    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...

    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...

    Everyone older than 25 roll your eyes now. Okay now that that is done I will say that I hate aging. I am a 25 year old male and my hair is falling out. I hate it. There is nothing that can be done about male pattern baldness. No magic hair style, no magic pill, no magic anything...

    Time Goes So Fast....

    I can't believe I am going to be 26 soon. I feel I have achieved fudge all with my life and it depresses the hell out of me. I have no partner, no friends left and my only social life consists of spending time with family or going to exercise classes alone. I also still live at...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
