Isn’t it time for the conversation about aging to grow up? (Story 1)

I know so many women in my demographic who either won’t disclose their age, or just outright lie. And, it’s no wonder. Society doesn’t exactly embrace the older woman (with few exceptions like French President Macron which I wrote about here). So, it was very exciting to learn about a new publication YOUAREUNLTD with its tagline: “It’s time for this conversation to come of age.”

It was even more exciting to write a story for YOUAREUNLTD about a young innovator who has invented a glove to alleviate tremors in people with Parkinson’s and Essential Tremors. The average age of Parkinson’s disease is 60, with 1 in 100 people affected (that’s 230 million worldwide). And, as I learned in the course of my research, it’s not only tough for sufferers to talk about their conditions, it’s not easy for their family and friends either. This is just one of the many conversations that needs to come of age! Read:  Fits Like A Glove
