As a Rehabilitation Physician, sadly I see cases all time of people living unhealthy and unfulfilled lives because of the choices they have made. Poor diet and health habits often ages them greatly beyond their years moving them rapidly along the ruler of life.

Mae West once humorously said “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.“

Stay well!
