Well I never thought about old age...you don't when you are young do you? I might have made better choices if I'd realized how long I would live!!!!
I don't particularly like this stage of life, though I'm happy for the gift of a long life and grateful for each day and good health.
Unfortunately I have poor vision (macular degeneration) and I don't drive any more. Really restricts freedom especially in a small town (my fault, perhaps should have stayed in a big city but this place is so safe and peaceful!)
I do lots of things, yoga class, hula dance class (great fun), linedancing (not so much here) and walking my dogs. Sometimes I see my son and daughter and grandkids nd that's very enjoyable. I trade the stock market and tht's interesting and usually profitable.
But I don't feel like ME anymore. Guess this sounds strange. Interested in other older people's view of old age.
And maybe people have always felt this way as they age but the world seems insane!!!!!!
