Women get happier after age 85

Hang on ladies.  If you can make it to age 85, you’re likely to be happier.  A survey of 8000 women found that 30% of them were diagnosable with depression.  Why are women so miserable?  Until age 85, we’re responsible for most of the household and care-giving chores.  We’re exhausted from taking care of other people, putting ourselves last and sacrificing for everyone.  Considering this level of exhaustion, it comes as no surprise to learn that the married men from the survey were much happier than the women, but the married women were depressed.  The single, divorced and widowed men were also depressed.  What’s the reason for women finding happiness after 85?  Psychiatrists say that it’s because most of them were widowed.  They enjoyed living alone.  Ladies, it’s time to take care of ourselves first as much as we can.
