I am 47 yrs old but everyone thinks I look younger. I cant seem to quit seeing every little thing wrong as I age, I see brown spots, dark circles under my eyes, ugly hair, pale skin, sagging on top of eyelids. I just can't feel good about getting older. Does anyone els feel sick every time they look in the mirror

  • i am 36 yo and for the past year or so i noticed little changes like a few lines or droopier eyelids and it bothers me. i spent a year seeking out gray hairs which are not there...the one little good thing so far none. but am crazy looking and having hubby and sister look for me. they think i am nuts. i feel there are changes but not much can be done except to accept my badges of motherhood and wisdom(a friend told me that is her outlook). try to be healthy and take care of me as best i can and be happy with who i am. stressing just causes wrinkles! lol

  • I do feel a little sick when I look in the mirror, but mine is more for my fat than for my wrinkles and brown spots, although I have noticed a lot more of those spots lately. Ugh!

  • you are your own worst critic. Like stargazer said they're badges of life!

  • Me personally.

    Nope. At 48, I'm in my prime and more beautiful and sexier than ever before!!

    I continually get better with age... In my own mind/eyes at least.. LOL
