A Reality Check [Apr. 7th, 2013|05:48 pm]
Tony Grist
We were comparing notes on the care of elderly parents- and what a trial they can be- and one of us asked him how old his mother was and he said, "56"- which is 6 years younger than me.

Other than my bad knees, I don't feel much different than I did at 13. LOL.

The 56 year old mum must be disabled. Nobody needs elder care at age 56 unless they're very ill.
Huh
Just a different set of circumstances. I'm 60 and nowhere near old.

Haha! She must be doing pretty badly, to need care at that age. My parents are both nearing 60 and would probably disown me if I mentioned the word 'elderly'.

I don't mind being called "elderly" or "old". I've put in the time. I've earned the right.

I'm 56, but I'm still the baby of my family ;-). My oldest brother is going to be 70 next year. And we feel barely grown up...

Curiously, I read earlier in the day of pyat opining that a new intern referred to "an old couple", later discovering that they were born in 1968 and 1969. ^_^;

Ye gods! The whippersnapper needs to be put over someone's knee and paddled for days.

There's an anthropologist called Helen Fisher (who studies being in love), who points out there are people in their 80s living middle aged lives now.

Which I kind of take to mean, you're middle aged until you're not.
