Anonymous, Age 86
Are you interested in the story and comments of an 87-year-old (who retired from her job at 85)?
What if the things I told you were not as uplifting or pleasant as you would like? For example, I might tell you about women romantic rivals who used my age against me. Or doctors that are obviously bored with an older woman’s “trivial” symptoms. How hard it is to make new friends or meet new lovers at 87. What regrets I have, what I do not regret.
I am dealing quite well, I think, with things like this but would like to know how other women are sorting them out.
