    I'm afraid I'll become ill and not be able to enjoy my kids/grandkids.

    What was said in the above replies, as well as knowing I'm that much closer to death and have to depend on people if I'm unable to do things myself.

     I'm divorced and don't date.  I mostly go to work and come home and spend my time with my family.  Mainly my 2 grandkids.  I worry about dying alone I think.  I think about being old and by myself and it just isn't a good feeling.

    I'm afraid that I won't be able to get around much and therefore can't play with grandchildren.
