Fears of Aging

Do you know what I worry about as I climb the steps of life?

I fear that one day I’ll be old and I won’t be able to see what everyone else sees  —

that my eyebrows are covering my entire face.

Do you have any reservations about aging?

Don’t forget to take my reader survey! HERE It’s painless.  I promise!

    I don’t know how I got here to your blog…but may I say…this post made me laugh for almost 10 minutes.

    Thank you.

    I’ll be back I’m sure.

    Speaking of eye brows, I hope my daughters would be as nice to me as I’m to my mom and pluck them (or give her a razor) so she’ll be able to see. 🙂
    But alas, we have kids in another generation and I have my doubts about seeing too.

    I fear the mind going too. That is how I justify my Freecell, Penguin and blogging tendencies. All that stimulation HAS to be keeping the senility away!

    Oh, and incontinence. That worries me. No sign yet, but according to most women who have been through childbirth, it will be racing up on me!

    I agree with the above posters. That hair is liable to pop out about anywhere, but I must say there’s not as much on my legs now. So I guess there’s always a silver lining somewhere!

    My thought is it’s better than the alternative..which is dying. I mean I’m looking forward to going to heaven but there are still a lot of things I’d like to do here on earth first! Like see my girls grow up the rest of the way and someday get married & give me a grandchild! They tell me grandkids are so much fun! Plus I’ve given them the mother’s curse which is I hope you have one just like you and I want to see if it comes true!!!! lol

    I’m already here. Gravity always wins. Stuff sags, even eyelids.

    Hair sprouts on chin and face.

    Luckily, the eyesight starts to fail at the same time, so you don’t notice it so much.

    At times like that, it’s good to realize that we’re lucky to be growing older…some folks never get there.

    I fear having to watch people I love get ill, or die. My parents are starting to lose friends and relatives, and I’m so sad for them.

    Oh, and my breast sagging. I fear that, too.

    Okay, your commenters are freaking me out. LOL I had one fear about aging, but I can’t remember what it is. Oh yeah. I fear losing my memory.

      Jill, I feel the same way. I’m getting very scared! I now fear getting tufts of hair all over my face to go along with my eyebrows. Thanks guys.

    I don’t have fears of aging but I have fears of growing old alone. I know they’re completely irrational but I’m surrounded by couples and I feel entirely too old at 30. I should be in my prime and instead I’m feeling doomsday scenarios. YUCK. And just remember that age is a matter of the mind … if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter! 🙂

    It’s a little too late for me to start worrying about that now, don’t you think…but thanks for reminding me!
    P.S. FYI…extra hair in the eyebrows will be the least of your worries…it’s all the other hair you’ll suddenly start sprouting you should be concerned about…oh and where it starts disappearing!
    Aren’t you glad I shared THAT with you?
