Aging With Dignity

~ 100 buzzes
We all strive to live in dignity which is defined as the state or quality of being worthy of honor or respect. It is a human desire to be respected, to feel worthy. Many of today’s discussions examine a variety of groups, and if they are respected and afforded all the rights intended for individuals to enjoy. These groups are defined by race, nationality, immigration status, socio-economic status, gender, or religion. But what about a group that spans all artificial categorizations? What about that one group all of us hope to belong to one day?

    #19 Thank you for sharing those links, @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee I have some catching up to do in terms of reading and I will surely read these. I try to avoid content - I spent too much of my own life stuck in my life stories and therefore unable to move forward. If you are still researching, let me know and I'll share the e-book. If, because your disease is advancing fast, you're no longer researching, please ignore my earlier offer to share information. I truly wish you as much compassion as your body will allow, as you continue on your journey.

    #11 @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee Thank you for sharing your story with such vivid and graphic imagery. I share this information as you mentioned you studied MS in the 1970s. if you're still studying MS you may want to look at META-Health. Motorial Paralysis, the body is stuck. The brain layer is the cerebral cortex (the generic theme is our social interactions with others - it's the brain layer that is involved in most dis-eases). The specific conflict with the outer germ layer is a paralysing conflict.

    There is a stress trigger, that sends us into the stress phase, then, if resolved, the regeneration trigger allows us to enter the regeneration (healing) phase and then return to health. But many of us get stuck before the body can restore health. In the stress phase there's paralysis & cell loss, in the healing phase there are things like convulsions, epileptic seizures and cell growth - the body is doing the opposite of what occurred in the stress phase, in an attempt to restore homeostasis.

    A friend had MS, along with throat cancer. She had been abused by her family. You could hear it in her language'ing. She spoke of being unable to escape (&, of course, not being allowed to speak her truth, the throat is our communication centre). The trauma was locked in her body. I don't know if you've come across Neurologist Dr Rob Scaer's book? The Body Bears The Burden: Trauma, Dissociation and Disease (this is one of his presentations) https://youtu.be/Vr7lsIXazp8 Let me know if you are interested and I will share an ebook with you.

    #3 I did slowly move past the loss of my dominant hand and try to work out ways to use the hand I'd have left. But the bigger picture looms large and I consistently will lose pieces of myself over time. My medical care is not impressive. Hasn't been for a very long time, but it is my hope and perception that it is getting better.

    #2 You actually prescribed yourself a very powerful medicine in this reply. A word like FLARE produces an entirely different response in your subconscious and body. I remember during breakfast how you caught your own hyper-vigilance. Doing so will most assuredly be a lonely and ever-present process, but the opposite is relief.

    Cultivate every single sigh of relief you can. There is energy and power and potential movement available past the sigh of relief that will elude you if you dwell in the absence of crucial body parts.

    While the concept is simple, there is nothing but your own resilience in your drive to write that will propel you to learn how to relax when every instinct wants you to tense and tense harder.

    Thanks for owning the resolve to push publish on this account, @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee. It matters. Your effort will ripple to others and within yourself.

    #15 I understandvypur frustration about the number of remakes. However it is nothing new. Cecille B DeMille remade "The Squaw Man" at least four times between 1913 and 1936. The Maltese Falcon had been made 6 Times before the Humphrey Bogart version - and that was just in the sound era. Sometimes people like an old atory but like to tell it differently.

    #11 @Martin Wright, in fairness to a sector of the HR community (mostly those who do retained search), capability is often given just as much weight as experience. I'm sure that's how Lou Gerstner went from Nabisco to IBM and resurrected the moribund company. It's the contingency and temp folks who do exactly what they're told by their clients -- "Must have background A, worked at a company like B, done tasks C, D, and E, and can't have more than X years of experience." If any of those criteria are missing, out goes the "we're proceeding with candidates who more closely match our requirements" message.

    Yet my own experience with people in media is not as encouraging as yours. If I see another re-make of a film that's only 25 years old -- like the upcoming made-for-TV version of "Dirty Dancing" -- I'm gonna hafta hurt someone.

    I've drawn blanks when I mention "a rosebud moment" or describe something as being "as non-repetitive as 'Begin the Beguine'" or say that "he's as cuddly as James Tyrone" or ask "have you left no sense of decency?" I was alive to hear the last one said "live," but the others occurred long before I was born.

    #10 @Robert Cormack, gray is a deceiver. My girlfriend in college began to go gray before she graduated. A colleague from my film producing days had gone totally gray by 28. And I could be un-gray in under 5 minutes if I uncapped a bottle of Just For Men.

    But I'm proud of my gray. I earned every single hair of it (including all the ones that stopped growing).

    What amazes me most is this anomaly: people in this country (who consider me, based solely on age, to be past prime) cast their votes for presidential candidates aged 69 and 70. I'm old enough to be president but too old to be of any value in my range of professions.

    I take solace in this. At my last annual physical, my doctor said, "If I'd never seen you and only had your test results to go by, I'd guess you were about 23... and an elite athlete."

    #9 @Shelley Brown, Champagne, to me, is like its homonym -- sham pain -- and I realize those bubbles can vanish like a hypochondriacal malady in just a few hours. There also is something suggestively male about uncorking. That one explosive moment can't sustain itself for more than a moment.

    That is why I gravitate toward wines like that ancient Lafite. It gains a somber mellowness, the taste of which lingers and stays with you for years. The memory alone can rejuvenate me.

    Oldarexia's a wonderful neologism. Yet it sounds slightly abnormal -- like anorexia -- unless you interpret it as "a loss of oldness" (a quality I desperately want my body to learn so it matches the state of my mind).

    Sometines it can vary with the young too. Especially elwhen they find out the latest thing was tried out years ago as wrll.

    What @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee needs is exposure; syndicated preferably. The 'gofundme' is already becoming passé, and Joyce's unsentimental, honest writing deserves the best platforms. There are bloggers that post in the Huff and other major newspapers, but I don't know if it's paid work. If this buzz ended up as a syndicated media piece, the public would be stirred to humanitarian ire and help would come naturally - by far the most honest act in our jaded world. Like John #44 said.

    If we can help get Joyce's writing and name associated with an organization, it opens her up to more PR and more opportunities to get crowd sourced patron support for her writing.

    I suspect most of it is about searching through websites these days, but a little mentoring from you on how you got your writing gigs might help her focus in on the best approach.

    #31 They did not know that my dad set up TRW Consumer HQ and Branches and my mom worked for the Board of Education. I worked for the State and was governor appointed to the Behavioral Health and Therapy Board. Also, the Arab, Jewish, Gay and Military communities had saved my life and I could not be anti-Semitic or anti-government... but they none the less tried to paint me as such. Then, my husband came down with cancer and I was assaulted again. I then had to face the system once again, begging for help, as a family in crisis only to discover our previous hard work had fallen off an evolutionary path for various reasons. I myself am disabled and was penalized when an employer over stated my wages. Not only that, this employer advertises that they accept disabled and veterans but they have a hostile work environment with discriminatory practices. Staff calling those they serve as vultures and mocking people when safety practices are not adhered to. I was facing homelessness again and still have to figure out a way to sustain myself without depending on a system that is unforgiving and fluxes by the whim of politicking. It is nothing short of psychological torture. But that is something I can survive. I've done it before and I'll do it again. 2 of 2

    #31 I was homeless as a teen. I brushed myself off and got back up and became a professional, tucking everything away in my big toe, pretending nothing happened. Then my daughter was almost abducted which brought it all back. Then I had a nasty custody issue and my daughter was homeless, got mixed up with human trafficking. So, I chased her down and got her off the street, however, the system was less than helpful. I decided to try to fix this becoming part of the solution and joined the parent networks and got on the local councils and boards. One was the Children's Mental Health council and worked with families as an advocate to navigating the system. Talked to the community, stakeholders and shareholders communicating with policy makers... Parents shared their nightmares and I was perplexed but optimistic. Then we were caught in a mortgage fraud [they packaged a 2nd variable in our 1st fixed without our knowledge]. I tried to bring awareness to the parents & youths dilemma through the tea party as disabled and incarcerated and youth are suffragettes and lack lobbyists with money to fight on their behalf. This made me a target, I was naive, I'll admit it. However, they tried to defame me and paint me as a bigot and anti-government person. 1 of 2
