Sometimes when we experience a trauma such as a car accident, witnessing violence or abuse, our minds protect ourselves by shutting off our emotions. The same way our pain receptors shut off to manage intense pain, our mind suppresses strong, negative emotions during times of crises to protect our well-being.

Aging is a difficult process no matter what culture you identify with. Slowly losing your independence as well as your physical health can take a toll on a person both mentally and physically. Aging in a place different from your country of origin can make the process even more challenging for the elder as well as for his/her family.
