I ended up with pneumonia and some heart issues – up to that day I’d not needed daily medicine beyond the occasional headache medicine. That was soon to change.
Given how ill I was at that time, I’ve done some re-evaluating of my life. After all, I am in my early 70s now and should be a bit more aware of my health – I couldn’t just breeze along as I’d been doing any longer. I’d had a good run of being okay, but the reality is… I wasn’t okay and needed to address that now not later.
Since this is a fun website where I showcase some of my joys (and annoyances) in life, I thought it would be the perfect place to talk about health in older folks, what options are available to keep us healthy, and thoughts on my own journey (although I’m not going to get too personal here). I’m no expert but I do know how to research and that’s what I’ll be doing.
So, welcome to the Health category with future posts to come. 🙂
