The rediculously exorbinate copays for insulin and Lyrica!!  I have to choose between eating and having a place to live, and living.  Not a balance I am winning.  It is only getting worse!!

The worst thing is that your health goes down the tubes and, no matter what you do, you can’t stop it!

I have some really young friends that I used to work with.  While I was still working they seemed to treat me as an equal but since I retired and we go to breakfast once in a while, I feel a slight shift in their attitude towards me!  Telling me about scams out there and asking if my phone apps need updating!  I guess I got old when I retired.  Oh and of course the fact that my body doesn't realize how young my mind is!

Well I thought I would not like getting older.  But I do.  The only problem are my knees.

I exercise so my knees  will not be in much pain.  Wait...weight is another problem. I find I can not lose weight the way I would like. Other than that, I am fine.

My failing body and the stress that comes with being a caregiver to a Parkinson’s spouse. 

The constant losses of life’s pleasures.

I have to agree with one of the comments. I feel that family looks at me as too old to do the things that they enjoy doing.It hurts to not be included in "all the reindeer games" . My daughter and I went to my little great nephews baseball game and he said, where's the family, when I said, we are your family, it wasn't enough. I know he was just a little kid, but what he said, to me meant "I " wasn't enough.

I don't like having less energy. My kids and grandkids are very active and are busy all the time. I would love to join them in their walks up the mountains, picnics, swimming, etc. I just don't have the energy and stamina to do all these with them every time. When I go with them for one activity, say going on a picnic, I'm down for the next couple of days.
