I really do wish I could keep up like everyone else , I feel like I have let so many down..Yea it Me ,tell it like it is , but a heart of gold , So much I want to do and join in , but its so hard just to keep up on me ,, Is that a bad thing , I guess probably not for most , after all I am in training trying to take care of me first ,, but truthfully it is so foreign , Its hard ,I actually have to pretend I am doing for someone else , sike myself out ,,,,With my health seemingly failing , including my vision teeth bones , I have to say looks are deceiving esp some days , some days i look 10 to15 yrs older ,,,
IT’S CALLED AGING !!
Its definitely a learning curve,unlike my injury years ago . Aging just sneaks on in, you cant help but wander though , what the heck next,, then some days its like um damn i feel GOOOD,,lol I have also learned that so much determines how we feel ,and especially after 50. Heck I thought having a monthly was hell ,, oh no when you stop producing all those things in your body that kept it young vibrant and well lubricated ,, like joints and moisture in your eyes and hair skin , yea nails ,now that is not even a joke . Your skin thins and your allergic to stuff you have never been allergic to , and thats not only because of the foods being contaminated , its also your body doesnt produce even the propper enzimes to break down the food and get it in the cells…. oh la la la di da,, right ! The Point is we all look back and wish we had taken better care of ourselves, and as we age we worry about it more , yet some have fallen apart so rapidly its pure hell catching back up.
So listen up , if your reading this and aint fighting to keep up with your own self , kudos ,, but please be patient with others because eventually you too will be battling , age , memory or health or something that is very hard to comprehend or keep up with yourselves ,unless you die before that time.
I think aging is not like it used to be thought of , I sure saw my parents health go down , but my grand parents ,well they just didnt seem to age in my eyes until 70’s, I really think its because of the microwave erra,,, We want it all right NOW,, No resting ,,Taking supplements to keep up with the job , home, family , friends, hobbies,, but i don’t understand it all.
I truly wish we could take what we know now and say go back to the 60s and try again ,,,but that’s wishful thinking , I think our generation and if there’s a next , is dying to soon way to soon, and my own personal opinion is because ,we are not governed by ourselves but by society , keeping up with the jones mentality,, no core family values , and no morals , all work no play ,, dont like it f off , walk out , society, no one held accountable , because not many are in the home as a loving nurturing example of parenting,,Parenting is dictatorship, and the children are only doing as they SEE… AND THEN CRITICISED FOR DOING IT THEMSELVES , AND ITS ALL THEY KNOW ,
When will we stop fighting each other and start leaning on each other as communities and villages ..Taking care of our own ? No instead its a THROW AWAY WORLD..
SO here’s something to ponder.. is it better to have dementia and be lost in your own mind by yourself , or have all your wits yet be so broken down and tossed to the side , to sit and wait for someone to help you go to the bathroom or open a can of food for you ,, Beg for a little help yet your family has no time for you , the kids mock you and avoid you like the plague , because video games and tv and getting rich is more important than another family member’s life !!!!
So you know I love to get you thinking,,I see so many kids no adults have family members broken down and right there close to them and if the parents are lucky they might get a phone call if they’re over 70 and home alone ,,,,are you kidding me !!!!!! They sit at their friends house all day long cooking and playing and partying , while mom ,dad , are sitting in the same spot they were this morning…
I don’t know about you BUT ILL TAKE DEMENTIA ANY DAY!!
just remember ONE DAY , YOU TOO WILL FACE THAT WHAT YOUR PARENTS ARE ,, ITS CALLED AGING !!
