Too stubborn to let this get me down

Cherrie, Age 69

Hello. Who knew 70 would feel so lonely. I’m retired advanced practice nurse, for about two years. Still miss the patients and staff. Recently had a total knee replacement surgery and doing well. Except, it has brought up so many anxieties about aging. I have been crazy active and busy, this seems so alien. One step and one day at a time. Really, I think I’m too stubborn to let this get me down for long.

    I know what you mean, Cherrie. I thought my 70’s would be smooth sailing for travel and relaxing. It’s two years since a total hip replacement and I can finally say that I’m back to feeling active and hopeful. Hang in there! The knee replacement will give you a new lease on life after healing and recovery. 🙂
