Anita, Age 70
I turn 70 on Oct. 9th. I have been retired for 4 years and am trying to stay busy and alert. I have been able to travel a couple of times outside of the US with a college class of nurses. I am not a nurse but they let other go on these trips. I have enjoyed this very much but am not able to go every year because of finances.
I live in a small town in Texas and try to stay busy but I find it difficult sometime to get new ideas for activities. I am also a single female. I go to the symphony in Lubbock.
My mother lived to be 92 but suffered from back problems, macular degeneration and later in life dementia. I hope to avoid these as long as possible.
