TRIFOCALS, DENTURES AND CANES

Jan 17th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

As seniors age all kinds of signs appear to remind us of occurrences that suggest change in our physical and psychological state of being. These are often obvious, sometimes subtle, frequently temporary.

Others are daily symbols of our having passed one milestone or another. Just the other day, a two hour respite (?) in the dental chair indicated that enough time had passed that major attention was required. At the same time that is happening, I am recovering from a corneal transplant, my fourth, which indicates that my inherited difficulty with vision continues in my 70′s.



SIX THINGS TO SURRENDER AS WE AGE

Jul 20th, 2012 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

Here are six things to surrender as we age:

NUMBER One: “A negative attitude and an off putting manner.” Sustaining this kind of disposition is a sure fire way to be off-putting of others. Wonder why people avoid you? Check your attitude quotient. A sour disposition is a sign of a deeply dissatisfied person, with anxieties and angers that need to be addressed and eliminated. Carrying them on, as a badge of honor, is a sure way to alienate the presence and pleasance of others in your daily encounters.

NUMBER Two : “An ‘I’m right, you’re wrong’ stance on most every subject. Wait a minute, you just took up some of my time to tell you what really is going on.” Barging in, expressing vociferously a position on almost any subject is another of the down putting behaviors that leaves others uncomfortable in your presence.
