Age Rears Its Ugly Head

I recall thinking of turning 30 when I was a teen or in my 20`s and it made me shiver. OH GAWD!! I`ll suddenly get wrinkles all over my face and grey hair will sprout up everywhere. I hated the thought of age, I used to pull the grey hairs from my mother`s dark hair as a teen, she was NOT allowed to get old.

My Mother was a rather sexy woman in her 20`s and 30`s and I remark on that time especially as I used to hang with her a lot being an only child. She`d wear some clothes that didn`t cover all her tummy or something that just covered her butt on occasion. If we`d walk up the road, some guy might wolfwhistle or yell out something and I gave them a look that if they were right in front of me now I`d beat them to a pulp!!

So I was 30, 31, 32, 33, 34 and 35 and still, wow, no grey hair...where`s all these wrinkles??? COOL!! Although each day it was in the back of my mind. Each time I`d look in the mirror when I got up in the morning, or after taking a shower. Even to pulling out what I thought was grey hairs but just light. OKay, now c`mon, it`s very easy to do when you have quite dark hair...... (paranoia)

Then I noticed some fine lines around my eyes, well...I can live with that! I had joined a gym in 2000, got myself muscles, hehehehe. I enjoyed the physique so much but loathed feeling compulsed going to gym, as much as I always hated physical education at school, especially the running of the oval, gawd how farkin` boring lmao I decided to start running, I mean I already walked so darn fast now (a trait from my mother) what` walking lots faster, and OMFG,I liked it! I liked it so much it made me want to try even harder this time to toss in the cigarettes to see just how fast I could REALLY sprint!! Yeah, here I was, a gymjunkie and full on smoker, bit of a joke hey.

After learning I needed running shoes not just sneakers (FARK those shin splints killed) I successfully tossed the smokes and turned 36. From then on it has been going downhill!!

Can you farkin` believe it? Here I am trying to do the right things, give up smokes, cardio, exercise, eating good foods and I got sick for the first time in geez must be 10 years (besides an occasional yearly strep throat)! I tried to hit the road running again, I did in my hips, don`t know what I`ve done, but if I do it too much, the left one particularly aches some. OH and then winter, I HATE WINTER!!! My face breaks out in whiteheads and pimples and the rest of my body..I don`t know if it`s hormonal, winter or toxins from giving up the smokes. So I go to the beautician for the first time for some help. The shit she does and gives me for my face makes me get all dry and liney on the face.

I`m doin` real well here! I should be glad I don`t have grey hairs sprouting out of my ears and shoulders like some old dudes. And yeah I`m fixing this shit, well trying, or just living with crap, that`s why I`m still laughing I`ve probably just given some a nasty visual and if they met me would want to first look at me with their hands slotted over their eyes to deaden the shock. And my man will just shake his head at me and call me a whinging sow and I`m making a big deal of nothing.

Yeah, I`m whinging about age, we notice the differences, they are a lot smaller than the monstrosities we describe. I`ll keep searching endlessly for that elusive grey hair each day...and I`ll give myself grey hair and faster wrinkles just thinking about it I`ve learnt one thing though, never try and guess someone`s age. Many a time I have compared myself with other women, thinking...oh, she looks about my age...that`s cause of the lines around her eyes and I can tell her hair is dyed, only to be glad I didn`t verbalise a thing after finding out she`s still in her late 20`s. Thankyou for oily skin Mummy

    Quoting childofthe70s:
    your lucky, no grey hairs..i'm 34 and have more grey hairs than I care to admit...
Blame your parents, that`s always a good one But then ur a bloke and it`s even cool these days for guys to dye their hair. I see them here, black dye, cut like a mini mohawk (looks more like a bloody ferret ) Chicks get grey hair, we`re old, men get greys, they`re distinguished. My man got greys years ago, but he has blonde hair, can`t freakin well tell the grey

In the meantime, it`s one thing I`m enjoying, not having to take stock in hair dye companies, used to due my hair for fun oh like um, 15 years ago, now I couldn`t be bothered, the rest keeps me busy

Cheers all,take care
