Default Seniors Couch #2

(I can't access the first one without a computer, so this is just a fill in.)

A place to check in and say hello.

I'm getting some low level anxiety about my health again. My friend was discouraging me about getting out of here. It's sensible from his position, that I stay here (a locked down nursing home). If I die here they'll take care of it, etc. He thinks he'll die first. I think I will die first. If I have to live here, or someplace worse, I'll want to die asap.

I think dying in my sleep would be okay for me, too. I get anxious about my health. Just got diagnosed with Diabetes and Cirrhosis of the Liver. May have a heart problem, too, but must get it checked soon.

Wow that's a lot to deal with. I admire your courage.

The nursing home is confining all the residents to our rooms, because there is a case of the flu here. I miss using my vaporizer and going outside! They haven't even given me a nicotine patch.

I've made the decision not to pursue treatment for any of the potentially problematic issues I may have. I think the best thing for me is to simply let nature take it's course, as they say. I guess I could change my mind. But I don't have any plans to do so...

I struggle with the typical woes of older age, such as waiting to get a knee replacement at some point. I also deal with so much pain that I have to take both prescription and non-prescription pain meds---and sometimes I still have pain, which can be depressing.

But I plug along.

Hugs to you all!
