If anyone who read that article was not already depressed, they surely were after they read it. It was basically a laundry list of all the horrible things that will happen to us as we age — did she miss anything? What a downer!
I kept reading, hoping that there would be some redeeming thoughts. There were none. The last paragraph said that depression is not inevitable and that Moab has a lot to offer for seniors and their families — perhaps Prozac, Zoloft, Valium... or a senior discount at the liquor store?
I notice that the photo of Antje Rath appears that she hasn’t reached the age of disintegration herself, so she still has all the misery she described to look forward to.
I had to turn on the national news to feel better.
There are many people in Moab still enjoying life who are in their 70s (myself included) 80s, 90s and beyond. We accept the limitations of our age and don’t need to have it rubbed in.
Maybe Antje was using the power of suggestion to bring in business.
