During this pandemic it's worse than usual. Staying in sucks/ Not having visitors even family. Unfortunately we had a fire in the complex and we were all outside with the police and fire dept. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. Talking to neighbors thar I hadn;t seen for about 3 months. Presently getting old sucks.

I agree with everything you shared for sure.  I'm hoping things get better soon. Zoom call meetings help stay connected with family and friends.  This might help too with coping with the isolation aspect of life under the current situation.

For me, the worst thing about getting old is feeling less valued.  When I had a job and was raising my children I felt like I was living life fully.  As for getting old,  we need to feel like we are contributing to something besides ourselves.   Before the pandemic I would do volunteer work and take care of my grandchildren to keep busy.  Now, with the pandemic I feel isolated at times.  But I try to be thankful for many blessings and not dwell on negative thoughts.

This pandemic has its price since in lockdown all I want to do is sleep. After a whole day in bed I am still sleepy and I don't understand it. I eat more trying to feel okay is difficult. My family won't come to see me. I haven't figured out Zoom and similar meet places yet. I suppose I'm there.(old) 😰

What is the worst thing about age and what can we change to make it better?

 

That it's difficult to realize that we're as old as we actually are?

 

 I always thought when i was much younger, in dealing with the elderly, that it was sad that the body seem to age but not the mind.

 

What can we change to make it better?...maybe attitude?

My hip and knees hurt often.

My eyes have big circles around them.

Unable to do the exercises for over a half hour.

I am  not as strong as I used to be.

I can not walk as long as I used to walk.

It's like this pandemic we are experiencing now some don't feel protecting themselves and others is important and might open up the country sooner. Unfortunately this is freedom to express.

My feet and/or ankles are stiff after a day of heavy exercise.   

 

Mentally, I just finished up a certificate in data science, and while I think some of it was harder for me to intuitively understand, harder than if I had been 25 or 30, it really was nice to be able to do it, and do it well.  Keep learning!

 

Otherwise, it's all good.  So far.
