Not there yet, but my father who has Parkinson's disease who sleeps all the time and has trouble getting around, he is definitely old! But my mom who is only a couple of years younger still runs around like a teenager. However she does repeat the same stories over and over again.
It's not a number, it's how you feel. Jack LaLanne was in his 90's and he was still hitting the gym every morning and towing boats behind him as he swam. There are a lot of twentysomethings that can't do that.
It is funny, I am 5 years away (45) from being able to qualify for AARP, and I still get carded sometimes when buying alcohol.
don't say 46. i will be there in less then a mth. I know at 50, i will cry!!
Old is a state of mind.When you start thinking you're old,the body responds,then you start getting the associated problems.At 54,I take care of myself and remember to have some kid-type fun(cartoons,video games,whatever strikes me at the time) every day.I'm still highly sexed,enjoy 50 mile bike rides,and can keep up with most 20-somethings.Basically,if you don't want to get old,don't completely grow up,lol.
what i consider to be old isint really old its just how i see things like i see someone who is 25-38 as being middle aged when alot of people would say that 25 is still young
It's still a few years off....
40 is hitting me extremely hard it has nothing to do with the # rather all of the loss I have experienced in the last 8 years and some very traumatic events. It is not a happy day those who can be with me choose not to be and those who would happily be there are not here anymore.
I was only 22 and a kid said "hey Mister" then I knew I was old
guess when I can no longer ride my bike or drive one of my toy cars in a safe manner I will be old but hope for at least another 30 years would love to set a world speed record at 100 years old but right now I am only 65
Why make yourself feel old why not say I'm 46 and feeling great.I think 46 is still young :)
