    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Freedom Is Growing Old

    I can't take credit for these thoughts but I do agree with them. If you judge people, You have no time to Love them. As I've aged, I've become kinder to myself, and less critical of myself. I've become my own friend. I have seen too...
