Not Sure What to Do

I've a BA in Social Science. Graduated in 1992. I'm not sure which graduate program I want to enroll in. Community Development attracts me because I'd like to develop housing for very low-income disabled people. I've experience in grant proposal writing.

The tough part: I often think I'm too old. There are so many bright young students out here. Wouldn't employers prefer to hire them? My cognitive abilities are deteriorating. Menopause has affected my ability to remember information. As a result, I have become "slow" in my thinking.  

At other times I simply feel too lazy to attend professional school and that makes me feel very guilty. Almost all of my immediate and extended family members earned graduate degrees. I wouldn't mind earning more money so I could live in a house and set aside some money for retirement.

Can anyone out there relate? I feel alone in my "slowness". It shows at work.

I barely remember what I had for dinner last night. Am I going thru menopause too?<br />

I need to return to college too. Education doesn't hurt anyone. Even though there are those bright ones out there, We're the wise ones that have had the experience of life behind us.<br />

Just go for it Jennifer.
