How old do I feel inside?

Mentally, in many ways, I still feel like I'm 24, inside. HOWEVER, MY BODY TELLS ME A DIFFERENT STORY!!! Chronologically, I'm 55 years old...a senior citizen at many locations. Physically, I often feel like I'm 98 years old.

 

How can I reconcile these differences?

 

Aging is so CRUEL!!!

Things that I used to be able to do, I can barely remember anymore. OH, that's another thing, the mind is going, too. Or you might say GONE.

:wacko:

Janice,

 

Stroke + age = stink lol. How's that for a simple math equation?

I turned 54 this year so the creeping upward of age plus being post stroke has taken it's toll.

 

I had my daughter as an older Mom (I was 38) I was told she'd keep me young. Sometimes that's true; as we go through the teen years though sometimes I feel I'm aging faster trying to keep up with her lol.

 

What I strive to do is keep the "healthy" brain cells churning by reading, surfing the net daily and playing computer games. Volunteering here at Strokenetwork also helps me to keep my brain active.

 

I've rambled lol - sorry - DON'T give in to age and stroke deficits I say.

Hey Janice:

 

 

 

I believe age is just a number & by keeping active lifestyle you can still be young. for your memory problem, have you tried using calender or organizer.

I have a calendar on my cell phone, however, I have no 'events' worthy of keeping track of,other than doctor appointments, hair cut, and birthdays to keep track of.
