  • The hundreds of times I have been doing counseling with a couple who expressed this sentiment at the beginning of their counseling program reminds me of one of the most ridiculous advertisements of a product being offered: “just three easy payments,” “just three easy steps,” etc. How do they know that? And furthermore, if I am stupid enough to believe that offer, I should be ashamed of my use of my God-given intelligence if I buy that product or that offer.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    Is it important to compare Medicare Part D prescription drug plans every year? My pharmacist recommends it, but it’s such a hassle sorting through all those different plans. What can you tell me?

    Dear Confused,

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    In the news last month there was a public health alert urging all baby boomers to get tested for hepatitis C. Is this really necessary, and if so, what are the testing and treatment procedures?

    Dear Wanda,

  • When in your life did you feel “I don’t need anybody” or  “I can do it all myself”? When did this happen in your life? What took place to develop this thought?
    Now, some of you had to fend for yourselves when you should have been able to depend on others to help you. This can happen when adults in your life have virtually abandoned the responsibility to care for you, so you were forced to grow up and survive by taking good care of yourself, or you may not have survived.

  • Once when I was a kid, I had the audacity to ask my grandmother why she was wearing so much makeup. And believe me, it was a lot. Not in the bold eyeliner and big lashes kind of way, but just thick. Like if she talked too much it would start to fall off in chunks.
    Early in our lives we learn to filter the words we say. That’s part of growing up. Now that I’m grown up, I try to censor what comes out of my mouth. Of course sometimes what I think is not quite as charitable.

  • I saw on the news where this one state had a seat belt law that you had to buckle up your dog, and if you were caught with your dog not buckled up it was a bigger fine than it would be if you were caught with your child not buckled up. When I grew up and someone mistreated their children people would say that they are treating their children worse than you would treat a dog. A lot of dogs now are treated better than a lot of children.

  • Having had the privilege of being able to help many survivors (more than a hundred) of childhood abuse, I’ve heard the many memories that were presented by the adults who have been able to, eventually, recover from the devastating effects of this type of horror.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    My wife, who’s 60, is on my health insurance plan through my employer. When I retire in a few months at 65, and go on Medicare, what happens to her? Do we have to purchase private insurance, or is there some kind of Medicare coverage for dependent spouses?
