Surviving Getting Older is Not For the Faint Hearted!d

The older I get the harder living and surviving in a fast changing world becomes.Few people saved enough to live retire and live comfortably in their senior years.Health issues are the least of the worries in the majority of people over 55.Between the economy of today,health issues,the cost of Medical and Dental and the continuous threats of politicians of stopping or reducing Social Security payments(which is the only income many seniors have) the seniors of today are faced with increasing worry of how to pay for rent,utilities,food, and other expenses.
Add to those concerns the fear of being dependent on others,unable to drive, or faced with living in a nursing home and to take care of themselves without help.
No one wants to be a burden to their adult children and many seniors are faced with some very difficult decisions as they grow older.Our lifespans are outdistancing the medical research needed to keep humans healthy and able to care for themselves well into the century mark.
However;studies are being conducted all over the world to find ways to keep our brains functioning at a high level and our bodies younger and healthier.
That being said,another problem arises,OVERPOPULATION! Well,as Rosanne Rosanna Danna said."It's always something,if it's not one thing ,it's another"! How right she was:)
