Stuff happening lately that reminds you you're getting older

Recommended Posts

State your age and something new that's recently occurred that reminds you you're getting older.

42 - recently started getting gray arm hairs.  I also need to pull things further away from my face to read small print.

47 and the memory has really faded.  That might be the most disturbing for me.  Running injuries that lasted a week or two now can take a few months.

My 15 year old daughter refers to Snoop, P Diddy and Nelly as "Old Man Music."

Your real name wouldn't be Steve by chance?  And were you camping w/ your wife 13 years ago by chance?

43 -

need to sleep with a CPAP

when throwing out the garbage from my 13 yr old daughter's bathroom, found the packaging of feminine products.  Wasn't aware that Aunt Flow had visited her yet.

I'm still better than my 3 kids at hoops :shamgod:

I'm 43, and too many of these hit close to home for me.  

I get asked regularly, when getting my haircut, if I want my eyebrows trimmed.  This never happened prior to maybe a year ago.  

I have to take my glasses off (or contacts out) in order to read things on my phone, particularly at night.

Somewhat related.... I have started to use my Iphone flashlight feature, just to read menus at certain dimly-lit restaurants.  

Lastly, my left hip has been bothering me when I get out of my car lately.  Not stabbing pains or anything, but just enough discomfort that I have that "God... I'm getting old" thought go through my mind.  

Ugh.

28 thousand posts is pretty impressive for a 14 year old.

42 - I'm starting to feel pervy flirting with college-aged waitresses. 

I'll technically be a grandpa by the end of February.

I have actually been wanting to find a thread like this to get some info from similarly aged men about how saggy my balls have gotten recently, but I am not so sure that this board is the place to do that anymore .

45, and besides my gray hair thread, there's plenty of things... 

One that comes to mind is driving slower.  I'm in no rush.

I have to do this on my health insurance card to get the number off it.  I'm usually good everywhere else (menus, etc.)

One thing I learned back in my 40s, most restaurants have readers available for use.  I have about a dozen pair scattered around our house, my office, our cars, briefcases, travel bags. One of my biggest nightmares is to be caught somewhere without reading glasses.

54 - I wear glasses for distance but now have to take them off to read, especially in a dimly lit restaurant. I would rather sacrifice a little distance vision to be able to keep them on while reading but apparently, that's not how it works. Or I wind up looking over my glasses like a real old man.

I tend to spread myself thin on a lot of different projects and I find it harder to focus on one and at times get nothing done.

I'm 44 and I can't eat anything without getting heartburn/acid issues.  Just ridiculous.

My wife used to get it a lot with certain foods and drinking seltzer really helped.

37 - mainly that the music I grew up listening to like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, etc... is lumped in on the radio with the music all of you old people in here listened to like Rush and Zeppelin.  Otherwise, I’m prime.

By the way, had chronic lower back pain since I was around 34 and when I bought a tempurpedic bed they magically disappeared.  Still acts up from time to time but sleeping on an expensive bed has made all the difference.

On the plus side, though, we are very stable financially and if I want something, I just go buy it and it is no big thing.  The same could not be said in my earlier years.  If only the money and youth lined up better, but it does make it a little more tolerable.

Coworker had never heard of Nirvana, the band.

I went out to eat at a diner after a recent class with some younger people (mid-20's) One guy mentioned having a photo of his liked by Courtney Love. The girl with us asked who that is. He said he had to look it up and she was married to the guy who sang in Nirvana. She said she heard of Nirvana but I'm not sure if she really did.
