    What do you suggest?

    Favourite answer:

    Take long warm mineral salts bubble baths to relax. Drink some chamomile tea.

    If those don't work, then tell you doctor that you need a prescription of valium and play online checkers.

    Seniors, do you worry about how you will take care of yourself as you get older?

     I sure do. I have no one, and I haven’t got the money to pay someone. I am lower, middle class so I don’t qualify for Medicaid, so I live in fear of what I’m going to do. I have a feeling I will die alone in my house & it will be a long time before anyone finds me. I have no one who cares or who checks up on me.

    Senior Citizens, when you were still living at home with parent were you expected to do many chores?

    As the only daughter I was expected to do most things and some neighbours thought that my mum was very unfair to me because my brothers and all my friends were allowed to go out and do their own thing. I had to help with house work, shopping, repairing dad's socks (darning) baking, ironing etc. - you name it and I had to do it.  I wonder how many of today's youngsters do all that and I also wonder if many of today's youngsters would just refuse (and get away with it).

    I had sons and daughters and they all had the same chores, no gender differences in my home.

    Was it the right thing for me to do these things on the count of missing out on attending indoctrination centers for the latest trends? ?

    I missed out on attending a program where people are indoctrinated for metrosexuality and taught of new hairstyles, so I posted a lie online about myself being a paedophile back in 2016. I was then  blacklisted in error which my eldest sibling too unfair advantage of just to ensure the blacklisting remains in place permanently. I was now seen as a contemptible person since 2016 by kids, young adults and seniors who attended. I also tried to make myself fit the picture of a person seen as the exact opposite by getting my own mum to hate me. 

    Were these the right thing for me to do since I missed out on it?

    Senior citizens, what will you do with your spare time when Yahoo Answers closes?

    Favourite answer:

    I registered with Quora but fell at the first hurdle as they wanted my actual name so the next I received was a 'temporary block' notice.   So reluctantly I added first a made up personal name, and then as the block was still there, my actual name - the block is STILL THERE.   Not only is that not for me, but my BP doesn't need to go up either.   I have now registered with AnswerBank which is British owned apparently.  Perhaps this site will give me a better replacement for YA?

    Why are they giving Covid 19 vaccines to seniors citizens(over 70)?

    Favourite answer:

    Because, believe it or not, 'some' people actually think that our lives still have some value.

    Those people to whom you refer, the over 70s, have probably put more into society than you younger ones ever do or will ever even want to do.  We all had responsibilities and accepted them. There was no skiving, staying in bed all day, giving cheek to parents and teachers. 

    We had to be absolutely obedient, pull our weight and be courteous and caring.

    Having more life ahead of you does NOT make YOU more valuable than those over 70.  We have the knowledge, the work ethic, the good manners etc. that many of your generation lack.  Your own children are going to enter a world with no ethics, no decency no pride in their work etc. and a time will come (when ALL we oldies are gone) when you, and others like you, will not know to whom you can turn for help and advice and, only then, you will realise what you have missed.  I pity ANY kids that YOU have or will have.

    Does anyone in Senior Citizens  remember the guy   "Just the facts, Carnac"?

    Favourite answer:

    Yes I do remember the name of that user.  A lot of the users who used to frequent this category are not longer here, by that I mean they have left the site all together. Do not know if they have died, or just got fed up with this site, as I has gone downhill a lot these last few years.

    I like to think that they are still around and just not spending time in the Senior Citizens category or this site anymore.

    Seniors, how do you recharge your battery when you're running low of energy?

    Favourite answer:

    I have lived alone for 9 years now am not worn out by family issues any more yet, some days, I feel completely drained of energy.  I have found that the best thing for me, at such times, is to just do nothing at all that is not absolutely essential. I take frozen dinners out of the freezer and leave the fresh vegetables and raw meat for another day.  I decide to use whatever is in the house so that I don't need to collect shopping.  I ignore the vacuum cleaner in the corner and also forget about the dusting.

    We can never recharge our batteries if we continue to drain them as we go through our day.  To be recharged we need to ignore many of those things that we think NEED to be done and just say to ourselves "Tomorrow is another day - those chores can wait".

    Got a ghost story?

    A friend recently related an experience which I would love to share, but am afraid to with other friends who might get too scared.

    As she was reading in bed recently, she saw a blond young man walk through her living room. She had the sense he was headed toward her guest bathroom.

    She got up and followed him, but he had disappeared. She figures he was a vision because everything was locked up and her dog who would ordinarily have raised a ruckus didn't bark. She has also seen legs walking in the swampy woods behind her home. She couldn't make out a torso, but walking there would be difficult anyway so she wondered if she had seen a ghost.

    What do you make of this?

    Have a story or stories you would like to share?

    Do you believe that your health was damaged during the long Covid lockdown?

    Favourite answer:

    Absolutely. Medical tests were cancelled. Appointments were nearly impossible. Being forced to wear a face diaper harmed me mentally. Can't find an available covid vaccine appointment.  Many things were damaged.

    nursing home arrangements are made?  Are these situations pre-planned with home care agencies in case of an emergency?
