You Know That You Are Getting Older When....

You know your getting old when.... At the start of a new day, those feelings you used to get as a teenager come back to haunt you all over again. You know, the feelings you used to get after a night out on the town with friends. Dancing, drinking and having a long walk home. The memories of the woozy head come flooding back, the unsteady walk feels so natural, the shaking hands as you try to eat a bacon sandwich which was the natural antidote and the ache from laying in a funny position. Often referred to as that morning-after feeling. I can't believe it was almost an everyday occurrence.

The problem was that I woke up this morning with the woozy head, the unsteady walk, the shaking hands and the ache from laying in a funny position. Deja vou of that oft fondly remembered morning-after feeling. The problem is that I didn't do anything the night before. With it comes the realisation of creeping physical frailty - I have just realised that that my back goes out more than I do these days!

You know your getting old when.... Your children purchase this book from Amazon: "The Baby Boomer's Guide to Caring for Ageing Parents" by Bart Astor. ISBN 0028616170. - The dilemma of caring for ageing parents is growing in importance, especially as a greater proportion of the population nears the age of 50. This thoughtfully developed guide is packed with practical information on facing legal issues, selecting long term care, determining the onset of conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer's, and more.
