I just truned 60, big deal right? Well it seems like forever snce I have been apart of the world. I had to leave my job at age 48 because of my Arthritis. Okay, don't roll your eyes and say it's only arthritis, and you would be right if that is all it was. I have RA, OA Stenosis, Fibromyalgia, Ankylosing Spondylitis, no Fat on my feet (I litterally walk on my bones) Bone on Bone Knees, 4 buldging disc and 2 factured disc. So when I say arthritis it is the simplist of my conditions without having to into it all.  After leaving my job, that I loved- Restaurant Manager and Chef, I became a little depressed. After a couple of years of that I decied to go back to college, online. I walked away with another degree, this time, in HCA and Management. Unfortunaltey I still could not work, but having more education made me feel good. I then had to help my mother take care of my father while his health declined, I became his full time care giver. Now my mother needs my help and I am her full time care giver. I am not complaining. It is just I Ieft my job, became depresssed, became more educated, have now been a caregiver  for the last 4 years and I get no time off, no time out and have not been in a serious relationship for years. I would love to have a getaway with massages, facials (never had one) and some time alone, or maybe not! To have a conversation with someone other then a parent. A getaway is much needed and would be most graciously appreciated.

I am 71 years young with heart stents, onset of Parkinson's, Spinal Stenosis, Asthma and Type II Diabetes.  I don't  sit around and worry about any of these issues. I would be in a loony bin if I did.   Never sweat the petty stuff and never pet the sweaty stuff.    You'll live a lot longer with a positive attitude.   I have excellent Doctors and trust them explicitly.  God isn't done with me yet and the alternative still has a restraining order against me so a wonderful SPA TREATMENT would help my health and be fabulous.

I am 60 and have Parkinsons Disease for about 21/2 years.  I attend Rock Steady Boxing 4 times a week to strengthen and help failing body muscles.  It is pretty intense and I feel that this has helped my body and soul at this age to remain happy and healthyier.  I would love a massage!
