Is aging sounding ominous?

If everything that I have been contributing to this blog seems ominous, I guess it could be. It all depends on how you look at it. It can be the glass half empty or the glass half full. As a caregiver, I prefer the latter and I am willing to deal with the consequences. I am  patient and kind and that is all I need to be to feel that I am displaying the fact that I believe that With Age Comes Respect.

I understand that as each of us ages, all of our vital organs will change; lose some of their functionality. This is consistent with the fact that our cells and tissues will also change and with it our body systems.

All living tissue is made up from cells, albeit different types of cells. Each cell has the same basic structure, however. Human tissue is made up of similar cells which all perform a specific function; each type of tissue that is grouped together forms our organs – so the body structure goes.

We have learned that there are changes with age and breakdown from the cellular level. As you can see, this is a trickle-up theory. If the basic structure changes, so will all structures stemming from that basic structure. Over the next few days, I will concentrate on more specifics. See you then.
