  • I'm concerned about loss of mental capacity. I'm already disabled physically which takes away most of my independence, but not being able to reason, etc. is totally scary!

  • Didn't read the article, but I would have to say falling apart (failing health). I can deal w/ sagging, gray hairs, & fine lines, but not the major health issues that change your way of life or even your independence.

  • With everything going on, even before I read the "huffing", my answer was not being able to take care of myself financially. I have a little profit sharing where I work, but I have a feeling my social security will not be there when I'm ready for it. I'm only a few short years away. Our wonderful Government has given it away to everyone else.

  • Since I have a chronic health condition, my biggest fear is just being able to age! But, late at night when I can't sleep, sometimes I do worry more about my husband dying before me. Or I think about if my son were to get sick. Other than that, in the light of day, I can't work up a good give a sh*t about a lot of stuff. Right now, I'm broke and I have to rebuild my retirement savings (which weren't much) and find a new job. So my worries are more immediate. Tomorrow, next week, next month.

  • I have several back up plans and I have been setting money aside for myself and I have my own company so I believe I will be okay.

  • Considering I'm not even half way to 50, I don't have those specific concerns yet but I do worry that when I do reach that age I'll look back and have regrets, or feel like I didn't accomplish what I could have with my life.
