• I wish they got old. They died relatively young.
  • No. It saddens me more that my mom is so young and is battling cancer for the second time in her life (once when she was 38 and she's 55 now).
  • Nope. It saddens me that they still are smokers.
  • Getting old? I think 88 and 86 IS old.
  • Yes it does. My parents are still the care givers I mean they help us with our kids, but I can tell that they are starting to need our help. It's weird because for the last 10 or 15 years we have become friends. We were pretty equal in our abilities. I just don’t like that they are getting frail, because they have always been so strong..
  • My mum is 35! Unless you are saying that 35 is old?
  • They're dead!! and yeah, it still upsets me.
  • My parents died 14 and 7 years ago, at 64 and 69. They didn't get the chance to get old. Be grateful yours are still with you. Enjoy their company while you have it.
  • No, it saddens me that I am getting old. I can no longer read the small print on coupons.
  • nope... shes only young still. hasnt even hit 40!
  • Yes, I don't even want to think about it. I would be lost without them.
  • I didn't really think much about it honestly. Until today anyway. Now that grandma is gone I'm starting to realize that the people I love really are growing older. Cherish the time that you have cause you never know about really is true!
  • no being old means no more working and i mean that literally.
  • Yeah, very sad. That's why I'm struggling frantically to earn more money for my mom. I want to take her to travels abroad, as my own little way of repaying her. I know I can't repay her that much but it's what I want to do for her. Sometimes I look back and I realize that I've wasted so much time. I should have spent more time with her. Well, it's not yet late. This year I hope I save enough money to take her to either China or Thailand-Cambodia ;)
  • Yes it does. But I try very hard not to think about it because then I'd be wasting the precious time I have with them.
  • No. It's life, you grow.
  • It did..then I realized that its a part of life..they are both gone now :)
  • Not at all, it's all part of life. Because of my beliefs I have no worry or fear over aging. My parents are quite old now
  • No, it's kind of cute actually.
  • It really does. It's one piece of bad news after another, from doctors. It's emotionally draining.
  • reading all the comments made me very emotional... but besides that, i dont really know what i feel. i guess i dont think about it often and when i do i just think there not that old even though they r in there 50's soooo i guess i wouldnt really kno how to handle anything happening to them because im 17 and i still cant face the fact that they are getting old :(
  • when they are getting old you are getting older too!!!
  • Apart from feeling sad ,what can you do on aging?It's natures process to convert new one to old one and old one to remove from existence!
  • Why would her age sadden me?? She's lived a long and wonderful life.
  • Read the lyrics to "Stop this Train" by John Mayer, they are about not only your parents getting old, but you too... No, I'm not colorblind I know the world is black and white Try to keep an open mind But I just can't sleep on this tonight Stop this train I wanna get off And go home again I can't take the speed it's moving in I know I can't But honestly, won't someone stop this train? Don't know how else to say it Don't want to see my parents go One generation's length away From fighting life out on my own Stop this train I wanna get off And go home again I can't take the speed it's moving in I know I can't But honestly, won't someone stop this train? So scared of getting older I'm only good at being young So I play the numbers game To find a way to say that life has just begun Had a talk with my old man Said "help me understand" He said "turn sixty-eight You'll renegotiate" "Don't stop this train Don't for a minute change the place you're in And don't think I couldn't ever understand I tried my hand John, honestly we'll never stop this train" Once in awhile, when it's good It'll feel like it should And they're all still around And you're still safe and sound And you don't miss a thing Till you cry when you're driving away in the dark Singing Stop this train I wanna get off And go home again I can't take the speed it's moving in I know I can Cause now I see I'll never stop this train
  • Yes, It also hurts that I know anything can happen to them. I'd cry when I have nightmares of loosing them. (My mom is 40, and dad is 46 but my mom has a lot of problems while my dad works really hard)(It might not be old, but then again not many in my family ever lived to grow old- only my grandmother)
