From a discharge summary:
"Patient is a 37-year-old middle-aged man..."
I was horrified to read that! 37 is NOT middle-aged!
Although then I told this to my husband and he argued that 37 very well might be the middle of your life. And it's almost definitely the middle of your productive life.
But I also feel like for someone with a career that requires education, the 40s should be the peak of your career. And as someone who is nearing that point, it's a lot of pressure. Maybe it would be better to be middle-aged now...
I’m with you- I always thought of 40-60ish as middle age. As someone who plans/hopes to work ‘til 70, I am really hoping not to feel “old” at that point. If you figure a 45 year professional career, 25-40= early career; 40-55= mid-career & 55-70= late careerReplyDelete
Ha! Probably written by a medical student in their early 20s :)ReplyDelete
