How do other older people on this site cope with the idea of getting old? I find myself getting more & more preoccupied with it as time passes. I can`t even bear to look in the mirror now because I`m so repulsed by the way I look.when I was in my teens twenties & thirties, all I heard from other people was how attractive I was, & it seemed that I was only valued for my appearance. I get the distinct impression That Iv`e outlived my use to society. then there`s the fear of all the diseases that lie in wait, Alzheimers, heart disease, stroke, etc. how do people deal with all that?
