So, it's hit me as of late.... I'm getting old(er)

I went to a bar Friday night and would have preferred to have been home, reading in bed. I can't sleep though the night without needing to pee. I need glasses to help me read. And I'm now using one of those bags on wheels to cart my school materials around campus.

what signs of your age are you noticing?

-grey hair. lots of it.
-crows feet
-can't remember the last time I was up from dusk til dawn
-reading glasses sometimes, when I'm tired.

was out doing some yardwork with my old man this weekend, and realized we have 111 years between us.

Don't mind any of it, really.

And Ms. Kitty, you're a beautiful middle aged woman...

It doesn't really bother me. And I can still rage all night in the right circumstances.

BUT, I just had the probably 4th person in the last month, whom I hadn't seen for a few months, tell me "man, you're getting gray!". I don't really notice it that much, but I guess it's happening.

Also the whole "first time your balls hit the toilet water" thing. That's less than cool. :lol:

I guess there's also that feeling that nearly anyone under the age of 25 is kinda (or full on) retarded. That could just be my normal curmudgeon-ness though.

at 50 i have become way more selective about how and with whom i spend my time. old injuries catch up and old habits die out. between my dad and i we have 130 years combined (he turned 80 on saturday). our chats together have never been better. :)

Besides my hair turning whiter every year, I actually feel younger.
Or shall I say I feel better now at 47 than I ever did at 27?

Both physically and mentally. I don't feel like I have slowed down at all. Just know what I want/need better, what works and what doesn't.

I'm now 50...
-My eyes have really started to suck recently. Glasses work for distance, but they now have to come off for up close. I keep handy the supermarket cheapo cheater glasses for really upclose work.
-I can't remember the last time i slept thru the night without a pee run.
-My hair has migrated south. less on my head, more on my ears, back, ass. Definitely greying.
-I have more difficulty with hearing people, especially if there's background noise. I ask people to repeat themselves alot.
-I can remember every last detail of a funny story...except who I told it to!
-I don't heal as fast anymore.
-Metabolism has slowed, I can gain weight very rapidly if I'm not careful.
-I am very aware that there's not a lot of time left on this planet, so I don't want to waste time...in all aspects of life.
-I've definitely slowed down. I'm more apt to sit and watch TV/play on the computer than go outside and get stuff accomplished.
-I guess there's also that feeling that nearly anyone under the age of 25 is kinda (or full on) retarded. That could just be my normal curmudgeon-ness though. (Cut and pasted Spidergawd's comment, since it perfectly describes the situation. LOL!).
-I'm smarter now.
-I'm dumber now.

something always hurts when I get up in the morning. usually my back.
I'm slower to heal
can't make it through the night without getting up at least once to pee
can't sit in the same position for longer than 5 minutes without getting stiff (and sometimes sore). indian style is out of the question these days. it's better since I started working out but I should probably be taking some kind of joint supplement at this point.
I have a really hard time remembering certain things (ie phrases or names). my memory definitely isn't what it used to be.
getting some more grey but not too much yet.
my teeth don't seem to be as strong as they once were. I swear I'm at the dentist every 2 months getting something repaired.

Every morning, 6:00 AM sharp, I take a nice healthy pee. You can set your watch to it.
at 6:45, without fail, I take a healthy dump, again, you can set your watch to it.


I just wish I would wake up before 7:00....

combined age w/ my Dad 142.
much, much slower to heal muscle realted or spine realted injuries.
every year the beard seems to get a lot more gray in it.
what is left on my head is catching up with it.

nope, not just you :plain:
my thought usually is: "and this is the generation that will be taking care of me when i am elderly... :undecided:...maybe i SHOULD have had kids?!"

And don't forget ladies, hit forty and those pubes are goin' bye-bye.


sooooooo NOT TRUE! :carla:
(i wish it was! :lol: )



i am now starting to be bothered by my greys - but ONLY cuz it makes people SEE me as old, cuz i certainly dont FEEL it most of the time! but that is why god invented colorists :D
altho i really hated noting that my eyebrows have started coming in grey :bang:

i make 'old lady noises' sometimes, with my aches and pains - i swear i can tell a storm is coming by how much my knees ache :lol:

the WORST part is the brick effing wall i hit in regards to my metabolism. FULL EFFING STOP. :bang:

but dangoltellyouwhaaa, i can keep up with most! :gregoir:
