not really! every age has its own beauty,every wrinkle on the face and evry grey hair on the head represent somthing from your past.When the time comes you get what you are supposed to get .You can not prevent it but you can delay it by eating health ,having regular exercises and keeping out of stress as much as possible.Loosing my mind would make me scared the most about getting old as the mind is the manager of the body.I would be scared that i would not be able to remember my kids and grandkids.i might even end up kissing the man who i have never seen by thinking that is my husband.lol.would be funny

I'm not scared; it is natural that everyone will get to this stage of life. I only wish that everyone will be in a good health when he/she reaches this stage, so take care of yourself and your body. Honesty, I'm afraid of cognitive diseases like Parkinson and Alzheimer diseases.

No, I'm not.  

I am scared of getting selfish by getting old. I mean mentally.

For me what it really scares me of  getting old would be being alone (as someone else said before) or not behaving or dressing  according of my age. I have seen people older than me (15 or 20 years older than me) and trying to dress like a university student…. Terrible!!! Hahaha!
