I was talking to my DIL and she was saying how she was realizing that life is a series of ongoing changes. I had to tell her it really gets wild in retirement-things one could once do easily just isn't so, taking your health for granted is another issue, having to totally change you eating habits because of health issues, all will make a person wish they had started making changes earlier in life! I am hoping I helped her understand how important it is. I was talking to another DIL yesterday and she was telling me our GD is not eating right and her A1C is almost 10! She was diagnosed at 5 and has been on an insulin pump since she was 7. She is married now and mom isn't managing everything and we are both very concerned. Hoping this was the wake up call she needed and she will start doing better with her eating and exercise. Please say a prayer for her. I have to report for jury duty on Monday and not looking forward to that but guess I will manage. DH gets excused since he doesn't drive and has vision issues and all. 3 days ago

Retirement is an adjustment but what you describe is scary-at our age it is not easy to find some work to help pay those bills if we run in the red. I know many seniors down here are working at fast food to supplement their meager incomes or to pay for medicine but sometimes that isn't a possibility. I work a month in the summer but it is only because I choose to, not because I have to. It gives us a little extra spending.
