I like your picture, Lois. I can relate to the feelings. Most of the time I feel just like I did 40 years ago. Other times I feel like I might be 20 years older than I am. About four years ago I changed my auburn wigs for salt-and-pepper. It was time. Those ever-present commercials for the 'age defying' and 'wrinkle reducing' skin treatments just annoy me. I earned every damned wrinkle and gray hair I have. I absolutely hate that schizophrenic commercial for the men's hair color product: "My hair says experience," says one self while the other counters with, "Mine says energy." What a bunch of crap.
As I have said before, I am a medical minimalist. So I am as skeptical as you are, Kay, when considering medical information. One relative was misdiagnosed with lupus, given powerful drugs for ten years that caused a number of other serious conditions, and now has to get those drugs out of her system to treat the real problem--rheumatoid arthritis. Another was diagnosed with MS, couldn't tolerate the drugs prescribed when he could afford them (not often being without insurance for most of the time), and then found that the symptoms disappeared when he cut out the soft drinks he almost lived on.
Not surprised you didn't know Obama has announced his candidacy for re-election, Lois. He announced it via his web page (facebook page??--not sure which). No, I didn't see the actual announcement. I got it by way of CNBC which had been carrying teasers all weekend.
