Disrespect for simply getting older.
Fucking prostate and the need to pee.
Dysphagia. Swallowing issues.
When you sneeze you sometimes have to run to the bathroom
Grief at having lost so many things, people, pets, a home, seeing your kids and/or grandkids rarely, etc.
That it can be mentally wonderful to get older.
As a woman, invisibility. Which can be a perk.
Google hemmeroid, or hernia.
How early it really happens.. like sure 30 is still “young” but believe me many days it’s harder to get out of bed or a chair than it should be.. not to mention around 30 is when the crippling sneezes begin
We are all going to need help when we’re old. All of us.
Sometimes peeing a little when you cough or sneeze.
How society pretends like people past a certain age don’t exist anymore.
TV shows are geared towards the 18-49 demographic. Advertisers mostly focus on young consumers. Finding a job past a certain age becomes much more difficult. Then people wonder why older generations get stuck in their ways…
When the highlight of your day is a good bowel movement.
The realization that you start losing your independence sooner than you thought or hoped.
1. Forgetting to zip up after using the bathroom.
2. Forgetting to unzip before using the bathroom.
3. Forgetting to get out of your chair before using the bathroom.
4. Remembering to do all that but just not caring.
Having medical issue of your own and trying to take care of a spouse with his medical problems. Let’s not forget the more medical issues equals more meds which means more side effects and more interactions among those meds. Besides that there are those pharmacy bills.
How fucked you are if you never got your shit together.
Being talked down to by medical personnel.
Viable arrangements for dementia patients.
What u/pi–ip said about hospitals killing the aged is absolutely true – not the result of ‘conspiracy theories’ or misunderstanding of statistics.
Hospitals can kill you when you are over 70, with no impact to them
The fact that it is the cause of many diseases.
Amazing to me that we provide more dignity to our pets than to our seniors.
When you get to the point where you need to make room in your cupboards for the big plastic jar of Metamucil and keep a glass and spoon on hand for the next morning.
Or make room for and keep up with other medications and older people needs.
Inanity to fuck bitches
