I have noticed that in some of my family members also. I am fifty myself, but I do not feel that way. I am still the same person I was when I was twenty. I personally don't understand it. I find that to be a sign of weakness. but it is probably normal to a point. Like I said, some of my family members have become more sensitive. Maybe they are just content with things these days.

I know what you mean. My parents up there and they have been getting more and more cranky. When I see them it's like dealing with kids. LOL. I sometimes laugh because it just seems funny to me. I just hope I do not turn out that way.

most people who are aging have gone through that stage. You just have to understand their mood swings because of their changing hormones. They are really sensitive so better be careful on what you say. Respect and love them more not because they are aging but they deserve to.

I think it is normal for older people to be more sensitive and easily angry. As a you person, you have to understand this situation and do not react to their being sensitive. When they are angry, being silent is the best.

I think it's one of the usual changes that occur when someone is in their late years. They become very sensitive with the words we use and the actions they see in us. I have noticed that to my dearly beloved father who is now over 70 years of age. There were really times that we need to be careful what we show to him and select the words to use when we speak to him. The good thing about it is that at least, he isn't too forgetful at his age. He can still remember the memories of yesteryears when they had the good times with my mother.

I think no matter how old our mother is, we must not speak too loud. Heheheh... Well, my mom is 58 and she becomes harder to please. :) I have to explain everything clearly to her slowly and patiently. She always complains that I'm too busy with work and internet so that I don't have time for her, while I listen to her stories everyday! In the morning before I go to work and also after I come home from work. I know after I take a shower I lock myself in my room doing some work or getting online, but if she wants me to talk to her, I will talk to her. However, the complain goes everyday. :D

When one grows old, the issue of sensitivity is associated with the biological changes within the body causing one's behavior based on the environment especially being irritable and agitated easily. Simply put, this issue is a common sign of aging and practically the only you could do is to have patience, perseverance and most especially an open mind.
