Unfortunately, this practice of not wanting to go to the store, or the flea market, or to visit people because I don’t want to spend any money has worked to my disadvantage.

You know there are Baby Boomers and Generation X’ers? I was born in 1961 and I don’t feel I fit into either one of those demographic labels. If you were born in the early 60’s, you know what I’m talking about — we are the non-labeled group. There is no one talking directly to us. We are the Baby Boomer leftovers. Just another example of how I’ve always felt invisible. OK, I won’t go there, how can I change this?
