Fighting old!!
Hi CS,

I find I am not finding aging much fun when I look at my naked body!! I mean I think, feel and am as active as someone half my age and I am enjoying my life but the normal aging process is not for sissies. I get resentful at times as it feels unfair!! I do all in my power, within the abilities of my purse, to keep in tip top condition, but oh heck!!

Will this phase pass and I will eventually just accept it all? It seems like a war is waging at present!!

So true -- Aging is not for sissies ! Someone once said that getting old is like being progressively punished for a crime you did not commit ! It is a phase of life full of requirements to adapt, consolidate, adjust, and accept loss --- hair goes from places where we rather like it, and appears in places where we don't need it, finctions that we took for granted need more effort than before. But the main thing to be said for aging, is that it's generally much better than the alternative
