Senior Health & Aging Support Group

Aging is an important part of all human societies reflecting the biological changes that occur, but also reflecting cultural and societal conventions. There is often considerable social pressure in many societies to sustain denial of the aging process. Join this community to discuss general issues with aging and senior health.

    Hi,I am 62, and lately I have noticed that people, even my doctor I've gone to for 30 years, seem to be expecting me to drop dead at any moment. I was feeling fine until I retired and started getting social security, and I started getting all sorts of mail from insurance companies, AARP, etc reminding me of my responsibility to "take care of my affairs" to "ease the burden on my family". I have...
  • Hi. I was walking around the sites.....stopped on your post....I hope you're still here!
  • To post now, you must join the group. Things change. I think all of the Posts here are old. So I say, is anybody here?
  • Has anybody else noted that they are loosing some of their scars? I have lost one that I have had for over 50 years. Another one is very much less pronounced. One that I got in 2004 is also getting smaller and harder to see. Normally in the summer, I get darker skin and my scars are more visible, but not this year.

    Happy guy...But

    1
    Well here I am happy for the first time in my life and not knowing what to do next? Between being sexually abused as a child and being raised by an excessivly narcissistic parent, both led to me being excessively anxious and nervous 24/7 pretty much and ended up in a seemingly wasted life. Now all is well....everybody forgiven and my anxiety more manageable. So I'm happy. But now, how do I make...

    Aging Buddies Exercise

    4
    This thread is intended to be a place where anybody can post about exercise. I have started a walking program and am making progress with it. I want to start doing some strengthening exercises soon. These will be harder for me since I do not like sit-ups, push-ups, and lunges. If you see a post that makes you think that the author might be somebody you could help and/or be helped by, send them a...

    Aging buddies diet.

    0
    Many were enthusiastic about "Health and aging buddies." Member started groups tend to fizzle, it seems to me, So I thought I would start some threads that would help us get this idea going. This thread is to discuss diet. If you read something that makes you think you could be a good buddy for somebody, send them a message and decide how you want to help each other.____________________________...
  • Not sure if this is the right place to post this but I am looking for some folks that would like to be on line buddies with each other in regards to regain/maintain health as we get older. I have been reading some of the Drs. Rozen and Oz books and they recommend having a buddy to provide and receive support for making lifestyle changes to improve your health and slow aging.Any body else want to...

    Losing a pound a week

    2
    Hi all, Just want to share something that is working for me. I need to lose between 10-15 lbs. I decided to try cutting out daily sweets and chips. They were the two things that I seemed to have to have and even with exercising the pounds were not moving. Now it has been three weeks and I discovered I'm losing a pound a week. I was at the Dr's last week and was surprised to see I'd lost...
