  1. 1. It’s annoying how my joints creak when I first wake up in the morning.

    2. After a long day, my muscles ache and I just feel exhausted.

    3. Early evenings are hard because I start to feel so fatigued.

    4. My skin feels dry and wrinkled, which is not pleasant at all.

    5. It’s upsetting to see how much thinner my hair has become over time.

    6. My eyesight definitely isn’t what it used to be and that impacts daily life for sure.

    7. Similarly, my hearing has also gotten worse and that’s challenging too.

    8. Another thing that’s difficult is having worse balance than before – it makes me more prone to falling over unfortunately.
