My blog addresses issues that impact us all as we age. Topics covered include problems unique to women as they get older, but also addresses the struggles of both men and women. I talk about the ways that modern medical technology has changed all of our lives as we age in a time of an uncertain future of increased longevity. Though I always consider modern medical research as well as health psychology perspectives into what I write, I often consider psychoanalytic ideas as important informants regarding how I understand human behavior.
