Symmetrical life

Posted on: March 29, 2019

Three items appeared on my feeds that reminded me how symmetrical human life can be.

The first was an anecdote about a 50-year-old woman who reflected on how she felt more like a 16-year-old, at least mentally.

The other two were news articles about apps to help caregivers of the elderly with dementia.

Not every 50-year-old can relate to feeling 16, nor do all elderly develop dementia. But there is some truth in all accounts.

The uncertainties and tribulations in life continue mid-life and beyond. The elderly with dementia seem to regress to toddler or even infant state with a loss of physical and mental faculties.

Spare a thought for the sandwiched middle who have to take care of people at both ends.
