Yes Cll and other medical conditions change your life all right. We have moved into a retirement block. I am not even 60 yet and my husband is only 62 and not yet retired. Once a upon a time I thought the idea of theses retirement blocks were terrible. Its shunting old people into gettos where they should just be a part of normal society as they are part of normal society. I have now changed my mind. Since the beginning of the year I have had infection after infection mostly throat infections. I have lost count of the antibiotics I have taken. My husband has diabetes and Parkinsons both managed well with medication. But there was no escaping the fact that we were not the people we once were. When we meet up with people of the same age we seem old and tired. We felt we had to move while we could and wanted to rather than wait until we had to or perhaps couldn't. I have to say we love the community here. There is a sense of belonging. We feel safe and secure. Have we done the right thing? Only time will tell.
