Thanks, I lose sight of this every once in a while when things aren't going well and I get scared.

In my community I rarely see elders treated this way. If they are crossing in front of me or coming to a door I always tell them to take their time. However, I do not shop at WMT or the like.

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.

Being alone. Husband died. Son's heading off to a distant college.  I've never been alone. At 63, that's unpleasant 

One income household.  Husband died. No more SS from him. Still have bills.

For me it's the deterioration of my skin. Easy bruising, dryness, tenderness are all unpleasant and irritating.
