  • I don't worry about GETTING old, I worry about FEELING old. I don't care what my age is, but I don't want to lose my outlook on life simply because my body is falling apart due to age.

  • The only thing I'm afraid of is health issues and pain associated with them. I have a strong family history of heart disease, diabetes and arthritis, so I am taking care of myself now to avoid those issues later. Wrinkles don't bother me.

  • No. It's a natural part of life. Why worry about something that for most of us is inevitable?

  • YES. OMG. I'd rather just die than get really old. I have enough problems now, I don't want to deal with all the afflictions old age brings. Ugh.

  • I am quite a few years older than most of you on here, I'm 52 and like all of you I want to be spared the health issues that go along with age. I'm already having problems with my knees, my own fault, I used to be a marathon runner, but hanging out with younger people keeps ne young at heart! I call gray hair, wisdom and wrinkles, character :)

  • Heck no...I'm excited to see that stage in my life. I don't understand why ppl do cosmetic surgery to prevent their bodies from doing what it's gonna do anyways. Just like I wonder how my son will look as an adult, I wonder how I'll look as I get older
