Your lucky Debi, I am surrounded by old men.
Mentally I feel younger than I am, and I think everyone does, but getting MS has made my body (56) feel older (65), which isn’t a surprise to anyone that is physically ill. And the only people that care and understand are those that have MS. Most people don’t give a rats arse that I am ill, because if it doesn’t affect them then they have no awareness. It’s not until someone gets sick, they have the awareness. Until then I am on my own basically. And that’s how it has always been. Life can be much harder when your ill.
