You may not feel like you've gotten any older, but your body tells you differently. And these new healthcare professionals are not the older and wise folk you used to look up to and feel taken care of in their presence. They are not even your peers. The thought crosses your mind that maybe they should be coming to you for advice and sage wisdom as you might know a bit more about certain things that simple life experiences have taught you. But if you are lucky, as I am, they are competent, kind and efficient.
Life goes on. Doors close and windows open. There's always a new, innovative way of doing things and, if you wait a while, the old ways become new again. Finally, you learn that's how it is. With age comes wisdom and, if you're smart, patience. That's just the way life is...especially in the realm of modern medicine and healthcare management.
