What happens to your body as you age? Why do things seem to fall apart?William Shakespeare summed up the disappointment of aging and the remembrance of youth in a poem.Crabbed Age and Youth Cannot live together: Youth is full of pleasance, Age is full of care; Youth like summer morn, Age like winter weather, Youth like summer brave, Age like winter bare: Youth is full of sport, Age’s breath is short, Youth is nimble, Age is lame: Youth is hot and bold, Age is weak and cold, Youth is wild, and Age is tame:— Age, I do abhor thee, Youth, I do adore thee; O! my Love, my Love is young! Age, I do defy thee— O sweet shepherd, hie thee, For methinks thou stay’st too long.Once you reach "over the hill" status, you may experience some very undesirable symptoms.
