This is not worth the cyber-paper that it is written on, might be interesting anyway. It is assumed, you are an average type person without cancer known. You have to click at the right to go to next question(s) and finally arrive after answering, as to what your projected long life might be or could be. Like I said it is for kicks or amusement at best and not meant to be a downer for anybody.

Hey I supposedly made it to around 83, of course it is scientific and gospel truth, in my best dreams of course. Right now I am shooting for 63 as a current goal and with a smile, if I could buy an extended warranty plan I would be on it like white on rice. I do enjoy my current status.
 
Hey Tony...I knew it would bring out the tiger in you!! Hope you do.....GRRRRRRRRREAT. Hey did I sugar coat that or was that corny or flakey....go figure.


Bob(now age 58)-Dx 2002-(51)  (total urinary blockage-OUCH!) bpsa 46.6 ..yada...nightmare stats. Flomax and lots of Budweiser...thereafter...e.g. like a race horse (Mr. Ed said so-Wilber), just kidding.  smilewinkgrin        Current psa  .36

Don't blame me for the warped humor or attempted ones, it must have been the drugs...the ones for tongue medical purposes for PCa, what were you thinkin????

I tried to just for grins set everything to green and good. I can live to 108. But if you change the marital status to "cheating" it says only 104. Thus being the case, have I been setting my expectations too high about marriage? (Please don't read this, Ruthie!!!)

The results made me laugh, most people think I am much older just looking at me, by as much as 10 years, that test made my virtual age 10 years younger. It was most amusing anyhow, thanks.

This is pretty cool. I'm 53. Telling the truth, it says my virtual age is 45, and I'm going to live until I'm 85. The problem is, I have diagnosed idiopathic hypersomnia - which basically means my brain is telling me to go to sleep all the time. I have been taking daily medication for it for about 8 years.

Right now, I FEEL like I'm 106. I'm just so darn tired all the time. Lucky me. So yes, I was a big time runner, and yes I actively coach soccer, but I can lie down on a concrete or tile floor at any time of the day and - bam - be out in a matter of minutes. And as my doctor says, I can sleep 20 hours a day and still feel hammered when I wake up. I'm not sure I'll have enough energy to live to 85.

If it's not one thing (PCa) it's another. But -
Life is good.

kcragman,
i never heard of your other malady before, that is interesting, will have to read up on that. I have the opposite problem, i suffer from chronic insomnia, have been on ambien for over 10 years, and even with that, lucky if i get 5 hours sleep a night. i can not sleep by day (unless i was running a serious fever), so i never get to take naps.

Yeah, I've been tired all my life. I've had 2 sleep studies and a nap study (at Sibley Hospital and Georgetown U. Hospital). It took 3 doctors before somebody came up with the right answer. In today's sleep-apnea-craze they want to diagnose ANY sleep disorder as apnea. The first doctor told me, "You must have it. Our machine is just not sensitive enough to pick it up." I guess the docs make a lot of money with those CPAP machines - the "gas masks" you wear at night to pump air into your mouth.

I take Provigil (modafinal). There was a big article in the Washington Post about this some years ago. The Army & Marine Corps are experimenting with it. It keeps a normal soldier awake and functional - "FUNCTIONAL" is critical - for 48 hours or more. It is a "smooth" drug - no peaks or crashes. The author of the article took 100 mgs and was still writing his article 56 hours later. I take 200 mgs and can barely get thru the day.

There are whole chat rooms out there dedicated to IH. Some people have it so bad they keep multiple items at their desks to keep them awake during the day (spray bottles to spray themselves in the face, those slightly painful wooden foot massagers that they crank on barefooted, things to smack themselves in the face with, etc.). That's not me, but I have to laugh whenever a doctor asks me if I ever feel "refreshed" in the morning. I feel just as hammered when I wake up as when I went to bed - if not more so. But I DO go to sleep - usually quickly and sleep soundly thru the night.

I say I can nap anytime - the sad part is I never feel like I consciously go to sleep during a nap. It seems like I have an uninterrupted stream of consciousness monologue going on. But the brain monitors and my wife tell me - yep, you zonked right out. Weird.

So that's my little thing. That, and constipation, and surgically repaired joints, and, oh yeah - this PCa thing. But - I am a positive person, and life is good. We all have our little things, and I certainly have little enough to complain about. And I have many wonderful people and things going on in my life, so it's all good. Sorry for the long email.

Live on!
