On a radio philosophy show this existentialist/phenomenologist was talking about the experience of illness and the way it is dealt with by the medical profession (capacities lost), and she mentioned that aspect of your feeling, how you feel in yourself, and was arguing that if that is OK, debility/pain/illness is bearable.

Certainly one's body gets worse (after what? 36?), one's mind goes downhill in memory at my age, and many ageing people experience the decay of the flesh and blood brain (anxiety, mood disorders), but many older people show a kindness and forbearance. I wonder if you can learn how to keep something safe? The Christian religion is full of references to unchangeable things, things you can rely on. Perhaps Buddhism makes a virtue of not providing any unchangeable things? But they say they take refuge in if not the Dharma then something else...perhaps the Sangha, the community?
