I have been denying that I have been getting older for some time. I have been able to wave off a lot of symptoms.
Heart attack, plantar fasciitis, difficulty losing weight, osteoarthritis in my thumb. No problem. There is a fair amount of grey in my hair, but the red hair is good at hiding it.
But now I can no longer deny that I am getting old. Today I found some grey eyebrows. Evidence staring me in the face when I look in the mirror. No doubt about it, I am getting old. It is down hill from here.
