My issue with aging and the physical signs of it aren't how I look, but the fact that it's proof my body isn't doing what it's meant to do very well anymore.

Like grey hairs... they don't upset me because of how they look, they upset me because they're proof that my body is no longer making the... whatever in that particular follicle.  The wrinkles I now see in my elbows (WHAT??) are evidence that my skin isn't keeping up quite the same anymore.

It scares me.  Despite what some companies would like to tell you, there really isn't a "cure".  Sure, I can work to slow the aging... disintegration but it's going to happen.  Yes, I want to continue to be a healthy person as I continue to age, but my body is still wearing out.  As we speak.  So for me, it's not so much "I'm getting old" it's... "my body is wearing down" and that's a thought I have a hard time with.
