The Joy of Aging

This post is for Six Sentence Story. The prompt word – memory.

It seems lately that I’m aging faster than I’d like to, but I suppose everyone feels that way when they hit a certain age.

Looking in the mirror I see my older self but when I’m out and about carrying on with my day I don’t think of myself as looking as old as I do if you get my drift.

My husband loves to bug me about my memory not being what it used to. A song will come on the radio and he’ll say to me what band is that? It drives me crazy as I know I like the song and the band but for the life of me, I can’t remember who it is singing.

My wish is to not end up with Alzheimer’s as it scares the hell out of me.

  2. My father had dementia. It’s more than simple forgetting, which is normal with aging. He kept thinking dead people were alive and get lost trying to go visit them. It was heartbreaking. I hope my kids don’t have to see me like that.

    • One night at a family dinner my grandmother thought I was my cousins boyfriend. 😦 There are many different incidents I can remember about her and it’s so scary.

  3. There it is. Alzheimers is super scary to me. But aging in general, well I’ve been told it’s not for wimps, but I like the don’t give a shits that come with it, the wisdom of experience, and that I’m forgetful enough to forget that I’m not 18.

  4. Yes, I believe we do and I so totally relate. I’m of the opinion we’re as old as we allow ourselves to be. In my mind, I’m still 36 lol.
    I believe there is a lot of worry about alzheimer’s and other dementias as it is so prevalent. Seems everyone has family or friends who suffer from it.
