I was thinking the same thing. I just changed my heart doctor and love then new one. My nephrologist recommended him.

Do you take tub baths? I used to get UTI infections all the time when I did that. I now take only showers and haven't had one in years.

True Story…..Brings back memories of my teen years. Modern Romance was another one. Then I discovered I didn't have to read these magazines-that I was LIVING many of the stories (This was in the 1950s and I was married young). They were good magazines for a teenager to read and helped make me a lifelong reader. I started reading comic books as soon as I could read, graduated to True Story and Modern Romance and then to real books. Being a reader helped me in school and college and now books take me to many places that I may never visit in person. I have found an article on line that I believe most older people would love. Do a search for "and then it is winter". It is very moving. I have been writing answers to some questions I wish I had asked my mother and grandmothers-so my descendants can learn a little about me and my life. It isn't a book but I wish I had something like that from people who came before me but they are all gone now.

Do you take tub baths? I used to get them all the time when I took bubble baths.

Let's face it-Life is Change. Very few of us are the same person we were 20 years ago. If we were we would be very boring people. If you can't do what you used to do, find something else you enjoy but keep your mind engaged. I really think that is the key.

Thu, Apr 16 8:25am · Downsizing, To Move or Not to Move? That is the Question in Aging Well

I guess I am lucky. We built our house when my husband was disabled from COPD so we have a ramp in the garage that makes it easy to get into the house. The master shower has a seat and the house has just two bedrooms. It is also small (only 1250 sq. feet) and is in a small town (under 3000 population). The only drawback is that the closest hospital is 30 minutes away but we have an emergency squad that can get us there if we can't drive. The hospital is small and if we needed something large the nearest large hospital is over an hour away. We have a screened in porch that is wonderful in the summer. I know most of my neighbors which also makes it great. My husband is now gone but I plan to stay here as long as I can.

She is a beautiful dog. A friend of mine was lost after his wife died. Didn't feel needed and was lonely. His daughter took him to a rescue organization and he found an adult cat that gave him a reason to get up in the morning. If a dog is too much care because you have to walk them, maybe a cat (who uses a litterbox) is the right move.
