For you ladies who are gracefully aging, do you find that you worry more about your health as you age? I turned 52 recently and am noticing that every little twinge or pain I start worrying about it being something major. Just wondered if this is kinda normal or if I am just freaky?

I don't but then I've had major health concerns my entire adult life so I try to just live each day as it comes. I learned years ago that worrying doesn't do any good any way.

My SIL does. She seems to expect the worst.

I have been fighting health issues for quite a few years so for me it is one thing after the other.

I don't think so. I've had difficulty standing up when seated and have been going to physical therapy which has helped a lot. I have fibro and I think a little arthritis but I tell myself for a 75 year old I basically get around pretty good. I could be 20 and have some dibilatating condition. I sometimes wonder how my gall bladder is holding up though.

Yes I do..... I have notice that sometimes I'll have gas pains/stomach pains/heartburn if I eat a high fat snack or meal and I wonder if it's my gallbladder. I remember reading an article and a doctor saying the 3 risk factors for gallbladder dieases are the 3Fs...female, fat and 40.... UGH.

I don't think I worry more or that it's anything more serious but It does make me think I must work harder at keeping mobile, at rotating my joints to their full capacity, to standing up straight with my shoulders back etc....the little things. I just think the little things that physically age us will creep up on me if I'm not careful and I should work on the things within my control.

Today, I will be colouring outside the lines.

Oh my God yes! I turned 50 a few months ago and I feel I am turning into a hypochondriac! I lie in bed at night thinking I'm not going to wake up in the morning and no-one will know I've died in my sleep until weeks later! It's no wonder I don't sleep that much anymore!
