There's no getting around it: with every breath we take—we're a couple of seconds older than we were before, and there's no going back. The last census showed nearly 60-million people in the United States are now older than 60. Face it: That's a lot of gray hair and bad teeth. Many of the things older adults once took for granted, may be dramatically changing, which can be disturbing. But no one should suffer in silence unnecessarily, thinking what they are experiencing is somehow unique. We're all in the embarrassed to death stage, so get over it! It's time for everyone past a certain age to be embarrassed together. Don't worry about relinquishing your individuality. We have a lot in common, but as our self-help book on aging shows, there are still many shades of gray we can embrace.
