How do you know when your old?

How do you know you've hit the stage where your finally old....
When being able to find the tums is the best thing ever at the moment.
It's 1230... I want to be sleeping and I'm needing tums... What has happened in my life that this feels too late and grease has me needing tums....
Anyone else or just me?
I’m so old my memory is in black and white.

@OlderSometimesWiser how many shades of gray are in it ?
When sleeping is your favorite thing to do.
When you hurt yourself but have no idea how you hurt yourself

When mines and friends' children I carried in my arms are now graduating University, getting careers, and marrying.
@QueenandCrown At the beginning of this century, I remember reading to a friend’s little girl, who was just two years old. Very recently I was reading to that child’s son. 🥹

@LandOfOz oh that's a nice change!!
LandOfOz · 61-69, M
@ColorMeRoz its very nice . Its true for me age is just a number

@LandOfOz May you live long enough to learn that the number is not 'just a number.' Unless of course you'd rather die before that? If you're in your 60s you'll already have noticed your deterioration.

When someone is
1.unable to find and make friends
2. Not able to relate with anyone and moves away due to low self-esteem
3. Unable to participate in any ongoing conversation
4. Gets secluded in life.. has no one to call or be called by no one.

These are some of the signs of one getting old early in life.
You feel old at your age? Cripes. Wait until you become senior! Tums are a temporary solution. Stop taking them. Develop some good eating habits. That or you will either develop an ulcer or need your gall bladder removed. Easy choice.
When you look in the mirror one morning and think jeez!

I can still sleep in a chair, on the floor, or propped up against something. But damn, getting back up and moving is painful.
ColorMeRoz · 31-35, F
@robb65 I feel that
Tastyfrzz · 61-69, M
When things start failing. My testosterone is now below 200. So I'm prepubescent again. My feet have been having more pain and my arches are falling. I'll try losing weight to see if that helps. No idea how im going to do this without moving. Retirement has hit and I'm gradually accepting it. Feels like being a preschooler without parents.
ColorMeRoz · 31-35, F
@Tastyfrzz I am so sorry your going through all this
Tastyfrzz · 61-69, M
@ColorMeRoz it's ok. It's normal. I'm lucky in that i can retire. Many guys i've known have kept working for too long. I think.things will get better if i can dump.this weight. That was hard to do when sitting at a desk working on a computer.
Tastyfrzz · 61-69, M
And as for the sex part...never had much in my life anyway so not missing much. Probably why i gained weight.
LandOfOz · 61-69, M
Its in the mind. Im 70 which i dont consider old
Mudkip · 31-35, M
I'll feel old when I'm in my 70s-80s
parasiteandhost · 31-35, F
I felt old at 30 honestly. When you start cramping up in your feet and legs and everywhere else, or the fact you dont like going out anymore lol. When you start saying "back to the grind"
OverTheHill · 56-60, M
When I turned 55, it really hit me that I really am on the second half of my life.

But even in getting old there are so many things to enjoy and appreciate even as our bodies slowly start to fade.
i always thought it was when the songs you associate with youth and rebellion start being used to sell things. often cars.
2ndtimeguy · 61-69, M
You start accepting you cant do the things you used to do your body wont let you but your ok with it!
When you are older than Mick Jagger, Al Pacino, or Joe Biden.
HumanEarth · 56-60, F
I dream in black in white and I remember these being in the stores

That's how you know you're old.

When you remember stuff and you talk about and nobody has a clue what you're talking about.

Like this vacuum tube tester. Do you know what is? Did you ever see one before? Why did they have them in the stores?
HumanEarth · 56-60, F
Here is something else I remember. These where everywhere when I kid. Less then a dollar you could buy a pack of smokes

When you start feeling achy.
ColorMeRoz · 31-35, F
@Spoiledbrat oh man that's daily for me too.
Not at 31-35, that’s for certain.
@bijouxbroussard Yes, and I have those older in my life too. I know you do too, and from them we are eternally young or needing to listen to them in their wisdom we are probably going to learn in our own way.
@thewindupbirdchronicles More and more I find myself having the experience of being the oldest person in various settings. I’m grateful to still have my father, but a large number of my friends haven’t lived to be the age I am now (64).
@bijouxbroussard I'm sure that's disconcerting, and I'm sure age comes with some kind of grace, but we are always on our own when faced with our age and finitude. I worry, though, while a long time away for me still, how will I feel when I reach the age of my father when he died?
Jarffff · 46-50
I have more aches and pains than pleasant tingly sensations.
Jarffff · 46-50
@ColorMeRoz Plenty of sleep and OJ, saith Dr. Jarfff
ColorMeRoz · 31-35, F

Jarffff · 46-50

Flipping channels and quiz show question was asking the lead singer of the Rolling Stones, and the contestant didn't know....that kind of freaked me out.
Berlynnc93 · 31-35, F
I like to know to lol I'm 31 and my 16 yo brother asked me recently when he can start considering me old so clearly it's a lot soon then I thought 🥹🥲
Gangstress · 41-45, F
When you go for a long walk up hills and cant get back to the car coz your knees have departed somewhere and you forgot your stick
mooncrest02 · 31-35, F
That might be like personal cause im 32 and dont need tums. Cant remember the last time i took them.
smileylovesgaming · 31-35, F
U are not old at all. Just reaching that age where work or kids get in the way of staying up late
1490wayb · 56-60, M

Pinkstarburst · 51-55, F

When you turn 60
ColorMeRoz · 31-35, F
@James25 what if I feel 60 lately lol
Whrn they play the music you grew up with in the supermarket 😭
@OogieBoogie Lol, the Beatles’ songs have been "elevator" music for awhile, now…😅
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@bijouxbroussard I remember when "Satisfaction" by the Rolling Stones came out. It was considered "too vulgar" by many. Some radio stations refused to play it. My friends were talking in amazement about the fact that someone wrote a song like that.

I remember joking that someday it would be elevator music.

Sure enough, years later, I walked into an elevator and it was playing, in that flute-sounding innocent Muzak style.
