As most young people I never thought about becoming a senior citizen much less preparing to become one. I remember when I reached my 60’s I would get information from AARP, a membership program for senior citizens. I never opened it but threw it in the trash feeling offended trying to convince myself, I’m not old.
A few years later when I reached 65 years old, I woke up one morning and wondered what has happened to me? My health was declining, I felt pain and discomfort like never before. I started getting alarming reports from doctor’s visit and even a few stays in the hospital. Then it hit me, I’m a senior citizen. My mom tried to warn me but being hardheaded I would not listen as if it would never happen to me.
