Some things about us improve with age

My eyes are actually getting better. I sometimes doubt this because I’m slow to focus but I’ve always been slow to focus. What’s better is I catch myself hallucinating or misreading whereas, in earlier years, I didn’t know the difference. That’s a lot sharper perception going on in the little old brain. :slightly_smiling_face:

Chordy, may I ask you if you can keep reading for more than 2 hours daily or not? I know you take Zyprexa 5mg daily and am curious how have your focus been while on this medication.

I read for short intervals - like not more than 20 minutes at a time. Then, I “take a breather” and read for another 20 minutes. It’s slow going but library books give me 3 weeks and are renewable by phone. So, I’m good to go. :slightly_smiling_face:

I see. Your focus level is not very good but you made it by taking breaks. Good for you!

Right. It did hurt me professionally because I couldn’t read the music consistently.

Things improve with age until you get really old, and then you become a mummy.

I don’t know about that. I’m 74.

You’re that old? I imagined you about my age. I’m 58.

Yup. Born in '44.

Around age 50 things start improving for people with severe mental illness. Until you get up in your 80’s. Then you tend to come down with dementia. Some of us do anyway.

I don’t dare try to predict my future. I’d just like to learn to relax.

That’s a good idea, @chordy.
