finding love after 50 is possible and those who have given up entirely on finding a romantic relationship.

Baby Boomers are avid adventurers and life-long learners. We thrive on “off the beaten track” discoveries and love to learn from our experiences.
I had always wanted to take a cruise.
Everyone I know who’s ever gone has loved it and had wonderful stories to share. It seemed like an easy and fun way to go to many different destinations and travel with others closer to my own age. I received some great advice from people about how to pick the cruise that was right for me.
I was born in England – on Valetta Road in West London to be exact. I grew up in a tiny tenement house with hollyhocks in the small garden that were taller than me.
There were buildings all around us that had been destroyed during the war. Dreams and circumstances led me far away from my London roots, but, I’ve always had love in my heart for England.
Can you believe that one small city in Croatia can be the movie set for Games of Thrones, Star Wars and Robin Hood? Games of Throne and Robin Hood we can imagine, but Star Wars? That city is Dubrovnik, A UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The first phase in preparing for a job interview is to gain a better understanding of your own interests and single out what you bring to the table. This is a critical first step.
It is well understood that hiring managers primarily choose a candidate based upon a perceived chemistry. How will this candidate fit into our culture? Will I want to be around them for the large amount of time I spend at work?
So much is written about the search for work today. When it comes to finding a job after 50, much of it is helpful, but only some of it is true. Some consists of more myth and misunderstanding than fact.
Times have changed. Few people today think of retirement as being “put out to pasture.” After all, day after day of hitting the golf course probably would get old very quickly. That’s why most people think of retirement as a chance to begin a new chapter in their lives.

I love fashion. Color, texture and style have always had a powerful impact on my life. For example, when I am shopping, I often will tune into my color of the day based on my mood. Then, I find myself attracted to items in that color family.
I like to chat. I chat first thing in the morning about any problems I faced in the night. Then I chat at lunch about events of the morning, and I chat in the evening about the rest of the day.
Last year, I met with two of my retired friends for a Saturday afternoon glass of wine. Both had retired within the previous two years.
We read about how wonderful being over 60 is and that retirement is almost regarded as Nirvana. Social media is splashed with photographs of retirees enjoying themselves and looking happy.

Having been in a bad marriage for more than 30 years, I thought I was the biggest loser on the planet. I felt I was certainly not attractive and unappealing. I was overweight. I was not good at making money, but I was good at spending them. I wasn’t sexy at all and had zero sex appeal.
