I'll Never Turn 50


Every woman on TV is between 17 and 23 and every one of them is gorgeous.  Youth screams at us from the advertising industry!  I see women every day who apparently want to hide the fact that they aren't teenagers anymore by dressing like them, dyeing their hair and talking slang.

As a society, we've developed a denial complex about aging, particularly among women.  We don't value the gifts age brings.  This can be dangerous, even deadly. We pretend we're still 18 and at the top of our game.  We act as though we'll live forever. We experience the loss of youth as painful.
 

 

When I look in the mirror, I don't look too closely at the wrinkly places around my eyes.  I notice my typing hands, the skin thin and fragile, the veins standing up bluish through the wrinkles.  Those couldn't be my hands!

Those are a few obvious signs of aging. If I can ignore those, it's even easier to ignore the more subtle ones. I get out of breath easily when I walk.  My feet hurt.  But I don't want my friends to know, so I pretend I'm fine. I'm also getting more forgetful and' never mind, I forgot where I was going with this.

I've gotten really, really good at thinking of something else when I notice some new sign of aging or a new ache or pain.  In those rare moments when I don't cut my observations off at the pass, I realize I'm in trouble and that it's getting worse. I've always been strong enough to push on through.  Anyway, I've got stuff to do. No time to worry about getting older.

Of course, it's a lot easier to observe a downward spiral in somebody else.  My friend Susan, who I've known for about six years, is showing many signs of senility. She's in her fifties!  She blames her many lapses on a head injury she got several years ago.  I've been observing this because she's been staying with me temporarily for a couple of months, and it's really disturbing.  At first she was burning her meals (and my pots and pans) every other day, but now it's daily.  I can see that her 'senior moments' are frightening her, and she doesn't want to discuss what's happening to her. She tells me the same stories again and again and asks the same questions.

My friend Buryl has it even worse.  He slurs his speech and doesn't hear very well.  His vision is so poor that I cringe when he 'washes' the dishes because I know I'll just have to re-wash them as soon as he's done.  He doesn't have medical insurance and he's living out of his van.  Yet, he keeps assuring me that his next big break is right around the corner.

When it comes to growing old gracefully, denial is deadly!  You're the only one who can hear the early signs of trouble.  A toothache only gets worse if you ignore it.  Many health problems start out as whispers; if ignored, they turn into screaming pain' or worse.

Taking on denial isn't easy.  Human beings are masters at ignoring something if it isn't fun.  We've been taught that when you're in pain you should do something quickly to end it.  Then you don't have to remember that anything's wrong.  But, generally, when we refuse to deny something, we grow as people.  Therefore, we can allow pain to tell us that we should pay attention.  When we do this, the wisdom of aging emerges.
