The Column of Disquiet - I Taught Myself How to Grow Old

I started writing this in early June, but set it aside for a few weeks so that I could write my last column (the uplifting one about mental health.) I was okay with setting it aside because I had reached a point where I had kind of gotten stuck, and it took a lot of re-reading, re-writing, and staring at the cursor blinking in the Word document for me to understand how to articulate what I wanted to say here. 

I'm still not 100% certain I'm happy with where this ended up, but it ended up close enough to where I needed it to be that I could say that it was finished.
