    It's My Worst Fear

    It's my worst fear because it will happen, the only way to keep from aging is to die young (and I don't want that, either). I'm in my late teens, and I already feel old. I really miss the way my life was when I was younger. It's scary to think that not only will I never get...

    People Make Such A Big Deal.

    I'm kind of two ways about this.... I myself don't want to age because my looks will go. I know that's terrible to say but hey, we're here for the truth. I guess I hate it because men are still deemed handsome when they're older but women? Women are seen as past it when they're...

    Why I Don't Want To Age

    I know i'm only 14, but i still find that too old. I am terrified of wrinkles. I try to take care of my skin to avoid wrinkles for as long as possible. I want to be young forever. I wish i was 5 years old again. Most teens want to get older as soon as possible, but i really don't...

    All Over Soon.

    i feel like it's all going to be over then and no one will want me anymore. even as that sentence rages against the wiser and stronger insides of me, it still feels like a terrible truthity.

    16 And Scared!

    I know being sixteen isn't really something to be scared of. But the reason I'm stressing is because my dad is 51 and my mom is going to be 40 in March, again doesn't seem like much. But I'm just scared because it feels like my life has gone by so fast and soon my mom and dad...

    Wish I Could Choose When I Died

    I think about getting older all the time. It's actually a fear of mine to grow old then die. And not knowing when kills me. I don't want to miss more than I already do being alive. To never see my kids or husband or mother, is too much for me. I love them all so much and don't...

    Old Lady La

    Wow!  Age is all relative.  How old would I be if I did not know how old I am?  I would be 37.   Inside I am still young with a chance for a future and plans to impress.  Outside I am 63 year old lady with knee replacements and a broken ankle.  I watch my over weight self...

    Ugh! I Don't Want to Get Old!

    OK, I'm not "old", but I've definitely seen the first signs of change, physically, in my life. For instance, I had a car wreck a couple of years ago, and it caused tissue damage in my knee. Now my knee hurts whenever it is getting ready to rain. That statement wreaks of...

    I am horrified of aging,

    specifically my face and neck. It's much more than just being scared or annoyed by it. It's an all consuming, horrifying obsession. I know it's due to being brought up to believe that women are only worth how young and good they look. Especially when it comes to being appealing...

    Time Goes So Fast....

    It's Beyond Comprehension

    I suppose, if anyone knew my whole story, they might find it ironic that someone who has battled severe depression for years and engaged in self-injury and attempted suicide would be terrified of the passing of time. Life is on fast-forward and I can't find the button to slow it...
