I'm an old, fat man

I have now been sick for 13 weeks. It seems to be dissipating. The coughing and snotting are more infrequent now, but it's still there, so I still count it. And don't forget the staph infection in my face that made it swell up. I tend to keep colds for a long time, but this is a new record.

But there are other things. I've got a pain in my neck...or back. It seems to move. No clue what that might be. My arthritis seems to bother me more than it used to. My ankle swells more often and for longer duration. I feel new issues all the time. I've realized that I'm old, and losing the weight need to lose to feel better will only get more difficult. And I find it hard to even start the process.

You'd think my health and my kids would be motivation. But it's so, so hard. I don't know what to do.
