A lot of getting older sucks balls.
I don’t like the tissue paper skin or the lines around my eyes and fuck those wiry gray eyebrows. I don’t like that my body creaks. I hate the permanent nerve damage in my feet. My feet are nearly always hot and on pins and needles. My doctor says they will stay that way. I don’t like that. I don’t like not being able to read small print, even with my readers. I don’t want my body to fail me at all, but it’s failing a little.
It’s not all gray hair and thin skin and achy bones. There are some perks to getting older.
