    Sorry for the negativity and I feel as if I should warn anyone who's depressed to not read on because it's negative.

    I don't want to be old. I don't want my body to deteriorate and I don't want to lose my mental capacity. I don't mean this as insulting older people but it's how I'm feeling and, perhaps I'm unfairly thinking of the worst things, but I can't help it and I'm struggling to see myself having a future because of this.

    Any advice?

    Maybe keep fit and eat healthily, if you don't already? It might make you feel a little more confident and help ward off what you're scared of.

    Ive come to really respect older people. They are often really knowledgeable and you can learn a lot from them... and of course you can love life at any age

    We all get old and we will all die. What we do between now and then is up to us.
    Take good care of yourself through diet, exercise and being true to what you want in life.
    Don't live in the future, no-one knows what will happen there. The only true time we have is the present moment, try to enjoy it. Make reasonable plans/goals for the future but don't live there, it doesn't exist.
