Caducity is the infirmity of old age and senility. We know this thanks to the helpful description on the freewrite prompt today so we do not all have to go look it up. I feel like I am living it now after being so sick for the last weeks. I’m 60 years old, and this is ancient in SE Asia, so I am definitely in the demographic.
I have worked in nursing homes and given home health care to both young and old. I can say for sure that age is just a number. I have worked with young people who seemed very old and old people who were sharp as a tack both mentally and physically. It all depends on how sick you are, your attitude, and the steps you take to deal with your situation.
I am in a number of chronic pain groups online. Some of those have very young people in them who have very debilitating conditions that cause them to have trouble functioning on every level. They cannot do the tasks of daily living, people think they are lazy, and they just want to curl up into a ball and cry. When you read their posts, you would think they are 100 years old, and then at the end they say, “I am 19 years old.” This is the saddest thing I read on any given day.
Then I can go to nomad groups are read posts by people 80+ who are having the time of their lives roaming the world and having exciting adventures. Their health is good and they are making every moment count. These are the posts that make my day and help me to keep striving for myself.
My post is for the #freewrite daily challenge by @mariannewest. Freewrite is a great way to post on steemit when you do not think you have the time, or talent, or anything to say. It’s a great way to start regular posting on steemit. I know you can do this too! Here is Marianne’s freewrite prompt post for today. Give it a try and surprise yourself.

I lost "Half My Size" eight years ago by using natural methods. No tricks, just doing a bit better every day. I started on October 10 one year, and did not give up. Four years later, on October 5th, there I was - thin and healthy for the first time in my life. You can do it too!
