When, your grandkids say Grandma, you look different! Do I? How is that? What's that hanging from your arm? Oh, that, that's my extra skin, you need that as you get older. How come you have a lot of spots? I must be related to the cats, since my name is cat. How come your hair is falling out? It's like getting a whole new hairdo, you shape, it,cut it, spray it, and voila, your new look! How come you always say, my aching joints? Well, your bones tell you, they need nourishment, like making a smoothie with nuts and seeds, like Tahini Milk or Almond Milk. You get to try more items, be creative to make more joints moving to the groovin. Hoe come you drink all those green drinks? Ahhhh, nutritious kale, spinach, parsley, cucumber, green leaf lettuce drinks! Oh, those make you feel alive, give you strength, make your blood run smoother, oiling your machine,feeding your brain.
Do you have an iPad? Or a phone? Because you can play with other people on games, text with them and enjoy life. If you have a iPad, you can read books, yes, read books, get into another life reading them.
how about puzzles? there are hundreds of puzzles on an iPad! All different kinds.
Theres music, yes, music that you enjoy. If you have kids, tell them to buy you an iPad and set it up for you.
theres youtube, where you can listen to the forest while people go hiking. Get some earphones too, it's a new world out there, and you will just get started.
I have had no good luck with dating services. The one person I did connect with give me an HPV. I was obviously not the only one he was dating. So far the men I've discovered have no desire to connect just one person. That's not who I am.
The worst is watching family and friends who are older having to suffer Alzheimer’s or dementhia and having to move into an Assisted Living Facility. But the worst is losing them and having to go on in life without them.
Being fortunate in health, the way people judge you because of the age number, not who you are. If I don’t tell people my age, they think I’m several years younger. I’m really sharper than most people 20 years younger.
on the other side, your joints hurt in the mornings, and the obvious stiffness, currently my only real complaint.
We've all known from the time we were old enough to understand death and dying that we are only in Planet Earth UNTIL our time to leave is up. Age aint nuttin' butta numba because death is no respector of age and I've seen that up close and personal during my years as a registered nurse. I've seen infants go before they were born, after they were born, pediatric kids...teens...young, middle aged, older adults...we're all only in Planet Earth until our time of departure. We didn't know we were coming, and we won't know when we're going...ONLY OUR CREATOR GOD KNOWS so just live your life...it's a gift from our Creator. Exercise your gift of life by helping others along the way.
I am in good health and enjoy wonderful relationships with people of all ages. I see no disadvantages to being over 65 except the loss of my looks due to aging. Even so, there are still people who think I’m cute.
Going through this alone. I don't have children and my husband is much older than me. My fear is that I will have no one to help me as I age. I won't have an advocate to stand up and see that I'm being taken care of when I can no longer do it for myself.
