Growing old scares me, I'm afraid of what being elderly will be like. Will i have someone to take care of me or will i be in a nursing home? If i am in a nursing home will i be properly taken care of? Will I be a burden to my family-my kids?Will I have alzheimers? Will i outlive my husband or will he outlive me? How will my health be? Will I be completely dependant on others for day to day things?
I think I am more afraid of growing old (elderly old) than of dying.
