[i][b]I am not afraid to grow old and have gray hairs.I anticipate it and actually excited to know how it's like to be old.But the only fear that's for sure's gonna scare me are the questions: "will I be taking care of by my kids?" , "will they still love me even if I become forgetful and hard to handle?" or "will one of them have me stay at their house and pamper me?" Those are just some of my questions that I guess I am afraid to know the answers.That's why I am telling my boyfriend that I am giving myself until 55 years old and hoping when I reach 56 I will be staying 6 feet under the ground.Because I am afraid that my kids might not take care of me. esp.if they already have a family of their own. But basically I am not afraid to see my wrinkled face and see the gray hairs.I am just afraid that I will be alone without someone taking care of me.[/b][/i]

Hey hey! Well, I'm not afraid of getting older. Maybe just concerned about my health and how I can manage my well-being when I get to the 50s and up. I'm just curious how I'd look and what is my status when the time comes. Status, meaning how I will fare in life emotionally, physically, financially, etc. I think I'll do fine. I still like to play basketball when I reach 90+ years old. But I try not to worry too much. Eventually, we'll get older and we'll pass away when the time comes. Let's enjoy each day we have! Take care my dear friend!

Yiz! eheheh. I missed posting. I was out for days. It was our last week in training. Time to do the real work on Tuesday. Yeah, I am trying to at least slow down in smoking. I am at around 5-6 sticks a day. 1 per break. Yeah, I'd best continue to take care of myself. My weight's better now. 59 lbs total. ehehehe. I'd be signing off in a while also. Maybe 5 more minutes. Take care pinks. Goodnight and Sweet Dreams! Say hi to Neil for me just in case I go offline. God bless you both!

Hello Pink! What is there to be afraid of old age.Everyone will grow old in due course as this is the go of the world.Now I am in my seventies and doing fine.now our children are away from us and don't expect anybody would come to our help when we will be immobile after another few years.uptill now we have not depended on our children.God will make arrangements for our welfare in those days.thanx.

Yup I am not actually afraid of getting.What I am afraid of is to grow old alone and with noone who is going to take care of me.And I know God will take care of me by the time I reach my prime years.

Exactly our children will see how we take care of our old folks and hopefully they will do the same when we grow old.

I don't know if it's fear, who wants to grow old?..anyway, I just think that another year is another life that God will give to you. it's better for me to get old, than to die in an early age. and I do believe that if you take good care of your parents, your kids will do the same thing to you.

Hi pinks. I am not afraid to grow old. What I fear is will I reach that age. We'll never know what will happen in the future. I fear for my health which I have been having problems since I was 25. I fear that I might not see my future grandchildren. I just do hope that I live longer so I'll experience being a grandmother. LOL. HUGZ!
