    I’ve been having many of the same fears that you just mentioned in your article, and therefore surfing the internet for answers – diet, exercise, even surgery. The best medicine for me, however, was reading about YOUR experiences. Sometimes, it is the soothsayer who has the true answers, and I certainly think that applies in this case. I’ve now concluded after reading your piece that aging gracefully and being at peace with oneself enough to do so is what really makes one beautiful, inside and out! I now officially reject all the shallowness and superficiality of the cosmetic Hollywood world, and that is how I plan on dealing with any fears I may experience regarding aging int the future. And yes, we HAVE gone backwards, in my opinion! Being a person who’d like to see some forward progress, I am pro any-movement-that-makes-a-woman-feel-like-a-whole-being….so, to hell with the chronological age thing/judging-a-female-on-whether-or-not some-man-feels-like-he-might-want-to-stick-his-penis-into-her, which is really what the whole physical aspect boils down to. Amen to real freedom for real women!

    Good for you, Margery. You have encouraged me to do the same. Thank-you.

    As the saying goes…I’m not trying to look younger, I’m not trying to look beautiful…I’m just trying to look better. I had a major facelift, plus some eye work and later some pullups. The difference is that I can look in the mirror without thinking OMG! I didn’t care what anyone else thought about it. I was very uncomfortable. My jowls and turkey gobbler were down to HERE, and my eye bags in the middle of my face. Why should I stay that way?
