And I am still depressed.
Living in the old folks home is, by itself, depressing. There are a jillion petty things to annoy one. They are, each inself, too petty to mention, but they accumulate for eight years and you want to tear your hair out.
It used to annoy me a little that people crowded into the lobby when we have music and wheel chairs cannot get through. So I worked with staff and eventually that petty annoyance was resolved. People moved inside and left the way clear.
...And then the staff all changed. Now we have a new staff, and the lobby is cluttered again. Ho hum.
We used to have to wait interminably for dining room service, and we worked with dining room personnel on that problem. Finally we got good service. Then the staff all changed. Now we have even longer waits for each meal. Gad. You see what I mean?
First there was no suggestion box, and then there was, and now there isn't. We waited years for closed circuit TV for announcements and entertainment, then we got it, and then we lost it. First we had bus service, and then we had none, and then we had bus service, and then we had none, and then... well, you see.
Not one problem is big enough to make you move. Not one problem is serious by world standards. Not one problem would make you cry. But cripes... day after day, time after time, and you want to scream ENOUGH.
Think twice about getting old. It is not for sissies.
