I think at 56, I am still somewhat attractive. Certainly no less attractive than my husband is at 59, so we still find one another attractive.

I find Dinah's comment about "squandering" those diet cokes very interesting. Do you feel you have squandered your life? Used it up thoughtlessly and unproductively. I don't feel that way. I had some good years and some bad years. I raised a good child. I did some useful work. I feel now like I have a lot of wisdom that I didn't have 5 or 6 years ago, some idea of the pain life can bring and how to cope with it. Therapy has made me a much better teacher and mentor to my students. I don't feel my life is over by a long stretch.
