I Hate Getting Old

    Painful Old Bones.

    I think the worse part is joint pain and gradual loss of strength.I have to ask for help or not get something done.I've been a capable woman and now I feel I'm slipping.It can feel depressing but we have to cope.

    I don't think I hate growing old as much as I love being healthy. So I cheat age by staying healthy. I feel great :)

    Aging

     I hate getting old. Physically, you lose tone and you get wrinkles and stuff like that.  Mentally, your fluid intelligence declines.  For life in general, you get more responsibilities and worries unlike childhood which is very carefree.
