    I am sorry, Biking Lady. I had horrific anxiety attacks as a young person but finally got beyond them. I know how crippling they can be. Maybe people have always had them but it was unspoken. I know...

    Hmm..I note there are minimalist meet up groups. I actually think it makes sense (practical me) to seek a partner that shares one very strong core value like that. But I do think your parameters in...

    I read in today's paper that adolescents now are much less likely to be interested in driving or dating as previous generations were. Many, especially in upper middle class families, are content to...

    For those of us who are older and for whom the US as we knew it has changed much, it is increasingly hard to find your "tribe". DH and I talk frequently about the changes we have seen in the last...

    Funny you should ask but DH and I made an afternoon of checking out the Costco which is 4 miles away to see if we should join. We made a long list of things we usually buy and went comparison...

    I think it's pretty normal to have forgetful episodes. It's more a lack of focus sometimes or as you said, too many thoughts period. I often have to force myself to focus. One of my frequent ones is...

    Finally watched Jackie with Natalie Portman. Took me back to that time when I was 10 and JFK died. I recall our principal in elementary school announcing over the intercom with a tearful voice that...

    I guess I shouldn't complain as I am paying $3100 a yr to add DH to my employee paid health insurance. Haven't used it yet...
  13. what percentage of your income is spent on insurance?

    It's that time of year again when I need to consider insurance renewals. I read that the average American spends 12% of their income on home, auto, health and life insurance. I just tallied ours up...

    I guess I maintain an appearance of mostly normal but probably have ideas that aren't the norm - especially where I live now. It has been interesting to leave a place I knew backwards and forwards...

    I'm reading a book now where elders share their wisdom on various topics - one of them being marriage. Of course, the cultural times they grew up in were different but some things make sense. In...

    Mine healed on its own but it took a full year to get back to normal. Seeing a physical therapist who specialized in knees problems and doing the exercises was key in my case.
