Are you asking in question wheter you are disabled and called senior. NO you are disabled and not senior. Senior as told becomes age 62 most places. An agreed magic number age 65 is our Medicare qualification date /age. I am a senior 67 and disabled. Do i look either. probably not. As non conforming answer you can call your self senior but get senior discount at Movie or other places NO... God Bless you On your TripSusanMarionIaNew.jpg.JPG

Right on! Who cares what 'they' think. Let's get to redefining ourselves!

A Senior, hmmmmmmmmmmm.........................I agree with Epster.................you have to just KEEP ON KEEPING ON! There is no clear cut definition as to when a person is officially titled a "Senior" and I think it is left up to each person to define when that title of "Senior" is appropriate to apply to themselve.

 

So why are you concerned about the title of being a 'Senior"................so let me throw out some thoughts to you about being a "Senior"......................................

 

I am 53, darn..........no I am 54 years old now...............I can't remember half the time what age I am.....................LOL.........Smiley Happy I must be getting old.........................NOT!  Just kidding, my memory is still pretty good. Humor, you gotta love it!   

 

And.......................No, I don't consider myself a Senior, an older and wiser man I more so consider myself. 

 

I welcomed my 50th birthday!  I made it this far I thought to myself, I have earned every gray hair and wrinkle and I have learned much, maybe not enough by the right time in life, but I have learned all the same. 

 

You mentioned you have some medical and health issues. If you have insurance I would recommend seeing doctors and specialist towards the issues you are faced with.  The arthritis you have can be dealt with by natural, some prescribed medications, and physical therapy program means. The medical profession has made some tremendous strides with arthritis in the past decade. The quicker they can get to the source of the arthritis problem, the sooner treatment can be begin.  Even if an illness or health issue has progressed beyond full recovery, there are still available means and treatments to give a person some relief.

 

Inflammation in the body is one of the key contributors to us aging, slowing down, and affecting many other parts of the body, including our mental being. A good doctor will target a persons internal inflammations, diet, and lifestyle to properly find a treatment regiment to help a patient rather then prescribing a few pills and told to come back in two weeks for a check up, so find a doctor that targets the whole body rather then just one symptom.

 

I take Turmeric ground powder, coconut oil, hemp protein, and a source of all natural/non GMO vitamins (Omega-3) .  Once in a while I will eat at the golden arches, but not too often.  I also take  "Glucosamine & Chondroitin" 1,500mg 3 tablets per day, and drink at least 3 to 4 glasses of water per day.  I am 54 and I feel thrity, I am very lucky, I have been taking the above for over 5 years, then again I have been taking all natural non GMO vitamins and Vitamin E for over 15 years. Many of the things I take reduce inflammation, lubricate the joints, maintain muscle mass, reinforced my nervous system, and list of benefits go on.  I am getting older and I accept that because we all get older, but that doesn't mean I have to become "ancient".  I did have some L4 and L5 area disk damage and through therapy and the natural items I take, I am about 90+% healed. I encourage you to read on and look into information concerning all the available things that are available for anti-aging and in many cases body repair resources if you are wanting to heal yourself and avoid the title of "Senior".

 

Don't worry about what anyone else labels you, only you have the right to label what you are.You are only "51".......................so, do you consider yourself a Senior?

@ymeoficrsolis88 Oh, I don't know ... that's all over the board. Some outfits define senior as 50, 62, 64, 65. But I think age is just a number. I'm 58 and white-headed, but have no intention of slowing down any time soon.

 

It sounds like you have some serious health challenges, and I wish you success in dealing with those.
